I've used DVDWS 1.3 and Vegas to produce 5.1 DVD's by multiplexing the
video and AC-3 audio and bring the remuxed file into DVDWS 1.3. Can't
hear the audio in preview but it worked fine.

I'd like to upgrade to DVDWS 2 and asked about and was told it
probably wouldn't work. I've since downloaded and installed the DVDWS
2.0 trial and it indeed does not work.

My question is, Ulead on their site says that AC-3 is a supported
file format, "Dolby Digital Surround input and Stereo
encoding." On the comparison page with DVDWS 1.3 vs. 2.0 it
says. "MPEG audio (MPA), WAV, MP3, AC-3,WMA", as supported
audio formats.

I'd like to use Vegas as my editor and encoder, DVD Workshop 2 as
authoring and burning software. Is the failure of DVDWS 2 to accept
the AC-3 audio due to the fact that it's a trial version? Any way to
get the 5.1 audio into DVDWS 2?

I've tried the multiplexing technique and also bringing the AC-3
in as a second audio track. DVDWS 2 wouldn't accept it.

Any ideas on how to make this combination of Vegas and DVDWS 2 to
work?

Thanks for any help.

Did you import the video into DVDWS2 as a avi or a mpeg2 file?
I'm not certain if this will work but it might be worth saveing and
importing type 1 or type 2 files to see if that makes any difference.

I import the video as MPEG2 as I want to use Vegas to encode to MPEG.
In Vegas you create both a video (MPEG2) and audio (AC-3). In DVD
Architect you then chose both and get a DVD with 5.1 sound.

With DVD Worksop 1.3 you could multiplex the video(m2v) and
audio(AC-3) and it would work to create a DVD with 5.1 sound,
(although as I said, you can't hear the sound when you preview, it is
there when you burned the DVD.)

DVD Workshop 2 says it supports AC-3 audio format so it should work,
just wondered if it isn't because I'm using trial version. Don't
want to buy the upgrade if it won't.

Thanks
