AE won't render with audio, even though settings seem to be fine...

I'm trying to export a 1.5 minute video as an AVI file. It renders fine, but the resulting file never has any audio. As far as I can tell, my settings are fine and there's no reason for it NOT to export the audio too.

- I'm using After Effects CC 2015
- The audio tracks are not muted, and audio plays back just fine in After Effects.
- Audio is checked in the output settings
- Audio files are all .wav format
- The rest of the files used are: .png, .jpg, .wav, .avi, .mov, .mp4

Anyone have any idea what might be going wrong?

There's a known issue in AE CC 2015 -- it can ONLY render out movies with audio if they're Quicktimes. AVI's -- no dice. No fix yet, but they're working on it.

In the Meantime, you can either make QT's or use AE CC 2014, where the problem doesn't exist.

Well, that's frustrating...

I was able to get around the issue by exporting separate video and audio files from AE, then combining them in Premiere.

Yeah, I don't know why people rely on AE for audio. I rarely render audio at all. My audio -- including lip-sync video with multiple audio tracks -- typically lives in an video editing application to begin with, so I just render the video, bring it into the NLE and life is good. Never a problem.

If I need audio in AE for reference purposes I import it, but I hardly ever render it with the video.

Glad you found a solution that worked. Just curious; did you try exporting the composition with Media Encoder instead of using the Render Queue? I've had a few export issues in AE 2015 and using Media Encoder seems to solve them for me.
