Playing back of AC3 would be an issue. You can install the right kind of component to allow that, but it would be a tough requirement to impose on everyone who wanted to view your movie. If you were to use MPEG StreamClip to do the demuxing, you could have it save the audio out as AIFF, and then use that in your movie, and compress to a standard codec to reduce the file size.iMac G5 1.8 GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.9)
One thing you CAN do is use AC3 audio in Toast, so maybe make a DVD (to get a playable MPEG-2 VOB file) then using MPEG Streamclip export that to a QT format.G5 Dual 2.5 3GB RAM, New iMac 24" 4GB, G4 1.25 2GB, MacBookPro C2D 15 3 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.1), iPod 80GB , EYE TV 250, Parallels and Win XP SP2 Boot Camp
Does anyone know how you can open a demuxed ac3 file in quicktime so it can be added to a movie?
.... as long as I know, you should do this with iMovie that have separated tract for video & audio....867Mhz desktop, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
