Here's a quick guide we made recently for CC for 4 tracks. Just adjust to 8 tracks if that's what you need
1. Unless your sequence in Premiere is already set up for multi-track audio, you must create a new sequence.
2. In New Sequence dialog window, choose 'Custom' then go to 'Tracks' tab. Master should be set “Multichannel”, and Number of Channels “4”. (or 8 if that's what you want)
3. Paste all the media from the old sequence into the new one. The Full Stereo Mix should go into Track 1, and the M & E Stereo Mix into Track 2. (That's from our Nat Geo template, yours will be different)
4. Click on the Audio Track Mixer Tab and set Track 1 to 1 + 2, and Track 2 to 3 + 4. (again, change to suit)
5. When ready to export, in Export Settings, you need to manually set output format. Start with video:
Video Codec: Apple ProRes 422 (HQ)
Field Order: Progressive
(Also our Nat Geo delivery spec)
6. Click on Audio Tab and set Audio Codec to “Uncompressed”, Channels to “4” and Audio Track Layout to “2 Stereo Pairs”.
7. You can test your export by dragging it into any new sequence. - remember to monitor the correct channels if you only have stereo output.
Hello this was truly helpful however I don't have the "Audio Track Layout" section. Is there a reason why this is happening?
Make sure you've followed all the steps - some codecs don;t work with multichannel, for example.
This one is important - from the Audio track mixer. You can change them by clicking on them and choosing form a list.
When it's all set up correctly you should be able to see this in the export window audio tab
Hope this helps.
