    Audio Quality

    I enoy excelent sound quality and stereophonic sound from my Timeline.

    When the project is completed, I export to a QuickTime Movie

    From the QuickTime movie, I burn a DVD.

    The quality of the sound on the DVD is not as sharp as the one coming from the Timeline and the stereo sound is no longer there.  Everything comes from the center channel in my surround sound system.

    Any other DVD that I play in my surround system is excellent. Excellent surround and sharp sound.

    Please let me know what type of sound files I should have when creating the QuickTime Movie and when burning the DVD.  To burn the DVD I use the Avid's DVD burning software.

    Thanks for info
