I had a question about sending a QT file with 5.1 and stereo embedded. I have sent this type of file before to aggregators but my question is: if I send this type of file to a venue that is not being clear on what format they prefer and say they can do both but I don't want to only send 5.1 if I'm not sure they have proper set up and want to avoid sending two different files, if I send them a file with the 7 tracks (5.1+stereo pair) will they be able to play it from a surround sound set up or if they can't and play stereo will it work and sound alright?
Thank you for you help!

I am working on a feature doc in a 1920x1080 Apple Prores 422 HQ timeline with black bars cropping the image to our preferred size which is 1920 x 804. By the distributor we were asked to deliver a
feature file Pro Res
with textless elements on HDD or digidelivery
this is because they will be in charge of making DCP etc.
My questions are:
1. How smooth or even possible is a move from 422 HQ to 4444? I couldn't simply change the timeline settings without messing something up correct? Would it be a big difference if we delivered a 422 HQ file? I can ask them but wanted to be a little more informed before suggesting it.
2. If they are going to make a DCP from this file that means that it would have to be kept at 1920x1080 ratio right? Meaning if they were planning on making a 2k DCP they would have to stretch the file and so we should make sure they are not planning on doing that? Potentially we could send them a 2k digital file already cropped to our desired size (2048x858) so they could move forward from there without compromising quality.
Thank you to all for your help!
