    Sonic DVDit 6 cannot import sound file .m2a from Sorenson Squeeze v5.1, generated from QTREF Mov in AVID XpressDV

    Workflow:

    1. From Avid Xpress DV 4.8, exported completed seqence to Quicktime Reference and automatically open Sorenson Squeeze. (Squeeze V5.1) QTREF settings are all default  except Display Aspect Ration set as 16:9 and AVID CODECs option selected.
    2. Squeeze opens and displays source files OK
    3. I use Link Audio option (tried both with and without this)
    4. In Squeeze, I selected Format & Compression Settings as  MPEG-1/2.(mpg)DVD_PAL_lg
    5. Applied format settings and sqeezed file.
    6. Squeeze completes with no errors and generates two files - *.m2v, *.m2a
    7. Opened DVDit 6.0 and try to import m2v file.
    8. File Imports but with message stating ilegal DVD format and may need transcoding at time of burn.
    9. Clicked OK and copied video source to timeline.
    10. Runs preview OK but does not generate any sound.

    Quicktime is upgraded to latest version 7.5 (861) as required by Sorenson Squeeze v5.1
    AVID XpressDV v4.8

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get this to work, or should I try outputting from AVID as AVI instead of QTM Ref ?

    Note: I have only ever successfully generated DVDs by either working direclty from .mov files or AVI files in DVDit!

    many thanks

     change the letters ".m2a" to "'.ac3"

    Hi Mark,

    Just export the audio from Xpress DV as a .wav file, and use that in AvidDVD with the video file you've already got.

    ciao,
