Please help, I have tried for 2 weeks to find how to author a blue ray disc of my movie in Premier Pro.
I checked the H.264 Blu-ray output and there is no Multiplexing. However, there is for MPEG2-DVD.
There is mulitplexing for dvd as you can make a dvd with pcm audio.
You cannot make a bd disk with pcm audio it has to have ac3 which is dolby: hence the multiplexing missing on bd disks.
That issue only affects output to be authored in a program that requires the audio and video muxed together. It can also be seen as the latest step in Adobe's depreciation of DVD and Blu-ray export support. The first step affected the DVD export preset as far back as the original 2013 release of Premiere Pro CC, when Dolby Digital audio exports when using the DVD preset was "permanently" fixed at a low 128 kbps. The next MAJOR (not point) release of Premiere Pro CC may completely eliminate the DVD and Blu-ray export presets, which will force the user to export in a format whose entire content - both video and audio - will end up getting re-encoded by the authoring program.
And as far as I know, Adobe Premiere is incapable of muxing PCM audio with the video in its Blu-ray presets.
Actually, (L)PCM is BD compliant (Correction: It is Blu-ray compliant, as far as replicated/pressed pre-recorded Blu-ray discs are concerned, up to 8 channels at 48kHz or up to 6 channels at 96 or 192 KHz. That may not be applicable to burned BD-R media.)
Did not know that.
I just made an interesting test with Encore.
Project settings set to ntsc/pcm: timeline m4v and wav 25 fps.
It made an iso. m2ts file is pcm and 25 fps.
Cannot do this in a pal project.
Ann, in Encore, go to File > Project Settings and click on Default Transcode Settings and change the Audio Encoding Scheme from Dolby Digital to PCM. It works here with PAL projects.
I did that but no show.
To make it work everytime, make sure to set this in the New Project dialog when creating a new project since changing it in an existing project may or may not work. In an existing project when the audio once has been transcoded, use the Revert to Original and make sure that Encore deletes the .ac3 file it created to force it to use PCM.
I made a test with a 28 minute timeline, 1080i 25, and the PCM version of the .iso file Encore created became 6 445 056 Kb while the Dolby version became 6 134 208 Kb.
It also works for me. Simple version. New project, set to PAL BD with PCM audio. But it is upper field - 1080i 25 is not listed as BD legal.
In any event, I just added a menu, put a PAL DV clip I had on a timeline, linked and built to BD folder. The transcoded file it created was .wav, and mediainfo showed the m2ts in the stream folder as PCM.
Stan Jones But it is upper field - 1080i 25 is not listed as BD legal.
1080i 25 is upper field first and that´s what i used. HD is per definition upper field when it somes in an interlaced stream.
1080i 25 and 1080i 50 is the very same thing. Some prefer to define it as 1080i 50 and some prefer 1080i 25 though both mean 1080, interlaced, upper field first, 25 frames/second. I prefer the latter since 25 frames/second is easier to explain than 50 half frames/seconds.
Just a "duh" moment....
... In Premiere there is no multiplexer for BD anymore.
I'm not sure I understand. Yes, the H.264 Blu-ray format has only "none" for multiplexor, but it is exporting PCM, same as for a DVD. And Encore will create a stereo a3c file in a BD project, and you can also build with the PCM (if the project is set to PCM audio).
FYI, first time using Power DVD for testing; my old Total media theater does not work correctly in Win10.
Re later post, I'm sure the TMPGenc workflow is the better way to go. 5.1 audio is the thing!
In previous versions you were able to make a bd compliant file (m2t) with ac3 embedded if you were to use another authoring program.
