I'm new to after effects and love the chroma key capabilities.

However, when I export videos the audio has a very messed-up quality. You can watch it here. http://icedrone.com/keyword-research-guide-part-1/

I'm pretty sure this is caused by a "High Volume Limit"(my own word) being placed on the audio, meaning the sound waves are cut off at a certain point.

Check out this screenshot(when I exported the video from After Effects and pasted it in Camtasia).



You can see the soundwaves are cut off in an unnatural fashion.

Anyone know how to solve this? (and export the soundwaves completely natural from After Effects).

Will thank for answers!

Inside your "Green Screen" comp, do you have multiple layers of the same footage? If so, you must mute the volume (click the speaker icon for the layer) for all but one of them. Otherwise, the audio from every copy of that footage is being summed together on output, leading to the distortion you're hearing.
