    Starting Auto-Analyzer.....

    PVGamesNL

      When I run Auto-Analyzer in Premiere Elements 10 on Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion), I see the dialog "Starting Auto-Analyzer....." but nothing's happening. I've waited and waited but Auto-Analyzer never starts.

          Are you applying the Auto Analyzer to a particular clip in your Media panel or on your timeline?

           

          If you're trying to run the Auto Analyzer over all, open the Organizer and, in its Preferences, set it to automatic by checking all the boxes.

            No, the Analyzer starts when I open Organizer. It is set to Automatic, but the dialog progress bar doesn't move.

              It could be your video source. What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what resolution and format is it?

               

              And have you matched your project settings to your source video? If so, you will NOT see red lines above your clips when you add them to your timeline. Is that the case in your project?

                Kodak Zi8 Pocketcam, 1080p H264 MOV.

                This is in Organzier. I haven't started a project in Premiere yet.

                  Start up a Premiere Elements project using the project settings for a 1080p DSLR.

                   

                  There are components in the program that aren't downloaded and installed until you first use them.

                   

                  That may work. But it's hard to say. That camcorder is neither a true DSLR nor a true AVCHD cam.

                   

                  In fact, if, when you add a clip to your timeline, the program offers to change the project settings, let it. It will make its best guess which codec your video is using.

                   

                  Unfortunately, a number of these pocket cams create their own proprietary MOV codecs so that they can store their video on very small hard drives -- so they may or may not behave as they should in Premiere Elements.

                    I reinstalled Premiere Elements and everything seems to be working fine now.
