FCP - How to Export Multiple Audio Tracks


I'm still trying to get together deliverables and need some help.

The company wants 8 tracks of audio that are very specific as to what they are and what track they are on. How do I export multiple audio tracks from Final Cut so that they stay in the order that they are? I only know how to export two tracks.

Also, how do I keep all of those tracks the same in Compressor when I compress the video from NTSC to PAL?

Thanks for the continued help! I couldn't do this without you all.

The short answer is FCP can't export each channel like an Avid can.
The longer answer is SoundTrack Pro will do it (has a nice export function that will do what you want).

Although, if you want to stay in FCP just disable the tracks and export each channel separately.

Sharon, FCP is perfectly capable of exporting movie files with multiple audio tracks

Go to your sequence settings and set your Audio Outputs as desired, for 8 tracks of discrete audio then you would set 8 channel. In your sequence you then map your timeline audio tracks to the desired outputs by right clicking on or around each track's track lock (or auto select) button and mapping to the desired audio outputs from the context menu. Finally you simply export your sequence as a Quicktime Movie and that will create the movie with as many audio tracks as are specified for audio outputs.

What if in addition to the separate audio channels you also want to export a stereo mix to two additional channels? Can FCP do that?
