I have been using VP13 and DVDA 5.2 without a problem and recently I've "upgraded" to VP14 and I'm ready to render my first project in VP14. (I have had major issues with TP4 but these are resolved now I think)
When I go to render the audio the ac-pro option is no longer there. I thought I'd go back to VP13 which was the last time I saw it but when I open VP13 (build 373) its gone from there too!!!!! (I originally loaded VP13 from disc and it definitely was there at that point) so I have some questions. (I realise MAGIX have unilaterally decided to cut the ac-pro codec from VP14 and didn't tell anybody).
- It looks like I now have two instances of VP13 on my PC. One in C\Program Files\Sony and another within C\program Files\Vegas. The Sony version has the ac3plug and the ac3studioplug but the Vegas version only has the latter. My guess is that VP13 located under the "Sony" folder is the one out of the box that worked before and the other is the "pirate" that installed somehow when I updated VP13 from the MAGIX website. On futher inspection I can see that the Vegas folder only has FileOPlugins within it - nothing else???
- If I keep the version that enabled me to render using the ac-pro codec (provided I keep the right version) does that mean I can't use VP14 again or is there a workaround. I read the post about the copy and pasting of the codec and it looks pretty scary to me.
- In VP14 I do get an option to render the audio in "Surround DVD". Is this 5.1 sound and will I need to re-render this in DVDA5.2?
- My version of DVDA 5.2 has been deleted somehow in the install process. I have posted a question elsewhere about recovering this.
