Being a semi-amateur, I'm in need of a few pointers regarding FCE. I recently screened a film in my buds theater, I exported the video with the Audio Pan set to 0 in FCE. Meaning, instead of the audio blasting out of speakers on the left, the audio blasted out of both speakers at the same time. The film was shot on the Canon 5D Mark II, the audio was recorded directly to the camera from a Rode Video Mic. My questions are somewhat hypothetical, let me know if anything sounds off base;
1 Why is it that the audio automatically sets to a -1 Pan in FCE, or simply put the left speakers? Why isn't it set to +1 or 0?
2 Would exporting video filmed in 4x3 or 1.33 aspect ration stretch, if exported in 16x9? - I've learned a great deal about aspect ratios yet, when it's time to export, I get caught in dead ends.
