Default Re: 5.1 file channel order

When exporting there are various factors that dictate the channel order of the resultant file - for example, exporting as AIFF will result in a different channel order to exporting as WAV."

Also the last Q/A which mentioned exporting in the Working with SMPTE-ordered multichannel files in Pro Tools article has been updated June 20 2019.

I don't know what kind of double-speak that tech is talking but the KB article we are all talking about is the one you linked to at the end just now. You can clearly see that is so in Paulo M's post earlier (post #3) and Tom Lowe's post (post #21) earlier. It was also wrong at the end of 2018 when we discussed it in this thread: http://duc.avid.com/showthread.php?t...light=Its2loud

And it was wrong.

They updated it today to where it is right. But previously it had the incorrect information and it has been that way for a very long time.

There's saving face but no one was confused between exporting and importing.
