It is extremely annoying that Premiere does not handle this seemingly trivial feature.
I'm not sure if it's been posted yet but there is a quick work around.
Just pull out the tracks from the MKV.
Get MKVToolNix which you should probably have anyway as it's the best MKV manager IMO:
This comes with a few command line tools and one of them is MKVextract.
Either use it straight up or get the GUI for it from here:
After running extract, you will have a video file (mp4/avc/etc) and an audio file (ac3/etc)
If the file is eac3, just rename it to ac3Ivan Gantchev supported this idea ·
