Videos colors appear black in timeline but are OK when video is played from the Project Assets

May 7, 2013 8:05 AM

Adobe Premiere Elements 11

Windows 7 64Bit

i3 3.8GHz

8GB memory

ATI Radeon HD2600 video card


When I add the video and run it from the project assets it all looks fine, as soon as I add it to the timeline the colors wash out and I get a lot of black where colours should be, I have tried adding the video using the right-click 'insert to timeline', this sometimes works but I still see some distortment of colours when they play, I have tried to export in case it was just a preview issue but what I see is what I get.

    As long as PrEl will work with the original file (usually the case) it is better to work with original files... as you have discovered
