This week I had some questions that you all answered and I was able to get my job done and I thank you all for your input. Now I have something that I hope is a simple question. Even though I have always rendered a separate .ac3 file for the audio on every project I have done in the years past, this week I ended up on my Audio Page for my Custom Settings - Main Concept MPEG-2 where I checked the box for "Include Audio Stream" to finish my last project that had the widescreen issue. Now I can't figure out if it's supposed to be checked or unchecked when rendering a separate audio track as I always have.. Regardless I just rendered a project that when I previewed the "movie" I had no volume. I tried it with the box checked and unchecked and it didn't make a difference on the "Movie Clip" when I previewed in on my TV or on my computer. When I brought the project into DVD Architect the audio is there and it's there on the DVD once I burned it but it is not on the Movie Clip. What the heck could I have possibly done? Every other MPEG-2 or MPEG 4 Movie Clip I preview has audio except this most recent one. Obviously I don't do this full time but I hope to be doing more in the future. I've got to learn this and remember it but if any of you can help me here, of course I'd appreciate very much.
