Pretty simple really - just that! An option to re-render in mono would be a big help in terms of managing deliverables quickly and easily
We will look into this request, would you be looking to sum more than one channel to mono, or a simple 1to1 channel to re-render export? What is your current work around to deal with this delivery spec?
For me specifically this comes from the need to be supplying a mono dialogue stem to the editorial department during the temp mix & pre-mix processes. So it would need to sum the dialogue group (bed plus any objects) into mono. A mono dialogue stem is sometimes also requested as a helper track for foreign language M&E deliveries.
You also raise a good point regarding 1to1 channel export and I'm sure that others would have a usage for exporting individual object channels as mono too - I could imagine this would be useful in the preparation of immersive formats other than Dolby Atmos. This however is not something I have personal experience with so I'm not fit to comment.
Current work around for creating the mono fold is to export the stereo re-render and then fold that to mono using a third party utility.
Understood. I'll add it the feature request list. By third party do you mean Pro Tools?
