Having issues exporting AAF sequences out of Premiere Pro, recieving errors such as:

  • Cannot embed audio source because its audio codec is not supported. Only WAVE and AIFC audio codecs are supported.


We've been exporting AAF's for Pro Tools for years without any issues and now we can't seem to deliver anything that works to our sound designers and mixers.


Frustratingly, one of the errors states the codecs aren't supported, but they're all just WAVE files.


We've tried rolling back to various different versions of Premiere and are having the same issue across those.


Done the usual delete media caches, trash preferences etc.


Tried exporting OMF's instead, however they seem to be totally out of sync and a right mess when our colleagues open them in ProTools.


We're running Premiere Pro 2021 (Version 15.0 - Build 41)


Mac Pro (Late 2013)

MacOS Catalina

Version 10.15.7

Processor - 2.7 GHz 12-Core Intel Xeon E5

Memory - 64GB Ram 1866 MHz DDR3

Graphics - AMD FirePro D700 6GB

Storage - 1TB Flash Storage


Media Location

SNS EVO 16 Bay NAS via 10GB Fibre


Again - This was all working totally fine before the latest update, now doesn't work at all on the latest version of when rolling back to previous versions.


And just a note Adobe - Problems like this cost us time and money. You really should start considering pulling your socks up and offering a responsible service support package for your customers. You are extremely difficult to get help from, but very fast to take our money.

Any help anyone can offer is greatly appreciated.


Thank you
