The Premiere Elements 11 Help PDF
You might want to keep the following link around in case you have older versions of Premiere Elements and need the Help PDF.
Thanks AT. I think I'm grocking the program conceptually pretty well but getting lost trying to find precisely how to accomplish things. These kinds of things are not well addressed in video. A good manual would help me avoid having to keep the forums busy with these detailed how-to questions. I will check out the linked documents.
I think you should do well with the Help PDF.
I have found that Premiere Elements involves a continuing learning process for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced user. Take the best of all worlds as your learning tools. Exploration and experimentation are important. Your own creativity can help you to mold that "what is" into something that works for you and is not in the "good manual" to which you refer.
I would not have any hesitation about asking for detailed how tos in forums. You are actually doing a service. For in that Q&A, we all learn.
What are you finding most difficult in getting accomplished in Premiere Elements? I have not gone back to check the 23 posts you have attributed to you. But, I will if it would help.
Thanks for the reply.
Thanks for your encouragement and advice. As not much more than a beginner with video editing, I am finding Premier Elements to be conceptually rather straightforward. Actually creating my first video, however, seems to be another step entirely. There's more to get my head around than I had expected. That's not necessarily a bad thing. There is just alot here made to look deceptively simple by the clean UI and user friendly functionality. I'm sure all this leads to more creative options. I've gone through a couple of video courses but I think I'll buy a book or two as well, if primarily for ideas and reference purposes.
With respect to my prior posts, I'd be grateful if you would have a look at this question: http://forums.adobe.com/message/5850138#5850138. Otherwise, there is no need to go back through them but I appreciate the offer. I think I'm good with the rest.
Along with the linked Help documents, this forum's MOD, Steve Grisetti, has a series of books on Premiere Elements (and also on Photoshop Elements, plus a few other programs), available from his Muvipix.com Web site: http://muvipix.com/pe12.php I believe that all are available via Amazon.com.
For each version of the program, I always pick up his book on it, and find them extremely helpful, well-written, and feature rich. For advanced editing, he also has a Cool Tips & Tricks book, but I do not know if it has been updated to more recent versions - I have the one basically for PrE 10. However, as most of the material in that is conceptual, even if the mechanics have changed slightly, it would still be very useful.
I found the solution.
Thank you for answering.

I saw your thread
and was going to dig into it, but then got detoured. It looked like more than I am used to.
We can continue this discussion in the other thread, so I will just mentioned details that I was going to ask about (just in case I get detoured again.)
a. Are you saying that you have a live feed of video and audio going into Premiere Elements? If so,
what did you set as the project preset beforehand so that it would match the properties of your source media.
b. What are those properties of your source media?
c. I do not know if I can do a live feed of video and audio from camera into Premiere Elements, but I could give it a try. What is the connection type and what do the connections look like?
If I am correct in my understanding of what you are doing, can you get the video and audio in sync if you import the video and audio files after recording.
I suspect most of what you are seeking is advanced and are less likely to be found in the typical books available. So, if possible, you might want to preview books before purchase. There are not inexpensive.
Yes, I took his course on Lynda.com. Will check out his books and website.
Thanks for checking out the course, Billy!
