If you have Multiplexing off in your export settings, you will need the separate audio file to hear anything.
As Harm points out, there are really a couple of things to check. First, one needs to select both Export Audio and Export Video, and then tell AME how the file should be Multiplexed (combined, if required). Step one, without the correct setting in the Multiplexing tab will yield two files, one Audio and one Video.
For a combined file, one will want to select Multiplexing set to anything but "None."
hey. i didnt eve know about the multiplexing...
well after figuring out this multiplexing i tried multipal settings and renderings and i still get no sound from my video files...
is their any screenshots or a step by step thing i can follow through about this?
all i want is a mpeg or mpeg4 video in 720p with sound.....
again.. thank you
your not using the trial are you ?
no.. thats the thing.
OK, we have gotten the "easy things" out of the way, and sorry that it not as simple as choosing the correct Multiplexer setting.
Let's recap a bit:
You have Audio fine in your Timeline. What is your source material, MOV/MP4? What are the Audio specs. for those files?
You are Exporting to MOV/MP4 from the Timeline, through AME, and this is where you do not get Audio.
Is that correct? What player are you using to test your Exported muxed file? Could this be an issue in the player of choice - a setting perhaps? Do other A/V files with the same specs. play fine in it?
Not sure which players are available for the Mac, but VLC Player and MediaPlayer Classic HC are both very good, but could be PC-only. Can you try another player?
Can you start a New Sequence that matches your Export file, Import that output file, and play it in the Timeline?
