Im a first time AE user, medium term Logic user.
Im creating a short 7 second promo for the start of a film.
I have my audio bounced down to AIFF with nice panning etc, import the AIFF into AE. I then export to Quicktime ProRes 422.
When I play the rendered movie, it seems to have stripped it of the panning settings and some other subtle things I added in Logic.
Anyone have any idea what this is happening, I tried rendering to a different format and it didnt fix it either. Im not compressing the audio in my render, it stays as AIFF, so I dont get it.
You need to actually mix the audio down in Logic. All the processing probably happens live and is only stored as metadata, which naturally other programs can't interpret. and naturally, AE only does simply 2 channel/ stereo stuff, so any fancies like 5.1 will be meaningless.
Thanks for your reply Mylenium!
By bouncing the audio down in logic, I think we mean the same thing, mixing it all down and exporting it to an .aiff file.
When I open the exported .aif file in Quicktime, I can still hear all the panning automation.
I import that exact file into AE, and its not until I render it out from AE that I loose the panning.
What you say about AE only being 2 channel makes sense, but I would have thought a basic pan from left to right speaker would still come through in 2 channel stereo?
Forgive my lack of understanding.
