This is a problem that has been around for a while. Basically whenever I take 24bit 96k montage and export it to 16-bit (w/ crystal resampled + dither) montage, it exports a 32bit file instead. I can still burn cd’s and ddp’s from the 32bit 44.1khz montage but when I export the files as individual tracks they’re still 32bit even though I’m exporting ‘regions’ as PCM, Wave, Stereo, 16 bit, and 44 100khz as normal.
I don’t seem to have this problem when working with 24bit 44.1 files. The only noticeable difference is that the original montage was 96k.
It really is a strange problem. Can anyone offer a work around?
Hi PG, Yeah I always specify exactly what output I want because of this problem but it doesn’t help. So in my case when I render a 24bit 96k montage with a specific output of PCM, Wave, Stereo, 16 bit, and 44 100khz it still ends up as a 32bit file.
I’ve double checked everything numerous times over the past year. In the end I just res-ave it as 16bit file, because bit analysis states it’s now only 16bit. Is there a way for me to just change the header? That’s what seems to be the problem and not the actual rendered file.
