Vegas 20 stops rendering ac3 file just before 100mb.

I want to make a DVD & Blu-Ray disc for a client. Worked fine in Vegas 15, 17 & 18. Now I use 20 and when I ask to render an ac3 file of my 1 hour 11 minute project, it only renders about 20 minutes of it (99,743kb). How do I get Vegas 20 to render the entire thing for DVD Architect version

Try encoding the AC-3 file using HOS (Happy Otter Scripts). Or.. as a workaround, you could use PCM <.wav> audio files, which is a compatible audio format for both DVD and BD. DVD Arc can also convert PCM audio to AC-3 if it's absolutely necessary.

Thank you rraud. I did not know I could use wav files (never wanted to use AC-3 files in the first place). I should have checked that out years ago when I updated DVD Architect from version 4 to 5 (I've been around since Vegas 8).
