I need to export an XDCAM HD422 25i for broadcast with eight mono audio tracks from final cut. In the audio roles I can define stereo tracks or
mono tracks, but there seems no way to split the stereo tracks to left
and right channel. I can only export a mixdown of everything to every
mono track, so the output will be mono. How can I export eight mono
track with the configuration L - R - L - R - L - R - L - R ??
I tried to assign mono track roles and split music in left and right so that (mono) dialogue will be routed to the left AND to the right and for (stereo) music the left track goes left and the right track right but that does not work, as the volume of the final track will be different than what I am monitoring. Music will be the same volume but the mono tracks are much louder as they are with full volume on both tracks. And its impossible to get the volume right - even without music.
So the only way I see is to export a master file in stereo and than convert via compressor to XDCAM HD 422 with eight mono channels. That seems to work but its a few additional steps.
Is there a way to send the file directly to compressor with audio roles applied?
I can only see a way to send the file without audio roles, but I need the stereo mix on channel 1 and 2 (L-R) and the mix without voiceover on 3 and 4 (L-R).
