The latest version of Voukoder encoder supports audio AC3 Pro Stereo and 5.1 Surround. This Voukoder update is a good early anticipated Christmas and New Year gift for many users who work with video and audio editing.
Voukoder is FREE, download here:
I made a short video showing how to install Voukoder on VEGAS Pro and render the audio in AC3 Pro format. For that, I simulated creating a Bluray with AC3 Pro 5.1 Surround audio in Vegas Pro 19 to be used in DVD Architect.
The DVD Architect message list says there are no messages to display. DVD Architect users know that this message means that DVD architect will not need to re-render the video or audio because the files that were imported are already in the correct format and this is a huge time-saver. (This is shown at 4min 11sec in the demo video)
If you use "MediaInfo" or import the final files generated by DVD Architect into the VEGAS timeline, you will notice that the audio AC3 Pro Stereo or 5.1 will be perfectly compatible and recognized, with all audio channels distributed correctly. (This is shown at 4min 38sec in the demo video)
If you want like to contribute any amount financially to the Voukoder project, just enter the Voukoder website and leave your contribution. It's just a way to say thank you and encourage the developer to continue with this project that has helped many users who work with video and audio editing.
Thanks for your great job @Vouk!
