I have playback issues after exporting my videos: the video runs fine but I can't scroll in the movie (whatever player I use) because the duration is totally wrong. When I check the properties I can see that the frame rate is something very low, which matches the crazy durations (several hours/days). Is it like a header issue? The video in itself seems fine.
I export a 12min47sec video at 25fps (I use AVCHD 1080p 25fps mp4 - the source is same resolution, same fps)
Playback will show 47hours56min06sec if I check the framerate I read: 0.11fps but it will still play fine
So far I'm using a different software to re-export the movie and it works fine after that, but it's kind of a waste of time...
Thank you for your time
Welcome to the forum.
What are the full specs. of you Export/Share/Publish settings?
Also, in your Timeline, if you hit the End key (might need to be Fn+End on some Macs), where does the CTI (Current Time Indicator) go - to the desired end of Clips, or way beyond?
So far I created 6 videos, it worked fine for 4 I only had issues with the last 2.
Just to be sure my install hasn't been bugged since the last 2, I tried with a simple clip just now and it works fine.
The last 2 involved a bit more cutting than the others it is the only difference I can think of. I also remember having to delete blank parts (hard to spot in the timeline because there was nothing but a thin vertical bar at the end) after i deleted cut parts. I only noticed them because the end time was wrong, above what was expected (I'm talking few minutes/seconds here, same as the deleted part). Usually nothing remains after the cut part is deleted.
Anyway to answer you questions: pressing the end key brings me to the end, where it is supposed to be. My guess it would have taken me further if I had tried it with the blank parts mentionned above.
And here are my settings:
Playback info: abnormal huge duration and fps of 0.111, still the video plays fine, i can pause, fastforward...
The timeline: you see it's very basic editing nothing more than cuts and deletes
What player is this? It is the player that "reads" the information from the file and displays it accordingly. If the player makes a mistake, this is what you will get. What happens if you bring the exported clip back into Premiere Elements and play it from within PrE11?
When you seek to a speciic point, it is the Player that is responsible for getting the frame there. So try a different playback application (vlc or quicktime player for example)
Thank you for the info and the screen-caps.
Along with VDOSurfer's suggestions, I would also run the output file through MediaInfo, http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en, a great, free file info utility, to see what it says about the file's properties. I find that for many formats, it does a better job, than the oft recommended G-Spot.
