Default Importing audio from mp4 video slow

Hi All

Today I imported audio from a mp4 video it took 7min and 40s.
When importing from the converted DNxHD it took 19 seconds.

The length of the video is 57min.

Has anyone else experienced this?

All the best
Benny

When I run into that I import just the video, strip the audio from the MP4 using the free www.shutterencoder.com and import that audio to my timeline.

Thanks Weed,

But you also experienced this slow import time?

Yes, and sometimes the audio import would fail - or take so long for the green line to move I thought it failed. Shutter Encoder is capable of so much, that it's a must have, especially since it's free
