I don’t really understand what your problem is. My guess is that you are hearing audio from a video clip you brought into AE, and are trying to also add music to the AE project as well. You hear unwanted audio coming from the clip correct? I wonder if your video clip has that ghost audio attached to it.
Simply turn off the little audio switch to the left the video clip layer in the timeline. You can also hold down command button while scrolling the timeline to preview the audio, or do a quick ram preview at low rez, to see if it worked.
That’s it sorta……
The clip plays at 0:50 and I need to hear the audio from the clip. It plays just fine at the intended start point. The problem is the audio from that clip is playing at the beginning of the project while another is playing. I don’t “see” the video clip while this happens but the audio of it just shows up out of nowhere and I can’t seem to stop it from happening. If I reduce the volume of the clip, it works but unfortunately reduces volume at the 0:50 mark where I NEED to hear it.
I can’t figure this out and I’ve tried using different video clips and have the same result.
