Are you exporting from Premiere to a file, then importing that to Encore? Or are you dynamic linking PR sequences into Encore?
I am Dynamic Linking.
I think I totally missed it. I now think you have one sequence in Premiere with 8 clips there. You dynamic link that sequence to Encore. All audio is okay, except for the section from clip 7. Right?
What kind of footage in Premiere and what sequence setting? Any effects applied in Premiere?
To troubleshoot, I would export only that clip 7 area, import that file to Encore, and check the audio.
You are correct, I have 8 clips in Premiere. I dynamic link that sequence to Encore, and all audio is okay except from clip 7.
There are no effecs applied, they are all AVCHD Video (m2t) that were produced in Premiere Elements 11.
When I import JUST clip 7 into Encore and preview it, the audio plays fine. So for some reason, in my sequence/timeline, Encore is deciding to mute or not process the audio for the entire clip 7, yet plays it for 6 and 8.
I have tried re-Dynamic-Linking the sequence to an entirely new Encore project, and it still does it.
Here's an odd note- I went through Premiere Elements 11 and turned all 8 clips into one big m2t file, whose audio played fine in Elements and Windows Media Player, and when I imported it into Encore, the audio failed in the exact same spot, even though Clip 7's Audio plays just fine when imported solo as an Asset into Encore.
I have worked around this by importing everything as individual Assets/Timelines, but now I am for some reason not able to fit as much footage onto my disc. This is all very aggravating and I am making it work for now but would like to figure out the root of this problem or determine if it is some unconquerable design flaw by Adobe.
Did you have the transcode settings on "automatic" when you were using dynamic link?
If so, all it means is you used a little higher datarate when you exported the files than Encore used. You can use trial and error, or use a bitrate calculator to determine your best datarate to fill the disk.
