    5.1 SMPTE Waveforms Out of Order

    In MC 7, can anyone confirm that a 5.1 SMPTE clip with waveforms enabled shows the wrong channel order in the timeline? For a SMPTE clip (ProTools order seems ok), I'm seeing the waveforms drawing in the order of L R C Rs LFE Ls

    Thanks,

    I have seen this as well.  I think the audio meters are correct though.  Can you verify?

    The Audio Tool correctly shows SMPTE output, while the audio meters in the Mix tool always show ProTools order no matter what settings the clip has or what your output settings are. It's still confusing, but at least it's not a random order

    In my experience (v6) avid 5.1 implementation is flawed by smpte order handling internally.

    I think you are seeing this manifesting itself.

    Try a 5.1 audio mixdown and see if the order stays consistent. (In v6 it swaps smpte to film order.)
