Replacing Audio Files
I'm noticing that my slide and animation cues are moving every time I replace the audio file that narrates my 25 slide PowerPoint presentation. The narration is a single MP3 file approximately 12 minutes long. When replacing, I first select the entire waveform by hitting ctrl-a, then clicking the import | single file button. The new MP3 is the exact same duration as the old one, yet all the cues shift to the left by about 10 seconds. I tried importing a few different ways, including modifying my selection before importing (so that it doesn't go all the way to the beginning) with no success.
I was hoping there would be a way to simply replace the audio file by replacing the file from a program like SoundBooth or any other audio editing software, and that Articulate would simply "pick it up" when I re-opened the PowerPoint. I suspect, however, that it splits the audio as soon as you hit "Save and Close" from Articulate's audio editor.
Could it be that my audio file is too long? (~12 mins)
In the future I'll try pre-splitting the track however, that may not work if there's a soundtrack playing under the entire piece.
Is it possible that a WAV or AIFF file would work better?
Thanks in advance for any help, I'm using PowerPoint 2003 and Articulate Presenter '09.
