    Hello,

    I have a mkv (Image: H264 Audio: AC3 5.1). I want to convert it to MP4 (Image: H.264, Audio: AAC 5.1).

    I tested with Subler, with the multi-channel option (the only one for which Subler said there was 6 ch), but MediaInfo tells me that there are only 2 channels.

    Importing the file into Adobe Premiere Pro CC, there has 6 channels, but only 2 emit sound. Others are empty.

    How can I convert AC3 to AAC, keeping a true 5.1 surround sound, and editable into Premiere Pro?

    Thank you !

    Try using Handbrake - in the audio options, there is, I believe, an option for audio pass-through of the 5.1 AC3....

    Another option is Aimersoft's Video Converter Ultimate, which has audio-only converters built in - you should be able to convert the 5.1 AC3 to 5.1 AAC, separate from the video.
    Then, in Adobe Premiere, import your video file, remove its audio track, then add the AAC 5.1 file you previously created.....

    Let me know if you're still confused or need further assistance (I'm an audio surround mixer/masterer... can definitely help you out here....)

    Good luck!

    JT
