Hi! I am running Mojave with fcp 10.4.8. I have been importing mp4's fine from my camera (Sony A7iii), but just yesterday I am finding that imported videos do not have audio. When I click "show waveforms" it is just blank blue in the clip viewer and nothing changes when I drag to timeline...there is no sound or waveform. When I look in folder original media, optimized media and proxy media, the video clips in there all play audio just fine. What am I doing wrong?
There is no way to tell FCPX to not import the audio portion of a clip, so if you don't see or hear audio in the Browser, I'm going to bet something went wrong on the camera and it didn't record your audio. Verify what's on the camera card, I bet there's no audio there. Verify your camera settings, I'm sure you'll find the source of the issue there.
