    Can you see the audio track beneath the video track, and is it turned on?

    If not, where did you download the beta from?

    the audio thats already with the video.

    Hal, the file I loaded to test for the problem, was a 1080P H264 .mov from my Canon 1DMK4 DSLR, and it worked OK.   I wonder if it is a codec problem?   Video comes in soooooo many different flavours!   Can you say exactly what the footage was taken with so, hopefully, someone might have identical footage to test?

    Hello!

    Is the audio encoding in Dolby? One would need a license for that, and it would then required Premiere Pro to be installed, as it is the only soft with the license: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4284091#4284091

    The 5D footage must be near enough identical to what I used.  Looking at your first post again, I see you are using the beta, and I am testing with the full release...

     

    You've tried raw footage direct from the camera, as opposed to rendered by Vegas? Is it just the camera audo you are missing? Have you tried adding another track and importing audio to it?  It sounds like you have from the list of file types you list. Have you tried rendering from CS6 to see if that restores the sound, and yes I can see how that would make the feature useless. :-(

     

    I'm sorry if these are all obvious steps that you have already tried, but I can't think what my be going on unless there is an installation problem.. 

     

    Have you got a very short clip you could make available for download so some one else can test?

    Hi Hal,

     

    Do you mean having the two speaker icons enabled has fixed it?

    Because i've already tried that and it does'nt fix it for me.

    Update: I just tried another video with aac audio codec and it played the audio.

    Like "PECourtejoie" said in post 7 it's a dolby digital problem i've got.

    All the other video files i tried out had audio codec ac3 aka dolby digital,so it looks

    like unless i've got adobe premiere pro cs6 i won't be able to hear the audio through

    cs6 photoshop.

    But if i had adobe premiere pro cs6 i would'nt be using cs6 photoshop to do the video

    editing.

    Tommy, the idea of Video editing is Ps is to allow users of DSLRs that shot video to be able to edit theirs. The issue with the Dolby encoding is that there would be a cost for each license of Photoshop sold, and most Ps users don't do video editing... What camera are you using? I'm not sure if Premiere Elements could help you. Try to download its trial version.

    No the d7000 does'nt output in DD it's lpcm and it sounds dreadful.

    I never use it and instead use the zoom h1 recorder.

    Slight confusion i was'nt trying out d7000 movie clips but

    was using clips from my Panasonic sd90 in cs6 and the audio is DD with that.

    Yes, then, I understand. That camera is not what the photoshop team targets when it comes to videoediting. Do try premiere elements, then...

    I have this problem quite often when editing very long clips... 60 mins+ ... What normally solves the problem for me is loading all of the files into photoshop. Saveing as a .PSD file. Do a complete resart and apon reboot jump straight into PS and edit to your hearts content. I believe that it has something to do with photoshop and other adobe programs not purging themselves from RAM corectly when closed. I have 16GB of RAM so im not sure about that diagnosis but hey, I can do a reboot open Audition. Close Audition imeidatly. Open PS CS6 and BOOM! no audio.
