I edited a whole project with the audio working. I then rendered the video and all of a sudden there was no audio on the rendered project or the version in the program.
Does anyone know why this is happening?
There are still audiopeaks for the audio however when trying to edit no audio shows.
Could it have to do with turning off resampling?
Do you have any audio FX applied to the track or event? Something like an equalizer could reduce the audio volume if improperly set. I'm sure you have checked your PC speaker volume, correct?
We are just shooting in the dark until you post more. What is the source and does it play audio in a player such as VLC? What template did you use to render the file?, etc. etc.
If the audio on your track went away prior to you rendering, that would explain why the rendered file does play audio, but very unlikely rendering a video is going to kill off the audio on the timeline track.
No problem, although not knowing what to tell us has its downside.
Is this a new problem? ie you have used the software successfully before.
My own work-method for short films is to render to HDD and only then delve into DVD Architect, and even then I will re-render that to a HDD, so I can check it before the final Burn ( which takes on a few minutes ). More recently I avoid DVDAS and Copy rendered movies to Memory Sticks - so I get to project the full HD.
As others have suggested it's possible to Mute and not recognise the solution, although I recall the audio-track goes black, so it would be obvious....
Are you rendering using the "Match Media settings" - this is often a good choice, at least until you are more familiar with the techy bits.
When you Render there are ( as I have found) many settings that appear to lose the Audio - obviously something I don't understand, but I expect the PC to point-out my mistakes, not just waste time regardless . . . . . Could this be the reason, I wonder.?.
Finally, do the Movie-Clips play OK ( with sound and Meters dancing ) when you "Play" the Timeline, using yr normal PC Audio speakers? ie Before you perform any Render process.
If you add the render media (without audio) back to the timeline (on it's own track), can you see an audio waveform? Can you hear any audio during preview? Just fishing for another possible cause of your problem.
OK, that would confirm to me that there is, as you say, no audio in your rendered file. In the mean time, looking back over your thread, I don't see a mention of using the old reset option. Have you tried to reset your Movie Studio program?
Press and hold down simultaneously the Shift+Ctrl keys, then double click on the desktop icon. Check the box 'Delete cached application data', then click 'Yes'. Sometimes built up garbage in the cache will cause strange and weird issues and deleting the cache will straighten things out.
It's possible that changing the audio resampling settings in your project properties is the problem.
Your audio render settings screen capture looks like you are rendering audio at 48,000 Hz (capture is blurry on my computer). If your sound card doesn't support that rate (not all do) and you turned off resampling, it would explain why you hear nothing on playback. Some sound card drivers report back an error to MS when fed audio at an unsupported sample rate and refuse to play it. I know I've seen this behavior on an older computer of mine. Other sound card drivers may just ignore the audio and play back silence.
