I have Premiere Elements 11 on Windows 8 64 bit. This laptop has a SD slot.
a. Opened Premiere Elements 11 new project.
b. Under Pulbish+Share/Computer/AVI, I selected Presets: DV NTSC Standard. In Save In:, I set for the H: drive which represented the SD card (for which I created a new folder to receive the export from Premiere Elements 11). It worked.
I can also do the same type of thing with my Windows 7 64 bit, using a USB Flash Drive.
Another variation on the theme with my Windows 7 64 bit, using a USB Card Reader into which the SD card is inserted. In that case, I set Save In: in the export area to L: drive which represented the USB Card Reader with the SD card.
What is the capacity of your SD card?
Please let us know if that worked for you.
Of course what format you output the file as is very important -- and that depends on what you are going to do with the video on this card and what device or software you're going to play it with.
From a player point of view, isn't that true for all video on media? The player either support the file on the media or it does not.
I just would not want to see the export on the SD card going back into the camera unless appropriate.
Are you saying he's planning to load the SD card back into a camcorder? If so, DV-AVI would be a pretty unlikely camcorder format for an SD card.
That's why I say we need to find out what andrew plans to do with the file before we can tell him which format he should output, IMHO.
Thank you, I’ll give that a try. Incidentally I’m running Win 7 Pro and using a USB card reader with an 8GB SD card for experimental purposes rather than burning to a conventional DVD.
As per SG's concerns, be advised that my suggested approach was a generalized one. My choice of a DV AVI export to your SD card was not necessary meant as an endorsement of that format for your purposes. If the focus step Save In: directed to your SD card works, then it is your decision what will work for you. All was not an exhaustive study that I made on the subject.
But, I think you are on the right track when you write "...for experimental purposes...".
But, I am not sure how advisable it is to be using a SD card as a substitute for a DVD-RW disc. I would feel more comfortable using the DVD-RW disc which can be erased by the program and reused.
Add On...With your recently fine tuned description of how you want to use this SD card as a substitute for a DVD disc to save DVD disc in the burn to DVD, I do not find that works either in burn to DVD, disc or folder.
Please refer to my latest reply to Andrew.
Not pushing DV AVI or any other format. I just picked that export as a quick demo spot for the Save In: focus.
I think that Andrew got the message, especially when he writes "for experimental purposes".
But I do not know that I would use the SD card as a substitute for a DVD-RW since the DVD-VIDEO format needs to go on the DVD disc in a specific file system. I need to think about that some more. Did some double checking just to be sure...first hand, the use of a SD card as a substitute does not work for burn to DVD, disc or folder.
Your suggestions worked perfectly. Thanks very much.
