    Clueless how to mate the AC3 sound file given me with my video project

    msp1518 Level 1

      Hi gang. This morning I started researching how to do this, but haven't figured it out yet.


      My DSLR projct has ben edited on Premiere Pro CS5. I created the project in stereo and once I picture locked, outputted an OMF file to the sound mixer.


      He just delievered to me an AC3 file. I've no idea what to do next.


      I'd like to mate the AC3 with my video, of course. Do I do that in Premiere Pro? Do I export an uncompressed AVI video file and somehow mate the two together somewhere else?


      Clueless here.


      (of note: This Friday I am having a screening of three of my short films, including this one. The screener will be on DVD and has to be an auto play DVD, something you can pop into the player, no menus, it just plays and goes from video to video. I created a couple test DVD's in Encore and it worked.)



      Heres all the specs for the export:
