Thread: 5.1 dolby digital with hd video in vegas 7?

  1. #1

    Default 5.1 dolby digital with hd video in vegas 7?

    I would like to know if it is possible to create a hd video in sony vegas 7 (full version) that has dolby digital 5.1 as the audio.

    I have been trying to do this for a long time but have only found pcm audio as the option with avi files. Or wmv audio for wmv files. In ulead video studio you can make mpeg-2 (sd) videos with dolby digital audio, but it doesn't seem possible in vegas. The new version of ulead vs11.5+ can create hd videos with ac3 5.1 but the file format (evo) seems unplayable even in powerdvd8deluxe. I then renamed an evo file to mpeg, & that is very jumpy in powerdvd & windows media player. Yet hd wmv's with a higher bitrate (made in vegas) play fine.

    Ideally I would like to create an mpeg-2 (1280x720) with ac3/dolby digital 5.1 audio (using sony vegas 7 full version).

    Unless I'm misunderstanding you, you render TWICE - once for the video and once for the audio. You import both files into your DVD authoring package.

    If you have DVDA ensure both your video and audio file have the same name (not extension though!) and reside in the same folders and this will happen automatically when you import the video.

    Thanks, I'll have a go at that.
