I do not believe that PrPro can Export to Multi-channel (above 2-channel) WAV.
The only two choices that I know of are:
- Export to DD 5.1 SS AC3 w/ Minnetonka Audio SurCode Encoder plug-in (optional purchase)
- Per your workaround, Export as a muli-channel WMA, then break out each channel to a discrete mono file. This is what I do, to later Encode to DTS with the SurCode DTS Encoder (stand-alone, not plug-in)
Maybe others will have other ideas for you.
jep SurCode is working fine but it's a highly compressed format and not suitable as intermediate export format for digital cinema or other applications - even the Bluray department asks for DTS HD Master Audio...
Premiere CS6 is an amazing complex beast - able to utilize the CUDA cores of a GPU to speedup the processing - but a "simple" WAV export seems to be a problem ;-)
hoping for a simple way to do simple things - like export a WAV...
Glad that SurCode is working, and I agree with your assessment of the quality loss.
Hope that others have some useful ideas for you.
Can you help me with how you "break out" the discrete channels from a multi-channel wav file? Thanks!
