I am running Adobe CC and for some reason, the default option in my audio output module is 8k, 16bit, Stereo, even though the project is set up for 48k.
This is the first time I've had to keep manually changing the kHz option to 48kHz. Any idea why this would have changed within the past week?
Also, it dosen't matter if I choose 48kHz. Even tho 48kHz is working properly and selected in the render queue, as soon as I REopen that Render Dialogue box, it goes BACK to 8kHz as the selection.
Glitch? Reinstall perhaps? Because my coworkers machines and my laptop are all default at 48kHz as usual.
This is a bug in After Effects CC (12.2). My apologies for this. We're working on a bug fix release.
You can avoid the bug by double-checking the audio sample rate value, and changing it if necessary, as your last action before you click OK in the Output Module Settings dialog.
For more detail please see my response in this other thread:
This problem is addressed by the After Effects CC (12.2.1) bug-fix update, which is now available:
Note the part at the end of that page about a crucial update for the Creative Cloud desktop application, which addresses some severe problems with AME, Premiere Pro, and After Effects.
