    8) How Can I create a 5.1 audio DVD from a surround bounce? Wich is the best software to create it, under a mac platform, and what is the process?
    I tried Compressor from Apple by using the Dolby 5.1 encoder, than tried to
    build the DVD from DVD Studio Pro without any good result. If someone have the receipe, it will be appreciate.

    That would be the way I do it.

    What results issues do you have???

    I don't know what's wrong with my receipe, but the result doesn't work on any DVD player. When compress, I import the surround file into DVD StudioPro than drag it on a button as a target so it can be access via the main menu of my DVD. Do I need to import the 6 original file or the file create by Compressor is alright. Maybe there's some special preference in
    DVD StudioPro, or a way to make it. I have a DVD player with surround analog output, but when I play the DVD I create, it doesn't play thru the surround out, but if plug it thru the stereo out, it works.

    Compressor does not contain the DVD audio codecs, take look at this.


    the Bronze version is the affordable one.

    Compressor contains the AC3 and PCM codecs he needs.
    I make my clients test discs all the time.

    The tools you are using are fine, may I suggest you use the help function in
    DVD Studio Pro. It woul dtake too long to go through it here.
    Its not the encoding, its the authoring that you seem to be having problems with.
