          What is inside that MOV wrapper?


          Codec & Format information, with 2 links inside to read -read both links in reply #1 http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1270588


          Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... A screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing

            First thing we need to do is to know the properties of what is being imported, so that we can set the project preset beforehand.


            From what I have read of your camera, I think that you have H.264.mov 1920 x 1080 @ 30 (maybe 29.97) progressive frames per second.


            If that is the case,


            1. You need to have the latest version of QuickTime installed on your computer


            I have never taken the time to determine if QuickTime Pro is necessarily a substitute for that requirement.


            2. Transfer the video from your camera to the computer hard drive.


            3. Set the Premiere Elements 10 project preset for (assuming PAL for now)




            DSLR 1080p25


            4. Import your video from its hard drive save location into Premiere Elements 10 project, using the program's Get Media/Files and Folders.


            Have you done all that and not been successful in doing so?


            If problems, then please supply more details


            a. How you are importing your video into Premiere Elements

            b. Define what is not working and any error message(s) associated with the issues.


            Thank you.




            Add On....What video card is your computer using?


            Add On...Correction made after original post...frame rate should have been written as 25 progressive frames per second and has been corrected to that.

              The Olympus TG1 is using H.264 video compression with the .mov file extension (wrapper format).


              That information can be found online in multiple places.

                  I will try to find a sample from your brand/model camera from online source in order to test the sample in my Premiere Elements 10 to see if I get the green video. I would not expect that of what is described as H.264.mov. I am not sure if we can invoke some sort of Olympus proprietary video codec here.


                  If I cannot find a sample online, would you be able to provide a download of a sample via a link here?


                  You might want to download and install the free codec utility named gspot in order to get a readout for Video and Audio/Codec, Name, and Status.



                  More tomorrow morning.


                  Thank you for the follow ups.

                    I found a sample video from your brand model camera and have tested it in my Premiere Elements 10 on Windows 7 64 bit.


                    The sample that I test

                    AVCHD video compression

                    .swot audio compression

                    .mov file extension wrapper format

                    1920 x 1080 @ 29.97 progressive frames per second


                    I set the Premiere Elements 10 project preset =




                    DSLR 1080p30 @ 29.97


                    I imported the video (saved to my computer desktop) into the project via the program's Get Media/Files and folders. What I imported had the gspot readout out as show in the following screenshot



                    This video on the Timeline displayed with perfect video and audio at play back in the Edit Mode monitor. No green video.


                    Since you are using Premiere Elements 10, I believe that we need to focus on the video card, especially if your video card is from NVIDIA. If so, the answer may be to roll back the video card driver version rather than to assure that you have the latest video card version. Please check out the following



                    We will discuss this further in the morning.


                    Thank you for all the helpful information supplied.




                    Add On...I am not sure if there is any merit in replacing QuickTime Pro with the "regular" QuickTime latest version.
