Free to DVD Architect 5.2 owners, DVD Architect Pro 6.0 is now available. To get your free download, please have your 5.2 serial number ready and then visit this page:
2.0 What’s New
- Support for burning stereoscopic 3D video to Blu-ray Disc.
- Interactive tutorials.
- If you save a project from an earlier version of DVD Architect software in DVD Architect 6.0, it will be unusable in earlier versions of the software. Use the Save As dialog to save the project with a new name after editing it in DVD Architect 6.0.
- Some Blu-ray Disc players will not support playback of 192 Kbps PCM audio. For increased compatibility with these players, you can provide a secondary audio track using lower-sample-rate PCM audio or AC-3 audio.
- Attempting to access your DVD or Blu-ray Disc burner (by browsing with Windows Explorer, searching the drive, or starting an application that scans for available drives, for example) while burning your project can cause burning to fail.
- External monitor output is for visualizing colors, menu layout, and safe areas only and is not an indication of playback synchronization of the final burned disc.
- The Macromedia Flash (SWF) reader plug-in does not read files saved as Flash 6.0 or higher. Please save your files in the Flash 5 format.
Flash files that contain Actionscript or motion video will not be interpreted correctly by the Flash reader plug-in.
- Not all DVD players can play all types of recordable DVD media. For example, some players cannot read +RW discs, and some players are unable to read the second layer on dual-layer discs. To confirm media compatibility, please refer to your DVD player’s documentation/specifications.
- 16:9 Full Height Anamorphic (FHA) QuickTime files do not render as anamorphic.
- DVD Architect supports only 2-channel MXF files.
- When using media that was rendered outside of DVD Architect, video buffer underflow errors can occur during project preparation if portions of a video stream exceed the project’s bit rate. You can use the Optimize Disc dialog to force recompression (re-encoding) of the media file, and the project will prepare without error.
- We recommend that you do not adjust the Windows paging file size below the setting recommended in the Windows Virtual Memory dialog. Doing so could cause errors during the render process when working with large files.
- Waveforms for AC-3 files rendered from Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Edition will not draw correctly. The left-channel audio will appear as a flat line and the left channel will not preview. DVDs created from these files will, however, play back correctly.
- Using noncompliant 5.1 surround audio can result in changes in channel levels after burning your project. Please refer to the DVD
