First, make sure you have the latest version of Quicktime from Apple.com.
Then, make sure you use Premiere Elements' Add Media/From Flip or Camera to get the video from your camcorder to your computer. (The video will come in in an .mts format.)
Finally, make sure that your video is the first clip used on your timeline. This is important because the program uses the first clip on the timeline to determine its project settings. (You can check to make sure the project settings match your video format by looking at them listed under the Edit menu.)
There are a number of major limitations to the trial version, and it's possible that 1080p is one not available in it. But that shouldn't affect whether or not you hear the audio.
Still does not work... video does not have any audio. I plug the SDcard in my PC and use Elements to upload. Do I need to open a support case? can you do that with the trial version. But I wont purchase it if it wont play audio on my 1080p AVCHD files.
Uploading files into windows (win7-64bit) with windows tools - all video and audio works great. I want to use Elements because I have a 20,000 digital pic library being managed by Eleements 8.
When you plug in the SD card, try this test:
Copy the full folder structure from that SD card, including all files in that folder structure, to the computer's HDD (Hard Disc Drive). Then use Add Media to Import the media files within the folder structure. Be sure to let PrE 11 fully Conform and Index those files - depending on the speed of your computer and the size of the files, this might take a moment, or two - be patient. Does the Audio now play?

Good luck, and please let us know if that gets your Audio into the Project.
Are you dealing with a PAL or NTSC project. For now I will assume NTSC.
As Hunt has suggested, transfer your video from the camera memory card to a computer hard drive location.
Using Premiere Elements 11 Windows Add Media, import the video file into the opened new project to get it into Project Assets and from there dragged to the Timeline Expert view. Then go to Edit Menu/Project Setting and determine if the project settings reflect the properties of your 1080p60 footage.
In the Premiere Elements workspace, do you see waves in Audio 1 content? If so, go to Edit Menu/Preferences/Audio Hardware and ASIO settings to assure that everything that needs to be enabled is enabled.
If the situation remains the same, waves in the Audio 1 content, but no sound at playback of the Timeline in the Edit Mode monitor, then try deleting the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file
Local Disk C
and in the 11.0 Folder is the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file that you delete.
Make sure that you are working with Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives active.
Please let us know if any of the above helped or whether the situation remains the same for your Panasonic footage in Premiere Elements 11 tryout, that is, video displayed but no audio heard and/or seen on Audio 1.
By the way, you are in the Expert view (not Quick view)?
Didnt work - note I am using Photoshop Elements 11. Im not using Premeire Elements 11. I dont see "Add media" but see on the File menu / Get Photos and Videos /
ok - found the "Add Media" wizard you stick in the sd card and tell Adobe elements to upload. FYI - when I change the camera video setting to capture video via MP4 as opposed to AVCHD - I get sound then. AVCHD is suppose to be best for HDTV viewing.
From Hunt's post #3, that appears to be "this is just a test" with the desired end result (however you do it) being your files on the computer hard drive.
Once there he is asking you to see if you can import them into Premiere Elements 11 with Premiere Elements 11's Add Media/Files and Folders to get them into Project Assets. From Project Assets you drag the file(s) to the Timeline Expert view.
Keep in mind that when Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11 are on the same computer, they share the same Elements Organzier (catalog).
Please check out what you were doing in this regard using your Photoshop Elements 11...Please refer to...
Photoshop Elements 11 Elements Organizer
File Menu/Get Photos and Videos
From Camera or Card Reader
Elements Organizer - Photo Downloader
Advanced dialog should provide a field for you to designate you hard drive save location
Then, from that hard drive location where it appears that Hunt wants you to be, try to import those media into Premiere Elements 11 with its Add Media/Project Assets - to Timeline Expert view.
That is my read on this matter. As far as I know Hunt is preparing for travel so I took the liberty to answer here. Please review and consider what I have written.
