    no audio when exporting to tape

    friar_tuck66

      I am attempting to export a SD 4:3 sequence to DVcam tape using a Sony DSR-40 via firewire. After changing the MPE to software only, I'm getting a video signal to tape, but no audio. Sequence and deck are both set to 48k...seems like i must be missing something. Any thoughts?

          Audio is normally set to play back on the computer.  Change that in the Playback Settings so it goes out over FireWire.

            I'm not sure where to do that. I had looked at audio output mapping under

            preferences and changed to "map output for: Audio Out" but as soon as i close

            the preferences tab and open it back up, it reverts to the default "Premier Pro

            WDM Sound"...and still plays back on speakers but not on tape deck. What am I

            missing?

              On the program monitor, just below the monitor is an icon (with three circles, just above the camera icon), click on it and then click on "Player settings.." at the bottom. It is there that you choose which audio to use.

                  I have the same problem.

                  I can export the video to my sony HDV DVCAM recorder but no audio.

                  I can import video and audio but no audio on export or directly from the time line.

                  I have set the playback to External Device Audio.

                  When I play the timeline I have audio on my speakers and I have the meter within premiere showing audio.

                  I use a Windows 7 64 bit 12 gigs of memory computer with CS5.

                  I have a matrox RTx2 but for this I am using a premiere NTSC DV sequence.

                  The audio driver is RealTek High Definition Audio

                  Map Output for: Premiere Pro WDM Sound

                  Audio Hardwear>Default Device: Premiere Pro WDM Sound

                   

                  Any Ideas?

                   

                  Thanks

                    The playback settings need to be set to "external device audio"...you can get to

                    those settings by going to sequence/settings, then click the playback settings

                    button to open the playback settings dialogue box.   (or as cvid01 mentioned, on

                    the program monitor, just below the monitor is an icon with three  circles just

                    above the camera icon that you can click to open a dialogue box with a "Player

                    settings" option at the bottom.) just under where it says aspect file

                    conversion, there is the option to select desktop audio or external device

                    audio...select external device.

                     

                    After making this change, I was able to export both audio and video to tape, but

                    not without difficulty. It appears to me that export to tape is more of an

                    afterthought with this software. I have yet to be able to make it export to a

                    specific time code...it always slips 10-20 frames...sometimes it just stops

                    before completing the export. Thank goodness we are moving to file based show

                    delivery, since i see no way to deliver a properly formatted broadcast master

                    using this software.

                      In my post I have pointed out that I already have the playback to External Device Audio.

                      That was the first thing I checked.

                       

                      Anyone have any other ideas?

                      Thanks
