    So are interleaved files a production standard? and also does it throw off your left and right (panned) waves? like if you panned something right wouldn't end up on the left as well as the right?

    Dude, I can tell by looking at some of your other posts that you are thoroughly confused about interleaved files. So if there are no objections, here's my advice: stop worrying about it and just do "stereo interleaved" when you export your mix. That is what you will need when you burn your audio to CD. It won't mess up the way anything is panned.

    It seems you're getting confused with the mp3 world's "JOINT STEREO".

    From Fraunhofer:
    "Joint stereo coding takes advantage of the fact that both channels of a stereo channel pair contain far the same information. These stereophonic irrelevancies and redundancies are exploited to reduce the total bitrate. Joint stereo is used in cases where only low bitrates are available but stereo signals are desired."

    "Stereo interleaved" on the other hand, simply means that the file is STEREO.
    A RIGHT and LEFT channel in the same file (as opposed to MONO)

    WAV, AIFF (& some other digital audio files) come in three basic flavors:
    - Mono (1 channel 1 file),
    - interleaved stereo (2 channels in 1 file)
    - split-stereo (2 channels in 2 separate files)

    my encoding has these options

    mono (self eplanitory)
    dual channel
    joint stereo (with two sub options simultaneously selectable)
    - mid/side stereo
    - intensity stereo

    i've always wondered what these mean

    You would probably want to do just the "Stereo" option there.


    Stereo Interleaved is the way to go when you have that option.
