Problems w/ buring DVD of photo slide show & best Premiere Elements 8 upgrade recommendation please.

May 6, 2012 9:35 AM

I created a video slide show in Adobe Photoshop & Premiere elements 8, kept getting messages:  "disk space low, exceeded recommended #of slides and/or recommended 30 minute duration".  So what, I want a 90 minutes slide slow?(!)  It allowed me to complete, but disk burn would never finalize (after stopping at 78% 8 hours later).  How do I get this project file to burn in Nero or something similar and is there better software out there?  I have a ton of videos to create after this photo slide show & I certainly can't wait all night for a video to burn after it is created.

PS:  I have had this problem w/ previous videos I created.  i.e. in the past, using same Premiere Elements version, I have combined multiple video clips into one DVD movie but it took all night to burn.  Any insight will be much appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum.


    I agree with John T., in that the pixel x pixel size of the Still Images would be the first thing that I would look into.


    Next, I interpret that error message to be related to the available HDD space. His links on furnishing more info will be important there. Pay special attention to furnishing the full specs. of your I/O sub-system, i.e. your HDD's, their size, speed, available defragmented free-space, controller type and how you have them allocated.


    A 90 min. DVD should NOT be over the avilable space on a DVD-5 disc.


    If you DO have adequate defragmented free-space on your HDD(s), you should be able to Burn to Folder, and then use Nero, Roxio or the great, free ImgBurn, to do the physical burn to DVD.


    However, if you have limited defragmented free-space, that will likely fail, as the working files required are very large.


    In very general terms, PrE needs between 40 - 60GB of defragmented free-space, just to run effectively and efficiently. When one does either a Burn to Folder, or Burn to Disc, that necessary space can go up.


    Also remember that as one approaches about 70% of HDD capacity, performance decreases. As one nears 100%, performance can slow to a crawl, and at 100% catastrophic failure of the HDD is a strong possibility. One should not exceed about 70%, and NEVER go to 100%.


    Good luck, and please let us know more, and especially about your I/O sub-system.
