Joe Riggs Posted February 20, 2019 Report Share Posted February 20, 2019 Hello, I need to export a Pro Res quicktime with 5.1 and 2.0 mixes from Premiere.More precisely 8 channels of audio, the first 6 being the 5.1 mix, and the last 2 being the LT/RT. Premiere has a few different options to do this and I'm trying to figure out which is correct: Option 1 - settings In the image above, one can select either "mono" or "discrete" for the channel layout, which one should I select? A quick export with both settings and a get info on each quicktime file shows the following Mono Selected Discrete selected Option 2 - settings Exact same settings/layout as option 1, just the Audio Channel Configuration is different (see full configuration in 2nd pic). Get info on Quicktime export shows Option 3 - settings Following a reTooled.net tutorial, they set it up like this, the difference being that the 7th track would be a standard track for the Stereo file and not mono and therefore would not be panned to the left or right. When bringing these QuickTime exports into a Premiere timeline, all 3 options, show 8 channels in the correct order. However, is one of these options the correct/industry standard way for this 8 channels of audio, the first 6 being the 5.1 mix, and the last 2 being the LT/RT? Any help is greatly appreciated.
