I have narration on the audio track of my video. On track 4 audio I have some quiet background music. Then partway through the video I want to also bring in some nature sounds. I tried to do this by putting these sounds on track 2 audio but as soon as the play head gets to this point the music on track 4 audio stops...it is blocked by the nature sounds on track 2.

Is it possible to have 3 audio channels playing simultaneously? If so, I must be doing something wrong.

Thanks for any suggestions... Regards,
Dan

Any chance you are previewing the timeline in clip mode vs movie mode? Use Pg Down on keyboard to get to movie mode priot to timeline playback preview and see if playback is then correct as a mix of all audio tracks.

No, I don't think so because the audio won't play in the preview window whether I click on it in the Media Room or in the timeline. Must be something about the audio format, because I used HandBrake to convert the clip from MTS to MP4 and it plays fine. See the attached MedioInfo image for the parameters of the one that wouldn't play. Is there something in there that PD doesn't do well with?

That now is useful information.

The source clip has DD, see this https://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/84986.page#351806

Thanks...I'll try the fix! It's interesting that in my case, it not only didn't play the audio file with DD on track 2 but it also blocked the music on track 4.
