Hey all -

Apologies in advance for the newbie question. Up to this point, been doing fine on some of my first "real" AE work, video and text only. However, client sent over some M4V video with sync sound and I can't seem to hear any audio unless I do a RAM preview. is this a normal thing? If not, what should I be looking at to adjust? Is there a better "flavor" of video for him to send that will allow the audio to be heard without the RP? Thanks in advance.

AE is behaving perfectly normally. It doesn't play anything. It previews everything.

For audio, you can hit the decimal point key on the numeric keypad. AE will preview audio-only for a length of time determind in AE Prefernces.

You can scrub audio: ctl/cmd-drag the timeline cursor. It works best if you hit the caps lock key to disable video.

You can play a 10-frame section of audio over and over again: cmd/ctl-click and hold on the timeline cursor.

There are plenty of audio preview options. No audio playback options.

M4V is unmuxed video only mp4 so there is no sound.
