If you have a mixed codec timeline and mix down as SAS you will get a file with mixed codes. The metadata of the file will be flagged as the first codec used.
This normally isn't an issue as most players can switch codec mid playback but not always. So it's best to mix down or transcode first.
Selecting custom codec and then choosing a DNX codec in the QT option is a real no no due to gamma shift issues.
