I have After Effects CS5.5 and can't hear any audio within the program (minus the "beep") when something finishes rendering). Anyways I was watching this tutorial on youtube and the creator of the video had audio in his. Several people in the comments mentioned not having audio so apparently this is a common problem. Anything I can do to get the audio on?
ok i feel dumb. It says that you only hear audio in AE during ram previews.
That's right. Here's a screenshot I recently took for a similar post. It's a list of places to check when you're not hearing audio.
a.) Make sure the audio switch is turned on for the layer.
b.) Make sure the clip itself actually has audio and the db setting makes it audible by checking the waveforms.
c.) Make sure the audio switch is turned on in the Ram Preview Panel.
