Weird audio issue when printing to video

I am attempting to dub a couple of old projects to tape using the Print to Video command (firewire connection to Panasonic DVX-100A MiniDV camera). I have used this method many times in the past with success. However, I have now tried two different projects tonight and had the same strange issue: The project plays back perfectly normally in the timeline, through the computer speakers, but when I Print to Video, there will be one part where a small audio "blip" can be heard. It sounds like either a snippet of tone or the sound of un-rendered audio... except it's all rendered.
Anybody have any suggestions? It's really weird that it plays back something different in Print to Video than it does in regular playback... Any help is appreciated.

That did it, thanks! I feel kind of dumb, I've never used that function before. Is that something I should have been doing all along? Anyway, thanks again. It's nice to get a response and have it work on the first try. So refreshing.

  • FAQ: How do I troubleshoot audio issues when importing .MTS files?

    Hello.   The link FAQ: How do I troubleshoot audio issues when importing .MTS files?
    does not work, and i need the answer please. My imported MTS clips are not playing back audio because it seems that no audio imported with the video.   Thanks, Don.

    Hi there
    Audio plays when the object with the audio assigned appears. This is why you hear it when the Button appears.
    Try assigning the audio instead to the object that appears when you click the button. Perhaps the caption.
    Cheers... Rick

  • I have a user that has an issue when printing to PDF.

    I have a user that has an issue when printing to PDF. When printing to PDF the PC will intermittently freeze and sometimes the print spooler will crash taking all other printers offline. A reboot clears it up for a while but then it comes back.
    Acrobat 11 Pro
    Windows 7 x64
    Office 2010 Professional
    Any help would be great!  Thanks

    I manage a network of 30,000 + workstations all with Acrobat Pro 10.  Upon upgrading to 10.1.10, they all exhibited similar symptoms printing to the PDF printer.  The problem is most obvious in IE 11, it will cause the browser to stop responding, however it seems to depend on the page being viewed.  For example we can print, but not
    And of course there is no method to roll back to 10.1.9, other than to completely remove and re-install Acrobat.
    I hope this is getting addressed soon!

  • Loosing audio when printing to video

    I'm working with FCE HD 3.0. I use a Powermac G5-2x1.8. Memory: 3 GB.
    Systemdrive: 150 GB.
    Internal scratchdrive: 280 GB.
    System: Mac OSX 10.3.9. My camera is a Sony HDR-HC3.
    My scratchdisk is filled with 188 GB.
    I edited a 40 min. movie. When I play the timeline everything is fine.
    When I print to tape I lose some parts of teh musictracks (track 5 and 6), Sometimes I even loose little parts of the clipsound (track 1 and 2).
    Befor I print to video I render video and audio, use 'mixdown' and refresh videodevice.
    How to get a good result?
    G5-2x1.8   Mac OS X (10.3.9)  

    If there is a song bought on iTune Music Store, you can't use this track.
    Did you render an audio mixdown before export ?
    Try a test version with just one minute of movie. (set in and out point in timeline and do the print to tape operation).
    Try a print to tape from a cold start mac.
    Drag your playhead around your sequence before printing (it's seem that this process load the cahe memory, at least in my own experience)
    If the problem is still there, you can also do an audio track mix quicktime conversion export (aiff 16 bit) from your sequence, import it into a new sequence, open your previous edited one in editor (option clik), do uncheck audio A1 and A2 target, and drag the video content on V1 in the new sequence. Drag your exported audio on A1 A2.
    Do a check for the synch of your movie.
    Do not forget to do an audio mixdown before print to tape.
    Does your hard drive is fragmented or full at more than 80% level?

  • Unable to recognize deck when printing to video (fcp 6.0.5)

    I am driving myself absolutely crazy trying to figure this one out. I found a previous thread discussing the same problem ( but nothing has worked.
    My footage was shot using a Sony HVR-V1U. I captured using the ProRes 422 codec. My audio video settings are set with the following...
    sequence preset: Apple Pro Res 422 1440 x 1080 60i 48khz
    capture preset: Apple Pro Res 422
    device control preset: sony firewire hdv
    When click on the A/V tab, different output for edit to tape/print to video is selected:
    video: [Missing] HDV 1440 x 1080 60i
    audio: default
    Im not sure why the missing is there. My firewire port is working and i can capture without a problem.
    I've tried trashing the prefs and am at a loss. This problem may have an easy solution and really hope someone can help!

    Sorry to say, these days that machine is marginal, and HDV is processor intensive. I hate that darned codec already.
    Just for laughs, capture one clip as prores and see if you can recreate the behaviour. It might behoove you to re-ingest your footage if you haven't gotten too far along.

