I am currently trialing both FCPRO X and PRCS6 as I am looking to move up from iMovie, I shoot on a Lumix GH2 at 1080/24p AVCHD and the reason I am drawn to PRCS6 is its ability so see the source files directly and it works well on my mac. I have a problem with PR when exporting that I do not have in Imovie regarding sound, that I hope somebody can help me with.
I have a Sony Blu-ray player coupled up to my 55" Sony TV (no Blue-ray burner on the mac where PR is located) which I use as a test of best quality output. in iMovie I can share the final edit and copy this to a usb stick or sd card and it will play exactly as expected on the TV via HDMI. The file is as an MPEG-4 H.264 @24Mbps 1920x1080/24p and using the imovie option for audio of the aac lc music codec. I can't replicate this using PRCS6 I can get the vision to play as expected but no sound, I can't seem to find the same codec as an option in PRCS6. it appears that the LC variant is the only one that will work. is there a way of getting this codec in this programme or is there another programme that I can then pass it through to get this to work.
Thanks in andvance and apologies if I have missed the obvious
Jim, thank you for your swift response, very much appreciated.
I am afraid I have to ask if could help me a little further here, do yo mean from within PRCS6?, if so
In the audio tab
I only have the following otions:
Unless I am missing something obvious
Sample rate set at 48k
Channels set to stereo
Audio quality set to high
This did not work for me, my Blu-ray reacted with 'corrupt or unsupported file' I tried many combinations, but in the end had to admit defeat.
In desperation I tried a programme called handbrake and ran the original MPEG4 H.264 AAC file through that, keeping all the video settings the same and just altered the audio codec there to AAC(ffmpeg) as I could not see a AAC LC(MUSIC) and this option seems to have cured my problem. I need to test a bit more to see what, if any, difference there are between the iMovie version and the one edited in Pr and altered in Handbrake.
I wonder why Pr does not include the LC codec?
Thanks again for your time and your swift replies.
