    FAQ: Why does audio or video not go to the track where I drop it?

    Todd_Kopriva Level 8

      Premiere Pro CS6, and later


      Some users have trouble dragging a clip into the Timeline. One of three things can happen:

      1. Only the video or audio portion of the clip appears in the Timeline after dragging, or when you try to drag a clip into the Timeline.
        • If that is your issue, see Solution 1.
      2. After importing media into Premiere Pro, only the video portion is imported. No audio is present in the clip when loading it into the Source Monitor.
        • Even though tracks are patched correctly as in Solution 1, audio does not playback and audio waveforms do not appear in the the Timeline. Audio for clips do not play back in the Source Monitor.
        • If that is your issue, See Solution 2.


      Solution 1
      Make sure source video and audio is patched in the Timeline, then drag the clip to the Timeline. In certain cases it is not automatically patched.




      Solution 2

      In Premiere Pro, after updating a project file from one major version to another, audio is not imported:

      • You need to do the following:
        • Delete media cache
        • Rename media folders
        • Relink offline media
        • Reimport clips, if necessary
