Audio Waveform disappears when exporting to swf
on Apr 21, 2010 at 9:27:09 am

Hi guys,

Literally a day old in terms of AE experience. Picked it up very quickly and I'm thoroughly enjoying the work I'm doing.

Basically, I've added 3 mp3s to create 3 waveform animations. Well, 2 of them are waveforms, the other is a spectrum.

When I export this to swf, only the spectrum appears, the 2 waveforms don't. When I export them to any other format, they appear, but it's just swf.

As it goes with newbies, I'm betting this is the completely wrong way.

Any help would be appreciated :-)

1) NEVER use compressed audio like mp3 in AE. ALWAYS convert it to an aiff or wav file.

2) Go to the following link and READ EVERYTHING:

Thanks Dave, I'll give that a read.

Sorry if I hit a sore point there :-)

Relax, no sore point. It's just that AE neophytes typically don't understand how important it is to learn the basics, nor how quickly the application can hose them if they choose to ignore the basics.

Naively, I assumed I had the AE basics all figured out when I dived right in. I zipped up my wetsuit, put on my goggles, attached my flippers and jumped in... turns out I forgot the oxygen!

Ahum. Anyway, thanks for your help. AE really is a beast that I'd like to tame :-)
