vegas 13 with 5.1 wavs to Adobe Encore CS6
on Dec 23, 2014 at 12:42:24 am

So I just finished a 5.1 mixing session at a studio and I have 6 wav files for each of the 5.1 tracks plus two tracks for the stereo version. I've got all my artwork and extras in Adobe Encore and I want to burn a 5.1 from there. How do I do that?

I would render the audio as Dolby Digital AC3 using the 5.1 Surround template. At least that's what you would do if you were using DVD Architect Pro. Hopefully Encode will be able to ingest this file (you'll have to ask on the Encore forum).

Actually I have had some trouble outputting to Dolby Digital AC3 via Vegas before as I seem to get compression like crazy even though I have every setting I can think of off. Any one else have that issue?

Can you define "compression like crazy" in more technical terms? Is the volume too low? are there compression artifacts? is the audio compressed so that there is no dynamic range? ???

There is no dynamic range, the highs are brought down low and silences get lifted up like it's trying to equalize all levels. That was my past experiences with it, I'll give it a shot with these new wavs and see if I have to same results

Turn off the compression. Press the Customize Template button, go to the Preprocessing tab and under Dynamic range compression set both the Line mode profile and RF mode profile to None

Actually Dolby Digital AC-3 5.1 Surround DVD doesn't allow me to customize the template...it is greyed out. I do have the options of two templates, one with AGC on and one without, I selected the one without. This is the info it says under the template:

Audio: 448 Kbps, 48,000 Hz, 5.1 Surround, Automatic Gain Control off.
Use this setting for 5.1 Surround DVD soundtracks.
Audio: 448 Kbps, 48,000 Hz, 24 Bit, 5.1, AC3

Again, I'm not certain I still have the problem. I've rendered the files but haven't burned the Blu-Ray yet. I'll try to finish that today. Just listening to the AC3 it seems fine, but I don't have the greatest ear :(

It's not greyed out for me because I checked it before I answered your post. I'm not sure why you can't edit it. Are you using Movie Studio? That could be why.

No, I have Vegas Pro 13. The other templates customization isn't greyed out, but for Dolby Digital Ac3 it is. Not sure why

Do you have DVD Architect Pro? If you just have Vegas Pro without DVD Architect Pro that may be why.

Well it sounded good, but unfortunately I installed DVD Architect Pro, rebooted, ran both in administrator mode and without, and still had the customize option greyed out :(

It really sounded like the solution though.

Something isn't right. You should be able to edit the templates. I would contact Sony support to see if they can figure it out.

Yeah it is strange, also I have two computers with it installed and both behave the same so it isn't an installation issue.

OK I found that in my Vegas Pro 12 I had additional templates names DD AC3 PRO as opposed to DD AC3 STUDIO and the PRO templates I can edit. So all I have to do now is locate my 12 templates and copy those into 13

Yes, you didn't mention that you were using the Studio templates. You need to use the Pro templates of you want to edit them.

But what is strange is I don't see the PRO templates in VP 13 - I see the directory in the file I/O but it doesn't show up. I tried to import the AC3 templates into 13 but achieved only errors. My solution right now is to recreate the project in 12 and use the PRO output which seemed to work fine. Just a little disturbed that I can't render PRO right from 13. :(
