Copy Audio Partially working - Bug?

Hello Topaz Community!

I am working on upscaling some old DVD concert videos. I have ripped my source DVDs and converted the VOB files to MKV in handbrake to de-interlace and add chapters and audio tracks (surround and stereo). I have my audio settings set to “Copy.”

Expected behavior: Both Preview and Video Export would copy ALL audio tracks when “Copy” audio setting is used.

Actual behavior:

When I preview output in TVAI 3.0.12 both audio tracks (Surround and Stereo) from my source MKV files remain.

However, when i export with the “Copy” Audio function enabled I only get the first audio track (Surround) within the TVAI output file.

Why doesn’t the export function behave as the preview copying all audio tracks? Am I doing something wrong? I would expect copy would fully copy audio tracks instead of partially. Is this a bug?

Appreciate any guidance here. Thanks in advance!

Strange that in “preview” mode it copies you all the audio tracks of your original MKV, while converting the video leaves you only the first track!

However, I can answer you in part:
because simply the program still needs to be optimized for handling video files with multiple audio tracks present at the same time on the same video file… in fact it is inconceivable to me that the possibility to choose at least the audio track to be converted has not yet been added to the program GUI.

In fact, this is precisely why I created an official request to add this feature:

Thanks for sharing that link. I voted for that feature as I agree it should be available by default. Do you know if that feature has been prioritized?
