Thread: Playing audio files in After Effects.

  1. Default Playing audio files in After Effects.

    Hi all.
    I want to make effects according to music drums and beats, but i can't figure out how to import audio files in After Effects to play them. Well, i imported them, but they all are silent. When i push Play button, video is playing, but music not. I've tried to import video who already got audio, but video were still silent. Any ideas?

    AE is not well suited for audio playback. Check out the help files on 'Previews' at Adobe After Effects CS4 * Preview video and audio

    However, the AE effects named "Audio Spectrum" and "Audio waveform" may be very helpful. Their values can be used in Expressions. For example, a bass frerquency could automatically affect a layer's parameters.

    As Tim suggested, you need to use RAM preview to preview audio together with video.

    One feature that will make animating to a beat easier is Convert Audio To Keyframes.
