I'm brand new to Affter Effects - I've been using PPro for years...I've imported a video file w/ audio - I see the wav. file in the timeline, but I cannot hear the audio. I realize this is exteremely basic stuff, but any help would be apprecited.
This is one of those "gotcha's" that might be easily avoided with a preset preference in CS4.x. Spacebar = RAM PREVIEW
It DOESN'T exist currently, and in order to hear the audio playback with the video, you need to create a RAM preview by either pressing "0" (zero) on the number pad, or pressing the RAM Preview button in the transport panel.
If you want to preview audio only, then use the "." (decimal) on the number pad.
To render with audio, you'll need to check the option in your Output options (at the bottom)
