  • Exporting QT file with discreet audio channels

    Posted by Shane Ross on September 13, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    Possible? I have the need to export ProRes HQ Quicktimes with 8 or 16 channels of discreet audio (for promo purposes). I can set up my sequence to have 16 channels of audio, I figured that out (thank you manual), but when I export, I am presented with only three options: Mono, Stereo and 5.1.

    So…how do I export a QT file with multiple channels of embedded discreet audio? Possible at this time?

    I’m pretty confident this is not possible, as I’ve heard other people requesting it for future releases.

    You’ll probably have to do it the slow way: export 16 individual tracks (!!!) and then assemble them with QT7 or FCPS3. (Though I imagine you already knew that.)

    This would definitely be a welcome feature for PPro….

    I’m no expert on this as I’ve never had to do it before, but you may be able to speed up the “slow way” by making 16 duplicates of your sequence (you can do this by right-clicking on the sequence in the project panel and choose ‘duplicate’, or copy and paste), then in each one mute all but one of your channels, and set up a render que in the Media Encoder…
