Audio problems

Shooter99Shooter99 Website User Posts: 93 Just Starting Out

Hey all.

Just wondering than if i import like 50min long wav files HitFilm will be first giving error those and after that reimport makes thoe work but audio won't be heard...
So i have to open external audio software where i split it like 2 or 3 pieces and import those pieces.

Is there some audio lenght limits with HitFilm?

    I just tried loading two audio files into Hitfilm 4 Express and Hitfilm Pro 2017--a wav file just over an hour long and a 50 minute mp3. Both files loaded into both programs with no issues.

    What's the source of your audio files? You might want to DOWNLOAD MEDIAINFO (it's free) and upload a report here so we can take a look at your original source.

    Hitfilm cannot import audio files with multiple ID3 tags. By resaving your original file as sections you would be stripping out ID3 tags. Downloading an ID3 tag editor and using that to strip ID3 tags might also solve the issue.

    Ah.... Ok, what I'm seeing here is two streams, one that's the full length of the file, and the other that's basically nothing.... Hitfilm also doesn't support files with multiple audio streams.

    This mediainfo report didn't say anything about ID3 tags.

    Try resaving the entire length file (instead of trimming it) as a new file (change the file name, of course) and importing that to Hitfilm? That might do it.

    Ah, okies.

    Well this one i got work by splitting it parts so that is not anymore problem but it is good to know for future.

    Thanks for helping once again !

  • Triem23Triem23 Moderator Moderator, Website User, Ambassador, Imerge Beta Tester, HitFilm Beta Tester Posts: 18,225 Ambassador

    No problem. Even though cutting into smaller segments worked this time, could you try re-rendering a full copy anyway just to see if it work? That way we'd totally know for next time, and also, I just kinda want to know if I'm reading that Mediainfo report correctly. That would double-check me so if another user has the same issue I'm certain if the advice is correct. :-)

    Triem23  Sorry, i have been bit busy lately.

    @Shooter99 - Any update on this issue?

  • Shooter99Shooter99 Website User Posts: 93 Just Starting Out

    Sorry, i have been busy cause i had my new computer setup.

    So back to this, i imported another audio like that, taken with my Tascam.

    Audio file was 2 hours and 10 minutes long what i enchanted with Audacity for 1hour and 50 min long clip and save it like last time that audio file.

    Then i dropped that in HitFilm Pro and it keep loading and loading but it worked just fine.

    Well things what have change between these are just few updates with Hitfilm + i had totally new computer.

    But about this, i am not able to remade error...

    Did you write out an mp3 or a wav from Audacity? HF has some issues with certain mp3 variants.
