Hi --

Just purchased and installed premiere elements. went to import several avi files and each one has issues with the sound being slow or distorted. these same files open without problem in VSDC editor, Movie Maker, Movie Editor and Camtasia. What is the issue with Premiere (or what could I be doing wrong...)?

Thanks in advance!

Please use the free MediaInfo and post a screenshot the properties of your media in tree view:

If it is not a supported codec or is variable frame rate, you may need to covert with Handbrake:

Thanks Bob, I'll get to that computer later today. To be clear: there are some codecs that other editors support (i.e. VSDC and Camtasia) that Premiere Elements does NOT support? If so, is it possible to add codecs to Premiere Elements?

I DID previously read the Adobe article on Premiere Elements and Cdoecs. What I am having trouble wrapping my head around is that I clearly have a valid codec installed for these AVI files or else VSDC, Camtasia and Movie Maker would not be able to open them. My limitation is that I don't understand why Adobe is not or can not use the same codec to open AVI files. AND if it is true that Elements ONLY works with some codecs, is there a comprehensive list of specific codecs that Elements will snuggle up to ...................

Please answer Bob's question about Mediainfo,

Avi is not a codec but a container.

"I don't understand why Adobe is not or can not use the same codec...." 

 

It is because editing is more complex with different requirements.  Playback is easy by comparison.  From the help file:  " The technical requirements for editing video files are more stringent than the requirements for playing video files. You sometimes have to transcode (convert) problematic files."
