I am using Premiere Elements 10 and have a project consisting mainly of one large video file including a stereo audio track. When sharing the project (tried as DVD and webDVD) the right channel is empty. The export audio settings are configured for Stereo where appropriate.
Oddly enough, the clip configured to loop as the DVD menu background is Stereo...
Can someone please point me at what is wrong?
Thanks in advance!
How do you know the right channel is empty? Can you see it on a waveform of the video?
If not, try playing the DVD on another device, such as your computer, and see if it makes a difference. It could be an issue with the playback of a home-burned DVD on your DVD player.
I agree with Steve, and would troubleshoot things in this order:
As the Master Audio Track is stereo/2-channel, loosing one channel is very odd.
Thanks Steve and Bill,
coming back to both of you, I have the same error on another machine, for both the DVD and the WebDVD.
I dragged several of the output files into audacity, which shows the empty channel.
When I look at the waveform in PrE I can see a right and left channel.
hm... just fiddling around and found the Audio Mixer... which has my audio track's balance pulled to 100% left
that should be it... will see after rendering
*inserting default dumb user reply* "I do not recall changing this setting, I see it for the first time"
Strange - my audio mixer was also 100% to the left, even though I would swear that I'd never touched og even seen it before.
Anyway, even though I now put it to the centre, I still have the sound coming only from the left channel in the exported video. Replaying it within PrE works fine with 2-channel sound.
