Diagonal greyed lines in audio, no audio?
on Sep 28, 2016 at 6:59:41 pm

Howdy y'all-
We are converting a lot of projects into Premiere, and when we do all the audio shows up diagonal greyed out. As of now we have to go in and re-add each piece of audio. The tracks are not locked. Does anyone know why this is occurring?

Has the audio in the original timeline been sped up or something similar? The stripes mean that the linked file is incorrect length compared to what it was.

Yes each of those files were sped up in the other program (Sony Vegas, I guess now "Magix Vegas"). Previously I have used the export system from there and imported into Premiere without a problem, we would just manually go through and adjust the Speed/Duration to match the Sony speed up that we had put on it.

When you say it is the incorrect length compared to what it was, what does that mean? It was literally nothing before importing it into the timeline.

Is there a way to fix it?

Thanks
Matt

I think you will need to import the original untouched audio files and do the speed work on them again. The Vegas FX info is not translating to the Premiere timeline.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2015.02 (as of 6/2016)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.

previously it would open the audio event but just cut it off, and we could repair with a simple change of speed.

hmmm...

if anyone has another trick that would be appreciated.

Maybe it would work on Adobe cc 2014? I think that's where we tested it.

[matt chapman] "When you say it is the incorrect length compared to what it was, what does that mean? It was literally nothing before importing it into the timeline."

Premiere has found the correct file, but not the correct part that should be playing. This probably happens because the Sony Vegas effect isn't translated throuh correctly. For example the audio file would have a timecode from one to five seconds. Then with some error from the effect translation it's asking the file to play from six seconds forwards. Which isn't available.

The same thing can happen if you interpret footage frame rate and don't use the same interpretation when you're relinking the footage. When you're interpreting footage the timecode changes and there'll be a timecode that isn't found in the original file. It can find the file, but not the part that should be playing in the timeline.
