You might experience issues with that in Elements if the audio recorded is set to PCM. I have the Sony HXR-NX3 and PCM audio plays fine in Premiere Pro. You might try switching the camcorder to record audio in Dolby Digital. You can try Sony CMU, but I wouldn't buy/try those other two.
From a Premiere Elements perspective...
Please take a look at the blog post PE12: Seamless File Merging Before Import"
It uses Command Prompt to get the job done.
It may be on the primitive side when it comes to the converter mentioned, but it might just take care of the audio issues and the files merging if those are the target concerns?
Please let us know if you decide to try the approach on a mini test run basis.
Thank you. After I submitted my post I tried copying the files to my PC
then loading into PE10 and the sound is working. I think I will try Dolby
Digital setting to see if it makes any difference. I'm in the process of
deciding which make/model of camcorder I am going to purchase so this
weekend I rented the Sony HXR-NX3 and the Canon XA20. I have done two
weddings with the Canon HF-G30 and HF-G20 and was happy with the results
(mostly). I'm trying to determine if the NX3 with the three sensors will
handle color and low-light better as I anticipate all types of lighting
issues as I go from venue to venue.
Have you noticed any issues during editing with lost frames due to 2g limit
on files or cross-over files during relay recording?
