Full answer has been already given in :
I've tested it (preset and export) : it works, but not fully, because the sound appears to be "MONO" in the
mp4 exported file.
(when putting the mp4 exported file on the timeline, there are 6 identical tracks, equal to the left original one - and 'properties' says also "MONO")
Sorry I've made some mismatch between the two links :
Then, details are already given at the full end of the second one (in § 'Discussion').
To be sure to understand, I've used a "test sound" containing 6 successive signals, one on each 5.1 track (L, R, Ls, Rs, C, LFE) so as to be able to hear clearly what happen.
Result is as explained in above mentionned link :
- the mp4 exported is in 5.1 : the 6 tracks are really there
- this same file on the timeline is in mono : only track L, no sound for other ones.
In conclusion all is OK for exporting audio 5.1 with Premiere.
Many thanks to A.T. Romano, and once more, sorry not to have read all in detail.
We are pleased that my works on Premiere Elements and 5.1 channel have helped you.
Many thanks for reporting on your results in detail.
Just a last question :
in EXPORT SETUP FOR 1080p50 AAC 5.1 CHANNEL (AVCHD.mp4)
you specify for VIDEO :
Pixel Aspect Ratio = Square Pixels
Profile = Main
Level = 5.1
Why 'Square Pixels" instead of "Screen 16:9" ?
and mainly, why this level 5.1 instead of 4.2 (which seems enough, as far I understood explanations found in Wikipedia) ?
And would be an interest in using profile 'High' ?
Profile High with Level 5.1 result in a wider range of bitrate settings with a higher choice of max. bitrate.
Profile Main and Level 4.2, bitrate range for Target and Maximum = 0.19 to 50 Mbps (megabits per second)
Profile High and Level 5.1, bitrate range for Target and Maxiumum = 0.19 to 300 Mbps (megabits per second).
In either case, you can always set for 32 Mbps for Target and 40 Mbps for Maximum which appears as the default if that is indicated for your particular video.
Again, with bitrate, it is the compromise between quality and file size.
The export used is characterized by Square Pixels (1.0). Think of the Pixel Aspect Ratio as a correction factor. With a correction factor of 1.0, the 1920 x 1080 16:9 remains 1920 x 1080 16:9 encoded.
More later today on that.
Thanks, it's clearer now.
But I'm always anxious to modify such parameters and then to generate a "non standard" file.
Glad the clarification helps.
In what ways are you classifying "non standard" file and in which ways is the end product failing you.
I mean a file which could be not possible to read properly on some equipment / or in some conditions.
In fact I know nothing about what is or not in conformity with the "standard" (the definition rules for a mp4 file).
