    Rendering Freezing when composition includes audio

    atominator Level 1

      Ok so i'm making a short "test" movie to try out the lightsaber effect. I render it with lossless without audio and it works fine it renders and is just video.

      When I try to add Audio by checking the audio ouput box the render freezes at frame 1 and when I stop it a window pops up that says that an output module has stopped working it may be missing or corrupted you may need to restart after effects. I restart after effects and the problem persists. I tried exporting the audio seperate by deleting the video layers and rendering as a .wav file. It renders in less than a second and when I listen to the file it is less than a second of nothing. Here is the log of the audio output I can't get one of the audio+video output though. By the way I am using the trial.
