Default Can't enable dither when DDP format is selected

The dither text is greyed out and you cannot check the boxes:



In this situation is there automatic TPDF dither applied or is it just truncating? Either way, I would consider this a bug.

Also, related, the help text states
Quote:
The CD Audio format is 44100Hz, 16-bit, stereo. Please set this format, otherwise the export will be cancelled.
This is clearly not the case as whatever I set as the samplerate, the DDP still completes (and I assume automatically resamples to 44.1k using the selected quality?).

And, finally, when opening the help text, on REAPER (Linux, at least) the text is always highlighted/selected and is at the end of the text (the languages section):

Thanks so much! While we're at it, is it possible to remove the DDP and bin/cue from the batch converter format options? The entries don't seem to make any sense there.

Hi Beth,
but I am not sure that those entries don't make any sense in BC though.
You may end up with simple, most basic conversion (aka no tracks definition, no CD-text added) of course, but still you should get valid "technical format" for these, so you can burn them to physical CD media to be played by hardware players.

Am I right Justin?

I could understand the limited usefulness of both DDP and BIN/CUE if you could somehow batch convert a whole number of audio files into a single DDP or BIN/CUE instance but AFAIK you can't do that (feature request?). But further, in the case of DDP, why would you? It's a format almost exclusively for CD plants to ensure that your carefully laid-out disc (complete with INDEX0 and INDEX1 markers, metadata and the like) is duplicated/replicated perfectly. Having said that, I'm all for a quick combined BIN/CUE (why not also whatever-samplerate WAV/CUE option?) batch conversion for a client to listen back to a series of individually mixed/mastered songs. If you are already at the album sequencing stage, you'd just rattle off a quick BIN/CUE from the render dialog, no?
