Surround Mixing

Hi,

I've been doing a lot of surround mixing, ussually I send a single 5.1 file plus the 6 stems label and somebody else coded it to DVD Blue Ray and TV...

I dis a 45 seg surround mix for a logo and my ussual guy for coding is not here. But his partner is (who doesn;t work surround, ussually video stuff and Stereo Audio), and while he's doing it, the surrund is coming out the wrong speakers.

I went with the client to the vidoe guys office and he was exporting thru Final Cut Pro X, and he showed me the files were panned correctly but still wasn;t coming the right why.

I know PT does LCRLsRsLFE, but I'm not sure what's going on...

Thanks for your help..

A.

I think you can set the 5.1 in any configuration you want, not necessarily in that order.

Are the speakers connected to the correct outputs? ie is all the hardware connected properly?

Alternatively, with it being a video system, it could be connected L,R,C,LFE,Ls,Rs to make better sense of the pairs for swapping back to stereo etc?

Good luck.

Keep the files out of FCP arrange the channel order using QuickTime Pro and reattach the final re-arranged mix using QT pro as well. No confusion and no need to re render. I wouldn't be comfortable with fcp or picture editorial doing this task.

Might compressor be suitable for doing this?

Pro Tools 9 and earlier always exports interleaved files as L,C,R,Ls,Rs,LFE.
But in PT10 it's been changed to SMPTE standard L,R,C,LFE,Ls,Rs.

Not sure if this is what's going on for you or not. But it's a good thing to keep in mind.
