    import AC3 5.1, export only stereo

    peterk123W

      hello

       

      this is my second issue.

       

      I have audio files in 48khz AC3 5.1, I can import them to my m footage, but from that moment on it is only stereo.

      Premeiere Elemty V13 does not support AC3 5.1?

      I am also not able to tell PremElemts to use my ASIO, it only shows a WDM-driver which is not active on my computer, there is only ASIO and my window 7 sound does the "bling" on every speaker in the testpanel.

       

      (my sound equipment does AC3 5.1 I make the surroundfiles by myself, in VEGAS they work correctly -tested this on a computer with my friend...the files are OK)

       

      togehter with my 60P issue those issues would bring me to ask the community.

      from ADOBE there is no answer except :"we support AC3" but AC3 is not AC3 - there is 5.1 which I use and 2.0 which I dont use.

          Premiere Elements (any version) does not offer 5.1 channel sound in any of its burn to end products - not Dolby Digital 5.1, AAC 5.1, Windows Media Audio 10 Professional 5.1....I am understanding AC3 as representing Dolby Digital which could be stereo (2 channel) or 5.1 channel (6 channels).

           

          But, you do have limited opportunities to export to file a file that has 5.1 channel audio. It is not going to be Dolby Digital 5.1. It will be

          AAC 5.1 or a Windows Media Audio 10 Professional 5.1 channel. The key to using even those limited possibilities is to be working from a

          project preset described for use with 5.1 channel audio. And, not all the Adobe project presets come with 5.1 channel included in its description.

          The answer has been to make your own project preset to include 5.1 before opening your new project using your user created project preset as the project preset

          in your new project.

           

          I have done extensive and innovative work in the matter of Premiere Elements and 5.1 channel. The following is the first in a series of reports of how tos on this

          matter.

          questions or need clarification on the matter.

            I am very surprised about your competence, from which I hope I can make use.surround is not THAT important. the 60P issue was much heavier. my little testvideo looked realy bad in 30P...now that I can export 60P I will try to do some 5.1 videos.
