DVD from Premiere
G' morning all, and what a happy morning it as we're through to the playoffs a week Monday. But I digress...
My son downloaded an .avi file of a commercial movie (don't ask...) and asked me to convert it to DVD so he can play it on a set-top player.
So I imported the .avi file into Premiere. No problem. However, weirdly, when I transferred the .avi file to the timeline, it looked as if there was no sound in the sound track (i.e. no little black squiggly line - pardon the technical jargon). Sure enough, when I played the file from the timeline, it played just fine - but no sound.
However, when I moved the .avi file from the project window to the left hand 'screen' (i.e. the one to the left of the screen that plays the timeline) it played fine, with sound.
Anyway, for the price of a DVD I thought I'd try to export it - but sure enough, the encoded DVD had no sound.
So: what's going on? If anyone can explain - and also provide a fix - that would be wonderful. TIA.
