Compression Master 3.2.2 won't compress DV/NTSC QuickTime

Currently with Compression Master 3.2.2 the software doesn't like the audio in the DV-NTSC QuickTime video files and won't compress those types of videos. So if you have a QuickTime DV-NTSC video file with DV audio it will give you errors during encoding. This happens when encoding to various formats using Compression Master 3.2.2. What you need to do is replace the DV audio with AIFF audio. The good news is that customers can look to see a fix in the next update of the Compression Master software but for right now here's a work around.

Step1:
* Open your file within QuickTime Pro
* Export the audio using "Sound to AIFF" (as shown above)
* Open the audio file in QuickTime
* Set in point at the beginning and the out point at the end of the file
* Then Copy the sound

Step 2:
* Open your original movie (or a copy) file in QuickTime
* Show "Movie Properties" (Cmd+J)
* Within "Movie Properties" click "Sound track" and then delete
* Paste the AIFF sound that you copied into memory in step 1 by using "Add
to selection & Scale" found in the "Edit" menu within Quicktime
* Save the movie as self contained

Your files are now ready for encoding in Compression Master 3.2.2.

Note: A special thanks to the great technical support staff at Popwire for providing this solution.
