Please clarify. Where are you creating this slideshow - Elements Organizer Slideshow Editor or just in the Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 Timeline workspace? If Elements Organizer Slideshow Editor, what are you using as the Output option?
What is the source of your audio? Is it a music file or audio linked to video? If music, are you working with iTunes music?
Do you have the 9.0.1 Update installed?
Let us start here and then, based on your reply, decide what next.
I created the show in PSE Organizer and also in Premiere with same incomplete result, so let's focus just on the Organizer. I use the latest update of PSE 9.0.3. The show plays perfectly in the Organizer edit. Transferring it to Premiere for dvd burn, converts it first to a WMV. Audio is MP3.
Thanks for your willingness to help. This is very frustrating.
That Photoshop Elements 9.0.3 Update has generally been discouraged by the Photoshop Elements gurus. But, I am not going to factor that into this at this point.
This is what I would ask you to look at in the Elements Organizer 9 accessed from the Photoshop Elements 9 or Premiere Elements 9.
a. Create your slideshow in the Elements Organizer 9/Create/Slideshow/Slideshow Editor. Then use the Output option of Edit with Premiere Elements.
From your description, you are probably using the Output Option of Burn to Disc DVD which will take your slideshow directly in the Disc Menu section of Premiere Elements 9. The preferred transfer of the Elements Organizer 9 slideshow to Premiere Elements 9 Editor is by the non wmv route "Edit with Premiere Elements" not the wmv route of Burn to Disc DVD.
Let us explore if any of the above is involved in your issue and then we will decide what next if necessary.
THANKS so much! At your suggestion, I selected Output, Burn to disc, DVD. A window displayed requiring Save as *.wmv. OK, saved reluctantly. Opens automatically in Premier. Preview has no audio.
Instead of Burn to Disc, I selected Edit in Premiere. The preview had the video and audio. Burn option requested save as wmv. BUT selecting the Share tab, then disc, dvd, burn proceeded smoothly and the consequent dvd actually contains both audio and video. Yea!
It shouldn't be so inconsistent and hard, but I would never have succeeded without you help.
Great, great news. Thanks for the follow through on the suggestion. Great job.
Best wishes as you move forward with your Premiere Elements projects.
