Adding Surround Sound Source Media Files to Batches
There are two methods you can use to add audio files to a batch to create a surround
sound job: an automatic method that relies on file naming to map the audio files to the
proper channels and a manual method that allows you to manually assign the audio files
to the channels.
Each method results in a job to which you can add a setting that supports surround sound
audio outputs, such as Dolby Digital Professional, AIFF, and several audio codecs in the
QuickTime Movie output format.
Some of the output formats have multiple configurations for the surround
sound audio channels. Be sure you know which configuration your intended playback
device requires. For example, the AIFF output format provides four different configurations
for 5.1 (six-channel) audio outputs, with the difference being the order of the channels.
