    Premiere Elements 4 auto analyze off

    tompears

      Help.  I tried to install Premiere Elements 9 on my old Vista machine and got the dreaded error 1935 CE3230AC-E72E-3EDF-8A57-87FCE1CF2629 HRESULT: 0x80071A30.  Searching for help, I came to the conclusion that it is a registry cash screwed up and reinstalling Vista is really the only way.  So I went back, reinstalled Premiere Elements 4 and came here for help with:  Auto Analyze, scene detect seems to be on and I can't turn it off??? Capturing video from DV leaves me with 100 files instead of the 1 I want.  Impossible to find help/support for PE4.  Anyone know now to turn this make many files on capture off????

          First, I'd recommend you run a registry cleaner on your computer. It should save you a major overhaul of the computer. (Though a $70 upgrade to Windows 7 might be even wiser.)

           

          You can use EasyCleaner or my personal favorite Advanced System Care Free, both of which are free. (Advanced System Care does a lot of wonderful cleaning and tuning with a single click of a button -- but some people object to it because it's Chinese software. But, in my experience, as long as you watch the option screens during installation and reject the tool bar it wants to add to your browser, it won't add anything bad to your computer.)

           

          Since Premiere Elements 4 predates Windows Vista by nearly 2 years, you'll be much better off with version 9.

           

          With either, you can turn off the Auto Analyzer during capture by setting it to break scenes by Timecode (or not at all) rather than by Content.

           

          You can also turn off the Auto Analyzer that runs in the background by going to the Elements Organizer program and unchecking the option under Edit/Preferences/Auto Analyzer.

            Steve, thanks so much for taking the time to answer my call in the wilderness.  I'll definitly proceed down the path of installing Version 9  if either of your registry clearner recommendations allows it and I will be careful about tool bars!

             

            My machine is

            Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2200 @ 2.20 GHz 2.20 GHz

            RAM 3GB

             

            You think Windows 7 would be a possible alternative?

             

            You say

            you can turn off the Auto Analyzer during capture by setting it to break scenes by Timecode (or not at all) rather than by Content.

             

            But I can find no documentation to tell me where in the menu tree to do that?

             

            I used PE4 to load about 30 DV tapes and all went well. I'm using a IEEE firewire connection to a sony DV cam.   Then on #31, it decided to creat 100 files, instead of just 1.  Of course I could have clicked on something by accident.  The only other hint I have is that the tape it is failing on was produced 6 years after the others.  I have not gone back and tried an older tape to see if that "fixes" the problem.

             

            You say:

            You can also turn off the Auto Analyzer that runs in the background by going to the Elements Organizer program and unchecking the option under Edit/Preferences/Auto Analyzer.

             

            There is tab that says Organizerape4mainscreen.jpg

             

            There is an Clip menu on the main screen and it has a Screen Detect choice but that choise and ALL the choices on the Clip memu a grayed out?

             

            I must be missing something obvious?  I can post more screen shots.  I can also me reached at tpearsATaol.com  I tried to send you a message instead of reposting but could not find a Steve Grisetti?  Happy Thursday

              In order to turn off the background Auto Analyzer, you need to be in the Elements Organizer program. Not Premiere Elements. You can launch the Elements Organizer from the Premiere Elements Welcome screen when you first start the program.

               

              The option to break scenes by content is on the the Capture screen, which opens when you select the DV Capture option under the Get Media button under the Premiere Elements Edit tab. This will only affect how the program performs with freshly captured DV video, of course.

                Hello Steve

                 

                 

                I have attached a couple screen shots.  Let me know if you have any trouble seeing, I can always post them to another location.

                 

                 

                You say

                 

                 

                You can launch the Elements Organizer from the Premiere Elements Welcome screen when you first start the program.

                 

                 

                I have attached the welcome screen where I see no way to launch Ele organizer.  What am I missing?  The top menu items are all unaccessable.

                 

                 

                You say

                The option to break scenes by content is on the the Capture screen, which opens when you select the DV Capture option under the Get Media button under the Premiere Elements Edit tab.

                 

                 

                I can find no such option except one grayed out under clip back at the project screen.  Again I have attached a couple screen shots to show you what I see.

                 

                 

                There must be something obvious that I am missing or that is different about my APE4 instance.

                 

                 

                Happy Sunday

                  I can see none of the images you posted with your response, Tom. Sorry.

                   

                  Also, I very much advise you against responding to an e-mail from this forum or posting from a mobile device. Your cently post includes two e-mails and a phone number. As you're probably aware, spambots cruise these forums looking for personal information like that so that they can bombard you with spam.

                    Tom,

                     

                    For attaching screen-caps to the forum Replies, this article might be useful: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4047580#4047580

                     

                    As Steve points out, often e-mail clients cannot attact images, in the forum, and it is much easier from browser access via HTTP.

                     

                    Good luck,

                    PS - As Steve points out, personal info is rather exposed in an open forum, like this one. Steve can delete that personal information, if you like.

                      DAMN, I had no idea when I replied to Steve's email that came to my email address that it would show up here!!!  Newby mistake.

                       

                      Is there any way I can erase my post?

                        E-mail is a bit different here. You were replying to Steve's post, or really to the notification of it, and not to a direct e-mail from Steve.

                         

                        What you got was an e-mail "notification," that there was a response to your post. There are several different ways to get e-mail notifications from the Adobe Forums.

                         

                        If one replies via an e-mail client, then it goes to the forum, though there can be some limitations, such as the inability to attach an image, in most cases - differs by e-mail client and how their POP server handles things.

                         

                        For general usage of the forum, I recommend accessing them via HTTP, and a Web browser, to have all features, and to see all posts to a thread. Others still like the POP access, via an e-mail client (say Outlook), from either their computer, smartphone, or tablet.

                         

                        I have all e-mail notifications turned OFF, and just manually check the various forums, but that is just me.

                         

                        Good luck,
