Default Wav Export - NON BWF

Hi, We have this issue that we can't seem to solve, hope someone has an easy fix.
All our WAV exports from our two Mac based Pro Tools 10 suites are then ran through an ac3 encoder. The resulting file has digital noise added to the end of the file. We have figured out that it is because our ac3 encoder does not like the bwf (broadcast wav files) that Pro Tools exports, and our workflow means we can't just change our ac3 encoder.
Please can someone tell me there is an easy way to export wav files from Pro Tools that doesn't contain that extra info, ie, non bwf, as this is becoming a very painful situation, digital noise isn't pretty!

Kind regards.

Why don't you export AIFFs instead?

Good point. If your AC3 encoder doesn't like AAIF download Audacity (free), import then expert as .wav.

Hope this helps.

Aif produces the same result and exporting every single wav export from PT and running it through audacity is not an option as we just do too many to warrant that workflow. Is there no way to just export out a non bwf from PT?

Cheers.

I don't mean to be flippant or dismissive, but since this is 2012 and your ac3 encoder does not appear to ignore the data chunks in the bwf file, I would complain loudly to the maker of the ac3 encoder. Any workflow you adopt at this point is going to require the extra steps necessary to obtain a chunk free file. The best you can expect is a program that can batch convert. Hell, even iTunes can do that for you. Drag your files into iTunes and have it make wav copies.

Hi, you are correct, our ac3 encoder does not ignore the chunks, and I have complained very loudly, many times, to the maker, Sonic, now Rovi, but so far nothing. So what I am after is a definitive yes or no as to weather or not PT can output non bwf wavs?
If it cant then I will HAVE to find another solution, but I need to establish that first.

Cheers.

As far as I know, there is no way to export wavs from PT10 without the "Junk" chunk.
