    I have mpeg2 videos. Editing them in Vegas12 is fine with audio.
    However rendering to MAINCONCEPT mpeg2 for DVD ARchitect. Results in loss of Audio track. I see that I should render the audio with AC3 but Vegas will not permit this..What am I doing wrong? I like the improvements I have made editing the video would prefer to avoid converting the input file to a different format. In any case what format should I choose?
    Thanks

    Please explain what you are doing? Are you actually accessing the AC3 Audio Template?

    Render the Video and Audio separately, give them the same name,
    then drop it all in DVD Architect.

    As Steve said, you have to render twice. Once with MainConcept MPEG-2 and then again with Dolby Digital AC-3. You should give both files the same name so that one has an .mpg extension and the other an .ac3 extension. DVD Architect will then know that these two files are for the same video.

    Alternately you can use a free script plug-in from VASST that I wrote called VASST DVD Prep. It will perform the two renders for you and select the proper templates for each.

    As old as VASST DVD Prep is, it’s still very handy.

    Dear Steve and Bernard,
    Thanks for your prompt replies. I found what I had been doing wrong. I found that the render button on VG!@ would not work when I highlighted the audio render options. So I could not proceed after I had rendered the video tracks. It turned out that the Dolby AC Stero track has another option of Stero which is higlightes when you double click the button. Which I foolishly hadn’t done.
    Once I had chosen stereo I was able to render , and the audio track has now shown up in DVD Architect. I had spent several days wondering what was wrong and looking in the wrong places.
    Thanks VERY much for your kind help
