Im very frustrated with after effects. Im to export for a video for youtube but am having issues. Ive spent the last 3 hours trying to figure this out and I cant seem to get it to work. It should be very simple and have done alot of googleing but no luck. I have a .png file and a .wav file that I import into AE. I place them both in the comp and then add them to the queue. under output mode I select mpeg2-DVD and make sure the audio output checkbox is selected. I then render everything to a m2v file but no sound! Can anyone help. Maybe a step by step of how to export a pic with audio in AE for youtube? Thanks guys!
Well when you import an image inside after effects into new comp the comp will be 1 frame long.
You have to press CTRL + K to go into composition settings and in the duration text box change the duration to the amount you need.
Then export like you did the last time and everything should be fine.
The .m2v format doesn’t contain audio,so try a different format.
Why m2v ? Export to H264 !
