I've searched on here and the official Adobe forums but I haven't quite found the answer I was looking for.
I'm exporting deliverables and I've run into some issues/have some questions that I was hoping someone on here could help with.
My sequence is set to have multi channel audio with Number of Channels set to 8. (5.1+stereo L/R) The issue I have is that our files are 24bit 48 Khz MONO files (as they should be and the sequence audio setting is also 48 Khz) yet when I try to drag them into the MONO audio tracks, Premiere refuses to let me do it. I can only get the audio onto the timeline if using a STANDARD/STEREO track. Is there anything that could be causing this? Will using standard/stereo create problems with the export?
Also, I understand that I have to assign each track to an output channel (track 1 to channel 1, track 2 to channel 2 etc.) but before it gets to the export stage do I need to put each 5.1 track in the correct "space"/speaker? i.e patch the track through a 5.1 submix and then in the mixer assign track one (L) to the left speaker in the surround submix, track two (R) to the right speaker etc.? Or when I export the ProRes file just having the tracks/channels in the right order be enough?
Just to clarify I'm running on Premiere Pro CC 2015.3 on a 5K iMac (Yosemite). Thank you for your help.
