No Ac3 Audio Support

Recommended Posts

I want to edit video clips from a DVD with Easy CD & DVD Creator 6. When I try to import the files I get a message that AC3 audio format is not supported. :) How can I import files and keep both the audio and video intact?

 

Is there a way to convert the files so they can be opened in Easy CD & DVD Creator 6? Is EMC 8 capable of importing video with AC3 audio format?

 

This has been a frustrating day. Any advice would be appreciated. TIA.

It is not supported in V6. It works if you don't edit but that is not what you want to do…

 

Short of upgrading (assumes XP/W2K) the only workaround is to use another editor to re-render the clip.

I am using an OEM and the upgrade option does not seem to be valid. :) Is there a free trial of EMC 8 so I can see if/how it works before I purchase?

Sadly there is not a trial version…

 

It does work with AC3 and the VideoWave is awesome when dealing with video editing!

 

There is not really an upgrade with V6. V6 is no longer developed but is still available to meet the needs of Win9x/NT users.

Guess it's time to give the Nero trial a try . . . Thanks for your help sorting this out. :)

 

Yes, your choice. But before you plunk down the $$$ shop around for V8 Platinum!

 

Both products have their own pluses and minuses. You won't find any forums like this for Nero, you will be strictly served at the pleasure of their Tech Support.

 

Of course the installed base at Nero is a fraction of Roxio, so maybe they will have time.

Honestly, I don't know. I did a search on the Roxio site and this thread is the only place it is mentioned. I looked on the products page. Nada. I assume it's a Roxio product? *confused*

 

the marketing types at Sonic (who bought Roxio subsequent to EMC 7, and the product of the merger is EMC 7.5) decided to make 3 Versions of EMC 8. Platinum is the most functional of them.

 

However, you never have said what Operating System you have. If you don't have a minimum of WinXP SP1 or Win2000 SP4, you can't run the newer Versions.

 

At any rate, the full Version always has a lot more functionality than the Basic Version - and you only have the Basic Version of 6, which means it has a lot of limits the Platinum Version would not have.

Thanks for responding, Lynn.

So would Platinum be Easy Media Creator™ 8 Suite or Easy Media Creator™ 8 Deluxe Suite. Sorry, to be so dense but I'm still confused. I'm thinking Dazzle might solve a lot of my problems.

My system has XP Pro SP2/P4/1gig RAM and lot's of HD space so no problem, I think.

There is actually 3 versions of Easy Media Creator 8. Essentials, Suite, and Deluxe Suite (none labeled as Platinum). The Deluxe Suite is the most full featured one. Here is a link to the products that has a detailed comparison chart of them (if you haven't seen this already).

BTW, a video card that fully supports directx 9c is most important for v8.

Yes, I have been staring at that for several days trying to figure out which one would suit my needs. :)

I have an NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 4000. Will it work???

Since only you can decide in the end which version best suites you, we can only offer our opinions if you arre interested. To that end, if it was me, and wanted to have the most flexibility and options for video work, I would go with the Deluxe Suite version.

 

To the video card, no I didn't leave a 0 off, mine is a MX 440. Your MX 4000 should be fine from the looks of it on their website. You would want to make sure you have the most current drivers installed from them, which you can find here:

Just remember to read their install hints first (which basically say to uninstall the old drivers before installing the new. Don't install on top of the old). You can find those here:
