i am doing some edit of dialogue on a short movie,I am mixing in LCR and I have all dialogues at Center and all the rest on LR, now the director want me to render a lr audio to use in the movie he wants just export from final cut as h264 probably to send to someone via vimeo or whatever. So i have the problem to mix from lcr to Lr with protools 10. What is the best workflow to make the thing properly ?
It will take a little bit of work to get it to sound right for your mix, but in essence:
Create a session with 5 tracks in Pro Tools. Put your L, C and R on one each. Your remaining two tracks will be for an LC bounce, and an RC bounce.
Reduce the level of your C track by approx 3dB.
Now, bus the L and C to LC and record, then bus R and C to RC and record.
To monitor; bus LC to Left Speaker and RC to Right Speaker, and hear if your C components sits well in the mix. If not, adjust the level of your C track and repeat until you're happy.
