AVCHD files often require a lot of power, Rik. Usually it takes a quad core computer to run them.
But this means that a computer with your specs would more likely stutter than play in slow motion.
Are you importing the video from the camcorder using Premiere Elements Organizer/Get Media/AVCHD video? Is your project file set up as an AVCHD preset?
Thanks for your reply Grisetti, the funny thing is actually I also tried to work with the files on an Octo core which also didn't work.
Nevertheless, because that after exporting, so basically rendering, it is also out of sync and playing in slow motion. This is weird because no matter how fast or slow the computer, after rendering it shouldn't matter in the result.
The files are not AVCHD, they are already stored as MP4 files directly on the memorycard of the camera, and can just be copied and pasted onto the computer using a card reader.
Oh, that explains it.
You can't use MP4s (except AVCHD) as source files for Premiere Elements.
You'll need to convert them to DV-AVIs.
Converting into any other format would certainly help. Premiere Elements does run into some problems handling the MP4 files.
