Does anyone know of a good link for an in depth explanation of the Dolby 2.0 AC3 encoder for Compressor?
I'm working on a DVD that has three tracks of audio and I'm getting a vide bitrate too high error on the build when I use AIFF 48:16 audio.
It works when I test it with the default AC3 settings, but the audio then sounds too low sometimes (i burned a comparision DVD with the aiff on audio track 1 an the ac3 on track 2 to see the difference).
So basiclly I'm looking for a good link or any tips on explaning the diferent options of the Dolby encoder and what they mean to figure out the best settings to use for my project.
It's a standard miniDV project originating in FCP. Two audio tracks of the dvd with be composite mixes (on normal, and tv censored) and th other will be a commentary track.
I noticed a commentary option under the Bitstream mode drop down menu in Compressor- not sure on how this performs and if it's a good idea.
Also I'm not sure of what to use for Dialogue Normalization -27db seems pretty low. Does this have any relation to if you used -12db tone to calibrate the mix?
In the Bitstream tab, what should i set for Dobly surround mode? We never did a surround mix so should i put not encoded or not indicated?
Also in pre-processing tab, should i change the Compression drop down to NONE? I think I read that somewhere before.
Any help or steering in the right direction would be great! Thanks.
