Since you have left absolutely no info about your camera / system, we can only guess. Why are you "converting" to compressed formats? What are you using to "convert" this AVI file? Why not "convert" it to a useable format like Uncompressed Quicktime or Animation codec (Best)?
Like I said...just guessing.
As Silversurfer said - please provide some more info. Which camera? Waht AVI CoDec? Which tool do you use to convert? Perhaps you simply forgot to check audio export somewhere. Other than that: Those MPEG-4 derivatives used by digital photo cameras are experimental (to say the least), but they usually come with a dedicated program that can play and convert them correctly. Maybe re-check your software utilities CD that came with the camera...
Well the camera I am using is HP photosmart M447 which has the videos as AVI.
The program I use to convert the file is a program called "super"
and the audio that I selected is MP3 while the video is converted to MPEG.
I imported the file into after effects, and did that Render thing.
I had selected audio because for some reason that box was unchecked.
And the video is now renderd to the desktop, at this point I imported the renderd video file and YAY I have sound!
I have no options, I can watch the video but thats it, I go to create new and when I drag and drop the renderd video into the black box, it just dosent work.
So adobe is giving me 2 choices. 1: I can edit videos that have no sound. or 2:use videos that have sound but not have the ability to do anything to them (which is what windows media player does)
If you are using SUPER© anyways, why not rip the audio to a separate file and merge them together in AE e.g. in a pre-comp? Should be no problem whatsoever. Remember: AE works based on compositions. It doesn't care where the sound is coming from.
