Mmmm after further investigation I can see the waveforms when my timeline is zoomed in to a certain extent but they disappear at a certain point when zooming out on the timeline...
Maybe the audio is just really low?
Are these files complete? Or are they partially captured files coming from something like a Harmonic Spectrum?
The reason I ask: we added support for partially growing MXF support to CS6, so if we detect that a file doesn't have a footer partition, we assume that it's growing and don't auto-generate the audio peak data until the file is detected as complete. That would explain the missing waveforms (and, as you noted, if you zoom in enough, we will display partial waveforms around the cached audio data near the playhead, but you won't see it for the file's entirety when zoomed out until the peak file is generated).
Hi Wil, Thanks for the response.
The files are complete and have been residing on my hard drive overnight. I deleted them and used Prelude to ingest them once more, but to no avail. Still the same.
The whole waveform is viewable on every clip when zoomed in and scrolling through the timeline, but as soon as you zoom out to a certain degree they disappear. I have a GTX285 card if that helps.
Now the problem is no audio at all with the MXF files. It seems very flakey. I have an AJA Kona LHi card with the 10.1 utilities but all other audio is fine so logic would dictate that it can't be the card...
I'm very frustrated.
Any other ideas?
1) In Preferences/Audio settings, make sure "Automatic Peak File Generation" is checked
2) In Preferences/Media settings, make sure "Write XMP ID to Files on Import" is checked
3) Close Premiere CS6
4) Open your media folder
5) Delete all XMP files
6) Reopen Premiere, XMP files should be recreated and your waveform updated. It may take a bit of time if you have many clips.
Check to see if your audio source function in the sequence monitor has shut off, and if so turn it back on.
While importing .mxf files from the Media Browser, for some reason the program shuts off the audio source after I import my first file, which prevents me from importing audio (until I turn the A1 function on).
