I am new to Premiere Elements 10, My mom had it installed on her new computer. I am trying to edit videos but I am running into some problems with .mov files. I have searched the forums and not been able to find an answer that really helps so I am going to put all my info here and hope someone out there can help. I am not the most tech saavy person out there, so it may need to be "dumbed down" a bit for me to understand.
I have a Kodak Easy Share c160, and I am using an HP Envy17 running Win.7 Premium. My mom bought Photoshop Premiere Elements, back when she fist purchased her computer. I try and import my videos into PE10 and I get "generic problem" as a result I have checked out the "suppored file type" in the help section of premier and it says it supports .mov files. I have looked for updates on the adobe website and havent found any. What am I doing wrong?
. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Like AVIs, MOVs are just envelopes for your video files. What matters is the codec the file uses.
Like many snapshot still cameras, your camera saves its video in the MJPEG codec, a codec with Premiere Elements doesn't support.
Some people have found hacks that sort of make it work. But for the most part, it's best to edit this type of video with lower-end editors like Windows MovieMaker and iMovie.
But if you're determined to edit this video in Premiere Elements, you can try converting them to DV-AVIs, using one of the methods in the article from our FAQ library.
