I am trying to edit my video in blender and I soon realized there is no audio. By looking at other questions similar to this I turned on the audio codec, made sure audio was on in user prefences, and put the video on AV-sync. I also checked sure to make sure the video did have audio. camera tracking setup As you can see in the image I did set up the audio codec, I'm just not sure if it is correct. To clarify, I need to get audio in my video but I can't. This is different from similar questions because they are concerning after render, mine is not.

I am using Blender version 2.77 on windows ten with a video converted from .Mov to .Mp4

Audio playback doesn't work in the Movie clip editor.
For Video editing you should use The Video Sequence Editor.

    $\begingroup$ I still get no sound even when I am in Video Editor. All I did was Add>clip>"My_Clip" $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 14, 2016 at 22:08
  • $\begingroup$ @Sammy that's strange, try again with add movie and make sure sound is enabled when you select your video file. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ that worked, thanks! But I am trying to chroma key in blender, which uses camera tracking and compositing. Now I have two seperate videos, one in video editing and one in compositing that are out of sync. Is there any way to get- audio in composting or chroma keying in video editing? $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 14, 2016 at 22:24
  • $\begingroup$ you do the tracking with no audio in the clip editor , then you do the compositing in the compositor with nodes, then you finally import everything to the video sequence editor. I hope i didn't confuse you too much. $\endgroup$
