So, I've done some searching on this subject, and I haven't found any satisfactory answers.
I recently build this shiny, new computer, full of RAM and processing cores, but when I go to RAM preview... I have no sound. I open the exact same file in WMP and VLC, and I can hear everything perfectly.
I go to Composition > Preview and 'Audio' is checked.
I got to Edit > Preferences > Audio Hardware, and I only have one option for Default Audio Device: "After Effects WDM Sound".
When I go into 'Details' in Edit > Preferences > Audio Hardware, I get this:
The audio doesn't work, regardless of every combination of boxes I check.
When I go into Edit > Preferences > Audio Output Mapping, I get this:
Right and Left are mapped to 'Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) - 1' and '2' respectively.
I'm tearing my hair out on how to fix this, and I could really use your help. Thanks.
