    I've been playing with Besweet for a while, and AC3 encoder too.

    I just can't find where to input the 5 seperate channels.

    I just want to make five seperate WAV files into a single AC3 file, for use as a movie warmup.

    I'd like to have different voices coming form all the channels before I play a movie ----- group sounds in the rear, maybe a cell phone in the Left front speaker, some kids playing in the front right speaker that sort of thing.

    Any help from somebody that's done this would be great.

    I also need this to go on a CDR for use in a cd player!

    Thanks
    Brent

    Nobody can help?

    I guess I can record a bunch of short WAV files and run them track after track!

    I think you might need to get some professional (expensive) grade software to do 5.1-channel AC3 encoding. But I'd love to be proved wrong on this issue. [​IMG]

    Trust me I would LOVE to prove you wrong, but the only 2 programs I've seen are Sur-code and Soft Encode. They both do Track and position for WAV files, all the other fun stuff to. The only problem is in the demo versions you can't encode anything so they are pretty much useless.

    I'll keep looking.

    31. i have six mono waves and would like to encode it to a multichannel ac3/ogg. can BeSweet do that ?

    yes. you need to create a ".mux" file, i.e., a textfile with the name of the mono waves :

    g:channelFL.wav
    g:channelC.wav
    g:channelFR.wav
    g:channelSL.wav
    g:channelSR.wav
    g:channelLFE.wav

    then feed it to BeSweet : -core( -input channels.mux ... )

    Well Rob it's a start, but you are speaking BLAHBLAHBLAH to me.

    Are you using the command line, or the interface, or even Belight??

    I'm not confortable with command line since I've never worked with them.

    "yes. you need to create a ".mux" file, i.e., a textfile with the name of the mono waves :"

    OK so create a file with the location of the 6 WAV files RIGHT or the actual WAV files?

    Thanks, you're beginning to make me smile")

    Go to command line, find where besweet.exe is (and go there) and type in:

    besweet -core (-input filename.ext)

    Where in filename.ext you have typed in the locations and names of the separate channels.

    Sorry to leave everybody hanging. I had a busy weekend. [​IMG]


    That info came from the doom9.org forums.

    I have never performed this procedure but from what I understand, you create a text file with the ".mux" extension, containing the locations of your source WAVs. Then, at the command line, type the besweet command like Sami says.

    Lemme know if this works! Good luck.
