Can't drag audio files onto timeline

I can usually drag audio files (.mp3, .mov, .aiff) right into a project and it loads into either an existing track or automatically creates a new one.
I can't do that anymore as it loads up into an already existing track that has audio already on it and edited.
Simply cannot import new audio, on new tracks.
Any suggestions?

Probably a matter of source patching:

  • Can't drag audio clips onto timeline in PPro CC

    It doesn't seem to be possible to drag an audio clip directly onto the timeline any more without first importing it into the project.
    In CS6, I could drag an audio file like a .wav, mp3 or similar directly on to the timeline.  CS6 would automatically add it to the project, it would be conformed, and its waveform would appear in the timeline.
    In CC, it doesn't add it to the project, and instead it creates what appears to be just an empty placeholder in the timeline.  There's no waveform, and no audio is heard when the sequence is played.
    With CC, it seems you have to import it into the project first, then drag it onto the timeline, creating an unncessary extra step.
    Also, if after importing that audio file into the project you then delete it, it doesn't get removed from the timeline, it just stays there.

    Feature is still there, has not changed.

  • Mail: Can't drag audio files

    Does anyone know how you can drag audio files from mail to anything else?
    You used to be able to just drag the file to for instance another mail, but now I can't "grab" the file.

    Do you mean that you are trying to drag the tunes into the main iTunes window or to the main desk top?
    Are these from an audio CD or previously ripped mp3/mp4?
    Is it possible that you have removed your "ownership and permissions" privileges from a particular folder and it is now locked preventing you from changing that folder?

  • Can't drag audio onto clips

    In iMovie and it wont let me drag an audio file onto my "clips"...I get an icon with a "slash", (like the "no smoking" signs.) I even went back to an earlier movie that I had created and it wouldn't let me drag another audio clip.
    I've have created many movies before, on the same laptop, but this time it's not letting. Is there a setting I should be looking at? (And yes, the audio file IS on my computer and NOT in the cloud!)

    Although we are continents apart - Australia (Perth) vs North America (US), we will not let time zones interfere with getting your Premiere Elements 8.0/8.0.1 working.
    1. The usual Premiere Elements 8 drill.
    a. Are the automatic features of Background Rendering and AutoAnalzyer turned Off?
    For Background Rendering, see Premiere Elements workspace Edit Menu/Preferences/General. For AutoAnalzyer, see Elements Organizer workspace Edit Menu/Preferences/AutoAnalyzer Options.
    b. Are you running the program from the 8.0.1 Update? If not, see Help Menu/Update?
    c. Do you have the latest version of QuickTime installed on your computer with Premiere Elements 8.0/8.0.1?
    Apple - QuickTime - Download
    2. The usual computer drill....for your Windows XP 32 bit (SP3, I presume)
    a. Is computer opitimized, defragmented, etc.
    CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
    b. Are you running your computer from a User Account with Administrative Privileges? That is important for Premiere Elements 8 as well as for its
    required QuickTime. In addition, right click the computer desktop icon for Premiere Elements 8 and select and apply Run As Administrator.
    3. Project Specifics
    For now, import your source media into the project from the computer hard drive using the project's Get Media/Files and Folders. Leave the Elements Organizer and Albums out of the equation for now. We will circle back to it soon after we decide everything else is working as it should be.
    a. You need to set a project preset. And, that project preset should match the properties of your source media. So important to know properties of source media.
    b. When you import your source media into a project you will get a red line over its content if the project preset is not a match - either because you set the wrong one or the program does not have a match for your particular video. That red line means that you are not seeing the best possible preview of what is being played back in the Edit area monitor. To get the best possible preview, you hit the Enter key of the computer main keyboard to get a rendered Timeline (red line goes from red to green after this type of rendering). That green line over your rendered Timeline indicates that you are now getting the best possible preview. This is solely a preview thing. Longer story, but I will leave it at that for now.
    c. Check Edit Menu/Preferences/Scratch Disks to assure that those Scratch Disks are being saved to a computer hard drive location with enough free space to accept them. Make sure that you do not have pile ups of previews files, conformed audio files, and conformed video files.
    See Local Disk C\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\Adobe\Premiere Elements\9.0
    Never move, delete, or rename source files after they have been imported into a project which has been saved/closed. Otherwise, nasty media disconnect problems. You have only copies of media in Premiere Elements. The originals are on the hard drive, and the project must trace back to the originals where they were at import.
    Based on the above, try to start a new project. But, let me know ahead of time what you will be importing into the project. I am looking for
    video compression
    audio compression
    frame size
    frame rate
    interlaced or progressive
    pixel aspect ratio
    If you do not know, we could try to get that type of information from knowing the brand/model/settings for the camera that recorded the video.
    Pixel dimensions and how many photos?
    Lots and lots of details, but eventually they all mellow into one workflow that you can customize for your projects.
    Please do not hesitate to ask questions or to ask for clarification. We can go at whatever pace you feel comfortable with.

