What you need to do is click on your output settings in the Render Queue (probably where it says "Lossless") and at the bottom of the Output Module Settings window you will see a checkbox for audio output.
Thanks for your help. I'll give it a shot. I noticed that the output audio was off in the render queue. I'll have to check to see how to turn it on. Thanks again for your help. I appreciate you taking the time to respond back to me. I'd like to have a newer version of After Effects. Do you know of a resource that sells older or used software? Just wondering.
Thanks for the heads up. I already have AE 6.5 on Windows 7. So I wasn't planning on upgrading my operating system. I would like to upgrade to a newer version of AE if I can without a lot of expense. Although I am just beginning to understand 6.5.
