Remarks about the FLAC Export Option:
The FLAC export option allows users to encode audio files in the FLAC format, which is a lossless audio compression format known for its high audio quality and small file size. However, in order for the FLAC export option to work, the “flac” Application must be installed on the user’s system. If the “flac” Application is not installed, the FLAC export option will not function properly.
Checking for FLAC Application Existence:
To determine if the “flac” Application is installed on your system, you can use the following method:
Open a terminal window.
Type “flac -v” in the terminal window and press Enter.
If the “flac” Application is installed, the version information for “flac” will be displayed in the terminal window, confirming its existence on your system.
Open a command prompt window.
Type “flac -v” in the command prompt window and press Enter.
If the “flac” Application is installed, the version information for “flac” will be displayed in the command prompt window, confirming its existence on your system.
Note: If the “flac” Application is not installed on your system, you will need to install it in order to use the FLAC export option provided by the 3D Audio Encoder software. You can download and install the “flac” Application from the official FLAC website or through package managers available on your operating system.
