Please help, I'm losing my mind with this.
I have a multi-track sequence that I rendered out to H.264 (Vimeo 720p settings). It uploaded to Vimeo just fine, audio and video synced perfectly, all was good.
My client reviewed the footage, wants a few minor tweaks, but when I went back into PP CS6, the audio on track #1 is no longer recognized. It's showing on the track but there is nothing there, no audio bars, nada.
Basic format: I have a highlight video of an athlete playing hockey. I have cut in some interviews of his coach giving testimonials as well as the athlete discussing his sport. Underneathe is a track of the athlete in his venue (fans cheering, game sounds etc.) and below that is an instrumental soundtrack. I also have some basic still titles in there as well.
Essentially: video track 1: original footage from camcorder, video 2: titles. Audio 1: coach and athlete comments, copied audio only from different interview footage track 2: background sport sounds from original tracks, matches up to the footage of the athlete playing his sport, plays fine. Audio track 3: instrumental track imported from iTunes, plays fine.
Quesion: the audio that is NOT playing was taken from separate footage I shot with my camcorder. I unlinked the audio and video from each other, selected the audio only, copied it, and then pasted it into the track 1 timeline where I wanted it. Is this an issue?
This process worked fine and rendered out ok originally but now that audio is not recognized. Is there something I need to do to link them together?
Note: most up to date CS6 verion of PP being used.
copied it, and then pasted it into the track 1 timeline where I wanted it. Is this an issue?
Possibly. There is a glitch when copying/pasting. Give a read through here and see if it helps.
Jim, thank you for directing me to the right place.
After much reading and experimenting there was no real solution. I had to import the footage and then re-edit the whole audio timeline, which was a gigantic pain in the butt.
For a problem that has been identified for such a long time, and one that should be easy to fix, IMO, this is disgraceful Adobe. Please fix it now.
