          If you are using Premiere Elements on a network, there are some special things things you need to do.


          I'd recommend you contact Adobe Tech Support by clicking the Contact Adobe button at the bottom of this web page.

            it are all stand alone Mac's. The only thing they get from a network is the internet, you don't have to log in or so?

              Which version of the operating system are you using?


              What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what format is it?


              When you start your Premiere Elements project, which project settings are you selecting? If you're selecting the correct project settings, there will be no red lines above the clips when you add them to your timeline. Is that what is happening in your projects?


              Do you render your timelines whenever you see red lines above the clips?

                we are using Mac OS X version 10.6.8

                using  panasonic SDR SW2 and HDC SD60 one is MTS the other on MOD

                selecting PAL DV (options standart and widescreen)

                if you import a clip there's a small red line, but it turns into green when you render.

                  First, we highly recommend against using two such different formats in the same project. It almost always leads to problems.


                  Second, your project settings are incorrect for BOTH formats.


                  I could find no specs on the SDR SW2, so I don't know what format, resolution and codec it uses for its video. MOD files are usually standard definition 720x480 (720x576 PAL), but without knowing, I can't advise you on the project settings.


                  The HDC SD60 is an AVCHD camcorder. To edit this video, your project should be set up for AVCHD 1920x1080.


                  In any event, these two video formats should NOT be used in the same project together. And, as I explain in my books as well ias well as in my Basic Training tutorials, matching your project settings to your source video is VITAL to a successful video editing experience.

                    we don't use both camera's in the same project, but it happends at both different formats on different mac's. importing is not the problem, that works just fine and editing also works, but without any notion it just shuts down, no matter what you where doing ??/

                      This is because your project settings do not match your video.

                        Even if you are using different clips on different project settings which is although not advisable, it should NOT crash.

                        Also, I couldn't figure out what would be causing the issue, but I would suggest you to have enough empty space on your HardDisk.

                        And, there was an update for Adobe Premiere Elements 9. Maybe, that will help.

                        The update can be found here


                        Hope it helps,

                          I agree with Aniks caus the programme works fine but after 10, 20 minutes or so it just shuts down. I will install the update en try to find updates for the videodriver as well.

                          I will post again when I did all that


                          thanks 4 the help

                            I searched for updates but elements says it's already the latest version. when i started element at one mac I got an error. I saved the report and this is just a small part of it (the latest thread is 035)


                            getting a little bit hopeless over here :-(

                              This is the link you are supposed to follow.


                              Also, I was wondering if you launched your app, was it from a standard user?

                                Also, if it still doesn't solve your issue, you may want to contact Adobe Support.

                                They may help you.

                                  yes its a standard user, you don't have to log in, you just it turn on and you can use the mac and all of the programmes installed

                                    Yes, then the update 9.0.1 was aimed to avoid this crash. Just download that update and follow the instruction. This must fix your problem.
