I have a Quicktime file from a video lab that has 4 audio tracks. 2 of the tracks are supposed make up the Dolby E Stream surround sound file.
For reference, this is the audio tracks in the Quicktime file:
Track 1 and 2: Stereo Tracks
Track 3 and 4: Dolby E Stream
Is there a way to load the Quicktime file in Adobe Media Encoder, and generate an AAC 5.1 Surround Sound file? Or as a fallback, to take the 2 Dolby E Stream files, and output the 6 separate mono tracks

Adobe Media Encoder does not natively support Dolby E decoding (AME does not have a built in Dolby E decoder). Dolby E is a codec that supports multi-channel audio. The Dolby E stream that lives on tracks 3 and 4 of the Quicktime container must be decoded back to PCM before any further audio edits can be applied. To generate a multi-channel file from the Dolby E stream, a certified Dolby E decoder is required.
SurCode for Dolby E Decoder is supported as a real-time VST for Adobe Premiere Pro (can also be used in faster than real-time to decoded to file). Trials, rentals, and full product licenses are available.
For a detailed decoding workflow, there is a tutorial video available: SurCode for Dolby E Decoder for Premiere Pro - YouTube
