    Burning to dvd help!!

    terisvg

      Help.   I am trying to burn my video to a dvd and while it displays the slideshow beautifully, the soundtrack did not burn with it.  The audio from the video clips burned but not the audio from the soundtracks.  Help....any ideas??????

          Welcome to the forum.

           

          Can you tell us the steps used to produce the SlideShow?

           

          Was it done in PSE Organizer, and then sent to PrE, or some other method?

           

          What is the format/CODEC of the Audio?

           

          Good luck,

            I'm not that technical so will do my best to answser..LOL

            I imported pictures and video clips from my Mac computer. I did not do it in PSE organizer.  I did everything in the Premier Elements 10 software.  I imported music, mp3's I purchased off of Amazon.  I can play it back and it's perfect. 

            The audio from the video clips burn perfectly with the slideshow.  I have the mp3's as soundtracks..those did not transfer on to the dvd

              OK, that info works fine.

               

              As a test, use an audio-editor, such as the great, free Audacity, to convert that MP3 to PCM/WAV @ 48KHz 16-bit. All you have to do is Open that MP3, and then Save, choosing the above PCM/WAV. Import that WAV file into PrE, and give it a moment to Conform (should be very quick), then replace the MP3 on the Timeline, and try the DVD Burn again. MP3's can cause issues. See this ARTICLE for some other tips.

               

              Please let us know if that solves the issue.

               

              Good luck,

                Thank you.  I have downloaded Audacity and working on changing the music formats.  I have several in my video so may take a bit to re-import and lay exactly as I had them before...but I appreciate your help.  You are now my official hero!!

                  If you added your audio to either the soundtrack or narration track move it up to one of the Audio tracks above your image track (e.g. the Audio 2 track). This frequently resolves sound problems. No-one knows why - it just does !

                    Neale,

                     

                    Thanks for mentioning that. I had not considered the use of the Narration, or Soundtrack, fixed Audio Tracks. As you point out, those CAN cause issues, and just using a "regular Audio Track," that is empty, will usually fix things, if that's the cause.

                     

                    I have not heard of issues with those two fixed Audio Tracks in PrE 10, but maybe it's still too early in its life-cycle to know if whatever caused the problem, has been fixed in 10.

                     

                    Appreciated,
