After Effects can't support videos with multiple audio tracks?
on Jan 11, 2014 at 11:22:22 pm

Hey all.
I've been using Sony Vegas to compose videos for my youtube channel, and bits of after effects thrown in.
I wanted to try and build the entire videos in after effects, I like it so much more, however...
I have some footage I recorded which has multiple audio tracks.

It seems that after effects doesn't support multiple audio tracks?

Any suggestions?

Thanks

AE is for compositing, not audio editing. Create your effects/composites in AE and do the audio edit in another program, and then edit them together for your final. That's the normal workflow 99.9% of the time.

Ok, thanks but how do you create effects that sync with the audio then?

There are some effects that can be driven by audio, and for those I might bring a scratch track into my AE timeline. Most of the time though, I work out my audio elsewhere and just make timecode notes and do it that way.

You could render out your audio mix to one track and bring that into AE.
