I've imported some MXF XDCAM 422 footage that has 8 mono channels of audio. Actually audio on 1&2 and channel 7. When I export out using an MXF XDCAm preset for 8 mono channels of audio it comes in as audio on channels 1&2 and all others empty. It seems to have mixed 12&7 down to 2. Is there a way to preserve as an audio pass through of the original channel assignments? it doesn't have to be XDCAM it could be Pro Res.
I honestly didn't assign roles because I thought there would be a quicker way to simply do it as a straight export without having make a multi track quicktime. Ive tried so many different export window settings I feel like I've covered every iteration. I did get it to work by assigning each track its own role (A1-A8) and then doing the export Roles as a multitrack quicktime. That did work although I did notice about a 3db level difference on each track. I was trying to avoid having to do that. It's very time consuming.
Roles and their increments are assigned automatically. For example, if you import a video clip with 8 channels, all channels would be labelled "Dialogue-1...Dialogue-8." In the Import Window, you can override but I don't think that's what you are looking for. In other words, you will still need to create and assign custom subroles. I hope that helps
