I'm working with 360 video files from the Ricoh Theta V that have 4 track spatial audio. (4 individual mono tracks).
Currently, I'm exporting the video track and the four individual channels separately, I then use Audacity to create a multichannel AIFF audio file from the four mono tracks and then recombine the video track along with the multichannel audio track to create a .MOV file with 4 audio tracks.
Is there anyway to export a movie using a Compressor Setting that will have the four track audio in the correct Channel Specifier-order?
It seems Compressor doesn't have a setting for the FL+FR+FC+BC--- I got the export to work (a mov file with 4 audio tracks), but the channel order seems to be scrambled.?
Thanks in advance for any ideas as it would save a lot of time.
Compressor can see that a ready to go(ready for YouTube) movie clip with the spatial audio track has 4 discrete channels. My goal is to be export an edited movie from Final Cut Pro X with the same properties and trying to create such a preset.

Thanks again, but still no dice. I tried exporting - sharing a Master File> Quicktime Multi-track file> but the resulting exported MOV file doesn't even show there is a 4 channel audio track in file properties.
I tried exporting using your suggestion above. (i also tweaked h.264 or ProRes which allows either AAC or PCM) but still no joy.
Even though the properties from finder doesn't show that I have 4 channel of audio---when I import the created file back into Final Cut Pro X, it imports and indeeds shows the four channels.
Unfortunately, I now have another issue---- I have to run the Google Spatial Media Metadata Injector Tool, but it doesn't recognize that the file has a spatial audio track and cannot add the metadata. If I don't add the metadata, then YouTube will not process the spatial audio correctly. Thank you so much for your help. I'm going to have to figure what else I need to do.
