What is the origin/codec used of these .mov files? Some formats use multiplexed audio which AE is unable to separate from the video information. You can use an external application (like VirtualDub on PC, or Audio Hijack Pro on Mac) to separate the audio and video.
But weird behaviour if the same files are fine in AE7.
I have the same problem. The weard thing it worke before on this mpg clip. I am a newbe and am not sure if I changed anything. Is there some settings I need to do. or is there a way to set it back to default settings.
Thanks..here is what I found..the files were captured using FCP (firewire direct from deck), all regular DV. They are captured with 2 mono audio tracks. IF I put the clip in FCP and then export (using QT conversion) with a stereo audio track, then all is well.
HOWEVER if I place the clip directly in AE the audio disappears when the clip goes to the timeline.
At least I have a way to move forward now, thanks for the input.
AE doesn't show audio tracks in video files as a separate layer, they are a part of the video layer. You can "twirl" open the properties for the video layer in the Timeline to see the tracks under "Audio" or simply hit LL on your keyboard to see the waveforms.
