I am using bluetooth headphones (Jaybird Freedom Sprint) to try and edit audio/video in after effects. However, when I go to Preferences>Audio Output Mapping and choose "Freedom Sprint" and click OK, close the preference window, and it will automatically go back to the default "Built in Output" when I open it back up. It will only play the sound through the Mac Pro tower I am using. Is there a way to get the headphone option output to stay permanently?? Is there a reason why it is not staying selected? Another thing I forgot to mention is that all other sounds work (like iTunes, volume up/down) through the headphones except for the audio RAM preview in After Effects. How can I disable the audio from playing through the tower? Very frustrating!
BTW - the only time headphones actually work is when they are plugged into the tower. These ones obviously can't be plugged in.
Thanks! (Screenshots provided for help)
That's more likely an issue with the connection to the headphones not being persistent, an inherent limitation due to how Bluetooth works. Rather than looking for the solution here, you may want to check whatever configuration tool comes with those thingies and create a fixed pairing on a fixed Bluetooth channel set or enabling some sort of compatibility mode. That no doubt would greatly increase chances of the setting also sticking in AE...
Thanks! I definitely did try that first... (trying to find a solution with the headphones). You can't find any info about them online/their website. Regardless though, After Effects will not allow me to play the audio output through any other device except for the Mac Pro tower - even playing it through the LCD Cinema Display won't work.
Thanks for your reply
