    Importing music

      How do I import music from my music files on my computer to my video in Adobe Premiere?

          What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?

          Where is your music coming from (iTunes?), and what is the file extension .mp3, .wav, or other?

           

          In the absence of that information I will generalize...you would import music which Premiere Elements supports and which is unprotected, using the program's Add Media/Files and Folders/Project Assets from where you drag the file to one of the audio tracks (Audio 1, 2.....or Soundtrack). When you do the import, if you see a progress bar with audio conforming activity in the bottom right of the workspace, let that conforming complete before you move forward in the project.

           

          We will be watching for further details so that we can fine tune our reply.

           

          Thanks.

            Thank you for your response.  We have Adobe Premiere Elements 12  and we have Windows 7.  The Music is coming from iTunes (saved on a thumb drive) and is MPEG-4Audio. 

             

            Thank you again for your help.

              Thanks for the reply.

               

              Using iTunes, convert your music to .wav files. Then import the .wav version into Premiere Elements 12 with its Add Media/Files and Folders/Project Assets from where you drag the file to the Expert workspace Timeline.

               

              In iTunes...

              1. Import your music into iTunes "Songs", File Menu/Add File to Library

              2. Go to Edit Menu/Preferences/General Preferences Dialog, and there click on the Import Settings tab.

              3. In the Import Settings dialog, set "Import Using" to "WAV Encoder". OK out of there.

              4. Back in the iTunes "Songs" workspace, right click your music file in the list and select Create WAV Version.

               

              Then, right click the created WAV version there and select Copy. And, then paste the file to computer desktop or another appropriate hard drive location.

               

              Please review and consider, and then let us know if that worked for you.

               

              Thank you.
