I am trying to output a DVCPro HD QT file for PBS specs. They requested Channel 1 and 2 stereo and Channel 3 and 4 mono. My composer gave me those files and they are set in my timeline. Now I am trying to export in compressor or quick time conversions so that the 4 channels will stay in tact and not mix down to stereo?
Here are the audio specs:
48K Sample Rate
24bit or 16 bit
Loudness: -24 LKFS +2/-2 db (peak up to -6db)
Ch1 & Ch2: Stereo Full Mix
Ch3 & Ch4: Mono Mix

PBS is notorious for having really tough technical delivery specs... and audio may be the least of your worries. They're very picky.
I'd try to find someone nearby who's done such work for them... and hire that person to help out. In the long run, it may be a LOT cheaper; you wouldn't have to keep doing the project over & over because PBS keeps rejecting it for one tech spec or another.

This exports a Quicktime movie, NO conversion, out of FCP. Is your sequence DVCPRO HD? Or some other codec? If another codec, you might need to export a QT, convert that to DVCPRO HD, bring that back into FCP, put it on a DVCPRO HD timeline, they add the audio to that sequence, then do the above tutorial.
