Hey everyone. This is a great site. Ok, brown nosing aside, here's my issue...
I just got Final Cut Pro 7.0. I set in and out points on a file I had in my Viewer and dragged it to the Timeline. When I go to play it back by pressing spacebar or the play button on the Canvas, all I hear is beeping, like a test tones.
I can scrub through the clip on the Canvas using any of the three scrubbers and the audio is there, albeit fragmented because I'm scrubbing. yet when I go to play it all I hear are beeps. Is there a setting I'm missing, forgot to install, or is there some sort of audio playback engine option I'm missing.
he's correct. at the top of your timeline you will see a red line. that means your timeline sequence needs to be rendered. the beep, beep, beep you hear means that audio needs to be rendered. when that happens, just press the option + R keys and render your timeline sequence. make sure your RT settings, found in the lower left side of the timeline are set at Unlimited, Dynamic, Dynamic. that setting will aid in preventing frequent need to render.