  • Video playback on external monitor working. Only works when Print to Video

    I'm having a problem. I'm using FCP 5. When editing, my video playback is not showing up on my external monitor (Sharp MiniDV camcorder). It does however show up on the external monitor when I "Print to Video." This is the first time using FCP 5. I never had this problem with previous versions of FCP. Can anyone tell me whats going on? Thanks

    #8 External Monitor Viewing.
    Shane's Stock Answer #8:
    A simple path is mac > firewire > camera or deck > rca cables > tv
    Then start up your camera and tv, then open fcp.
    Then go View > External video > all frames
    Video playback should be Apple firewire NTSC (If you are using an NTSC set)
    Audio playback should be Audio follows Video
    Techinially, this should send synched video to your TV
    If for some reason you can't view your timeline on your external monitor, there are a few things to try:
    1) Make sure that the camera/deck is connected and powered on BEFORE you open FCP.
    2) In the Final Cut Pro menu select AUDIO/VIDEO Preferences and make sure your signal is being sent out thru Firewire DV.
    3) Go to the menu and select VIEW>EXTERNAL>ALL FRAMES.
    4) Click in the % box above the image and select FIT TO WINDOW.
    5) Go to VIEW->refresh A/V devices
    6) Make sure the Log & Capture window is closed
    If you want it to play in both the canvas and the external monitor you need to go to the FINAL CUT PRO menu and select AUDIO/VIDIO settings and make sure MIRROR ON DESKTOP is selected under the PLAYBACK OUTPUT section

  • Audio issue while creating a video in PS6

    I've dropped an mp4 file into the audio line of my video ... both speaker icons are on. When I try to play the video, the top speaker icon appears to go to the off position and I have no audio. When I stop the video, the icon appears to be on again. What gives?
    I also tried mp3

    my apologies for not replying promptly.
    It's a MacBook Pro, running 10.9.1 and PS CS6. What I was referring to was one of two speaker/mute icons related to the timeline fora video. One (the lower one) is on the audio track and the other (the top one) is above all the timelines with the play/stop/transitions buttons.
    subsequently, I've rebooted my system ... and it all works. Not exactly very scientific, but ... I'm back in business.
    Thank you for taking the time to reply and assist me with the issue.
    have a great day/night ... and stay warm if you're anywhere near this arctic system.

  • No audio after I Print to!

    After I have printed to video there is no audio attached to my edited sequences, even though during playback in the timeline there is obviously audio. When I print to video how do I make sure the audio goes along with it?

    Monitor audio from the deck you are outputting to. Make SURE audio is being sent to the deck...if via firewire, make sure in the Audio/Video settings you have audio out set to firewire.

  • Xperia Z2 Tablet : Weird volume issue playing music or videos

    I picked up the Xperia Z2 Tablet about a week after I got the Z3v for that $299 tablet deal.  I love the tablet; it's fast and works great.  But, I noticed that sometimes when playing music (the included loaded songs) it would sometimes lower the volume on it's own until I could barely hear it.  Re-orienting the tablet (so it auto rotates) would immediately fix it, and the volume would return to it's original setting (for 10-20 secs) until you rotated the tablet again.   I also tried this with youtube videos, my own loaded videos of concerts I took, and iHeart radio streaming music.  All will display this behavior.  I checked all the sound and volume settings, even hard reset the tablet erasing everything.    I then took the tablet back to my Verizon Wireless Store and they exchanged it.   The new one does the exact same's 99 percent of the time, and there is a slim chance that every so often it does not do this, but it's extremely annoying.  I searched online and cannot find any similar issue.   Anyone observe this behavior?   I took it back too the Verizon store again, but it actually stopped doing it there, but when I got home after about 15 minutes of playing some streaming iHeart, it does it again.  
    Looking for an answer.

        This is very strange therabbitssing! This is the first time I hear of audio issues like the one outlined in your post. It is particularly strange that this issue could not be duplicated at the store. Have you tried other streaming application to see if issue continues? Have you downloaded any application that require access to your device speaker or microphone? Does the audio issue occur also when using headphones?

