Dolby E and FCP

Hi All,

I have a question about laying off a Dolby E broadcast wav from a FCP timeline onto HDCAM using KONA2.

First - Will it work?

Second - What settings are needed for audio in FCP to do this? (stereo or dual mono)

I've previously ingested a dolby e stream from HDCAM and had success laying it back down but I'm concerned that it may be different with a file.

Does FCP alter the bit depth or anything about the audio files after importing?

Thanks for the help.

Dolby E is a pure data stream wrapped in a PCM file. FCP can be set for stereo or dual mono as long as the levels are unity and hard panned Left/Right. If you make sure FCP is not altering the signal in any way that is ideal. Do not panic if the levels show as clipping into the red. Levels must be set to zero.

Beware of monitoring as it is a full level data stream so it will be just noise into your speakers.
