Sound Preview in AE 5

Sound Preview in AE 5

Sound Preview in AE 5

Hi everybody,

I set up my new mac a few days ago and there s someting I do not understand in After effects 5. I actually can not preview sound and movie together.
I checked :

- Sound is on on the Timeline
- Sound is on on the Time Controls Panel
- I can hear my sound while clicking it in the project panel
- I hear the sound also while hitting control button

Anyone has an idea, a special trick in the preferences settings ?

My config is as follows :
- AE 5.5 on Mac OS x AND AE 5 on Mac OS 9. Both versions shows the same problem
- Dual G4 1 ghz new versions - 2 Gb RAM
Many thanks in advance

RE: Sound Preview in AE 5

You should be able to preview them together without doing anything special in prefs.

When you hit cntrl + return (if I remember correctly) you preview every other frame with audio.

hitting the space bar lets you preview just video, & hitting the period(I think ) previews audio. Now for that there is a setting in prefs that allows you to set how much of the audio you want to hear when you hit the period.

RE: Sound Preview in AE 5

You were right. No need to set anything in prefs.

Actually, hitting 0 on num pad just made it ! Did not know this shortcut before but...

Thanks for your help
