i am using after effects for the first time and i have added a music file, it wont allow me to actually hear what is in the programme. my question is: does it need to be a quicktime format or can i use MP3 or MPEG, M4a etc. ?
You seriously need to read the help and watch some tutorials instead of just muddling through.
As someone just starting out in AE, I highly suggest that you start here. If you just dive in, you will land in a deep ocean of frustration.
