premiere Elements 10 crashing!!!!! please please help!!!

May 18, 2013 10:03 PM

I am making a video of my photos, adding transitions, text, titles and menus..

My computer is a Laptop running Windows 7 home premium

Intel Core i5-2450M 2.5GHZ with turbo boose up to 3.1 GHz

4 GB DDR3 memory

NVIDA GeForce GT 630M with 1 GB dedicated VRAM

 

all which I would have thought enough to run  Premiere elements 10

BUT I can load only approx 8 photos before it starts to crash!

I start to get the busy curser and then the screen whites out and it is a devil of a thing to get to shut down!

I have turned off virus software and internet connection while working.. doesn't do any good.

HELP

    First, ensure that all photos are reduced in size to no larger than 2000x1500 pixels in size. Oversized photos are the chief reason for program crashes.

     

    Also render (press Enter) whenever you see red lines above the clips on your timeline in Timeline view.

    Besides what SG asks you about pixel dimensions of the 8 photos that you say result in program crash when they are added to the Timeline, whatelse is on that Timeline at the time that you add the 8 photos?

     

    Does the crash occur before or after you have applied the transitions and effects to these 8 photos?

     

    What happens if you create a new project with just the 8 photos? Does the program crash?

     

    Thanks.

    Also, replace your Mp3 with an AVI. That makes a HUGE difference in program performance!

     

    You can convert the file with the free download Audacity.

    Save your MP3 to PCM/WAV @ 48KHz 16-bit, for Import into PrE.

     

    Good luck,

    With Audacity open and your .mp3 imported via File Menu/Open, if you want to convert to .wav,

     

    a. Go to File Menu/Export

    b. In the Export File Dialog, open the Save As File drop down list to reveal the choice

    c. From the choices, select wav

    Please refer to screenshot attached

    If you run into problems with regard to import/export of .mp3, that means you have to download and install the Lame codec first and then proceed with the mp3 to wav conversion.

    Please check out the above and see if you find it helpful. You may have been there and done that already.

     

    Thanks.
