Adobe Premiere CC Multichannel 5.1 Quicktime to 640kbps Dolby Digital AC3
I have a QuickTime master render which has a multichannel audio of a 5.1 surround mix that was done in ProTools (exported via Final Cut Pro 7). The tracks are in this particular order:
1 – Left
2 – Right
3 – Center
4 – LFE
5 – Left Surround
6 – Right Surround
I have setup the sequence with the 5.1 mix track option, but everything I have seen seems to be geared towards mixing the audio within Premiere. The mix has already been done and all I want to do is to export out for a Blu-ray and have Media Encoder take these six channels and create a compliant AC3 Dolby Digital encode.
I have used the track mixer to assign the tracks to their “pots” for each of the channels, then left the LFE positioned in the center and turned the LFE knob up to 100%, but I’m still iffy on whether this is going to mess with the mix in the resulting file, as I don’t want that, I just want each track properly encoded and assigned and left untouched otherwise.
I also have mono WAV exports from ProTools of this mix as well if that is any better.
Anyone have any experience with this workflow and can help me out? Thanks!
