I remember this was asked in the past but I'm not sure where at this point, will FLAC ever support 8+ channels? I am asking for the ATMOS audio tracks, are the extra channels over 7.1 different channels or just extra information from these channels? Thanks.

I think the limit is 8, however for practical purposes, I think if you wanted to encode some ridiculous number of channels you'd probably just encode them as independent channel pairs inside a container.
