What version of Premiere Elements and on what computer operating system is it running?
Please clarify your question. Do you mean
1. That you have reopened a saved closed project and have found that you have a media - project connection issue. In this situation, you would be expected to be getting "Where is the file _____?" messages. You use those messages to direct the project to the files that are disconnected.
2. You imported a file into the project with its audio linked to its video and the two are no longer linked. In this situation, you would select the audio and video all at one time, click anywhere in the selection, and select Link Audio and Video or Group whichever command is available to you.
Please review, consider, and supply more details.
Yes, thanks, it's Premiere Elements 13 on an OSX. It's the first of the two options you described, and I find that your technique works. I have to do it clip by clip apparently.
Thanks very much!
The "Where is the file ______?" is typically a one by one operation. But, sometimes if you get lucky, answering one will trigger the remaining (or some of the remaining) to reconnect automatically.
Just in case message...
a. Do not move, delete, or rename files and folders that went into the project after the project has been saved closed.
b. If you have your project's source media stored on an external hard drive, make sure that the drive letter is not changing because of malfunctioning or a plug and play consequence
c. If you are transferring projects from computer to computer, make sure you have the project's source media as well as the project file. And, in some cases, computer 2 might need files activated to accommodate the computer 1 project.
Best wishes with your video editing
Thank you very much. j
