It's probably an incompatible audio codec.
Your best solution is to convert the file to a DV-AVI before you import it into Premiere Elements, per the FAQs at the top of this forum.
Thanks I will try this ...
I have the same camera Canon FS100 (it was on sale)
It took quite a while, but I found that "Super" would create a workable file for use with Premiere Pro CS4.
There are possibly many ways to do it.
One I found that worked well was to save it as
mpg... Mpeg-II... mp2
you may also try
I looked at it - but I havn't tryed it yet.
And P Pro CS4 was then able to edit the file.
The issue is that the audio is AC-3 Dolby Digital
and so far I can't get it to work with Ppro?
PS if anyone knows of a better way to save the output files please let us know.
I tried 100s of combinations to find one that worked.
I don't claim that it is the best.
I was just very happy to be able to use the software I played big bucks for and the camera I (already had)
If I had bunches of extra money and an old tux laying around I would buy a better camera.....
But for now it is the best I can afford.
And I am enjoying learning the Adobe CS4 collection of software.
It gives me something to do while I look for work.
Good luck with your camera,
