    audio in mpeg, but not in Premiere when imported

    okay.. this is odd.

    I got videos on DVD which needed to be edited etc etc etc

    I turned the VOB files into mpegs by adding the extension.. everything was working normally.

    I can double click the mpegs and watch them, with interlacing and all, but thats not the point this time..

    I hear audio when watching the mpegs, and until a few days ago, importing them into premiere did NOT present an issue..

    but now when I import the same clips to edit them better.,..

    I dont see any audio tracks, I don't hear them and the clips have a yellow line in the timeline.. somehow showing me something is up with the audio importing ?

    ideas ?

    none ?

    is this that simple an issue and I'm just too noob to figure it out ?

    are there threads elsewhere which may help me ?

    wth is going on ?

    I re-extracted the .VOB files from the DVD..
    (just by copying the video folder, the audio folder contains nothing)

    but as vob files, and even as the ".MPG" files I turn the vobs into, when playing in WMP have audio...

    but when I import that same mpg into EITHER AE or AP

    (after effects or Adobe premiere)

    there is no audio at all..

    just a thin yellow line which seems to show me there is no audio tracks...

    adjusting the volume in the programs does nothing either..

    cmon gang, this is driving me bonkers..

    HELP ?


    soooo, I found out elsewhere that if I import my mpegs into windows movie maker, then I can export it in a better format for editing... so I tried to export a Windows Media File.. and import that into premiere...

    I got my audio back !

    too much work though.. wth, it was working before by simply using premiere VOBs and altering them into MPEGs... maybe an update screwed things up codec wise ?

    Try MpegStreamclip for the conversion, much easier.

    It will convert all of the VOBs at the same time, quickly and with excellent results. Convert to DV-AVI for best results in Premiere.

    Are you using CS3 or CS4? The latest patch for CS4 adds proper support for VOB files.

    the patch ?

    where may I find this patch ?

    I tried to "update" but it says there are no new updates..

    & using converters to get the audio only seems to add more issues with the audio being out of sync.. and I am not about to resync it, my video is two hours long.

    but that was using windows media maker 2.6...

    I guess I will try this squared5 one for now...

    until I can find the patch for CS4..

    eta :

    is it the 4.0.1 one ? (I'm downloading that one now)

    eta.. my version is currently 4.1.0..

    and now that I have run this other patch, it tells me MPEGS are not supported.. neither are VOB files.

    why is this so difficult ? editing video is enough work as is..

    converting always seems to offset audio and takes so long anyway...

    I bet this mpeg streamclip thing even creates the same issue.. it sure is slow.

    Sorry, this one has me beat. The patch is indeed v4.1.0. I'm using it myself editing MPEG & VOB files without any problem. Maybe some of the codecs haven't installed correctly for you. If I were you I'd be looking at a complete uninstall and reinstall.
