I have finished the audio mixing on a 15 track project in Audition CC. It is very heavy so I had to export all the tracks separately to import them back into the Premiere Pro CS6 movie project. That way I could also do further adjustments in individual tracks later on directly on Premiere, if needed (since mixing isn´t something we´re ever done with).
I´ve exported them all in wav 9600 Hz 32 bit (Audition doesn´t say whether it´s floating point or not) and also wav 9600 Hz 24 bit. The originals on all the tracks were eitther wav 9600 Hz 24 bit, or wav 9600 Hz 32 bit (converted from 24 bit to aplly declipping and normalization), except 2 tracks with music that had mp3, wav and m4a.
When importing the exported Audition files back into Premiere all of the 15 tracks, including the ones that didn´t have mp3 and m4a in it, give me the message "The file cannot be opened because of a header error".
1. What could be wrong?
2. In case there isn´t a solution, what would be the best lossless formats to try and do the exports for importing into Premiere?
Thanks a lot.
Audition default file system is 32 bit floating point wav files at various sample rates. Are all the audio files you export from Premiere into Audition actually 96K 32 bit? Since Premiere is a video editing programme all audio should be at 48k. Not sure if it can handle 32 bit floating point but 24 bit integer should be OK. May be it is a sample rate/bit depth discrepancy that is causing this problem so try export from Audition as 48K 24 bit and see if Premiere is happy with that. Anything higher than that shouldn't be necessary for audio for video files.
Premiere actually does work with 32 bit floating point and 96k. All my original sound was 96k 24 bit but then I added some more with different rates and formats, including 32 bit, before exporting for Audition. So it doesn´t make much sense that if Premiere works with all of those, it wouldn´t be able to import files exported from auditon as 96k 32 bit (and those were actually exported originally from Premiere).
Exporting them as 48k from Audition has worked, though, either with 32 or 24 bit.
