Audio Format For Blu-Ray?

Question

In order to make a Blu-ray Disc in Creator 2012, what kind of audio files are required?

 

I have files exported from FCP & Adobe PPro, while the video files (.mpeg & .m4v) work fine with Creator the audio files(.ac3 & .wav) don't seem to be working. Everytime I bring in the video files, there is no audio to it. I tried changing the settings but still no luck.

 

Is there any specific file format that i should transcode the files to?

 

 

 

Here are my system specs

 

Intel i-7, 16gb RAM

Nvidia GTX 560Ti

 

Windows 7, Creator 2012

Adobe PPro 5

In PPro, in Export Media, try Format MPEG2 Blu-Ray, check Export Video, Export Audio, then under the Audio tab, check Dolby Digital and then under the Multiplexing tab, check TS next to Multiplexing.

 

That should connect the audio with the video so you can get the audio brought into MyDVD. I haven't used FCP, but if the above works for your files from PPro, try looking for how to multiplex the files in FCP.

Hi Karri

 

Thanx for replying.

 

So i did exactly as you suggested and the audio imported just fine.

 

However I encountered another 2 problems. First, upon importing the .mts file, creator started transcoding it again into an mpg. Without transcoding it would not let me import the file. Secondly, the playback of the burnt Blu-ray disc is extremely stuttery.

 

What could i be possibly doing wrong?

I don't think Roxio transcoding the file is unusual; however, the stuttering issue is beyond my scope. Hopefully one of the guys will read this and chime in.

??? as there is no such word as 'transcode' anywhere in Roxio :huh: Could you describe, in detail, what it is really doing???

 

Screen cap may help too, HERE is some info on posting them. ;)

 

It may also be helpful if you would make a 5 or 10 second sample and post them on a hosting site, like: LINK

 

Post ONE from PPro and the other from the competed BD Project (BDMV\STREAM\00000.mts)

 

Nothing is jumping out at the moment but I suspect it is just a matter of hitting the right combination of settings!

 

I don't have PPro but maybe Karri will pass along a screen shot of her settings for "Transcode" in PPro and what adding it to MyDVD looks like ;) (it will help us compare notes)

 

I have been burning BD & AVCHD's for about 3 years now as well as others here, so we should be able to figure this out :lol:

Post a small sample file on upfordown, http://www.upfordown.com/

 

What brand of Blu ray media are you burning to?

 

At what x speed did you burn the disc?

 

How long in playing time did you put on the disc?

Thanks for jumping in guys :)

 

Jim, screenshot of Roxio "transcoding" in MyDVD. (To get this I clicked Add New Movie and selected an m2t file). If you click "No" it will give you a File cannot be added message. (VW used to "transcode" anything recorded from TV in XP, which is why I was semi-familiar with it.)

I have not seen that since around Creator 2009 or 2010 - provided the files are reasonably close to the desired output ;)

 

Using Creator 2012, I grab any of my MTS files from my Canon and poof! They just go in!

This is why we were asking about file settings/properties AND would like some samples to play with ;)

Hey Guys

 

Sorry for the long silence. First I was busy with a shoot and now down with a fever.

 

Anyways, the transcoding screenshot is same as the one posted by Karri.

 

This is what my sequence settings are in Adobe PPro

 

DVCPro HD 720p 59.94FPS

 

I exported to H.264 Blu-ray and Mpeg-2 Blu Ray and both the files produce the same stuttering effect.

 

Can i somehow upload a sample file for you to play it on your computer to know what it looks like? Please let me know how and i will do that.

 

Thanx

I am using Optical Quantum 25Gb discs.

 

I burnt them at 4X.

 

In the project settings window in MyDvd i have tried both AVC and Mpeg2.

Post #6 first sentence..

 

Yeah, I read that but which file do you want me to upload?

 

Mpeg-2 or H.264? And how would they replicate the problem, beacuse its the blu-ray thats not playing properly. Otherwise both these files play fine in my computer.

BOTH!

 

We will make a BD with them and see what happens ;)

 

I curious as to why you are selecting "DVCPro HD 720p 59.94FPS"???

 

Source & Output should match each other and Output should never exceed the qualityh of the Source... Is your original Source only 720? Assuming it is 1280 X 720, that is the lowest quality for BD :huh:

The source footage is DVCPro HD 59.94fps, thats why i use that setting for output files.

 

Another weird thing i noticed is that even the menu background is extremely stuttery. The animation does not flow smoothly.

 

Here is a sample mpeg-2 blu-ray file.

binny, I doubt anyone here is going to download a download manager to test your file!

 

Please read post # 6 and try and follow it if you want help?!

Why would you need to download a "download Manager"?

 

When I clicked the dowload link suppied by the OP, the download started immediately with the Firefox dowloader.

"iLividSetUpV1.exe" has nothing to do with my download. I don't know why you show that in your post.

I think you clicked on the wrong link. There is no need for any download manager to download these files.

 

 

Simply click on the link right next to the hard drive picture and the file should download automatically.

Great!!! Thanks for hanging in there binny ;)

 

With your file I was able to confirm your findings AND have a very simple solution for you!!!

 

Solution: rename the file extension to mts... That is all there is too it B)

 

post-39730-099793100 1336053135.jpg

For whatever reason, the Transcoded m2t file has the Audio stripped out :huh:

 

You can see that in MyDVD when you attempt to Edit - Native Audio. It is grayed out:

 

post-39730-098150800 1336053129.jpg

And looking at the Properties in Explorer you can see it is present in your original m2t file as well as my copy of that file I renamed to mts:

post-39730-044307700 1336053143.jpg

 

But not present in the
Transcoded
mpg file...

 

post-39730-029862500 1336053138.jpg

Give the Rename a try and see if that works for you!

No luck :(

 

Even after renaming the file to .mts the audio does not import. And MyDVD still transcodes the file to .mpg

 

Are you using Creator 2012 or any earlier version?

Creator 2012!

 

LOOK at the Details of the file Properties with Explorer... See how the Audio is listed in each.

 

What do you see compared to my pictures???

Is it possible that his coputer is set to hide known extension? That sometimes screws up the naming.

 

Open a folder (anyone) and clcik on tools and then select folder options. Scrool down and tell Windows not to hide known extensions. It sound like you have already done this but I just want to make sure.

I simply changed the mts extension to mpg and Videowave loaded it with the audio intact and played it properly

For the last few years I have been a Mac-only guy, so did not know about the hidden extensions. Followed your tip and the file imported just fine(without any transcoding) alongwith the audio. :P

 

 

However the playback of the Blu-ray Disc is still extremely stuttery, even in the preview window. Did you also see it that way?