  • Printing issues when printing to Server 2008 R2 Print Server

    We have a problem with netwok printing that encompasses many different areas and versions of Windows OSes so I will be posting this in a few different places.
    Let me lay this out for you. We have a single Server 2008 R2 print server with 300 printers of various models. This print server has both 32 and 64-bit drivers installed for every printer. For the HP printers we are using the HP Universal Printing PCL 6
    (version and for the Ricoh printers we are using their PCL6 driver for universal printing version 3.5. All drivers run in Isolation mode and no printer gets published to AD.
    We have a mix of Windows clients printing to these printers, both XP Pro and Windows 7 32 and 64-bit.
    Now for the problems: The other day one Isolation host on the server went crazy, processing was hitting 100% and memory was fluctuating and growing a lot. After investigating a little that isolation host was having issues accessing the Ricoh Driver (which
    was 3.4 at the time). In an attempt to resolve the issue we updated the driver to V. 3.5. This seemed to fix the isolation issues and things calmed down however this is the beginning of many other issues for the clients. Both Windows OS versions (XP and 7)
    don't seem to be either downloading and installing the updated driver and/or doing so correctly. Clients are now experiencing extremely slow printing, applications such as Word, Outlook, Excel and others open slowly and it can take 2-3 minutes for print dialog
    boxes to open. In all cases it seems that we have to have a tech delete the printer(s), delete the driver and then re-install the printer to make things better but for some reason, which is really unknown, this process doesn't work for every machine and on
    some we can't even remove the old drivers at all without booting into SafeMode and doing it that way.
    With all of that said, are there any suggestions as to why the clients aren't downloading and installing the drivers from the server correctly? How to avoid these issues when we need to upgrade the drivers on the server in the future? Most importantly right
    now, are there any recommendations or scripts on how to force the deletions of the printer, driver, reset the print spoolers and then re-add the printers in a more automated fashion?
    I have played with both wmic, pnputil and printuidll and am trying to put something together but without a set solution that will work consistently it becomes a lot more difficult.

    We are experiencing a very similar issue.
    Windows Server 2008 R2. Printers are deployed over group policy.
    Clients range from Windows 7 to Windows 8. Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp environment also connects to these endpoints.
    We have A wide assortment of HP printers, and Ricoh Printers.
    For the ricoh's we have been historically using the PCL6 drivers for the individual device type (not universal print). Up till recently, it all was working fine, until about some time in the middle of june, when everything just seemed to go crazy.
    The issue was resolved by moving off from the PCL 6 drivers and using the PCL5e driver counterparts on all of our ricoh printers.
    It would crash XenDesktop applications, it would crash office applications.
    The print spooler would lock up, even if the ricoh printers were not actually used, just as long as they were loaded.
    Even after loading PCL5 on the servers, some of the clients would simply not download the PCL5 version of the driver from the print server. In order to resolve this, I have created the steps below. Be advised, this may possibly cause damage on your system.
    We just found it worked great for us. Local printers will likely have to be manually reinstalled after this.
    Stop the print spooler
    Open C:\Windows\System32\Spool and delete the following
    All files in SERVERS
    All files in PRINTERS
    All files in drivers
    All files in prtprocs
    Start the print spooler
    Open a command prompt as administrator, and run the following command
    Cscript C:\windows\system32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\prndrvr.vbs -x
    This should further delete all print drivers.
    Open a command prompt as a standard user (not administrator) and run the following
    Now wait. It takes a while, but the printers will slowly start to repopulate.
    I am still not sure what is going on with the PCL6 drivers for ricoh, and why this issue is happening. I'm guessing it has something to do with the Ricoh auto update that is included in their pcl6 drivers. Maybe some sort of auto update happened recently.

  • Strange layers issue when printing

    Hi Guys,
    I am having a strange issue which is probably easy to fix however I am not a heavy adobe user and dont know where to start.
    This is the rough process to explain my point but a summary is - when printing PDF files they do not appear as they do on screen.
    A picture/document is created in Adobe Illustrator, an outline PDF is then created and saved
    I can open the outline PDF successfully, in newer versions of PDF Reader (v8+) the PDF displays on screen correctly. In older versions the PDF is missing lines or various things.
    If I print this PDF all these lines etc still missing. I know this sounds vague but I will try and explain.
    An example is this - the document is a black box with a silver smaller box on top in the centre. On the screen it shows correctly. When I print, the black box is printed with no silver box.
    I have just discovered that the silver box is actually printed however its printed in the background so I think its got to do with layers? If I make the black box to be white, and then print I can see my silver box, so its clear it has been printed in the wrong order.
    Oh another thing I have found is the default format for saving PDF files is v1.5 if I choose an older version, the layers are printed correctly
    I have both Adobe reader installed on Mac's and PC and the issue happens on both
    Surely all the printers I have can't be all in-compatible
    Kyocera KM-4050
    Kyocera FSC5200
    Canon MX850
    Lanier MP2500
    Lanier MP2800

    This is not a scanning resolution factor and I have been scanning this way for years. These scans are not photos but documents. This problem just started.  And as I said before, the problem also occurs when doing a save as from Illustrator, as well as supplied files from clients, so the scanning process has nothing to do with it. I just can't get them to print right.