  • The audio file is not recognized by Logic. Can't import audio files?

    The audio files are on my desktop. Logic 9.1.1 will not recognize them and gives me this message when I try to drag and drop OR Import Audio File OR use Audio Bin.
    As far as I know, I am using wave files (extension .wav). So what could be the problem. Here's a picture of how the files look on my desktop.
    The regular silver and blue iTunes icons look like this when I Get Info:
    The black iTunes icons look like this when I Get Info:
    Importantly, the black iTunes (only 2 out of the 18 audio files) are the ones that actually import. Does it have something to do with the fact that it shows under "More Info > Audio Channels 1" vs. the silver and blue iTunes .wav files (which do NOT have this)?
    Furthermore, here is the process I used to get the audio files in the first place. On my PC, I exported audio files from my Ableton Live project onto a thumbdrive. I copied the audio files from my thumbdrive to my Mac. Maybe this had something to do with it.
    Also, as you can see, under Sharing and Permissions > there is only "read and write" for all names, so it's not a permissions thing.

    Thanks for your reply.
    +Can you play them as Preview (select in Finder, hit spacebar)?+ No. The black iTunes icons play with no sound and the silver and blue iTunes icons do not even come up in Preview at all.
    +Will iTunes play them?+ Only the black iTunes files (2 out of the 18). When I click on a silver and blue icon'd file, it will not even open in iTunes.
    why on the desktop? it was just a temporary thing. I was not able to pull them into my Audio Bin. I tried what you suggested. I put the files in the Audio Files folder of my project. When I go to open them from within Logic by Import Audio File, they are visible but greyed out. I don't use the desktop except for testing stuff like you do.
    +How was the thumb drive formatted? FAT32 or other DOS-format, or Mac OS Extended (HFS)?
    +the extension is not where apps look to recognize an audio file format, it is the header data. Some audio programs can read RAW audio files, but more about that after your reply to this one.+ It is formatted MS-DOS (FAT 32).
    (*I wrote all this stuff above while I was working and waiting for the PC to write to my thumbdrive again*******finally I got everything to show up.
    I loaded the files again from the thumbdrive. This time they were all in the black iTunes format, and I put them directly in the Audio Files folder like you suggested. After some doing everything works fine. Weird.

  • How can I add audio files manually to my iphone when iTunes match is turned on?

    I use iTunes match, and after resolving the debacle after updating to iOS 6 listed here: it seems to be working fine. My problem is as follows:
    I have a series of audio files (lecture recordings) that have been uploaded to iTunes match (and so appear on my phone), but of which I also still have the actual files on my computer harddrive. These specific files will neither stream nor download from iTunes match on my phone (and did not before the update to iOS6 either). They play fine, however, on iTunes on my computer. Before the update I was able to get around this problem by manually dragging the files from my computer harddrive to the connected iPhone within iTunes. I no longer have the option of doing this - any attempted dragging of files onto the iPhone results in them simply 'bouncing back.' This is true not just of these files, but also of all other music files, including those which are listed in iTunes as being 'ineligible' for iTunes Match, and so are not represented on the iPhone at all.
    Thank you for any help!

    iTune Match is now considered a streaming service, with the optional download option. You cannot use iTunes to transfer songs anymore and need to use it exclusively on the device.
    You also cannot download single files anymore, only albums and artist is supported.
    The only workaround I've found was to click the cloud button for the album, and cancel all songs I don't want before they download.

