    surround mix in mc6

    Hi,
    I have a video clip where I have to insert the 5.1 audio tracks, the files I received are separate for each channel, as can be grouped together in a 5.1 track?Big Smile

    Unfortunately, MC won't recognize that these tracks are part of multichannel groups.

    IMO, the best way to bring them into Avid as a group is to rename them, so that ABC.L.wav becomes ABC_1.wav. R.wav becomes 2.wav. C->3 LFE->4 Ls->5 Rs->6. Then check the 'autdetect monophonic groups' in the import dialogue box, and set the multichannel format to SMPTE 5.1 (not 5.1 Film, that would be L,C,R... in stead of L,R,C...).

    Ok, but once imported the material as redirecting all clips on a 5.1 track?.....I'm going crazy!

    Re: surround mix in mc6

    If you set the multichannel format correctly during import, the clip will be treated as a 5.1 SMPTE clip and you can splice it into any 5.1 track in your sequence. Or, after import as a single 6-track clip, you can choose Clip->Modify->Set Multichannel Audio and select 5.1 SMPTE.

    You may then still need to make your sequence 5.1, as well as your outputs (if applicable). To the top left of your audio mixer, you can set the sequence format (mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1) as well as the output format for your system. In Audio Project settings, you can also choose the output format and the output channels you want to use for that.

    What do you mean by "disclaims"?

    Re: surround mix in mc6

    I'm sorry, I try to explain, I have a sequence in media composer 6 with 5.1 audio tracks, I create aaf file for protools, then I open the session in protools and the files generated by mc does not give me the tracks 5.1.
    5.1 The original files are imported into avid already 5.1

    Re: surround mix in mc6

    What version of PT? What type of AAF export and what export settings? Note that there is an option there that lets you unfold 5.1 tracks into individual mono tracks. Sounds like that could be happening.

    Re: surround mix in mc6

    Job, and others.

     

    I wrote 2 BAT files according to Job's instruction (windows only):

    Download them here

    They rename the 5.1 and 7.1 files for use in MC:

    -SURROUND_5.1.bat
    -SURROUND_7.1.bat


    Place one of the bat files you need, into the folder with the 5.1 or 7.1 mix exported to BWF-M from Pro Tools monophonic BWF files. (better to first make a copy of that folder) And then execute the .BAT file by double clicking. All your files will be renamed now, avoiding the usual errors by manually renaming.

     

    Hope you like it.
