This is probably quite basic. I have a C4D Lite project with an audio file placed into a null in the timeline--and in the object manager I added an external compositing tag to the null object.
In After Effects I have extracted the scene data--and the audio track shows up in the timeline--however, it is not actually audio in After Effects--it looks like a graphic layer and no audio plays in After Effects.
How do I get the audio from C4D Lite to come across to After Effects and play there?
Simply import the audio directly into AE. You are making this way too complicated.
