5.1 Audio with Stereo Tracks 7 & 8

Post by JasonB » Tue Nov 05, 2019 8:14 pm

Hi there, I am creating a DCP and thus far have only worked in stereo but my new ProRes file has tracks 1-6 5.1 and track 7 & 8 LtRt. Is it possible to create a DCP with this configuration or should I just export a new ProRes file with only tracks 1-6? Or can I just export this DCP as is and it will only use my tracks 1-6?

I see the option to create tracks 7 and 8 in DCP O Matic as Hi/Vi but I'm not sure thats what I'm looking to do.

Attached is a screenshot of the audio map I am seeing with my 8 track ProRes.

Just leave those extra Lt/Rt tracks unchecked in matrix as shown, and everything is well.

Are you sure the channel order in your source file matches dcinema L/R/C/LFE/Ls/Rs ?
