I would really appreciate it, if you could help me choose the sound format of my video, because I'm not familiar with sound formats and I'm really new to it.
Okey, I'm a Vegas Pro user. I'm currently shooting a short film that will be displayed at the local theater. I am really excited about it and I want the film to be perfect. So here I am asking for your help.
After reading some posts, I was about to go for the FLAC audio format. But then I saw that some people don't like it. I thought about the AC3 format, but I don't know if it is better than the FLAC... So please help me here, because I'm just a newbie!

Thank you!

Doing anything other than the standard will really cause problems.

For origination and editing/mixing that means uncompressed (wav) at 48kHz sampling rate and 16bit depth.

The audio must only be compressed for the delivery. If you are delivering a file you must check with them what file formats they can accept, if you are delivering on tape, DVD or Bluray you don't have a choice anyway.
