4 Audio Channels in File - How?


I'm exporting an 89-minute film to Compressor using Apple ProRes 422 for the video.

I need tracks 1-2 to be the composite audio, and tracks 3-4 to be the M&E tracks.

My transfer facility says my project must be in one complete file for them to transfer it to DVCam. So what do I need to deliver to the transfer facility where it's one file, yet it has all four audio tracks on it?

make sure your sequence setting's audio outputs tab is set for 4 channel audio
then in your timeline make sure you assign your individual audio channels to the correct outputs (click on or around the track lock icon to get the channel output assignment popup)
duplicate your audio tracks as necessary to provide the M&E audio assignments to channel 3 and 4 outputs
