I hope you can help me with the following: I've created a project with 1920x1080 material out of a Sony video camera. When I exported my project to my BD-RE for proofing, everything was ok. The video was of the expected quality with sound present (original sound recorded with the video). Without changing anything to the project, I burned two more 'real' blu-rays. No re-rendering was required. These two blu-rays have, to my surprise, no sound at all. Checking the discs with a software player, it became apparent that no audio was recorded at all. I didn't touch or change a thing in Premiere Elements. What am I doing wrong?
What brand of blank media did you use for the faulty BD?
I use blanks from 'MediaRange' (probably a German generic brand) together with an LG BH10LS, but I don't believe that this is my problem. This morning, I've deleted all render files and had Premiere Elements write my project directly to a MediaRange blank without first using my proofing BD-RE. This time, I had sound!
My workaround for now: first I export my project to blu-ray, then I copy the files from the blu-ray to hard disc. The consecutive discs I burn with Nero with all the riscs involved with the settings there. Apparently, I'm doing it correctly. My blu-rays play on an old Pansonic and a new Philips player.
I apparently have some incompatibility in my hardware somewhere. But as nice as a direct export out of Premiere Elements would be, I can live with my Nero- workaround.
Thanks for your help!
