Is your video card driver up to date according to the web site of the manufacturer of that video card, not just via Device Manager? What is the specific version number of the QuickTime that you have installed on your computer?
Please indicate what version of Premiere Elements that you are using and on what computer operating system it is running, including 32 or 64 bit.
Also, please give the full details of your export including the export settings under the Advanced Button of the preset selected.
If you reimport this purple file back into Premiere Elements, what color does it display when viewed in the edit mode monitor?
Let us start here and then decide what next.
I just installed a new nVidia driver and rebooted, so that should be fine, same goes for Quicktime.
Quicktime version: 7.7.4 (1680.86)
Premiere Elements 9 on Windows 7 (64-bit)
Settings: (my version is in Dutch so I'll try to translate as best as possible)
Quicktime > Advanced
Dimensions: 1920x1080 (full HD)
Height/width: Square pixels
Max. bitrate: 10 000 kbps
+ Still purple when imported into Premiere Elements (edit mode).
Have something for your to try, that is, deletion of the BadDrivers.txt file.
In your Windows 7 64 bit, the path to it is:
Local Disk C
and in the 9.0 Folder is the BadDrivers.txt file that you delete.
Make sure that you have the computer Folder Options Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives active so that you can see the path described.
Let us see if that has any influence on the results.
But just so that we are clear, please confirm
a. before the Timeline content, the Timeline content plays back in the Edit Mode monitor without any color problem - no purple images
b. it is only in the export that you see the purple result
If none of the above helps, could you post a screenshot of your QuickTime export settings under the Advanced Button of the preset that you have selected.
In the second screenshot, on the Video tab, the video codec in use isn't showing (you probably scrolled down to get all the settings displayed).
Which codec are you using?
Insanity is hereditary, you get it from your children.
Post #2 information says that the video codec = H.264.
That was a great find. Congratulations of your troubleshooting.
Could you please give us more details as to where the source media came from that you put on the Timeline and what its properties are besides just the file extension .mov.
Although your solution came from an Adobe Tech document for Premiere Pro, I have not seen this related to Premiere Elements before.
If you could post a MediaInfo properties readout for your source video besides where it came from, that would be extremely helpful for all to be aware of.
Thank you for that link.
The one addition that I would make, relative to the Crop Effect in PrE - Check that the values are all set to 0 for Top, Bottom, Left and Right.
In PrPro, the Crop Effect will always apply with the settings all at 0, but in PrE it does not default to 0 - and those need to be adjusted to 0.
Your report may lead to Adobe posting one of its Adobe Tech document specific to Premiere Elements and this .mov purple case matter.
So, more details the better.
