I'm adding speak to a existing video, and because of the way i structured it, it's only feasible to put the audio in the precomp where my footage is to get the timing right. But when i render my main comp, the speak from the precomps don't play.
There's a soundtrack playing in the main comp, and that's rendering fine, and when i go into the precomps and make a RAM preview, the speak plays fine. But whenever i render it all out, i can only hear the audio from the Main comp (the one with the soundtrack and all the precomps with the speak in 'em).
1) You disabled the precomp audio by turning off its audio switch: its icon looks like a little speaker.
2) You're using compress audio: mp3, ac3, etc. You can't use compressed audio in AE properly. You need to convert it to sav or aiff files first.
