Where are all the menu templates?

Oct 20, 2013 9:25 AM

Tags: #video #premiere_elements_10

I want to try and use a Menu at the start of a project that i have just finished but the version of Premiere Elements 10 that I loaded on my computer only has 1 un-attractive template.  I understand there should be a selection to chose from, but where are they and how do I access them?

    This says version 11, but I think the process is the same http://forums.adobe.com/message/5369141#5369141

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    The Menus (part of the Additional Functional Content, or AFC), is a separate installation, from either a disc in the physical media pack, or as a separate download and install, from the downloaded version. Did you install that AFC material?

     

    Good luck,

    If you do not have a Content installation disc for your Premiere Elements 10, then you are going to download the Content for that

    version from Adobe.

     

    I have just gone through the details on that matter in a recent post here and have also written up the details in a blog post.

    http://www.atr935.blogspot.com/2013/10/pe-7-8-910-content-download.htm l

     

    Please review the blog post. If any questions, please do not hesitate to ask for clarification on anything that I have written.

     

    If you do have a Content installation from a boxed purchase, that is the best and most convenient scenario. If so, look for the disc that specifically is labelled Content for your version and operating system.

     

    Please update us on your results.

     

    Thanks.

    If you purchased Photoshop Elements 10 bundled with Premiere Elements 10, then you have 5 installations discs.

    We seem to agree on that. But, after that, I am not sure what you are looking at, especially when you write:

     

    I have looked at each of the

    discs and the information supplied with them, but there is nothing to

    indicate which disc might contain the AFC, nor how to obtain this material

    from any other source.

     

    Look for the word CONTENT on disc 4 and 5 discs, not Hunt's designation AFC.

     

    Disc 1 of 5

    Disc 2 of 5

    Disc 3 of 5

    Disc 4 of 5 - If Premiere Elements 10 is on Windows, then you use this disc to install CONTENT

    Disc 5 of 5 - If Premiere Elements 10 is on Mac, then you use this disc to install CONTENT.

     

    CONTENT includes Premiere Elements 10 content for Instant Movie, DVD Templates, etc.

     

    That CONTENT that you will be installing from the disc is the same as you would get from Adobe online

     

    Adobe Premiere Elements 10 Content 1

    Adobe Premiere Elements 10 Content 2

    Adobe Premiere Elements 10 Content 3

    Adobe Premiere Elements 10 HD Content 1

    Adobe Premiere Elements 10 HD Content 2

    Adobe Premiere Elements 10 HD Content 3

     

    Explore the CONTENT installation disc to prove it to yourself.

     

    To install Premiere Elements 10 Content from the right disc, you insert the disc in the tray of the DVD burner and follow the AutoPlay of the disc and follow the instructions.

     

    If you no longer have the disc, then check out the instructions for installation of CONTENT from Adobe via the link given.

     

    Please let us know if you are now clear on the above.

     

    Thanks.

    I thought that this screenshot of the Premiere Elements 10 Windows Content disc might help.

    ATR,

     

    Thank you for that screen-shot of the AFC disc for PrE 10. That should solve the problem.

     

    Appreciated,

    Hunt,

     

    It may be your designation AFC that is confusing the user who is looking for a AFC, instead of CONTENT, on the CONTENT installation disc.

     

    But, let us not take anything for granted. Let us see how the details play out.

    Well, that is why I identified it, in the first reply as "Additional Functional Content, " Adobe's term for it.

    Hunt,

     

    I have been involved with many versions of Premiere Elements  going back to Premiere Elements 2 and I have never heard Premiere Elements Content referred to as "additional functional content". So, if Adobe has been using that term to describe Premiere Elements Content, I guess I may have missed it in all these years. Rather, I suspect that the term is used in Premiere Pro circles, and there I am not sure what that AFC would represent...Instant Movie Themes, DVD Templates, Titles & Text, Music, other?

    http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/library-functional-content-mi ssing.html

     

    I smiled thinking about this. If Adobe has opted to call Content for these Pro products Additional Functional Content, is that meant to imply that it offers a bunch of Additional Nonfunctional Content as well?

