QuickTime 720p with 5.1 sound
on Oct 4, 2009 at 1:07:55 am

Hi Everyone,

I have this problem. I have Apple ProRes HQ 720p QT file with 5.1 sound. What I need to do is, I need to compress it with h.264 compression so it would fit into DVD9 disk but to keep the 5.1 sound in it. Problem right now is that Compressor 3.5 does not allow me to do it. It does, however, the compression beautifully but does not keep the 5.1 sound. Is it possible somehow trick the Compressor 3.5 to keep it?

Running Mac Pro Octo-Core, Leo 10.5.8, Final Cut Studio 3, if that matters.

Thanks in advance!

Best Regards,
Karlis Jaunzems

The sound should be processed separately into an ac3 file.

For what intended goal?

Basically the project itself is finished. It was a concert DVD with both 2.0 and 5.1 sound tracks. I just want to do for the team a 720p version of the concert as a mov file to give it to them. That is the reason I'm asking. If there is not workaround I guess I'll have to suffer with it and give it to them as 720p mov with Stereo sound.

If you're trying to make a standard DVD, then h.264 is not compatible. You need to use MPEG2.

sorry. i guess i didn't explain correctly. i'm not trying to make a dvd. i'm trying to make a mov file which would fit in a dvd9 data disk (~7.3gb big) hopefully with 5.1 sound. It's not meant for any type of stationary players, just for computer to play in quicktime player.

thus far i've managed to create only h.264 mov file with stereo sound, but i'd like to have it with 5.1 sound since we put so much hassle in it. is there a possibility through either compressor 3.5 or qt conversion to make h.264 with 5.1 sound?
