Have you waited for all clips to finish conforming?
Playback settings..... where is your audio set to playback from.
Do you see a waveform on the timeline?
Additional information forgot to include originally.
I see the audio track in the timeline and when I start playback, I see audio activity on the master meters.
The clips are only 2 minutes long and I have had the project open for about 3 hours so I think enough time has passed.
I have a Soundblaster audio card installed for sound as there is no audio circuitry on my motherboard. I use a stereo speaker setup only.
Going to Edit>Preferences> Audio Hardware: I have Creative ASIO selected.
> Audio Output Mapping: I have Creative ASIO selected.
There are 2 entries below appearing to correctly show a speaker associated with each front left and right channels.
When I play the clip in the Source window, I hear the audio. When I start to play the time line, nothing is heard but there is an audio track there and the audio meters are active showing a signal during playback.
I have just noticed that in the source window, there are 2 small icons, a film strip and a speaker to the right of the Fit dropdown box.
the same 2 icons are not visible in the program sequence window. I do not know if that has any significance though.
Thanks for the quick responses.
The icons have no relevance here.
In your playback settings, is audio set to Desktop Audio, or External Device.
Examining the source window playback settings, I see that realtime Playback has no external device selected in the drop down and Desktop audio is selected with the button. External Device is grayed out.
With these settings, I hear the audio track.
Examining the editing window playback settings, I see something very different.
The menu box is titled Blackmagic playback settings.
The only option entry in the menu box is: a choiceto "Turn off Dropped frame Warning"
I have a Blackmagic Intensity Pro card installed on my PC and used it to capture my video clip on mini-DV tape played from my Sony GV-HD700 videocasette.
Why am I seeing this BM menu reference only on the editing window? Is this the indication of my problem?
I went back to defining another sequence and the menu choice opened with the same path, as my previous first time at this, to a Blackmagic selection. I changed to a HDV 1080i selection for this 2nd sequence. When I dropped the clip into the 2nd sequence, presto, the sound was there.
Now I am wondering what is the blackmagic option for?
What is the difference between the source and editing window parameters?
That is left to when I have more time to dig into it.
When using a Blackmagic Sequence you have to use the audio from the blackmagic breakout box, it can only use this output no matter how you have set up your audio preferences.
On a side note, it's a good idea to always mention third party hardware in the initial question.
