Premiere Elements 8  - Audio Unsyncronized on Share/Export

Feb 18, 2013 9:31 PM

Tags: #audio #elements #8 #unsynchronize #desync

Some reason when I export my video, the first 20 seconds are perfectly fine, but then there's one part where the audio for the remainder of my video becomes unsyncronized. This doesn't make any sense though, because the audio and video are linked together, so I couldn't have slightly dragged it to unsync it with the video. Even worse, if I play the video in Premiere, the audio is perfectly synced together. This only seems to happen for the audio that's linked to my video, and not the narration.


I've tried exporting to different formats, but every format has the same result; desynced audio. Any help is appreciated.

    What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what format and resolution is it? How did you get the video from your camcorder to your computer?


    What exact Share option did you choose when you output your video?


    Do you have the same synch issues if you use Share/Computer/WMV (Windows Media) using the Cable Modem output preset?

    Sorry. I can't help you with non-camcorder footage.


    AVI files can use any of thousands of codecs, very few of which are fully supported in Premiere Elements.


    If you can identify the codec, resolution and frame rate by opening the files in a program like G Spot Codec or MediaInfo might help. But if the codec is one of those that the program doesn't support well, there is just no way to predict how it will behave.

    As Steve says, AVI that is not from a camera may cause problems... but, exactly what is inside the file?


    Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing


    For PC or

    For Mac

    Xvid (and it's cousing Divx) are playback codecs, not meant to be edited... and, mostly they don't edit well, if at all


    To edit a divx/xvid file, or convert to a format that will edit in Premiere
