    No sound with PE while importing video file

      Hello,

      I'm trying to import MPG file from my camcorder (Canon FS100) in Premiere Elements 4.0. The video is there, but I've got no sound ...
      If I play the MPG file in WMP, the sound is ok ... any idea ?
      Thanks for your help.
      Best regards,

      Michel

          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.

              Hello Michel,

               

              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.

               

              Super   v2009.bld.35

              www.erightsoft.com/super.html

               

              There are possibly many ways to do it.

              One I found that worked well was to save it as

               

              mpg...    Mpeg-II...   mp2

               

              use FFmpeg

              720:480 

              16:9

              29.97

               

              48000

              256

               

              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?

              en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ac3

               

               

              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,
