Adobe Premier 6.0 Sound Doesn't Play!

Hi All,

When I am in Adobe Premier 6.0 and I drag an .avi (with music and video) from the Project box down into the Timeline, I see that the Vidoe and Audio is inserted, but when I click the PLAY button on the Monitor there is no sound (I enabled the speaker on the monitor but that didn't help).

I can play the video in the Project box, and the audio and video play perfectly, but when I drag it into the Timeline or play it through the Monitor the music does not play.

Can someone tell me how to enable the audio when playing files through the Monitor or the Timeline?

Thanks for the help.

See if the speaker button (toggle track output/shy state) of the audio track (on the timeline windows) is on. For example, turn on the speaker button of the Audio 1 track.

What codec was used to encode the audio and video in the AVI? Are those codecs supported by Premiere?

Straight up you should be able to import a video into Project folder, drag it to Timeline, and then click on play button in the Program:Monitor window (Which is the right side player).

If not then try using the "Preview to RAM" option by pressing Enter or Return. Another option is to try the "Render Audio" under Timeline menu. But you shoudn't have to use these really until you start editing your work.

You may have to change your Project Settings --

Try using Render: To Screen

(not "To Disk" etc)
