This is simple. Drop an MP3 directly from explorer to the timeline = no audio waveform and no audio at all! The only way to get it is to drag the file to the project panel. And sometimes when i zoom in / zoom out to the timeline waveforms tend to dissapear. The was no such behavior in CS6
Can someone confirm the same bug with audio files or is it just my configuration? It could have been a nice workflow for video: you drag & drop files to your timeline from windows explorer just to review them. Then if you decide you like them then drag'em to the project panel and only then they start to conform audio. But in case of "just audio" files like WAV or MP3 i think it is totally a bug.
Same here, no waveform, no audio.
But...doing it that way does not place the clip in the bin, so this is not surprising behavior. I'd say the odd thing is that you can drop it right into the timeline. Standard practice is to Import and organize your assets before using them. Stick with that and you should be good. Use a media player for review before import. I really like AIMP.
Thank you, now i know it's not related to my system configuration. I'm just saying that CS6 behaved differently. And everyone has it's own standard practices and workflows So it was natural for me to imoprt things that way. Adobe could make an option in preferences to specify behaviour in drag & drop situation like this. But now i think it's more likely a bug.
Same here too. The WAV/MP3 file placement into the timeline should either be allowed from PPro with full functionality, i.e. placing the files automatically in the bin and showing full functionality, e.g. audio playing, waveform, etc. or this action shouldn't be allowed, e.g. message "pls import the asset first". The current implementation is poor aka a bug ..
Yea, i kinda hate these new versions mainly because of bugs. You usually can't resist to try new features, but all you do is deal with bugs. I recall a horrible CS4 initial release. It was near to unusable. But efter a half year of bugfixes it was ok. I think Adobe beta testers don't do a good job in general. Maybe Adobe itself isn't so used to really USE it's own product
