    So I’m making an essay film with a variety of different files that I’m trying to transcode to ProRes Proxy using MPEG Streamclip. However, I’m having issues with dropped audio.

    The files play fine in FLC, but not in MPEG preview, nor do they play after they’ve been transcoded.

    I have Perian, the latest version of DIVX, and the latest beta version of MPEGStreamclip for Mac.

    Here’s an example of a problem file:
    Film type: .AVI
    Tracks: 1V, 2A
    Vid Rate: 25 fps
    Compressor: Xvid (Perian)
    Audio Rate: 48 KHz
    Audio Format: 32-bit Floating Point

    Is there an easy way to just grab the audio and add it back to the video file in Final Cut? Is there better program I could be using for transcoding? Are there codecs I could download to make this work?

    Thanks for your time,

    No one? I tried looking through some other threads first and tried as many relevant solutions as I could find (Perian, different versions of streamclip, downloading the Divx codec directl) I’m still stumped.

    AVI is a tricky beast…and it always depends on the codec contained within. I’ve had to fight many an AVI with all sorts of converters. I have Squeeze, Compressor, MPEG STREAMCLIP, EditReady, Media Encoder. Might try Media Encoder or Premiere Pro, since it is reputed to handle everything. See what that can do.
