I previously added both a Highpass and Reverb effect to a WAV clip in Premiere CS3. I've played a clip from within Premiere numerous times and was satisfied with the sound. I've test rendered the clip as a WMV and MOV many times and it sounded the way I wanted it to.
The clip is supposed to sound like it is coming from a speaker phone. Below are the settings.
Today, when rendering the the entire 15 minute movie to MPEG-2 I discovered the only problem with sound is that clip. It sounds distorted. If I were to guess I'd say the problem was from the HIGHPASS effect and not the reverb effect.
Why would a MPEG2 render reveal or create a sound problem that I don't hear from within Premiere and have never heard in any NON-mpeg2 renders?
Maybe there are some other settings(or effects) that will achieve the same effect result but won't be affected negatively by a MPEG-2 render?
This is 1 of 2 weird problems with the MPEG-2 render but the other is non-audio related and I'll save it for another thread.
The effect settings:
Above post, 1st paragraph---2nd sentence,.....I've played "the" clip NOT "a" clip. There is apparently no way for me to edit the original post.
Solution is I re-rendered the WAV file which had the effects added as another WAV file so that it still sounded the same but it did not have effects added to it, the effects were "baked" into the new WAV during the rerender.
But it would be useful to know why that one initial WAV file, out of so many, rendered with some kind of distortion when rendered as a MPEG-2, yet sounded okay in the timeline and rendered as a WMV and MOV without distorting.
It obviously had something to do with the effect but also with MPEG-2.
