Also, what is the "screenline"? Do you mean Sceneline?
If so, which version of the program are you using? Which project settings did you select when you started your Premiere Elements project? (You can see these settings under the Edit menu.)
What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what format and resolution is it? How did you get it from your camcorder to your computer?
It also would be helpful to know what operating system you're using, how fast your processor is, how much RAM you have and how much free, clean, defragmented space is on your hard drive.
I am using Premiere Elements 4.
My HP computer should have plenty of capacity with about 700GB free hard drive space/ 6 G Ram. I upgraded awhile back hoping that would resolve the "elements.exe has stopped working. windows will close" message.
The capture was on a JVC Everio camcorder with a 30 gb hard drive plus micro sd card option.
Appareantly the file extension name is .mod.
I downloaded the clips to the computer hard drive video folder using the supplied copy feature of PowerCinema NE for Everio.
The get media seems to work fine, and I can drap and drop numerous clips into the Sceneline.
When I use the play button with the monitor pane, it plays about 2 or 3 clips when it stops with the error message.
The tutorial worked fine for editing and viewing rendering etc. I note that the sample files were avi files.
I do not recall selecting edit settings, e.g.for the wedding video project I am working on. should I select and save 'General"? I think I cleared the settings per the tutorial instructions.
Also, version 4 (which is 6 years old) is a fairly primitive version of this program and does not work well with this type of file. To edit MODs, I'd recommend you upgrade to at least version 10.
If I upgrade to version 11, will that eliminate the need to convert the MOD files to something else? Apparently 11 has many new features. As a beginner, would I still be able to maneuver throgh the basics readily.
I don't know about MOD files, since I don't use them

Yes, you can edit MOD files in version 11 if you use Premiere Elements to get the video from the camcorder to your computer.
