Please could you bring me up to date with using 5.1 audio.
I remember reading that back long ago when Vegas Pro was a Sony product it had a Dolby rendering option which could render Dolby Pro 5.1 AC3 audio, which could then be used directly in DVD Architect to make Blu-ray disks with 5.1 sound. I don't know the version number of Vegas at that point.
Then when Magix acquired Vegas Pro the feature was dropped, I imagine there were licensing difficulties or excessive costs.
Does Vegas Pro 17 now have this feature again? Can it import media with 5.1 audio and render it so that DVD Architect can make Blu-ray disks with 5.1 sound without re-encoding it all? Is this now a standard feature? (I have been looking at the specs of V17 and I see a mention of 5.1 sound but it isn't clear to me if it now again does what I think the old Sony version did?
I hope I have explained my question properly, I am not an expert at this complicated subject. Thanks.
