    Does anyone know if or where I could find some surround thunderstorm effects on DVD, or other cool effects? I would love to create my own storm and show off!
    Thanks

    Twister? Perfect Storm?

    Yes, those would work. But I was thinking more like just an effects disc... Without having to scan through a movie. Perhaps a disc with various effect tracks?

    Paul , I have a really cool three disc DTS cd(not DVD) set, which has thunderstorms on it. All of the tracks are in DTS 5.1 sound. There are also several other tracks such as space shuttle's lifting off, and tank battles. It really gives you subwoofter a workout. I think the offical title of the set is "Movie Tracks" I may be willing to part with it, if you have a good DVD title to trade.

    Marc.

    I didn't know that a CD could be recorded in 5.1 format.

    Yes there are quite a few DTS discs out there. I have the Eagles' "Hell freezes over" disc and a couple of others. Check here for more discs. The movie track disc you guys were mentioning is on the list.

    Well,
    if people are looking for Thunderstorm/rain effects in movies that are on DVD, you might want to try out
    The Little Princess
    We were shown this at Dolby LAbs, during the LA HTF trip, it had great dolby sound to the thunderstorm.

    So then, would a DTS CD sound the same as a DTS DVD?
