And if that AVCHD footage has AC3 audio instead of LPCM audio, DVDA Studio will re-convert AC3 to LPCM upon authoring to Blu-ray.

What is a little silly is the Movie Studio HD Platinum does encode AC3 and will make Bluray from timeline. So the editing program will encode but the authoring program will not !!! How confusing for consumers.

I just checked my VMS10 under Tools/Burn Disk/Burn Blu-ray Disk.... only PCM stereo audio is available - which is fine for this consumer - the price is right. Isn't PCM audio supposed to be superior to AC-3?

It is indeed superior.
PCM is uncompressed audio while AC-3 is compressed similar to MP3 (approx. 10:1).

Yes as Mike says PCM is superior but takes up a lot more space on the disc. If the source is AVCHD camcorder( with AC3 audio) it has already lost any quality advantage PCM might have had so re-encoding to PCM does not gain any advantage over AC3 of the original. The Platinum version of VMS does encode AC3 Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10 Product Comparisons though it is not clear if this applies to a Bluray from the timeline.

No. In fact the lack of clarity has hacked off some people. You can't tell what audio is supported on the particular target media. In VMS 5.1 audio and AC-3 audio is only supported on DVD. Blu-ray media only supports PCM stereo audio in VMS. Hope that's clear enough.

I used DVDA5 to burn a 10-minute video, 1920 x 1080 30, using a Bluray burner, media is DVD-R. My Panasonic BD35 standalone Bluray player says "Format not supported". On my computer, Arcsoft Total Media Theater 2 couldn't play it either (Format not supported). However, VLC and Nero both were able to play the DVD.

IF you meant 1920x1080 30P then it is not a supported Bluray format. Only 1920x1080 60i, 1280x720 60P and 1920 x1080 24p are supported for NTSC. What encoding did you use?

By extension, 30P at any resolution is not a supported frame rate for discs to be played back on any standalone video player. 30P video must be manually converted to 60i before authoring onto disc.
