Which project preset are you using when you start your project?
When you load up your project with your video, are you allowing time for the media to conform before you begin editing? (You'll see the progress in the lower right corner of the interface.)
thank you very much for your fast reply.
I tried different presets
PAL -> AVCHD -> FullHD 1080i 25;
PAL -> AVCHD -> FullHD 1080i 25 5.1 Channel;
PAL -> HDD,Flashmemory -> FullHD 1080i 25;
PAL -> HDV -> HDV 1080i 25
Even in the Properties (right click in Organizer of APE) of the above mentioned AVCHD files, there is no Audio.
If your Panasonic is recording in HA quality and you are using Premiere Elements Get Media/Video Importer to get the video off the camcorder, your project should use AVCHD 1920x1080 stereo.
Again, don't forget to let the video and audio conform before you begin editing.
Also, be sure to go to Premiere Elements' Edit/Preferences/Audio Hardware and ensure your ASIO audio settings are properly set up for your computer.
