    Export to QT Movie Audio question....

    Hi

    I have mixed a stereo soundtrack for a Project in Protools and imported the 24 bit wav into MC7. 

    I have exported my final master sequence to QT movie and the result when looked at with quicktime player Inspector is now 16 bit. 

    Is it possible to get a 24 bit master? 

    I went back and added dither plug in to MC7 however this on listening made no difference to the sound of the audio so Im not sure if Im losing bits or if I would be better served using advanced dither in Pro tools and exporting a 16 bit file for MC.

    The end result of this will be web so it will then become AAC anyway, however it would be good if I could get the highest quality bit rate on this as its selling Audio post services :)

    Would appreciate any input on this....

    you need to set your audio project settings to 24bit and your QT export settings to 24bit too.  Also, if you've imported your 24bit wav with project settings at 16bit it would have resampled it on import.  You'll have to change settings and start again.
