PE11 locks up.

New user:   iMac 10.7.5  3.4GHz i7 4GB mem ~2GB free  300GB disc free

When I tried to import from a card reader, some pictures were, maybe 75 of the 339 in the card.  Then PE11 became unresponsive, can't quit, cancel.   Mouse still worked on other programs.   As another thought, I didn't like for it to open in full screen mode.

    Why are you using Premiere Elements, a video editor, to try and edit pictures?

     

    Are you going to make a movie, or slideshow, from those pictures?

    Have you ensured that all of your photos are no larger than 1000x750 pixels in size before you bring them into a Premiere Elements project?

    The limitation on Image sizes in PrE is 4096 x 4096, but each Image takes resources to process.

     

    That is why we normally suggest Scaling them down to ~ 2000 x 1500 for HD (High Def) Projects. The "rule of thumb" is 1000 x 750 for SD (Standard Def) Projects. This relieves the computer having to process pixels, that are not used.

     

    Even with 4000 x 3000, within the 4096 x 4096 limitation, a lot of computing horsepower is used up, and one cannot show more than 1920 x 1080 pixels at a time, with an HD Project, so the extra pixels just take resources, to no end.

     

    Also, Photoshop and Photoshop Elements have more and better Scaling algorithms, than does PrE - they are, after all, Image editing programs.

     

    When Scaled outside of Premiere, I have had Projects with 3000+ 720 x 480 (SD Project), that edited smoothly. On the same computer, a Project with but five 4096 x 4096 Images slowed to a crawl, with the sixth. I had to take the Project to Adobe After Effects, as it handles large Images in a totally different, and better way.

     

    For advice on Scaling large Still Images, this article should be helpful: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/450798?start=0&tstart=0

     

    Good luck,

    Now, as per Steve's earlier comment, are you editing Video, or Images?

     

    PrE is a Video editor, and not an Image editor.

     

    Good luck,

    >If I had known that was a limitation
