That camcorder shoots exclusively in 60p 1920x1080, a format that is technically not supported by Premiere Elements at this time.
However, one of our talented forum members has figured out a way to tweak the program so that it will work.
This is not an official plug-in, so there is no technical support for it. But a number of users have found success with it.
Thanks for the reply. I will download the patches and give them a try.
many thanks, Malc.