  • Dragging a file onto finder in Mountain Lion

    Hi there,
    I am asking this question here because there isn't a Mountain Lion section yet. When I drag a file onto the finder icon in the dock I used to get a pop up finder window where I was able to navigate to other maps to find the right destination for my file. In Mountain Lion this is no longer the case and when I drag a file onto the icon I get the shaded background image because I don't have a finder window open already (this wasn't necessary in previous versions). I was wondering if there are more people experiencing this problem and if someone knows how to fix it? Thanks in advance!
    Kind regards

    I read somewhere that this feature was taken out which kinda ***** since I used it quite a bit. Anyway, it still works from the Trash icon and you can just drag it to whichever place you want it to go on the sidebar.

  • Call external audio file into timeline

    I'm creating training programs that will be translated into
    many languages. I create the text in external XML files, and then I
    use dynamic text frames to call in the text. The translators need
    only translate the XML Files and Flash is automatically updated.
    I would like to find a way where I can keep the audio files
    external to Flash, and have Flash call them. This way, once the
    translators have re-narrated the files in each language, I won't
    have to open each Flash movie and manually import the audio files.
    Is there a way to do this?

    When you import the MOV file, Audition will split it into a video stream and an associated audio file.  You can drag the audio file into a session without the video stream.

  • Can't drag audio and video together?

    I have numerous assets in this dvd project. I'm setting up a button to play 10 commercials in a row, a "play all" button.
    I'm editing the 10 commercials in what looks like a mini-video editor, with the video track and audio tracks shown.
    When I grab the video to change the order of my "play all", the audio doesn't move with it. For instance, I'm shifting commercial #3 to become commercial #1. In order for Audio from Commercial #3 to become audio for commercial #1, I have to shift audio #2-10 over to the right to create space for Audio Commercial #3 to insert there. VERY FRUSTRATING and painstaking. And if you accidentally clip a bit off the end or front of an audio portion (easy to do in these tiny little tracks), the sync' is off for the rest of the spots!
    I called Apple "tech support", and the rep' told me you can't drag audio and video together, and made up some excuse about 'this should already be done in Final Cut'. What? I'm just bringing in QuickTime files as assets. Why can't I lock audio and video together?
    Incidentally, Apple's Tech Support is useless you spend $199, or "$799 for a year". This cost was NOT made clear in the original purchase of the product. I'd prefer spending $1000 for a "PROFESSIONAL APPLICATION" and have good tech support included!
    G4 dual 1.25 gig - 1 gig ram   Mac OS X (10.3.8)   DVD Studio "Pro" 4

    Once in the track, A and V don't get moved together.
    I usually just rebuild the track order from scratch anyway because you can easily lose sync easilly when you are shuffling clip order.

  • Dragging a File Onto Fluxbox Toolbar

    My first post in the Arch Linux forums. Let me start out by saying that I find the community great. Arch Linux is indeed an amazing distribution. It took me quite some effort to get my laptop working but I am immensely satisfied with the results I have managed to obtain.
    I am using Fluxbox as a WIndow Manager and have configured it to suit my muscle memory from the Ubuntu days. One of the things that I have gotten used to from Ubuntu 12.04 is the ability to drag a file from a FIle Manager onto the taskbar and the corresponidng application to get automatically maximized so that I can drag the file onto it.
    One example: Drag an image file onto an open session of LibreOffice Impress and paste it onto a slide directly.
    Another: Drag a file to a GMail window tab on task bar and drop it as an attachment.
    Another: Drag subtitle file onto VLC
    I tried the following but could not achieve this behavior with Fluxbox.
    OnToolbar Mouse1:Maximize
    OnToolbar Mouse1:Click1
    Can someone guide me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.
    PS: Being new on the forums, I may be inadvertently breaking some forum norm, please do let me know if this is the case.

    I can't drag/drop files from one place to another, like across my desktop,i have to cut/copy paste them into another location.

    OS X will move the file if you hold the command key while you drag and drop.
    What happens if duplicate files are found during the move drag and drop. If you release the command key to answer the dialog box that appears, the file will be copied but not moved. If you continue to hold the command key as you click the Replace button, the move action will be completed.
    To move files in Finder first press Command+C to copy the selected files, then press Command+Option+V to move the copied files to the current folder.
