I''m a new user of Premiere Elements 10 and relatively new to video editing. My system info is: 2010 Mac Pro quadcore 2.66 Ghz with 12 Gigs of memory, NVIDIA GeForce GT120 512Mb running Lion 10.7.3. The red rendering line in my project turns green, as expected, after rendering but then reappears red after I close the project and reopen it. The project is saved regularly after rendering and everything works normally. No changes are made to any clips and as I stated the render line is green when the project is saved and closed. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong. Thanks in advance.
What is the location of your Scratch Disks, and especially the Render Files?
It sounds as though the link to those Render Files is getting broken for some reason.
Good luck, and please let us know a bit more.
Is that red line there when you first import the video, and before you do any work? (such as effects)
If yes, that means your project does not match your video
Bill Hunt: Scratch Disks and render files are on the same internal disk as the Elements program file. All scratch disks are assigned to the same folder on this disk. Render files are all in the same folder as the the scratch disks. I have just trashed the PE preferences file and reset preferences as they were previously. I then reloaded the project file, rerendered it, saved it, closed and reopened it...problem still exists.
J. Smith:The clips were clean when I imported them. The redlines didn't appear until after I added a title and a transition. The red lines only appear over the title and transition.
Thank you for that information. It kills about all of my theories.
Something is keeping PrE from seeing the links that it created to the Render Files, so PrE cannot find them - the link is dead.
I know so very little about Mac's, that I cannot even imagine where to begin. Maybe a Mac-user will drop by, and have an idea, and then we both will learn something.
Wish that I had more to offer, but good luck,
