Hi all,

My client is asking for the following track breakdown on a prores file:

 

CH1

Full Mix Stereo L

CH2

Full Mix Stereo R

CH3

VO & Dialog (Discrete Audio)

CH4

NAT SOUND

CH5

Stereo EFX L

CH6

Stereo EFX R

CH7

Stereo Music L

CH8

Stereo Music R

I have 2 channels of VO and 2 channels of NAT sound that both need to be mixed to mono.  If my output were stereo, I would just pan them center.  In this circumstance, however, I need both VO channels panned left, and both NAT channels panned right, to get them to 3 and 4 (correct?).   BUT--if I do VO -> 1,2 + 3,4, panning them left will mess up my stereo 1,2 channels. 

Is my only recourse to work with everything panned center, export a stereo mixdown, and reimport it and place it back into my sequence?  And then I'd have to make reroute everything so that nothing goes to 1,2 except for my mixed-down audio?

Thanks!

-Justin

I've never worked with anything that complex.  All I can suggest is the following.  Perhaps it will answer some questions.

Thanks for the response, Jim.  I'm not sure if that's up to date or not to help.  Adobe has made some really big changes since then.  I wish they would make better documentation, or at least standardize it along the lines of something like Pro Tools.
