exporting 5.1 ac3 audio
The audio must be 5.1 aac.
That's a contradiction. AC3 and AAC are two differernt codecs. Which do you need?
Using AME and the SurCode Plug-in, here's how the dialog screen looks for the Audio Tab in PrPro 2.0. It should be similar in CS4:
You do have the Minnetonka SurCode DD 5.1 SS plug-in, right?
Good luck, and hope that this is helpful.
PS - note that in the screen-cap, I have composited the dialog box, as though it fully displayed, with no need to scroll it. Depending on your display, you may need to scroll, and your scroll bars will look different from what you see here - just ignore that part of it.

Hi Wine Snob
I've got a similar problem. I am using CS 5 and have been able to import an AC3 file (the file was created in another program). It plays fine. All good on that front.
I want to export it as an AC3 but can't see any options in the sound section for AC3 or any other dolby encoding.
Does: Minnetonka SurCode DD 5.1 SS plug-in, take care of this?
Ordinarily I would use Audacity (saw the forum discussion: Free AC3 encoding workflow ) , but I have cut a section of the vision and sound out in two places, assuming it would export fine from Premiere. So I didn't keep an eye on the number of frames. So transferring over to Audacity could get messy. If SurCode does the job and doesn't cost an arm and a leg, I'd be happy to buy it.
Appreciate your previous tips. And any other advice you might have.
