AAF Export | Disabled channels

Apologies if this is an obvious question but I haven't been able to find an answer.

I am prepping a 90minute sequence in Premiere for AAF export for Pro Tools and wanted to clarify the best way to deal with disabled channels in split audio tracks. Our interview audio have three different mics, separated to individual channels, sometimes with only one of the mics enabled. My question is: do I have to enable all channels before exporting the AAF, or will disabled channels carry over to Pro Tools as well? I want to make sure sound editor is getting all channels to work with.

Thank you!

Disabled tracks do not come over from a premiere AAF. I don't think muted clips make it either. If you drop the volume all the way down to infinity, i think they will come over.

+1 to this. I always tell editors if they are 1000% sure they don't want the clip then they can delete it, but otherwise just re-enable it and set the volume or clip gain to -infinity and that way when I see a clip with -inf volume I'll know it was meant to be de-enabled.
