This can happen with certain file formats and settings.
What model of camcorder is your video coming from and how did you get it into your computer?
When you started your Premiere Elements project, which settings did you select?
What operating system are you using?
I imported .MTS files shot on various camcorders (directly from the SD Card) and others where in Quicktime format. My System is a Windows 7 using the Intel Core i7-2600 processor, 6G0 RAM, 1To Harddrive, Nvidia GeForce GT440.
However on the project under PRE 9 the audio-video sync seems OK. The problem only appears on the burnt DVD. Are there specific settings I should have selected ?
What project settings did you select when you set up your Premiere Elements project? If you selected the correct settings, there will be no red lines above the clips on your timeline until you add effects to them.
Also, what happens if you use Share/Computer/AVI to output a DV-AVI? Is the audio still in sync on this output?
I exported the project to a .wmv media file and the sync was correct on that output.
On the PRE project, I don't see any red lines above the time lines except above some titles.
The settings selected are format HD 1080i
conversion method 24p
export is dv 2527x576i
does it help ?
Use Share/Computer/AVI to output a DV-AVI.
If there are no sync problems, open a new project, using DV widescreen settings, and import that AVI into it. Place the AVI on your timeline and create your DVD.
This DVD will not have synch problems.
indeed; it helped, thanks. Now I just have a quality problems with some of the effects contained in the slideshow imported from Photoshop.... but no more sound problem !
