    Quicktime Export - audio direct out - strange behavior

    Hi there,

    I regularly export my sequences with 1 videotrack and 4-audiochannels via quicktime-movie export with 'direct out' as audio option

    I have just upgraded my symphony suite from Version 6 to 8.1. After exporting a quicktime-video with 4 discrete channels, media composer 8 seems to mix those 4 channels: Channel 1 & 2 in the quicktime-file are empty, channel 3 and 4 seem to be a mix of all 4 channels. I need track1 in my avid timeline to be audiochannel 1 in my quicktime file, track 2 should be track 2 and so on


    - any idea what might cause the problem and any idea how to tell Sympony/Media Composer to export the audio channels to my quicktime-file correctly?

    I'm bumping this issue as we're running into exactly the same thing.  Direct out worked great in 6.5 and now in 8.1 we're running into 8 track exports that result in 6 empties and everything mixed down to the last two.

    Re: Quicktime Export - audio direct out - strange behavior

    I just upgraded from 7.0.4 to 8.1 and have the same issue.  I can't do a SAS QT export with direct out audio.  Well I can put it takes the 12 tracks and mixes them down to 11 and 12.  The QT still has 12 tracks of audio, but the first ten are silent. 

    I've tried every method and codec there is.  All sequence mix types, all output types (stereo, mono, 5.1...)  Nothing works.  I can export all the tracks if I export to a wav.  But then I get a poly wave and I need stems glued to a QT for final delivery. 

    I think I'm going to downgrade.
