Hopefully it's something simple like the audio track is set to mute?
Hello Curt: Thank you for your help. It will play if I double click on a video file in the project panel, but again no audio. I have checked and recheck every setting I can find and all the audio portions are on. In a new project my settings are DHV 1080i30 (60). I have a canon HV20 high def camcorder.
Hello FS: I wish it were that simple. Or at least I can't locate any buttons that need to be pushed to set the audio in with the video. It is not muted in the audio track to be specific. Thank you for your help. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Jim
Does other Audio play in CS3? When you Edit the Clip's Audio in Soundbooth and replace the original Audio (basically what that "pale green" is telling you), does this new file play in CS3?
I just want to rule out that it is not an Audio, or Audio Hardware setting first, and that it IS a problem with the Captured Video's Audio. BTW you ARE Capturing from your camera via FireWire and using CS3 to Capture, right? Does your original Captured Asset show a Waveform Display for the Audio?
1. Does other Audio play in CS3? This is my first time to try to use it so I can not answer that question for sure.
2. When you Edit the Clip's Audio in Soundbooth and replace the original
Audio (basically what that "pale green" is telling you), does this new
file play in CS3? No
3. ...you ARE Capturing from your camera via FireWire and using CS3 to Capture, right? Yes
4. Does your original Captured Asset show a Waveform Display for the Audio? Yes; it is the correct color and the mixer meters even show there is audio.
Is your cam connected? If so; try disconnectig it.
Is this by chance a trial ver of Pr CS3? or full retail copy...
Yes it was connected. I unplugged at the fire-wire on the computer end and still no audio. Man that would have been great if it had been that easy. I can't help but think I am missing something so simple. I have gone over all the buttons I can find. Thanks Jim
In Edit>Preferences, there are two important tabs: Audio and Audio Hardware. The second has several buttons, like ASIO Settings, that bring up other dialog screens. You will see drop-down menus and radio buttons. Can you do screen-caps of all of these screens for both Audio and Audio Hardware, plus the various additional dialog screens. It seems likely that you have a setting off.
PS - use the little "camera" icon on the bottom row, middle, of the Toolbar in the forum editing screen:
I must confess. I was at my wits ends. I called the Geek Squad. Here is what
"Reconfigured the audio output settings in Premiere
- Edit>Preferences>Audio>Audio Hardware>ASIO Settings>"
They did a couple of other things for me, so I was well pleased, thanks
You were right WS. The thing is there was some deciphering he had to do in
the ASIO settings and with my limited computer skills I am glad I called.
I had to get CS3 up and running. I am on a timeline myself to get the
Thanks for all your help. Thank all you guys and 'girls'.
P.S. I'm sure you will hear from me again. I'll stay posted to the sight and
learn my reading. I doubt I will be able to be much help.
Glad that you got it sorted. Deadlines can loom large!
ASIO settings can be the "root of all (or much) evil." It's not THAT hard to diagnose, but then you did save time, as the replies in the forum are seldom RT (Real Time).
For future reference, should you encounter ASIO issues that CANNOT be easily handled, there is a little driver, ASIO4ALL, that corrects many ASIO issues. It's free and has saved many people in the Audition forum much grief. You just need to install it, and then direct everything in all of your programs, that have Audio, to it. In your case now, no need, 'cause you got it sorted.
I see there is a way to give points for help. I did not see how to do that.
When I get in figured out I would like to show my appreciation in some way.
Thanks again Jim
