And a rough tanslation of a mail from a Peter P.,
just to have it all in one thread, as a base for discussions.
Good that you take on this weakspot of every DAW
- Do you export once in the end, or do you do tests in
Both, both should be possible as you know a project is never finished
- Do you work with stereo and/or multi-channel?
To exchange projects with others, it's very important to be able to
export a session to several .wav files of the same length
- What are your targets: CD, DVD, Web?
Mainly CD. For DVD you can render 6 separate tracks, everything
else will be done at authoring.
- File-types: WAV, Flac, Ogg, MP3?
- Bits and sampling rates you need?
The usual: 44.1 and 48 KHz, 16 bit
- Do you or would you like to export to several formats at
once? If yes, which exactly?
No, that's definitively no necessary as you can do that super-fast
with shell-apps like oggenc and flac.
Much more important is exporting several tracks at once.
- Do you know of outstanding solutions in any application?
No, honestly not. That makes even more important to tackle
- What problems do you run into?
Manual muting of single tracks to export them one by one (see above)
Thanks to all who responded. Additional input is still welcome.
Next I'm going to work on a specification.
