New to the forum, I searched around but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. I am looking to get a Movie edited in FCP ready to make a master copy on DVCAM. The agent I am working with needs Music and Effects channels. Just trying to figure this out, I will have my sound mixer make a regular mix that will take up channels one and two of the master, and I will have him make a mix without dialogue for M&E that will take up channels 3 and 4. Those will be layered into a FCP project and I can send that off to the tape dub company and they will make a 4 channeled DVCam master tape, correct?
How does it work if I have a 5.1 surround mix?
Also, could I make a prores output of the video and still have the 4 separate channels of audio? The agent will take the movie as either DVCam or mov. Could I make a prores version appropriate for my needs?
Thanks in advance.
