Hello.

Is there an easy way to simply convert my short 2.0 intro into 5.1 AC3?

All I want to do is join this with a true 5.1 ac3 of the same format (bitrate, sampling frequency, etc)

:devil:

Encode as 5.1 using one of the tools posted at the guides on Stereo to 5.1, if you only want the two channels on the intro; make sure you create the additional "dummy" channels with digital silence matching the time of the intro in an audio editor. To join the AC-3 files use the following command:

copy /b Stereo_Intro.ac3+Surround.ac3 Joined_Stream.ac3/b

Run it on DelayCut to analyze the joined stream for any errors.

In any case tebasuna51 can definitely help you on the tools help, or since the intro is short, simply send a pm!

Foobar2000 or BeHappy can do the job, but maybe aren't easy ways for you.
