View Full Version : Importing audio into layout : (

04-05-2006, 09:04 AM
Hi, all

I have my scene in layout and need to import some dialogue which i have recorded. I am going into scene editor, importing audio but it is always putting it at zero on the timeline. When i change the number in audio start time it doesn't change anything.

Any ideas?

Hmm, when you put in the Audio start time, are you entering the number thinking it's in frames or seconds? If you enter 1 for example, then it will start the audio at frame 30 (depending on what you have fps set to).

What version of LW are you using?

I'm using LW8.3 and it works fine in Layout. You need to set the number of frames you want to advance [after 0] or retard [before 0] the start point of the audio file. An advance of 10 seconds would be frame 300 in the Audio Start Time pop open panel, a retard would be -300. Also you may need to scrub the timeline frame marker to get LW to recognise the change if you are adjusting start/end times.

Another example: 10 seconds 5 frames would be 305 etc.

Hope this helps.
