I used to have this same problem a few years ago with Nuendo 3 or 4 after an update. The wav export would not load into my Spruce Maestro turnkey system. As I do a lot of concert DVD’s with PCM stereo track, this is crucial. I remember that the previous case was resolved by unchecking “Insert Broadcast Wave Chunk”. This time it’s apparently not (only) that. I tried to check and uncheck literally all permutations offered for export and the problem maintains. And this is not the only application having this problem.
Luckily, I can import AIF export, but I’d really like to get to the bottom of this.
This is fascinating, as I know for certain Apple’s DVDSP cannot work with 24-bit PCM files either - it will import them but they do not work properly (lockups etc) and Maestro is what DVDSP used to be until Apple ruined it.
I have no trouble at all with 5.5.5 WAV files in either Scenarist SD or DVD-Lab Pro or MEI DVD-A Creator, so it has to be something in the application - we do this sort of thing all the time too, and always, always use combinations of PCM & DTS - Dolby Digital has no place at all on music titles to my mind.
Would it be okay to send me a snippet of a file Maestro will not handle to recheck in Scenarist, DLP or MEI tools?
FWIW, using B-WAV is a very bad idea for DVD…or so I was taught.
Thanks, guys. Sorry for the delay. I totally forgot about this issue simply because AIF format would import and that was enough to get the jobs done. However, the problem with wav persists. I’ll switch to Nuendo 6 this month, so we’ll see if it has the same problem.
I tried various wav files exporeted from Nunen do 5.5.5. None of them imports into Spruce. None. If you still want me to upload a chunk, let me know where. You have my e-mail from the DVDTully List.
