I have tried exporting a video several times to Youtube directly and also to my computer; so I could later upload it to Youtube. I kept the audio from the original video clips and also added in a song from Itunes. I have no problem hearing the audio from both the video and audio track within Elements 11. However, when I try to share the video on Youtube, or save it on my computer in video form, the audio is missing or there is just a clicking/buzzing noise. I have attemped to transfer the audio to a different audio track (such as from audio 1 to audio 2), but when I try to export it, the audio is still missing. I have been working on this for several hours now and am getting very frustrated. Any help?
Did you place the iTunes file onto either the Fixed Narration, or Soundtrack Audio Track? If so, as a test, Move the Audio from whichever of those you chose, and place it/them onto a free "regular" Audio Track, such as Audio 2. Does that get the Audio into your YouTube file?
Yep, I have tried audio 1 and audio 2. I now just downloaded the same song from amazon mp3 and imported it into my PE 11 project. When I tried to save it to my computer as and Adobe Flash Video the audio was again missing but there was a buzzing sound present.
OK, MP3's can cause issues. Take a look at this article: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4146900#4146900
Apparently, we have ruled out the Fixed Audio Tracks: Soundtrack and Narration, but I would still use the converted MP3's on a "regular" Audio Track, just to keep things easy, and not to introduce any potential issues with those two Tracks.
Good luck, and thank you for reporting.
I burned the song to a cd and imported the song from the cd to the PE 11 project. I am attempting to save the project to my computer as an Adobe Flash Video again. Hopefully the audio will come with it this time.
Again the audio track is missing, but there is a buzzing/clicking sound. The sound works perfectly within the project, but when I save it as a Flash Video or upload it to Youtube, the audio is always missing or sometimes there is a buzzing/clicking sound. How have others added in music files into their PE 11 projects?
It is a copyright issue!! Even though I purchased the original song, gave credit to the maker, producer, seller, claimed that no copyright issues were intended, and even sugested itunes as a place to purchase the song, I am still unable to use the song. I just tested to project with one of the small demo sounds and the audio transfered perfectly to the Flash Video. If PE 11 really forces you to purchase all music through them, then this is a horrible system.
I am unaware of any Adobe use of DRM, though it would not be unheard of, such as with Vimeo, YouTube, etc.. DRM is most often a form of Copy Protection, invoked by the delivery source, iTunes in this case.
Still, can you use that iTunes workaround, mentioned above?
I just tried a work around this issue by burning a blank cd off of another computer. I inserted the cd into the computer I have my PE 11 project saved on and the songs were not recognized by the comp and could not find the info on the internet. I was pretty excited to see this as there should not be any copyright issues recognized by PE 11. I took a song off the burned CD and put it into my project. I then chose to export the project to my desktop as a Flash Video. After it was completed, I opened the new file, and the audio is just a buzzing sound again. This causes me to believe that Adobe Premiere Elements 11 does not allow you to use any audio file that is not from Adobe Premiere Elements 11. Has anyone on this forum used an audio source on APE 11 that didn't come from Adobe?
OK, you have an Audio CD w/ the CDA format. That will not be recognized natively. Now, rip that CDA with an audio-editing program, like Adobe Audition, or the great, free Audacity, and Save_As a PCM/WAV @ 48KHz 16-bit, and THAT file WILL be recognized, and will Import perfectly.
You are almost there, good luck,
