    8 channel audio out Quicktime?

    I'm on a PC, MC 5.5 and am trying to output a HD 1920x1080, 23.976 Quicktime with 5.1+2.  Is this possible?  If so, how?  The Quicktimes I was given have 24 tracks of audio, but I'm not sure what machine made them.

    Try this:

    -set audio output to direct out 

    -make a video mixdown of your sequence in the desired codec and put it in a new videotrack

    -export the sequence as a quicktime reference file (do not choose mixdown audio!)

    -open the quicktime reference file in quicktime player 7

    -use file -> save as -> self-contained movie


    now your have a multichannel quicktime file

    However, the above assumes you have six audio tracks for 5.1 and two for a stereo mix on separate tracks.  You can't take 24 tracks to do what you want.

    MC doesn't encode Dolby surround have to get those six files from some other audio program and have them aligned in your timeline properly before export.
