Media Composer 101 – Advanced – Multi-Channel Audio Exports

I was challenged today about a tutorial I did over 2.5 years ago, on how to export your QuickTime movies from Media Composer with multi-channel audio.  This technique is exceptionally important, especially if you’re looking to deliver your shows/spots with 5.1+Stereo audio.  It’s actually much easier then you might think, and believe it or not, you can even do it to non-Avid codec QuickTime files.  If you’re working with a “Codec Friendly” resolution, you can export that same codec back out of Media Composer, and retain the multl-channel audio.