  • Color issues when printing AI files on PostScript

    First off, please forgive me if this is  not the right forum or if I am not using the right terms.  I am the network admin for our company and I'm posting this on behalf of our designer.
    We recently added PostScript drivers to our Sharp printers, and we have been seeing odd printing results when printing embedded .AI files.
    We use CreativeSuite CS5, and our developer has hundreds of images with pure white and transparent backgrounds stored in .AI format.  When these images are embedded/linked to an Indesign document they print with a solid black background and what appears to be an inverted color pattern, almost like a photo negative.
    All embedded EPS files print fine.  The affected .AI files print fine when printed directly from Illustrator.
    The embedded images print fine using a PCL driver.  We are trying to implement the Postscript driver for better color quality.
    Any ideas?
    (We are using Windows XP SP3, x86
    Server based network printing on Windows 2003 x86)
    Thanks in advance

    You'll get better and faster responses if you post in the Adobe Illustrator forum.  This is an application-specific question rather than a color management issue.

  • IPhone 5 audio issues when paired with surround sound via Bluetooth.

    iPhone 5 has developed audio issues since ios7 updates when its connected to surround sound system via Bluetooth. Audio jumps and skips in erratic and unpredictable manner on music app and worse on third party apps such as YouTube  . Have restored phone from factory settings etc. Have also checked surround sound for fault with Bluetooth; iPhone 4 ios7 works fine, android works fine but newest iPod touch with ios7 appears to have developed same issue as iPhone 5 since ios7 updates. Advise people to check for this issue on their Bluetooth devices and any advice would be appreciated on this issue  :) 

    Hey there Vxas,
    It sounds like you are gettings some very unexpected behaviour from the iPhone to your bluetooth surround sound system. I would try the troubleshooting recommended in this article:
    iOS: How to troubleshoot Bluetooth connections
    Check that you are in range of the Bluetooth device with which you are trying to pair your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Most Bluetooth devices have a range of approximately 30 feet.
    On your iOS device, tap Settings > Bluetooth and find your device in the list. If your device says Not Connected, tap the name of your device to attempt to connect it.
    Tap Settings > Bluetooth and turn Bluetooth off and then on again.
    Make sure that your Bluetooth accessory is turned on and fully charged or connected to power.
    Restart your iOS device.
    Tap Settings > Bluetooth and locate the Bluetooth accessory you are currently connected to or attempting to connect to. Then tap and Forget this Device. Try to pair your Bluetooth accessory again.
    Note: You may need to re-enter your Bluetooth accessory PIN if your accessory requires one. Some common PINs are 0000, 1111, and 1234.
    Restart your Bluetooth accessory by turning it off and then on again1.
    Update your device to the latest version of software. See how to update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
    If your Bluetooth accessory has upgradeable firmware, check to see that you have the latest version1, 2.
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    Take care,

  • Minor Layout Issue when Printing Invoices in Chrome (v20.0.1132.47)

    This is a relatively minor issue in the big scheme of things but a client of ours has reported a layout issue when bulk printing invoices in Chrome. It could be default browser behaviour which BC has no control over but I thought I’d submit it anyway.
    It occurs when you’re viewing the default Order Report (!/CRM/OrderList.aspx) in the BC v3 interface and you want to print invoices in bulk (see screenshot below).
    When you print invoices in bulk in Chrome they print on overlapping pages, as opposed to Firefox where each invoice will print on a separate page, which makes management much easier for our client. I’ve tried tinkering with the print settings inside of Chrome but I can seem to change it.
    Does anyone know a way around this or are we dealing with default browser behavior that is out of our hands?

    Could someone assist please?

  • Scaling issue when printing to HP devices from InDesign CS4

    I seem to have a recurring error printing from InDesign CS4 (OS X Leopard 10.5.8) to both my HP printers (C3180 & Officejet Pro 8500). When printing at 100% size, the artwork gets scaled up slightly. For example, creating a simple 5 x 5" box ends up coming out at 5.125 x 5.125" on the printed sheet (with no scaling turned on in the print dialogue).
    I've not been able to find any support issues related to this on either HP or Adobe's site. I suspect it's s driver/postscript incompatability issue. The same artwork prints at the correct size when exporting to PDF and printing from Acrobat.
    Curious if anyone else is experiencing the same problem.

    A large percentage of problems we see related to printing seem to be with HP printers. Are you doing borderless or anything like that? What is the page size and scaling in the driver?
