Default Re: Loudness - short term max?

It has been a while since I have done DVD work, but here goes.

The most important thing is to measure the DialNorm of the track and set it correctly in the AC-3 encoding process. When playing back, the decoded AC-3 will play back at -31LKFS/LUFS based on how you set the dialnorm. There are other things that happen around this setting as well.

The other thing you could do, which a number of us have done in the past, is just mix to whatever and set the DialNorm to -31 so no level change takes place. Things could get a bit odd with the RF and Line listening modes engaged.
