I would sure appreciate your help. I have been using Adobe Premiere 6, then 6.5 for years as a hobby. I am a big Premiere fan. Around November 2011, I upgraded to CS5.5.
I was working on a video with my son recently. We were using MPEG4 video from his digital camera. I don't ever remember having this problem.
The video imported fine. The problem is the audio did not show up in the audio track. When the video track was played, the audio played, but did
not show. Out of curiosity I opened Premiere Elements to see if the audio track would show separately from the video track and it did.
Is there something I can do so that the audio track will show up in CS5.5?
Thank you for your time and help.
Thanks Harm. It was on Track 7.
I am working on a 15 inch screen. Now that I know where the audio track is, I would like to move it closer to the Video 1 track. I tried to move it and it doesn't move. Would you please share what I need to do to move the audio track?
There are three kind of audio tracks, stereo, mono and 5.1. Mono can only be placed in a mono track, stereo only in a stereo track and 5.1 only in a 5.1 track. By default a new sequence has three stereo tracks, so when you enter mono material, a new mono track is created in track 4.
In your case you probably have 6 audio tracks of one kind and the 'lost' one is another kind of track and that is the reason it ends up in track 7. You can of course delete empty audio tracks, which will cause track 7 to move up.
Thank you again. After I made the post, I went back to my other machine and opened 6.5 to make sure that the audio tracks did move "at will." Well, they do. But now I understand what is going on in CS 5.5.
BTW, this is much improved in Premiere Pro CS6.
