I'm not sure what "conforming" is but several hours went by with the clips loaded.
>not sure what "conforming" is
That is why I provided a link... for you to click and learn
It's now more than one file type in more than one project and I've been using Premiere Elements 10 since it came out without having this problem. I see no status bar or indication conforming is happening. When the project is saved, left sitting, re-loaded, etc, then problem persists. I don't see how it could be still trying to conform.
Premiere Elements uses 0 dB to indicate the volume level of the original recording. It does not mean zero sound. When you adjust Volume in Premiere Elements, you set the Volume higher or lower than the original sound.
Have you gone to Edit Menu/Preferences/Audio Hardware/and clicked on ASIO button to check the settings and to assure that Input and Output options are enabled in that area?
Since you did start a new project and found the same, we will not go there.
Before thinking about an uninstall/reinstall, we could try deleting the Premiere Elements settings file (aka preferences). For Premiere Elements 10 on Windows 7 (presumed 64 bit), the path is
Local Disk C
and in the 10.0 Folder is the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file that you delete. If that does not work, then you delete the whole 10.0 Folder that the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file exists in.
In order to see this path, Folder Option Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives needs to be active.
As a side experiment, you could go to Libraries/Documents/Adobe/Premiere Elements/10.0 and in delete the conformed audio files in the Media Cache Files Folder there. After they are deleted, the program will generate new conformed audio files when and if needed. The thought is that in the generation of the new files, the problem may be resolved if those files are at the core of the matter.
Please review and then let us know the results.
We will be watching for further developments.
It was a problem with conformation. I deleted all the temp files I could and moved some folders around then I got the "conforming" progress bar and when it was done everything was fine.
Thank you so much for the help!!
Starting to edit, before the Imported files have been fully Conformed, is a main cause for loss of Audio, or truncated Audio.
Good luck, and glad that you got to the cause, and know the fix.
Thanks for the great news of your success resolving the audio issue. Great job.
Was it the conformed audio files in the Media Cache Files Folder that you deleted as I suggested?
Or were other files involved.
From what you wrote it sounded like the target was those files in the Media Cache Files Folder.
Continued success. We are very pleased that you are moving forward with your Premiere Elements projects.
