What a great thread.
Charles (and others), is there a reason why BGs, Foley and Sound Design elements are all folded in one FX stem?
Wouldn't it be more useful to have them separated?

when talking about final stems- which would be the Music, Dialog and Effects, it pretty much the most minimal separation of the elements for delivery-

it would be quite unusual to delivery just those-


the last film I did I had stems for the following-

Dialogue
Voice over
Effects
BG's
Walla
Music
Music Undipped A
Music Undipped B (the track had overlapping music elements, so a single undipped music stem would have been impossible

the finally, a filled Effects Stem for the M&E.

in addition to this, there were the Stereo (LoRo) and 5.1 printmasters.

Gotcha.
That's pretty much what I usually deliver, but I am a freelancer and by reading your post I thought that for some reason in the big studio world it was simplified to three stems and couldn't understand why.
Thanks!
