For DCP, I understand there can only be:
LRC (or LCR... I’m not sure) (3.0),
My film has just dialogue throughout, sprinkled with foley such as a radio in the background playing static, eggs cooking, and a song while credits roll.
It’s basically 2 hr of dialogue in a room.
Do I need 5.1?
If I only need mono or 3.0, how do I export from premiere pro?
Right now I only have 2 audio tracks in my timeline (as I have exported all the tracks before as 2 files and worked on them in audacity, then brought them back in premiere.)
1 dialogue and 1 efx ( not crazy stuff, just like I mentioned above, radio, kitchen stuff and one song during credits)
I agree. Overkill indeed. But I was under the impression that stereo (LR only) for dcp ( to play in movie theaters) is not the way to go because there is no Center. I’m looking to put everything on the center (which is located behind screen). Doesn’t that leave me with option for mono? Or LRC? Because stereo does not have center, correct?
You are right, but I never made a DCP with Premiere, so I don't know.
But, why not toy around and make a few short tests?
In the DCP package you'll find the sound as a PCM MXF, that is easy to analyze to see what happens.
