AS audio with Pulse in linux.

Post by rylleman » Wed Jan 28, 2009 10:45 pm

First this post was intended to be a comment to the Audio functions on Linux post in the FAQ-section but only moderators are allowed to post there.

Pulse audio is the new sound server for linux and many distros use it as default server nowadays.
Anime Studio uses an old sound device called OSS, and may not work with Pulse audio.

If you can't hear any audio from your AS-project and nothing in the linux audio-thread worked then try to start AS with a padsp-suffix; in a terminal run "padsp /path/to/anime/studio/AnimeStudioPro".
If it works and AS now plays audio you can add padsp to your AS-starter and it will start with this option every time.

Padsp sends the OSS-audio through the Pulse server so you can hear it.

Thanks for the pointer.

The other thing you can do is to edit the AnimeStudioPro startup script. Go down to line 30 and change:

Code: Select all

        $MOHO_LOCATION $*

Code: Select all

        padsp $MOHO_LOCATION $*

This way you won't have to type it each time.
