Introduction to Preparing Audio Sources

The DVD specification restricts the types of audio formats that you can include on a DVD.
There are also restrictions on mixing audio of different types within a track or set of menus.
There are also required audio formats to make a DVD-compliant disc.

Three areas in a DVD project can use audio sources:

Tracks: This is the primary area that uses audio sources.

Slideshows: This area can use a single audio source for the entire slideshow or individual

audio sources for each slide. See

Preparing Slideshow Assets

for more information.

Menus: This area uses audio sources when you are creating motion menus. For the

most part, audio sources used for motion menus must follow the same rules as audio
sources used for tracks. See

Preparing Menu Assets

for more information.
