Also note that, if you're porting your slideshow from the Organizer's Slideshow creator to Premiere Elements, the WMV is not the best format for doing so.
Ideally you should choose the slideshow output option to Edit in Premiere Elements.
This sends the slideshow to Premiere Elements in an interchange format that, if you'd like, can be broken apart in Premiere Elements (by right-clicking on it on the timeline and selecting Break Apart Slideshow) and edited further.
tried this - when I tried to burn I got a transcoding error.
Your original thread question should have been taken care of according the Announcement at the top of this forum...that involves the removal of the Windows Update kb causing the 1/2 wmv display. Have you been there and done that? If that is out of the way, then...
Lots of details on your project to sort out, but I will ask the question "Have you put a stop marker at the end of the last item on the Premiere Elements Timeline?" If so, remove it. It is not needed and is one of the major causes for type of problem that you described in your latest post. Have you expanded your Timeline looking for left over slivers? Typically they present as very thin vertical black lines scattered about the track content.
What are the pixel dimensions of the photos that went into the slideshow, now that you are trying the Photoshop Elements Slideshow Editor Output option of Edit With Premiere Elements Editor?
What is your end product...NTSC or PAL DVD-VIDEO standard or widescreen on DVD disc? In the burn dialog for burn to DVD, what does the Quality Area show for Space Required and Bitrate? And, another classical question...if you burn to folder instead of disc for your DVD-VIDEO, does the burn to folder go to success whereas the burn to disc does not?
Let us start here and then decide further troubleshooting.
Thanks - lots of stuff!!
Have reset computer to last time I had success in burning to disc. another way to check
No stop markers. Did slide show in photoshop - saved in my videos. When I try to put them into premier is when they come out in half.
pictures are in jpeg
slideshow editor output to premiere elements get the slide show to premier, but no when I try to burn I can transcoding error.
end product is NTSC widescreen
quality - fits contents to available space.
Slide show is only 19 min. so should have plenty of room. Have tried to put it to 4 min & still doesn't go.

Once you hit Burn in the burn dialog, you can see a progress bar in that area which typically shows the sequence
When are you getting the transcoding area? Does it show a % done at the time of the error?
Also, if you expand the Timeline do you see any gaps...maybe files that are not right up against one another? Or are you seeing a lot of tiny vertical black lines scattered among the Timeline content? And transitions that gave you problems when you tried to place them between your videos or photos?
And did you ever try the burn to folder to determine if this error pops up and at the same place?
Just some thoughts for now. If you have not already, please delete that Windows Update kb to get ride of the issues with any .wmv files on that Premiere Elements Timeline.
I am still having trouble. When I import to premier from my videos I get half picture & half black. Please advise
It is likely that the offending Windows Update kb has returned.
For now, set your Windows Updates so that you require notification and your approval for any downloading and installing of any Windows Updates.
Search again for the Windows Update that you previously deleted as per the Announcement at the top of this forum. And delete it again.
After that, if you see the offending kb in the Windows Updates Important Updates, right click it and select Hide. It is supposed not to be a bother after that.
Please let us know the outcome.
