I like to be able to capture gameplay in a format that is ready for editing in Adobe Premiere Pro. Which is why I still use Dxtory. When I record with Dxtory the file I get in the end allows me to import the file into Premiere with all the audio tracks onto the timeline without transcoding, but when I use OBS with the same video/audio codecs selected I dont get the same results. I feel like there is some kind of muxer settings I can use or audio but im not sure. I've tried using the write_channel_mask (see "AVI Muxer Options (FFmpeg" below) parameter because in the ffmpeg documentation it said it's used for compatibility with software that only supports a single audio stream in AVI, but no luck. I've also tried recording to MKV format and remuxing back to avi, still no luck. I have been searching for a solution for this for months now but had no luck. If anyone can help me out I'd really appreciate it!

So this is right here is my problem. I would like to get right to editing, but with the way obs makes it I would have to extract the audio streams everytime.
So how can I have OBS structure the AVI file the DxTory does?

TLDR:
I am trying to take advantage of the FFmpeg custom output so I can record to a codec that is built for editing so that I don't have to waste time transcoding the footage or making a proxy later, like what I have to do with the standard recording. Just trying to improve my workflow.

ffmpeg output usage is at-your-own-risk. We can't really help with it here, just point you at the ffmpeg documentation... it's really a 'not our circus, not our clowns' situation.

If it isn't outputting correctly, we can only really advise recording to MKV and remuxing to MP4 for use with most editing programs. A remux takes seconds in most cases, and can be set (in Settings->Advanced) to be done automatically on completion of a recording. I can confirm that both DaVinci Resolve and Vegas are able to see and break out multitrack audio in remuxed MKV->MP4s, though I do not have a copy of Premiere to test with. I'd be happy to provide a sample known-good remuxed .mp4 if needed, for testing purposes.
Also, I may be misremembering... isn't AVI generally a deprecated format in most workflows, at this point?

Thanks for your input on this, just didn't know if there was anything I could do about it. And yea I guess AVI is quite an old format but it is also the only format that the codec I use supports, Magicyuv.
