Question about 1.0.2 and New Audio Presets

Post by jsb » Wed Feb 15, 2017 3:35 pm

Hello all,
I recently upgraded HB to 1.0.2 (2017012200) - 64 bit and began using the new included preset of "Apple 1080p30 Surround" in place of the older HB version legacy preset of "ATV3". When I look at the HB 1.0.2 online documentation, the newer preset of "Apple 1080p30 Surround" looks to be a direct equivalent of the older "ATV3" preset in that it says it will do AAC and Dolby Digital (AC-3) encoded audio outputs. I have not modified the preset before encoding, and in the audio tab I show both the DD 5.1 (AC-3) pass-thru and the AAC downmix. But my last three different video encodes with the new HB 1.0.2 and new preset "Apple 1080p30 Surround" have all only output AAC 2.0 in the encode consistently, without the DD 5.1 (AC-3) alternate audio track.

I could go and just use the legacy ATV3 preset, but I wanted to find out if there is something missing in my knowledge of this new 1.0.2 "Apple 1080p30 Surround" preset that makes it different than the legacy "ATV3" preset I was using in the previous version of HB.

Thanks in advance.
