As well as the general information above, how are you importing the DVD?
I am using Premiere Elements 12, on Windows 8, trying to keep it a simple a possible, using the "ADD MEDIA" feature. When the media is in the editor I go to Publish and Share / COMPUTER / AVI.
If you have Premiere Elements 12 on Windows 8 and you want to rip VOBs from the DVD-VIDEO to export subsequently to DV AVI, here are the details....
1. Do you have DVD-VIDEO standard or widescreen? Set the Premiere Elements 12 project preset manually.
File Menu/New/Project. Set the project preset to NTSC or PAL DV Standard or NTSC or PAL DV Widescreen depending on what you have.
Before you exit the new project dialog, make sure that you have a check mark next to Force Selected Project Setting on this Project.
2. In the Premiere Elements workspace, use Add Media/DVD camera or computer drive/Video Importer to get the VOBs (only the ones in the series VTS_01_1.VOB. Set to a folder in the Save In: location. Check mark next to Insert in Timeline. Hit Get Media.
3. If you have an orange line OVER the Timeline content, press the Enter key to get the best possible preview of what you have on that Timeline.
If after all that, the audio is out of sync, then use the Command Prompt method to get the individual VOBs into a single file with all the VOBs seamlessly merged. This worked nicely for a recent user here. See details in my blog post how to for the Command Prompt way.
Please do not hesitate to ask if you need clarification on anything that I have written.
Depending on your results, more information may be requested about the specific properties of what you have on that DVD disc.
