v2.31b2 audio is distorted in render

Sat Apr 17, 2021 6:17 pm

I started a project in the new beta that worked fine until suddenly it has started rendering the music distorted with some noticeable glitches in the stereo field and it's quite frankly unusably for a music video, it's like heavy old MP3 distortion.

My project use five wave files with four of them muted and used as triggers and the last file is a normal 16bit 44khz WAV file which is being played.

Ok, the only way I can check this is if you post a link to let me download the exact wav file that has the problem.

Here's the first 20 seconds where you can hear the render is drenched in some kind of noise:

I really believe this distortion wasn't there when I started the project, i believe it just appeared suddenly, maybe it could have started when I added the extra audio tracks that are muted and only used as triggers?

Can you make it so that Magic export uncompressed audio or the original sound that was imported into Magic?

Ok, I will take a look.

If you review the 2.31 features (viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2394) you will see it says: Movie exporting now uses uncompressed (CD-quality) audio in all .mov formats.

mp4's do not support uncompressed audio.

Okay. I just tried export with the Motion JPEG codec and it works/sounds fine it just takes longer and the file-size is a massive 4.5GB vs 400MB with the x264 codec.
