I'm not sure where to go to find this info so I thought I'd ask you chaps.....

We had a screening of the first 15 mins of "Beware the Eye of Amun-Ra" at the cinema today. We were just testing things in front of an audience of around 50. I looked great on the big screen and was quite well received (only 2 walk outs !).

We did have a problem with sound though. I have mixed for Stereo at the moment. A year or so ago I even played some of good old "Beware the Pie" at the cinema which is mixed in 5.1 but it didn't come out as such.

Now they have digital projectors at cinemas which play DVDs and Bluerays, does anyone have any idea what encoding I would need to use on a Blueray disk to get it to at least play in 5.1 ?

Or anyone have any idea where to point me to start my investigations ?

you mean this type of info?

this is typical blu-ray default I have

*.m2t


MPEG Transport-Stream Files
24 bits, 1920 x 1080, 29.97 fps
Upper Field First
(HDMV-NTSC), 16:9
Video data rate: Variable (Max. 35000 kbps)
Audio data rate: 384 kbps
Dolby Digital Audio, 48 KHz, 2/0(L,R)

I guess in the UK It would be PAL though sorry that is a canadian setting lol :P

That sounds pretty good! (Ahem, please excuse the pun)
I hope that it went well, I'm sure it looks great on a big screen!

Will you be playing it at a local cinema when finished?

Urban - it's more what format do Cinema projectors want. DVD 5.1 didn't work. I guess I'll have to make a test Blue-ray 5.1 mix and see if it works - unless anyone has a definitive answer....

MrDrWho - obviously we'd love to show it in the cinema, but there are some real issues with scheduling (you can't just not show the latest blockbuster one night). That's what we're hoping for but it's a way off yet so we can't make plans yet.

Berty, you can indeed encode a DVD with 5.1 surround, but it's down to your video editor to manage it - either integrated into the movie itself, or as a seperate stream. I know Vegas has all kinds of surround options (which I've never used!) but it looks like it's really just a case of defining positional information for the sound fx travel and location. Damn, something else I've got to research now for my own movies...

Thanks Zig, but I know how to create 5.1 DVDs (in fact, if you're a Beatles fan check out Beatle Berty on YouTuibe) - it's how to get them to play on the cinema equipment I'm not sure of.

I use Vegas Movie Sudio Platinum - which seems to have the best 5.1 authoring that Vegas offer. Not sure Pro has anything different. http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/vegaspro/compare

I think I'll make a test Blueray with a 5.1 track and see if that works.

Trouble is I have only limited access as you can imagine.

Dylly, are you implying that Taylor Swift is actually male?! I mean she'd have to have a man's name really...OMG she does! Taylor Swift is actually a dumb spammer called Kevin! Quick, spread the word on Twitter or something, a new internet fact has been manufactured! Big Grin
