    Default DVD Architect Pro 5 - How to add 5.1 audio?

    I am at a loss for how to add 5.1 audio to my DVD. I want to have stereo mixes and surround mixes for the same video.

    SIDENOTE: While this DVD is for my portfolio - do "normal" DVDs and BluRays have both stereo and surround or do they just put the 5.1 and then let players downmix? I want to be prepared for anything.

    So anyways, I select the 5.1 dolby digital file and it adds it to a new track. First off, it's' adding it as a stereo track.

    I've read that it does this. Beyond that, I see the Properties option for "default audio" as stereo or 5.1 - this is just the one that plays when no option is chosen, right?

    So no matter what I select there, or elsewhere - it ends up being a stereo audio playback. Even when the dvd says on the player that it's "3/2 surround" it is just stereo.

    Thanks....

    When you created the 5.1 track in (Vegas?) did you have the surround sound mapper and not the standard MS mapper selected? Did the 5.1 sound like 5.1 in Vegas?

    I believe that to encode Dolby Digital 5.1, specific encoding software is required.
    For example, MASI :: SurCode Dolby® 5.1 Encoder for Premier

    In Vegas there is an options in project properties for 5.1, then render out via the ac3 I believe, I did it once many years ago.
