Just started using PRE 8.0 and am running into problem encoding into QuickTime format only. The QT encoder fails to synchronize the audio and video tracks. Encoding an hour long single source video (MPEG SVCD format), the 2 tracks become offset by about 20 seconds.
I suspect this could be due to a rounding error in frame rate calculations during the conversion, so that the converted video stream slows down with respect to the audio (or vice versa). As this issue only occurs when created QT format, and not when creating Flash, DVD, or windows media files, it is less likely an issue with the source video.
Thanks for any help/insight
This often happens when you use MPEGs as source files. Particularly if they were originally DVDs or VCDs.
We recommend converting the files to DV-AVIs before you bring them into Premiere Elements. That will solve your problem. You can do this with MPEG Streamclip, per the FAQs to the right of this forum.
