There are a variety of things that don't work right with screen/game capture software because the footage can be in a variable frame rate format. Using a utility like Handbrake (free) can transform that footage to a fixed frame rate. That may fix your issue.
What else could be the problem? I haven't always had this problem with my recordings.
I don't know. Most of the people that post here regularly are videographers that edit footage from cameras. Maybe there is someone that has a Mac, a PS4 and whatever you use to record the video. It is users here, not Adobe staff.
Usually the process here starts with verifying source files and then seeing if they match the project settings and Premier Elements capabilities. Most of the time it gets solved.
What are the source files and how are they captured?
Good luck! I hope I, or someone else, can help.
I used Handbrake and it worked thank you so much. But i dont use an external PVR. I use the pvr right in my ps4 and straight to a usb and it comes out as n mp4
Thanks for marking my answer correct.
I won't try to suggest that I understand video games. However, I've read that they employ a variable frame rate to improve the liveliness of the game. So any recording system then may be likely to record in a variable frame rate. Videos are like movies. The frame rate is constant. I don't know if it is most, some or all video editors, but they are created for video makers, not game players.
The only real way to know what your machine is doing is to examine the video file with a freeware tool like "MediaInfo".
