I have several short mpeg clips with ac3 audio 5.1 All I want to do is add a simple fade to black (and audio fade) at the end of each clip and then join the clips intto one mpeg and maintain ac3 5.1 audio throughout. I don't want to any othdr fancy editing transitions, tites etc. Is there any software that will do this without spending 100s or 1000's of pounds? The best I can do is have ac3 2.0 channels (Ulead Video Studio & Media Studio) or fade video but not audio (Womble Video Wizard). Does the dreaded Pinnacle Studio 9.0 re-encode in ac3 5.1 or is there an alternative?
