Using Soundtrack Pro with DVD Studio Pro

Soundtrack Pro and DVD Studio Pro offer two possible workflows for editing DVD Studio Pro audio clips.

To make a change to a Soundtrack Pro audio file project from a DVD Studio Pro project
  1. Import a Soundtrack Pro audio file project into DVD Studio Pro.

    Note: If you import a Soundtrack Pro audio file project that includes more than two channels, DVD Studio Pro only uses the first two channels.

  2. Do one of the following to open the audio file project in Soundtrack Pro:

    • Select the file in the Assets tab, then choose File > Asset > Open In Editor.

    • Control-click the file in the Assets tab, then choose Open In Editor from the shortcut menu.

    Soundtrack Pro opens with this audio file project in its File Editor.

  3. Make the needed changes to the audio file project in Soundtrack Pro and save the project.

  4. Switch back to DVD Studio Pro.

The Asset Refresh dialog appears, letting you know that the audio file project has changed. Play the file to hear the changes in DVD Studio Pro. You can click Show Log in the dialog to see a list of elements that use this file.

To edit an audio clip destructively in the File Editor
  1. In DVD Studio Pro, Control-click the clip, then choose Open With from the shortcut menu.

  2. In the dialog that appears, select Soundtrack Pro and click Choose.

    Soundtrack Pro opens and the clip appears in the File Editor.

  3. Edit the clip in the File Editor.

    You can edit the audio file project in the File Editor using the commands and functions described in Working in the File Editor. You can apply actions or analyze the file and fix analyzed problems.

  4. When you are finished editing the clip, do one of the following:

    • Choose File > Save.

    • Choose File > Save As.

      Make sure the name, location, and file type in the Save As dialog are the same as for the clip’s source file.

  5. Click Save.

Note: You can also save the clip in Soundtrack Pro as an audio file project, which lets you use the workflow described in Working in the File Editor.
