I want to combine an HDTV video recording and an AC3 DVD audio track, but the audio track doesn't quite fit with the video. I need to crop off the beginning and end (MGM lion roaring) and add the proper amount of silence to make the track the correct length to fit the video before muxing them together. I've extracted the audio from the DVD and saved it as a .ac3 file. The only program I've gotten to open the AC3 file for editing is Nero Wave Editor (latest v4.3.4.0) and for some reason, it only opens the first 15:30 of the track. I've tried Sound Forge, Audacity, Audition, and Soundbooth and none of these programs will edit AC3 audio. Maybe some of these programs require a plugin to unlock this capability. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't really need to do a lot of editing to the track. I'm not adding anything except for silence, just removing is all. So if it were possible to do this without having to decode and reencode the whole track, that would be best.

if you look for a mpeg2 cutters they usually have the ability to cut the ac3 as well, like for example:

no, i don't remember which exactly has this ability.

edit: maybe you can do something with virtualdub as well and its 'audio direct stream copy' option.
