Adobe After Effects Question

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by Samuel Sundaram, Jan 23, 2004.

  1. I'm using Adobe After Effects and have a quick question - how do you render
    the video without losing audio? I can't seem to figure it out.. I could
    technically render the video and hop back to Avid or Premiere to drop the
    audio back on the timeline but the problem is that I'm using A.E. (and the
    magic bullet plugin-demo version) to render my dv footage as 24P- premiere
    has problems accepting the footage for some reason (and I don't own avid at
    home - I could test it at school but I prefer to edit at home). Any
    suggestions? Thanks!

    24P is not a valid "video" format, so you would have to take that into
    account
    when setting up AE and Premiere. As for the audio, in the Render Queue
    there is an output setting where you select your format details. At the
    bottom is
    where you setup for audio output. It is not available for all formats. Most
    often
    the audio in AE is not used except as a scratch track. The real audio is
    usually
    put into the timeline from the original source. AE has good audio
    capabilities,
    but the interface is not at all nice, so we usually don't bother with it.
    There are
    better ways to work on the audio.

    I agree with the last answer. AE is not ment to handle audio at a professional
    level. It is just for reference.

    Make the movie and dump it on a timeline and then add the audio. See if you
    can download some trial version of software like Premier. I would think at the
    very least you would be able to dump a video and audio together and the
    interface with AE would be seamless.
