How to export a multitrack quickTime mov?

"So I'm trying to export a multitrack quicktime movie, so that my clients on the other end can have all 6 audio tracks laid out on their end. I've tried assigning roles to each track, and exporting using the option (export as multitrack quicktime movie), but it always ends up collapsing all audio tracks into one single track. Has anyone found a more reliable workaround for this?"
