Bring back multichannel H264
With the MOV H264 codec you use to be able to do multichannel exports with any number of mono tracks. Now that you got rid of that, there's no way to make lo quality proxies with multichannels. I mean you have the H264 in and MP4 but you can only export mono, stereo. or 5.1. Why can't you just let the user choose the audio configuration. I would like to have a full stereo mix and an M&E stereo mix on a proxy. The audio config options for the H264 MP4 codec are really limiting.

Yes... h264 codec makes for super fast super light files. Just what you want in a proxy file right? So why don't you let us take advantage of it fully? Like so many features in premiere it's only halfway there.

In AfterCodecs you can choose 4.0 Ambisonic, 5.1, All Channels in separate mono tracks, All Channel in separated stereo tracks, All (mono) Channels in one giant multi track.
And it will reimport fine inside Premiere Pro as long as you configure your sequence well
