I'm having trouble with Premiere Elements 10. I'm new to the program and I'm sure there's an easy solution to my problem:
Every now and again I am not able to apply or edit any effects on any of the clips in the timeline. There is no apparent reason for this. The buttons in the edit window are simply not highlighted. Sometimes it works after restarting the program (or computer), or after opening a new project (in which everything works fine, also), sometimes it does not.
I'm at a loss here; there must be a simple answer to this, but I just can't figure it out.
Thanks for your help!
Can you describe the steps you're taking to apply an effect?
Also, what operating system are you using and what are your system specs, including your processor speed, RAM load and how much free, clean, freshly defragmented space is on your C or main hard drive?
never mind; I still don't know why the buttons "edit effects" and "apply" are sometimes not highlighted, but I found the "properties" icon in the timeline, with which I'm able to access the clips' effects.
