Audio Codec AAC LC (MUSIC)

Feb 1, 2013 3:11 AM

Hi all,

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

    I've found that I have to use Dolby Digital (AC3) instead of AAC with my H.264 files to get them to play via USB on my Sony BD player.  Give that a go.

    You'll find Dolby under the H.264 Blu-ray presets.
