    No sound in PE 11 for video recorded in "focus" mic setup

    bchewsy

      I just purchased a Panasonic X900M camcorder and Adobe Premiere Elements 11.  The Panasonic X900M allows the user to setup the internal microphone in various ways.  The

      default setting is "surround" which records the sound in 5.1 channel surround.  Another setting is "focus" which records the sound in front more clearly.  When I add a video

      clip recorded in "surround" into a PE 11 project, the audio works fine.  But if I add a video clip recorded in "focus" into a PE 11 project, there is no audio.  Both clips are recorded in an identical manner (fully automatic mode, 1080/60p resolution) except for the mic setup.  Also, both video clips play fine (with audio) in Elements Organizer (i.e., double-click on the clip) and Windows Media Player.  The audio portion of the file properties for both files are identical as shown

      below:
      Bit rate:  256kbps
      Channels:  2 (stereo)
      Audio sample rate: 48kHz
      Why does PE 11 not play sound for the clip recorded with a mic setup of "focus"?
