>audio out of sync
Does that cell phone use a Variable Frame Rate for recording?
Tom G. Peterson
The orientation of your cell phone video is not likely to be the cause of your audio out of sync associated with playback of your cell phone video in Premiere Elements. Two separate matters.
For the video orientation either
a. change the way you are holding your cell phone when you use it to take pictures and/or videos
b. use Premiere Elements 12 Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effects Palette/Motion Panel expanded and its Rotation feature to rotate the video on the Timeline (alternatively, you can right click the clip on the Timeline and select either Rotate 90 Left or Rotate 90 Right)
As for your audio out of sync for the cell phone video
a. the project preset should be set to match the properties of your source media and you should be viewing/listening to the playback of the Timeline rendered video in the Edit area monitor and you are not doing that...
b. the video was recorded with a variable rather than constant frame rate....if all else fails, you take your video, before import into Premiere Elements, into a program like HandBrake and change the variable to a constant frame rate.
Please review and consider and then we can decide what next. At that time, I will fine tune any details of the above that need fine tuning.
This is all great stuff to try. All i know is it's 1920x1080 (1080p HD) (60
fps) Perhaps the 60 fps? - The clips were out of sync without rotating in
Premiere. I should try something other than my phone.
Thanks! - I will keep on experimenting.

Set up your Premiere Elements 12 project....
1. Open program to the Expert workspace and go immediately to File Menu/New/Project and Change Settings. In Change Settings, change the project preset to
Before you leave that area, in the last dialog there (new project dialog), make sure that you have a check mark next to "Force Selected Project Setting On This Project".
2. Then back in the Expert workspace, use Add Media/Files and Folders to get your video into Project Assets. And, from Project Assets, drag the video to the Timeline. Do you see an orange line over the Timeline content? If so, press the Render button. That will get you the best possible preview. You will know that the render is done when the orange line turns green.
3. Now, when you press the Play button of the Edit area monitor or hit the spacebar, is the audio out of sync in the playback? If so, on we go to HandBrake.
Note: Right click the thumbnail for the video in Project Assets, select Properties, and see what it shows for frame rate.
HandBrake settings for the variable to constant frame rate change will be posted if you need them.
It is variable frame rate! - I will post this at the community in case
anyone else has this happen. I am actually happy about this. I have other
video cameras and phones are for talking! . . . right?
I might try to fix this with the HandBrake program so i do not have to
re-record my demo video.
The re-render in Handbrake worked!
Thank You Very Much!

Wonderful news. Glad that worked for you. You did a quick and great job.
I have no problems with my iPod touch 4th generation and borrowed iPhone 5 video. Both use a variable frame rate, and they work well with my Premiere Elements Windows. But there have been several reports where the out of sync audio associated with variable frame rate needs conversion from variable to constant frame rate to work in Premiere Elements.
Your follow up was much appreciated.
No problem and Thanks again!
