I'm assisting a short film and the editor likes to do V1/A1 audio editing. In the typical scenario I would get BWF from the sound department with like 4 channels of audio (A1=mono mix, a2=lav, a3=lav, a4= boom). I would created synced subclips that have the full multichannel audio (so it would look like V1/A1-A4).
Then I would subclip out a separate V1/A1 clip that only has the mono mix on it. That way the editor can edit with the mix track and match back to the full 4 multichannel audio when they need to pull the ISO tracks.
However, on the zoom files I received it records the multichannel audio each as a separate audio track. So instead of 1 audio file with 4 mono tracks, I get 4 audio files each with a single mono track. The issue is when I try to create the V1/A1 subclip it only tracks back to the one mono track (because that is the original audio track).
Is there any way that I can prepare these multiple zoom audio files as one wav with multiple tracks? Thanks.
