export 4 separate audio channels
on Feb 4, 2015 at 4:59:14 am

I need to export 4 separate audio channels for a TV station

Below is what I want to do
A1 full mix
A2 full mix
A3 Dialog only
A4 music and sound effects

Below is my results at this point
So far I get 4 separate channels, A1 & A2 are good (mix) but A3 & A4 are only voice.
I need A3 voice only & A4 music and effects.

I have attached a screen grab of my timeline mixer and export audio settings.






Audio is not my strong point, any help is much appreciated


I'm using Premier Pro CC v8.1 caravan.
Apple OS 10.9.5
2.7 GHz 12-core

My screen resolution is not good enough to read your screen shots but I watched a great tutorial on how to set up a new sequence in Pr with the multiple channels you want and to set the mixer to direct the outputs to different stems.

This isn't the one I watched but there's a little movie in this post that seems to cover the same thing.

I have read/watched a few tutorials and I am very close to getting it right, but still missing the target.

Here is what I am doing.

Goal:
to be able to export Mov with 4 seperate audio tracks (stems)

Current results:
I am getting 4 separate tracks but not mixed the way I think it's going to be mixed

What I am doing:

Timeline has 6 tracks A1 & A2 dialog, A3 & A4 music, A5 & A6 sound effects and NAT sound
timeline is set for multichannel
Audio Track Mixer is set:
A1 Assignment 1+2 3+4 5+6 Full mix
A2 Assignment 1+2 3+4 5+6 Full mix
A3 Assignment 1+2 Dialogue only
A4 Assignment 3+4 5+6 Music, effects and nat sound
Master Number of channels 4

Export audio settings
uncompressed
48000Hz
Channels : 4 channels
16bit

Audio track layout: single track

Channel layout Mono

Please help me if you can

Ron,

All your pans are to the center. This is ok for CH 1 & 2 full mix. You need to pan to the left for channel 3 and pan to the right for channel 4. This will force your stems to write to the correct channel. Based on your original post you need to mix down everything to just four channels. CH 3 need to be every dialogue track assigned to 3 + 4, but also panned to the left to force it to go to channel 3. CH 4 needs to be every track of Music & Nats assigned to 3 + 4, but also panned to the right to force it to go to channel 4. This should include tracks 5+6 if they are Nats or Music. Assign them to 3+4 and just pan them to the right so they all go into channel 4.

Andy

Thanks Andy this helps me understand how Premier handles audio.

I was also confused with what the station wanted, so I was having a hard time.

Turns out all I really needed was 2 stereo tracks. One with narration only , and the other ME& dialog

That I could figure out.

Although I do have anther dilemma I am truing to figure out

My 1/2 hour show consist of 4 to 7 segments. Each segment is edited in it's own timeline and then all of them placed in a master sequence for output.
I can only get the master sequence to have 1 stereo audio channel.

I need to have each sequence's audio channels appear in the master sequence so I can out as needed.
Do you know is this is possible .
