Luker, are you working in Timeline mode or Sceneline mode?
To do what you want to do, you really need to be in Timeline mode. Then you should find it pretty easy to do.
Good point Steve about timeline versus sceneline: sorry I did not think of that.
Luker, an additional thought is:
if you did not see individual photos on the Sceneline or Timeline, then you also need to Break Apart the slideshow. Right click on the slide show and choose the Break Apart (wording may not be exact) from that right click menu. I think that you can do the Break apart from either the sceneline or the timeline.
Steve,I think that some additonal help may be needed.
If I were to try adding this meow audio,
using the Timeline I would position the CTI at the beginning of that still photo on the timeline and then drag the audio clip to near the CTI position across the audio track. Is that correct? And is it necessary to hold the Ctrl key down while dragging the audio in order to avoid a ripple effect?
I think your method is exactly right, Barb. :)
>And is it necessary to hold the Ctrl key down while dragging the audio in order to avoid a ripple effect?
to confirm since Luker is on a tight schedule to finish and the PC from which I am typing does not have Premiere Elements for me to verify -
the answer to the necessary to hold down Ctrl key is
This is a followup to the statement about the Narration & Soundtrack Audio Tracks. Just as a test, I added some SFX to Soundtrack and the Narration Track, and did not experience any problems. What problem did Lurker find with the "cat's meow?"
I did get a lesson in PE's Audio Mixer though, as I'm used to setting the Sends to add the automated controls via Track Keyframes, in P-Pro. Boy, did I have a lot of Keyframes to clean up. I learned to do my Audio settings
I pressed Play.
I think that it was a problem of not knowing what to do rather than having attempted something that failed. His slide show was originally created in the Photoshop Elements slide show editor and sent it to Premiere Elements. So he may not have had any prior expience using Premiere Elements.
Then to complicate the discussion I was typing from a laptop that does not have Premiere Elements, so I could not try anything I was describing.
Thank you for the clarification. As I do not have PS Elements (only PS), I've never done a slideshow from PSE. Now I see how, what Lurker was doing and needing to do, could be a problem.
At least by following this thread, I got to experience PE's Audio Mixer to see how it differs from the one in PPro. Even with programs that are cousins, there can still be a little learning curve.
BTW, did Lurker get the Project finished? Here's hoping so.
Barb, Steve, Bill, thanks a bunch! Got it to work, burned a DVD (4.15GB!) and played it. At first I placed the "meow" in the wrong place on the timeline and got a real jolt when it played. I mistakenly thought the timeline displayed would directly correspond to the image displayed. I need to read more about timelines and scenelines.
I am disappointed PSE slideshows imbedded in PE don't have a better fit. As noted earlier, it appears "start" cropping is lost.
Glad you got it work, Luker!
