Exporting h.264 with 5.1

I've created a film that has a 5.1 mix that has been edited in Premiere.  I can export a ProRes422 file that has the 5.1 mix.  When I set the export to transcode to H.264, I can select 5.1 as an option, but the output source in the encoder window stays at stereo even though I've select 5.1 output.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Kevin. 

 

If I export the 5.1 sequence, it lets me do so in H.264 5.1 no problem. 

 

But if I take such an H.264 export and edit it and try to reexport, or use Media Encoder to reexport (say shifting resolution for different contexts) even when I change the audio settings to 5/1in the media encoder window, it does not udate in the output summary. See screen grab.

Hi, bfox,

I see the issue. To do such a thing, I would think you'd need to do so from the original sequence, make your adjustments in Export Settings, and then export once more. You might try a different format that can handle multichannel audio for re-edits, as I don't think H.264 supports that. 

 

Thanks,
Kevin
