I'm new at after effects. I expanded my composition length from 2:00 to 2:16 however the music I dropped in stops abruptly at 2 minutes. Any ideas on how I can fix this problem would be very helpful.

First thing -- are we talking AE Version 5 or AE CS5 (which is actually version 10)?

Second thing -- don't use mp3 or ANY kind of compressed audio. It gives AE fits, and misbehaves just often enough to give YOU fits.

Third thing -- I'll bet you need to read up on the proper techniques to use for previewing. Look for info on RAM Previewing. Don't use the space bar. It's useless.

Fourth thing -- AE may not be able to run properly on your machine if you have a newer operating system. We need to know.

Fifth thing -- while you're at it, tell us about your hardware, too.

And sixth thing -- stick with it! Once you learn the basics, AE is pretty fun!

I mis-read your post. Sorry.

It sounds like all you need to do is grab the audio layer's out point handle and drag it to the end of the timeline. Of course, if you don't HAVE additional audio, that won't work.
