This watermark will appear in the trial version if you are adding video that needs to be rendered.
If your video needs to be rendered as soon as you add it to your timeline, it's an indicator that your project set-up doesn't match your video specs.
What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what resolution and format is it?
When you set up your Premiere Elements project, which project settings did you select?
Part 1 of my free 8 part Basic Training tutorial series shows you how to correctly set up a project.
Thanks for your reply:
The clips are from a canon powershot a710 camera. The clips are 640X480 *.mvi files. I did not change any of the settings in PE. I just opened the clips from my videos folder. When I tried to play them all I got was a continuous “created with PE 10 trial version” video. I am only a novice so I don’t know if I am supposed to render the clips. They play ok in Windows media player and all other video programs.
I will check out your basic training tutorial to see if any of the settings need to be changed, in the mean time do you have any other suggestions?
Once again Thank you for reply, George
Once you've purchased the full version of Premiere Elements, you can remove the watermark from projects created with the trial version by deleting the rendered files.
To delete the rendered files, go to the Timeline menu and select Delete Render Files. The program will then recreate "clean" renders as needed.
Hope it Helps

Video from a still camera will "often" use the MJPEG (Motion JPEG) codec... but, read on...

Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing

Unfortunately, your camera is shooting video in an SD (Standard Definition) Frame Size, BUT with square pixels. SD has two PAR's (Pixel Aspect Ratios), and square pixels is not one of them. Many still camera mfgrs. have gotten lazy, and now just do SD video, but with the square pixels, PAR = 1.0, from the Stills.
As of PrE 10, that 640 x 480 with a PAR = 1.0 is not offered as a Preset. I cannot say if PrE 11, due out soon, will offer that.
Trial will have the watermark. Serialized version wont have that. If you have serialized Premiere Elements and still getting the trial strip, try de-activating and re-activating the product.
Thanks for the info.
On a chance that it might solve the problem, I opened the clip in “Windows live movie maker” – then just saved it without doing anything to it. Well the clips work now with Premier elements. Now I only have to figure out Premier Elements. LOL
Thank you for all your help. George
