I am having a problem with audio in after effects cc. I have added an mp3 audio file (narration) which works and sounds fine, however as i add another track (the music) and press ram preview an audio errors occurs on the new track.
I have tried changing between wav and mp3 formats however i am still getting the same problems.
1. The audio jumps
2. The audio seems scrambled, parts of the track play when they shouldn't (for instance when the introduction should be playing the 1st verse plays instead)
I am using - 64bit windows home premium,
What is causing this and how do i fix it?
You have an issue with your audio hardware and AE is unable to get it to play and mix multiple audio streams in realtime. Update the driver, configure it properly. Otherwise apply a dummy audio effect to the layers to enforce rendering to memory instead of realtime playback.
Try this: convert that mp3 file into either a wav or aiff file. Use it instead of the mp3 in the comp. See what happens.
