    Audio issue in After Effects

    matb1234

      Hi,

       

      When I import an audio file in my course, some audio is added at the very beginning of the presentation for 1 or 2 secs.

      It seems it's playing the beginning of the audio file then stops then starts again.

      If I delete the audio file, save, close After effects, then open again and insert back the audio file, I still get the same issue.

      It doesn't do it all the time though.

       

      Any idea how to fix this?

       

      Thanknyou,

      Mat

          The most important thing to remember -- never used compressed audio in AE.

          There are many, many forms of compressed audio, and AE doesn't react well to a bunch of them.  So rather than play Audio File Roulette, always convert compressed audio to wav or aiff files.  Compared to the size of video files, uncompressed audio files are teeny-tiny-small.

           

          If you still have audio problems after that, you have other issues going on.  Let us know.

            I'm using .mp3 audio files.I've been using AE for months doing the same process for each course and I never had any problems.The issue started about weeks ago.

            Thank you,Mat

              I'm using .mp3 audio files.

              As Dave said, convert those to wav before importing into AE.

               

              I've been using AE for months

              mp3 files can be like that.

                I think you'll find that the mp3 files you started getting a couple of weeks ago use a slightly different form of compression.

                 

                But it's easy to test -- convert a problem mp3 file to wav or aiff, make a new AE project, import the new audio file, and see if the problem persists.
