Sound not working properly

Apr 14, 2012 9:04 PM

So first of all, I'm completely new to this forum. I made this account to ask this question but I imagine I'll probably use this account for questions in the future as well. I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong section or if I'm doing something else wrong.


Anyways, I'm getting this issue with the clips I import into Adobe Premiere. When I play, rendered or not, I get this weird buzzing/ringing sound that changes in pitch at times. Visuals are fine. I really don't understand why this is happening because I can play the clips perfectly fine outside of the program and this has never happened to me in the past. Any way to find out what has changed and how to fix it?


If it helps,

-I'm using Bandicam to record in AVI format


-Audio is people talking and game sounds

    Read Bill Hunt on a file type as WRAPPER

    What is a CODEC... a Primer

    What CODEC is INSIDE that file?


    Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing


    For PC or

    For Mac

    . n-render-bars.html


    If you have a red line over the timeline after importing a video and before adding any effects... your project is wrong for your video... read above about codecs


    Once you know exactly what it is you are editing, report back with that information... and your project setting, and if there is a red line above the video in the timeline, which indicates a mismatch between video and project


    More information needed for someone to help... click these links and provided the requested information




    For CS5 and later, the easy way to insure that your video and your project match

    Bandicam is not the ideal application to create videos for editing with PR. You may be better off with either of these options:


    1. Use Bandicam and try to edit with a consumer application like WMM, Magix or Power Director.

    2. Convert Bandicam material to something editable. Use Google to find a converter.

    3. Forget about Bandicam and use another package that delivers an editable format.


    Of the three formats Bandicam can output, MPEG1, Xvid and MJPEG only the last one may, just may be workable if you get the Morgan or MainConcept MJPEG codec. MPEG1 is too low a quality and Xvid will not edit because it is not intended to be edited.


    AVI is completely irrelevant here, it is about the codec used within that wrapper. AVI is like a container that can hold different stuff, new TV's or other electronics, old metal waste or canned food, etc. A pro application like PR just hates metal waste and canned food. It requires high quality contents and Bandicam does not deliver that.


    General warning: Do not install codec packs, FRAPS or similar to try to solve this issue. You will break more than you will correct and you have fabulous chances to need to reformat your C: drive and need to reinstall Windows and all applications if you do not heed these warnings.

    If I understand Bandicam, perhaps Camtasia would be a better choice. This ARTICLE goes into some detail on producing video screen-cap files from it, and editing in PrPro. Jeff Bellune contributed to much of that, and uses Camtasia to create many/most of his tutorials.


    Good luck,
