Alright, so I filmed a video with my cousin and got a couple of clips. I imported them onto my computer and checked them out
First of all, they're AVI files. And the sound is with the video, I chose not to record separate voices etc etc.
So, seeing that everything is alright, sound is at it's place, no bugs no whatever, I import the AVI files into AE CS6.
Put in my first clip, do a few cuts here and there, and then I place in my second clip.
I start the RAM preview and everything looks good until it gets to the second clip. After maybe 5 seconds in the second clip it just cuts off until the end of that clip.
So, I decide to restart after effects and only put in my clip #2. And, same thing happens. So then I thought it was a problem with RAM preview, so I then render the clip out into a folder. I open it and to my suprise, instead of the sound stopping a few seconds in, there's maybe 2 seconds of normal sound, then the sound stops and restarts right away.
BUT, when it restarts it's not the right sound! It plays sound that's supposed to play 4-5 seconds later. So I'm left with a missing piece of sound and an audio that doesn't fit the clip.
That happens with half of my clips, the other ones play just fine.
So can anyone help me? I'm using After effects CS6 on a Windows 7 64bit OS.
First of all, there are dozens and dozens of types of AVI files. Before we can offer any concrete suggestions we need to know little more. What camera did you use? It will also be helpful to know a little about your composition settings.
...in which case, w'll need to know about the clip's codec. You can find it by highlighting the clip in the project window, then looking at the information you'll see at the very top.
It may also be the the clip was corrupted somehow, too. Those things happen, sad to say.
I tried checking out the codec in windows media player, both audio and video codecs have "-" meaning there's none or it doesn't detect it..
I'm not that much of an expert but heres what it says on the top part of the project window..
"Millions of colors / 1bmd / 11,024kHz , 8bit, mono"
It would be a weird type of "corruption" if it only broke when playing and rendering in AE ._. the clip works fine on anything else D:
I would then use a different application to convert the WMV to AVI. If Adobe Media Encoder can read it, yuou can do the conversion there.
Incidentally, that's a really low audio sample rate. That original file must look and sound pretty bad.
Yeah the quality isn't great, but I'm doing with what I got. My main camera broke lately so I'm stuck with this piece of crap.
And what do you mean WMV to avi? It says the clips are already in AVI ._.
