Required Audio Formats for SD Projects
To ensure that a DVD will play on all SD-based DVD players, there is a DVD specification
requirement that at least one stream of audio for each element be in a specific format.
• For NTSC DVDs: At least one of the audio streams must be either PCM or AC-3.
• For PAL DVDs: At least one of the audio streams must be either PCM or MPEG
Preparing Audio Assets
Note: HD projects can use any supported audio format and do not require specific ones
to be present.
DVD Studio Pro verifies your project during the build process to ensure it is DVD-compliant.
The build log shows any issues that are found; however, the build will continue and you
can write your project to disc.
