Selecting "Edit > Edit in Adobe Audition" from within B Video composition (which contains a video file) while in B Frame composition (which contains B Video composition) results in the following errors:
After Effects can't continue: damaged i/o structure.
( 39 :: 113 )
Clicking ok then says
Before quitting, you have one chance to save your project (don't use the same
name as the original).
Which is quite terrifying
Choosing to save or hitting cancel results in the application closing.
What I was trying to do
I'm just trying to send some audio to Audition for editing. I did it once and it brought over my in and out points based on how I cropped it, which was perfect. Doing it a second time on another video however, did not bring over the in and out points but the audio for the entire video file. What am I missing?
Well that explains the bug portion of my post, but in getting around that (doing it properly). I don't think AfterEffects imploding is the best way to inform the user that that's now how it should be done.
That said, doing it properly, I'm not getting the results I'm looking for. I'm not getting the in and out points of my video despite sending the cropped version of the video.
It works as it should - you send the source file which doesn't know anything about your trims. AE works with references, it doesn't physically modify your sources in any way. if you want that, you will have to render the audion properly to a separate file.
Clearly I'm missing something. In both examples, I am sending the video to Audition in the exact same way. I open my composition which contains the video, I click on the video layer and I choose Edit > Send to Adobe Audition.
I'm trying to determine why one gives me in and out points and the other doesnt.
I get an asterisk at the top indicating a change was made when I hit Ctrl + [ while clicked on my video, but sending to Adobe Audition yields the same results, no markers in Audition. Is there some sort of visual indicator that shows my in and out points?
