I have been using PE10 for some while now. One thing that I have noticed is that when you put together clips there is a silent gap on the soundtrack which lasts about 3-4 frames. I use MTS files. When you add another clip to an existing one- if you go through the transition from one clip to the next frame by frame there is a short gap of 3/4 frames with no sound but still the picture. Currently I cut the next clip after I gone though it frame by frame until the first frame when the sound reappears. I them delete that small section and when the remaining clip automatically shifts and joins the previous clip I get an unbroken sound and picture transition. But I am curious as to why PE should introduce this silent gap in the first place. Any ideas?
What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what format and resolution is it?
Are you using the tools in Premiere Elements (ie, the capture utility, the Video Importer) to get the video from your camcorder?
It is a Panasonic GH2 recorded at 1080p MTS file. I import the entire folder onto my hard drive from the cameras media card. And use PE Get videos from files and folder to import the video into PE. I them drag the file to the timeline.
Thanks for the link. Is the solution to try using that tsMuxeR program or is there a better way of importing the clips into PE? Once I download the files/folders off the SD card from the camera I format the card ready for new recordings. So the only copies are on the main HD and backup external HD.
When I use PE I use its "Get video from files and folders" option to find the files which are located in the Stream folder.
