Hi

Is it possible to hear parts of a song in after effects while working with it? while rendering with space maybe?
At the moment I can just work with the waveform, thats not very helpfully.
i need to adjust some beats to some objects.

do you know what I mean?

appreciate for any help.

greets from germany

no that link doesnt really help.
I've seen it before.

I can play the song with alt + numpad ,
but I dont need to play it alone, I need it playing with a preview of the other comps (final comp with all other comps in it)
maybe while rendering, alternativly if its ready with the rendering... to see if the items pops up in the right moment.
you know?
otherwise I have to export the video everytime.



and thats what I dont know and dont find anywhere

Are you using RAM preview? That plays audio and video together.

You are simply experiencing the same thing EVERYONE who uses AE experiences. You can't play anything in AE. It has to render everything. It has always been that way.

People work out their own ways to deal with the fact that there is NOTHING real time about AE. There are several strategies for previewing that speed the process, and you should learn to use them.
