Good point.

The question has to do with the difference between the two files I'm working with.
From my perspective (i.e. editor as opposed to FFmpeg genius) I've got two source files (on DNx, one ProRes)  that are the "Same" audio configuration: 8 mono tracks.
Neither is 7.1 AFAIK
I'm trying to generate h264/mp4 files with 8 audio tracks that mapped the same (i.e. a1 source = a1 transcoded, a2 = a2, etc).
FFmpeg handles the DNx / MXF source just fine, but not the ProRes / QT.

Trying to figure out if I've created the ProRes / QT in a way that makes the audio files unrecognizable to FFmpeg.

Looking at FFmpeg's asplit, I wasn't immediately able to see how that would help in this situation.
