hello all...firstly...i'd like to say "great friggin' job!!" on DVD architect...again sofo takes something that could be hard and makes it easy (and kinda fun)...here's my 1 major issue...let's say i want to make a film (a single video file) with a 5.1 soundtrack and a stereo commentary...when you drop in a video file, obviously you then assign the 5.1 track to it...the problem is that you have to have 2 separate video events and name them separately so that each on can have its own audio event 1 for 5.1, 1 for the commentary)...it seems as though you should be able to assign multiple audio files (up to 8 according to the DVD spec.) to a single video file and have them be selectable "on the fly" when watching the DVD...this makes for a very clumsy menu setup and it's quite unituitive to boot...what are the chances of this being implemented?

thanks alot

gary

alternate audio tracks are not supported in DVDA 1.0

Any idea if that would be easy to add in future bug fixes or is this a version number fix?

In addition, animated transitions are a major desire for me.

To do an animated transition, can't you just created your animated movie, point to it, and have it then automatically go to the next menu? I haven't looked at the beta in a while, so I'm not sure this would work.

As far as alternate audio tracks, I'd very surprised if it weren't included in a version upgrade.

That is fine for now. I can still use DVD jr. to make VOBs with up to 5 audio streams and VideoPack5 to author for those projects that require it.

Is there any time frame for adding multiple audio streams and subtitles to DVD Architect? Is this something that SF even wants to support?
