    mp3 support in Elements 9

    mytimbuk2 Level 1

      What do we need to do in order to retrieve media in an mp3 format from our hard drive into Premier Elements 9? I get a generic error, will not recognize the mp3 file.

      Thanks

          How are you adding this file to your project? Are you using Get Media/From Files and Folders?

           

          Although Premiere Elements will work with MP3s, you'll get much better performance if you convert the file to a WAV using a program like the free audio editor Audacity.

            Yes, get media from.  I'm sure I've used it before... perhaps it was in Version 3 before I upgraded, but it doesn't work now for mp3 in version 9.  I converted it to WMV or whatever the windows audio is and it worked fine.  Just another quirk I gues....  The strangest one I've seen yet is no "back to start" button, have to use the HOME button on my numbers keyboard. Just glad I was able to find someone who suggested that.

             

            Thanks
