    Beeping means the audio has to be rendered. Don't use MP3 files as FC doesn't like them. You can use QT or iTunes to convert your MP3s into 16-bit, 48k AIFF files and those will work in FC.

    It's not rendered. Double click the audio clip in the timeline and hit ⌘R

    'Nother audio problem in FCE

    I've rendered audio and video of a short music clip, originally in divx.
    Learned to resize it to get reasonably good image quality.
    Audio, though, seems fine (volume/equalization) EXCEPT for every few seconds, a tiny (1 or 2 frame) drop out. You can hear it, and you can see it on the wave form- nothing there for just an instant, every 2 or 3 seconds.
    Any ideas?
    Hope this is ok here- first post and all that.
