Thread: AC3 Import

  1. Default AC3 Import

    I have access to the following expensive software which I want to use to edit some DVDs.
    Vegas 4
    Sonic DVDit pe
    Roxio 6
    None of the above is capable of importing AC3 sound, is there a logical reason for this or are the makers just trying to be awkward?
    Suggestions anyone?

    As I understand it, AC3 audio needs a proprietary bit of software for decoding/encoding that's licensed from the creators of the AC3 standard.

    It may be possible to install an ac3 decoder on your PC. Check the tools section at www.videohelp.com.

    Also, Nero 6 Ultra Edition (www.nero.com) comes with an AC3 multichannel codec, though it doesn't seem to have a 5.1 channel editting ability. I think it downmixes to simple stereo.
