What am I missing?
Perhaps the presence of mp3 files in PP. Their consistently-proper functioning are apparently just as hit-and-miss there as they are in AE. Use Audition to convert them to wav or aiff.
to be clear here, when you say you've imported a PremierePro file - are you importing a PPro sequence into AE via dynamiclink?
how does the actual audio file playback in AE? you are probably running into a dynamic link issue which is different than directly playing back footage.
is the music compressed - what is the file type?
Yes it's a sequence, sorry I should have been more clear.
It doesn't really play back that well in AE, but I always have playback issues anyway. But the bits that I can play back, the audio is there throughout except for those 10 seconds.
The file type is just mp3, which is linked to the PP sequence and made to be in time to the video footage.
I suspect if I bring the audio into AE directly, it will fix the issue, but I am more concerned with figuring out why it is happening in the first place so I can avoid it in future.
Thanks for your response!
The mp3 files are linked to PP, and play throughout in PP. In AE the music file plays throughout except for 10 seconds in the middle.
I will try converting.
Thanks for your help!
Also, what versions of Premiere and AE are you using? (Exact version numbers, please.)
