I'm working with 360 video files from the Ricoh Theta V that have 4 track spatial audio. (4 individual mono tracks).
Currently, I'm exporting the video track and the four individual channels separately, I then use Audacity to create a multichannel AIFF audio file from the four mono tracks and then recombine the video track along with the multichannel audio track to create a .MOV file with 4 audio tracks.
Is there anyway to export a movie using a Compressor Setting that will have the four track audio in the correct Channel Specifier-order?
It seems Compressor doesn't have a setting for the FL+FR+FC+BC--- I got the export to work (a mov file with 4 audio tracks), but the channel order seems to be scrambled.?
Thanks in advance for any ideas as it would save a lot of time.
Compressor can see that a ready to go(ready for YouTube) movie clip with the spatial audio track has 4 discrete channels. My goal is to be export an edited movie from Final Cut Pro X with the same properties and trying to create such a preset.

Thanks again, but still no dice. I tried exporting - sharing a Master File> Quicktime Multi-track file> but the resulting exported MOV file doesn't even show there is a 4 channel audio track in file properties.
I tried exporting using your suggestion above. (i also tweaked h.264 or ProRes which allows either AAC or PCM) but still no joy.
Sorry for the wrong message previously. I got too excited thinking Apple had updated compressor to properly export a 4 track Ambisonic track directly. It can render 360 file with 4 tracks, but the channel specifier is for a surround track and not spatial audio.
So I am continuing to export a video track and the 4 audio tracks separately. I then use Audacity to create a 4 channel AIFF file. Combine the video with the new AIFF file and then run the Google Metadata Injector tool.
I've submitted a request previously and crossing fingers.
