I have several scenes for a video in which I have not created the Premier Project files as 5.1 nor multichannel for the audio. I edit the video then use Audition Dynamic link to mix the audio then send it back to Premier. I know you can export and change the audio to be 5.1 with a dedicated track specifically for 5.1 audio files, but now i'm hearing that doesn't actually make the video 5.1 or it won't translate the 5.1 mix after exporting for either a home surround sound or a theatre.
If this is the case, does that mean I will have to create a 5.1 or multitrack channel porject sequence and copy the timeline for each scene and put it into that project sequence then mix in 5.1 and export? or is there a simpler way?
