Thanks in advance. Would anyone know if it is now possible via python to do the conversion from 5.1 + Stereo Audio to Stereo on a timeline? The classic remove 1-6, and promote 7&8 to 1&2? I believe the last time I looked into this, you couldnt do it to the actual timeline you right clicked on, but the script would first need to make a duplicate timeline in a Shared Library.
Thanks again in advance. I tend to just hack around in python, so it would be great if I could save hours going down the coding rabbit hole for what might be a dead end.
I’ll take a look, but TBH I haven’t done much python in the timeline, and I would love to be able to script some audio tasks. I’ve long dreamed of being able to select a folder full of all of the audio files for a spot and have a script that looks to see if “L” or “Ls” is in the name, and then put the clips in the right place.
Following up… this is pretty much solved.
The workflow would be to use the surround_sound_channels_mute and unmute scripts, then just export using Mixdown to Stereo.
Bing bang boom.
Does this work for multiple selections?
I haven’t messed with these scripts in a while, but they should work with multiple selections.
