Hey Roxio - Multi-Channel Audio? Please!

Question

It looks like Roxio Toast is the only Blu Ray authoring program that works on a Mac; Adobe's Encore is discontinued.

 

I score silent films and author indie films for friends, and the ONLY thing missing from Toast is the ability to include multi-channel audio (in other words, surround-sound) on a disc.

 

Please, please, please, update Toast to be able to do this. Blu Rays can include 5.1 16-bit WAV files or DTS or Dolby Digital files. (Dolby Digital is the worst sounding of all three). DVDs can include DTS or Dolby Digital files.

 

I can still use my old DVD Studio Pro for the DVDs, but it doesn't support Blu rays, so now I'm stuck with either using a much higher video quality (Blu Ray) or a much more immersive audio experience (DVD), but not both. This breaks my heart.

 

So Roxio, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE figure out how I can add multichannel audio streams to a disc.

 

Thanks.

Perhaps you can add a HD video-only file to Toast for Blu-ray authoring, and have a matching separate blu-ray compliant audio file ready. Toast should detect the missing audio and ask the user to point to this file, if not auto-detected in the same folder. I know this works for DVD (compliant files will be muxed without re-encoding); I haven't tested this for Blu-ray.

I think the software lacks the needed pro audio capabilities and pro licenses (!) to do what you want, which is why you may need this weird work-around.

Thanks, but it just says "no audio" and seems happy with that fact.
