So whenever I import my footage, there's no audio. If I watch the same video on a different platform audio is there, and if I import footage from a different camera, there's audio, so what could be the problem and how can I fix it?
The problem video could be AVCHD video which uses Dolby Digital audio. Express does not support DD audio without the purchase of the premium formats expansion pack.
It was shot in AVCHD. Is there a free way to reformat the audio? I"m fourteen, trying to add behind the scenes to my video. I mean, I guess I could use Wondershare Filmora instead if I had to, but then it'd have an awful watermark on it.
You can transcode the media to a basic MP4 file with AVC video and AAC audio which Hitfilm will support. You can use the free Handbrake utility program. Here is a thread with some information for transcode settings which will give the best possible edit performance from AVC video in Hitfilm. The transcoded files should be approximately the same size as the source depending on exact CRF setting used.
You can also transcode to Cineform which will give better edit performance depending on your specific PC. The files will be 3-5 times larger. You can use the free VirtualDub2 utility program to do this transcode.
