Need some help here, I have video shot on Sony HDR UX7 which outputs an M2ts file. it's in AVCHD 1080i format and 5.1 sound. I'm trying to create a movie that will be output at 720 x480 HD. I have statrted a new project and picked NTSC -HDV-HDV720-30 as the type of project. I have used these files before and successfully made a smaller version of the movie and output it and converted it to a flash movie.
Now I find working with the M2Ts files a bit flakey, should I have problem editing from these files, I have taken all these files and batch converted them to mpeg2 files. But as I am dragging them to the sceneline, I drag them to the "Next Scene Here" box, but they seem to stack on top of the first scene, why is this happening, I then cannot change or delete any scenes. Also I am trying to add the Music score to the bottom of the window, this seems to be a problem too.
Please help me in trying to figure this out, What is the best way to create an HD movie for publication on the web?. Am I missing something here.
PS, I'm new to Video and Premere Elements, but a fairly compentent computer user.
Cheers Mike H
Your Sceneline behavior is often caused by AC3 5.1 SS Audio. I think that you will have a much better experience, if you switch to Timeline Mode. Note that your Audio will appear down the Audio Track display, and you may have to use the Scrollbar to see it.
This behavior is likely the result of your using 5.1 audio in your video but not setting up your project as AVCHD using the 5.1 audio set-up.
If you'll begin a new project and apply the 5.1 project setting, your video clips will not pile onto the Video 4 track.
