I'm trying to import some audio into an Animate project on my MacBook Pro, but when it gets added to the project, it is represented by a flat line, and when I press play, there's only silence. I've imported it as a PCM wave file, an AIFF file, and an mp3 file, and none of them work. What should I do?

Hi mate,

Before you feed an audio file to Animate, make sure it is 16-bit, 44kHz PCM.

Then it will work.

CBR MP3s work too.

if its a flat line, it seems that the clip has no audio. Have you been able to play it elsewhere? Have you added audio in Animate before?

Thanks,

It's an audio clip that I worked on in Adobe Audition, and it works perfectly there.

ok. after you import it into the timeline, try moving the playhead down the timeline, lets say to frame 50 (you made need to add more frames to hear the full sound) and on frame 50 or so, press F5 or right-click> Insert Frame

Now your sound should play when you press enter or if you test your movie (Command>Return)

Hope that helps. If not, please send me the audio file.

thanks,
Mark

Apparently it's a 32-bit 44.1kHz PCMwav file. How do I change that?

In an audio application such as Audacity, Audition or other audio converter.

Go from 32-bit to 16-bit; 44.1kHz is what you need.