     

    We both have covered the different nuances in the naming of what is being sought, and where to find Premiere Elements Content has been elaborated on in great detail. So, looking forward to update from Sialis that Premiere Elements 10 Content was found and is being used, hopefully functionally.

    ATR,

     

    That term, "Additional Functional Content," has been used by Adobe, since Premiere (precursor of PrPro) 6.0, and then Adobe Encore, as of version 1.0. Not sure how you have missed it, all those years?

     

    The Additional Functional Content has been Menus and Titles, that are not installed with the programs.

     

    Until PrPro CS 3, PrPro could also do about the same authoring, that is still available in PrE. As of PrPro CS 3, that Additional Functional Content was included with Adobe Encore, which was included with PrPro, as of CS 3.

     

    The term has been around for more than ten years now.

    Hunt,

     

    Your reply seems to prove what I suspected.

     

    There is not a single Premiere Elements mention in your explanation of Additional Functional Content and its origins - all references to Pro products. Can you point me to one Premiere Elements article which describes its Content as Additional Functional Content? If you can, I apologize for missing those articles. Whether or not Pro and Elements versions have any similarities is neither here nor there in this instance of pointing a Premiere Elements user to a named Premiere Elements feature. But, I have no more to add. My post 10 has the essentials of what I have been trying to point out to you.

     

    We await good news from Sialis.

    Sialis

     

    Thank you for the follow up with the good news that you had Premiere Elements 10 Content disc 4 (labelled "4 of 5") and were able to use that to install the Premiere Elements 10 Windows Content.

     

    Let me further clarify the point that you made about the disc that you describe as "Disc 5". That disc does

    not apply to you so you do not use it at all. That "Disc 5" (labelled "5 of 5") is for the Mac Premiere Elements 10 user

    which you are not. Note the markings on the disc 5 of 5 as shown in the screenshot below:

    Disc5-1.jpg

    Although Adobe supplies 5 discs with the bundled Photoshop Elements 10 and Premiere Elements 10, they are not ALL to be used by a given user. There are certain ones for the Windows user and certain ones for the Mac user. You need to check out the markings on the discs. If I recall

     

    Disc 1 of 5 is for Windows other than Windows 7 64 bit

    Disc 2 of 5 is for Windows 7 64 bit

    Disc 3 of 5 is for Mac

    Disc 4  of 5 is for Windows CONTENT

    Disc 5 of 5 is for Mac CONTENT

     

    So, if you have Premiere Elements 10 on Windows 7 64 bit your only focus should be on disc 2 and 4.

     

    Please do not hesitate to ask if you need clarification on anything that I have written. For now, we check out the disc menu customization that you can do within the program at the level of the Disc Menus section of Premiere Elements 10.

    Explore and experiment. We are here if you need any help after you explore and experiment with the disc menus.

     

    Thanks for the opportunity to help.

    ATR,

     

    I am going with the exact terms used for many years by Adobe, the makers of the software. I see that Adobe is still using that term as of CS 6: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1229875 In the Reply #1 with a reprint from the one-line manual, the word "additional" has been omitted here, but "functional content" is prominently displayed. As there is a limited set of "functional content" installed, whether PrPro, AE, Encore or others, any other "functional content" is "additional."

    Hunt,

     

    The important news is that Sialis has gotten the Premiere Elements 10 Content installed, and it is ready for use.

     

    That was the goal of Sialis, you, I, and all. Mission accomplished.

    That is good news, and discussing the minutiae of the semantics of Adobe’s own references is possibly counter productive to the OP, but then I detect some aggression from you on that matter.

     

     

    That the “content” was found is excellent.

    Hunt,

     

    Specifying the exact name CONTENT on the Premiere Elements disc was very productive in this instance and far from minutiae.

    Ah, would that be the CONTENT that is both "additional," and "functional?"
