BUG: Render Required Audio
I'm currently working on a one-camera, documentary show and have had the same issue come up over and over again when I go export my final sequence. I have to do several versions of my final output (h264, ProRes, both with graphics and without) and sometimes, not always, I'll have a "Render Required Audio" box that comes up before my export begins.
This can take up to 2 hours - but other exports I'll set, with same sequence settings, same camera capturing the video, will export quickly. What is going on? I'm not using any multi-cam audio - which is what I've been directed to when others reported this problem.
