Audio Track-shows 'error'? [SOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I happened to open a project that I had created a few years ago. In the Timeline, I notice there were 'Error' notations added to the beginning of almost all of my added music files. I had several versions of the same show and all of them had these 'Error' notations in the music files shown in the Timeline. Just before finishing this post, I double checked and took a look at the same projects and then the Error notations were not there anymore. The music in these projects played just find with and without these Error notations.

Can someone explain what caused these Error notations to be added to my music titles in the Timeline, and then disappear? Here is an example:

Gary,

This error occurs when the program cannot generate a waveform from an audio file. It might happen if an audio file was locked for reading (opened in an audio editor, for example). 

Even if you restart PTE AV Studio, these wrong waveforms stay cached and will be used again.

There are 2 solutions:

A. Rename affected audio files in Windows Explorer and replace audio files in the Project Options. It will force PTE to re-generate new audio waveforms.

B. Only for advanced users. Browse the folder:
C:\Users\YourProfileName\AppData\Local\WnSoft-WaveCache\
Delete all folders inside this folder.

Igor,

After closing and re-opening the files a bit later, the Error notation disappeared and all is back to normal. I've never seen this happen before. But I just had a thought. When I opened the PTE shows, I was also in the process of using Handbrake to encode a .TS file to MP4. My CPU was up to about 98%. Perhaps this had something to do with the generation of the waveforms with the Error notation.

Seems to be back too normal and was only temporary.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Gary,

Glad that you resolved this problem.

Video encoding utilizes all power of your computer. But normally it should not case such problems.
