Welcome to the forum.
First, what version of PrE are you using, and then, on what OS version?
What are the specs. of your Source Files, i.e. the Clips on the Timeline?
What are the specs., to which you are outputting?
There are several threads on Position being changed, when using MPEG Source Files, or outputting to MPEG.
The more info, that you can provide, the easier it will be, for folk to assist you.
The bottom line is probably in your choice of export settings for the project settings and source media properties that you are using.
Please detail these areas and everything should fall into place.
Just post the details
Premiere Elements version, operating system
Source Media Properties
Premiere Elements 10, windows 7, .wmv, and I have it 1280 by 720 but that isn't working and id like it to be in hd
The key to this is going to be in a combination of details....
Please confirm since I am not sure of what you wrote....
a. Premiere Elements 10, Windows 7 (probably 64 bit), OK on that.
b. I am trying to figure out what your project preset is in the new project dialog of this project? The space in the Edit Mode monitor is going to be determined by that project preset.
What are the properties of what you are dragging to the Timeline?
d. Are you saying that the file imported into the project has a .wmv format or that you want to export to a .wmv file?
I think that I can put this together for you, but I need the details to fit into the equation.
