I have the latest version of Hitfilm Express installed (9.1 etc), am I doing something wrong or does HitFilm not like to import the second audio track from a video with two-channel stereo? (.mp4)

Thanks in advance for your time and attention,

    Hitfilm doesn't see second audio tracks in mp4 (note mp4 official specs only support a single audio channel (stereo) and multi-track mp4 audio is a "hack.")

    Unfortunately you'll have to use an external audio editor to extract and save the audio for import to Hitfilm. Audacity is free, cross-platform and has tons of YouTube tutorials.

    Thanks for the tip! I'll give it a go!
