Can anyone tell me whats with the audio pops & crackles when playing from the timeline? The audio on the clips is fine. There's also a "dropout" looking thing in the video from time to time. What gives?
also try throwing away your audio render files. I've hada similar problems with my system. I'll either trash the audio render files or export the audio as an Aiff file and re-import that file back into the timeline. Seems to work most every time.
