Quick one - I've recorded footage using a Sony HDR-PJ810 in 1080p24 with 5.1ch surround audio (currently experimenting with different frame rates, resolutions and audio). If I import this into a 1080p24 preset in Premiere Elements 12 then I see only stereo audio with no obvious way to add a 5.1 channel.
If I import this into a 5.1ch surround preset (like 1080i 30 5.1) then I can see the audio across 6 channels but it's obviously having to unevenly spread 24 frames across 30 spaces in order to match the frame rates (skipping some of the slots which I suspect will cause playback artifacts).
Is there any way to get a 5.1ch surround audio track within a 1080p24 project? (I don't see it as a preset). Thanks!
What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 12 running on?
The answer is to create a 1080p24 5.1 Channel project preset.
Please see my work on the approach to doing this and related information. If necessary, I will write instructions specific to 1080p24 5.1 channel
Are you in a NTSC or PAL area? Reason for that question will be mentioned later.
