Q&A: What kinds of audio files work in After Effects CS4?

Question by Dev: What kinds of audio files work in After Effects CS4?
I have tried adding an MP3 file to the ad I have made for my friend, but no sound comes out when I render it. Also, when I press audio preview, the sound doesn’t come out either. Do MP3 files work with CS4? Or do I have to use another type of file.

Answer:

Answer by Daniel O

Adobe Sound Document (ASND; multi-track files imported as merged single track)

Audio Interchange File Format (AIF, AIFF)
MP3 (MP3, MPEG, MPG, MPA, MPE)

How do I get my brush to work after layering/masking my photo? I use Photoshop 7.0.1?

Question by Incognito: How do I get my brush to work after layering/masking my photo? I use Photoshop 7.0.1?
After I’ve created my mask and hit the b-key for brush to start brushing over my photo to paint in changes to second (top) photo copy nothing happens. I hit the x-key and try again but nothing is happening. These instructions I rec’vd via email from a Photoshop CS user so maybe the x-key is the wrong one. If I could just get my brush to work on my mask I can then experiment with what I am trying to achieve.

Answer by elapse
Open the photo.
If you don’t have the layers palette open press F7 or click window/layers from the drop down menu.

Then if your on a windows, alt+double click the layer (background layer should be the only layer so far) If your on a mac, option+ double click on that background layer.

This should remove the lock from that layer.

Then at the bottom of the layers palette click the little grey square that has the white circle in it. This should add a mask the the current layer.

Then press (D) this is to set the default foreground and background colors to black and white if they are not already.

Then press (B) to get your brush. Then click the mask(white square that is next to the layer in the layers palette.)

press (X) to switch foreground and background colors.
(make sure that this sets your foreground color to black)

Then with that mask selected, paint on the layer.

The painted selection should disappear revealing the checkerboard transparency.

Hope that helps.

There shouldn’t be any problem, especially when you save the file and check the “Maximize Compatibility” checkbox.

also, some very good answers to your question on the following 2 threads:

I highlight the following of them as well, quote:
“If you’re saving as a .psd you can make sure that your file is compatible. Go to Edit->Preferences->File handling and change the box to ‘Always’.”

If you want to duplicate a layer from one image to another you can still select the layer and drag it to the new one or use the duplicate layer option in the drop down menu at the top of the layers palette.

And if so, where can I get free brushes? Thanks a bunch!!

Best answer:

Answer by Mujer Alta
Yes, unfortunately, Photoshop brushes do work in Elements;-) And it’s really easy to get addicted to collecting brushes. There are a gazillion sites that offer free brushes. So google Photoshop Brushes and you’ll be spending hours clicking, looking and downloading.

Here are a couple of my favorites:
