I have a problem with shortening a DVD project:
I made a PAL DVD a while back, and an Audio guy produced one long AC3 file for the hour-long DVD. I had several video clips in the timeline (one for each chapter). Now the client want a 30 min. version, and I have to delete some of the chapters. But when I split the AC3 audio into several clips and position the clips in the appropriate times to match the rearranged video clips, each audio clip starts playing the sound from the beginning of the audio file! I tried changing the source in-point for each clip in the clip properties window, but even if the source in-point time is correct for each clip, the sound I hear is still the very beginning of the original long AC3 clip. What am I doing wrong? I don't have any software that will edit AC3 files, and the original audio guy is not available anymore. Please help!
Because of deadline we had to rush the audio part of the job to someone else, and he used Pro Tools to edit the AC3 files (5.1 surround). It's pretty hectic at work right now, but I will try your suggestion as soon as I get my head above water. Thanks again!
