What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 10 running on?
With your particular choice of wmv export, do you have the option to alter the bitrate of the audio?
Do have alternative choice for the export?
Hi ATR, thanks for responding
> Windows 7 Home Premium
> I just saved as QuickTime, and I get the same problem: a noticeable lag on the audio.
> As I save to WMV, I have the following audio settings:
Encoding Passes: One or Two
Bitrate Mode: Constant, Variable Constrained, Variable Unconstrained
Basic Audio Settings:
Codec: Voice 9, 9.2 Lossless, 9.2, 10 Professional
Audio Format: large selection of A kbps, B kHz, C channel and D bit VBR
Peak Audio Bitrate: 441 to 10000 sliding scale
Peak Audio Buffer Size: 0.01 to 10 sliding scale
I think that what you posted is what you are seeing rather what has been set by you or the program.
After this round of questions, I will post the specific settings that I would like to see for your wmv export.
1. What are the properties of what you are putting on that Premiere Elements 10 Timeline? I need the following from a video audio properties readout for your source video or from knowing the brand/model/settings of the camera use to record the video:
interlaced or progressive
pixel aspect ratio
2. What are you setting as the project.preset? In that regard, what does it show under Edit Menu/Project Settings/General and its Editing Mode, Timebase, Frame Size, and anything else that might help (grayed out or not).
From that I will suggest a wmv export, hopefully that will play back with audio in sync.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Many thanks ATR.
I have just realised, through trial and error, that the problem is with Windows Media Player.
If I play the exported files through other media players I have no problem.
Therefore it's Windows Media Player that is providing the lag.
Thanks for the good news. Great to hear problem resolved. Good work.
Unfortunately, the two most popular, and often-used media players, WMP, and Apple's QuickTime Player, are two of the worst. Each has issues, and there are often no fixes for them.
The most often suggested "replacements" are VLC Player, MediaPlayer Classic HC, and GOM Player - all free.
Not really sure why the "big boys" can't offer a perfect media player, but neither seems inclined - or maybe they are shooting for something else?
