I'm taking my projects out of Final Cut Pro X and sending them to Compressor 4.  No matter what settings I choose, I can't get audio out of my compressed files.  I have sound in the preview window, I have audio settings in the inspector (they won't highlight so I can't touch them though).  This should be more simple than it appears right?  It's Compressor 4.0.6.

Compressor, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    What kind of output files (format) are you trying to make – working off which presets – and for what intended use?

    A couple of more questions if I could:


    Are you working with an H.264 sequence in FCP?


    If you mark a short range in your timeline and export that as a master file, do you have sound if played in QT Player?


    In Compressor, what h.264 preset did you use – or which one served as the basis for a custom preset? (There are several ways to build a custom preset in Compressor.)


    In the Video Settings tab, is audio enabled?


    Could you post a screen shot of your summary pane from the Inspector?


    Guess that's more than a couple.
