More later in the morning. But just leaving you with some things to check out.
In Premiere Elements 12, the render indicator system is
You are getting the best possible preview, no rendering possible since you already have best preview
no colored line over Timeline content
green line over Timeline content
You are not getting best possible preview, rendering possible
orange line over the Timeline content
Above the Timeline is the Work Area Bar with two gray tabs. Those tabs need to span the whole content to be rendered. Are your gray tabs of the Work Area Bar doing that? If not, move them to span the content to be rendered. Keyboard shortcuts are
Alt + [ for the left gray tab at the start of the content
Alt+] for the right gray tab at the end of the content
If none of the above factors into your present situation, you might want to post a screenshot of your Timeline setup in the Expert workspace of your Premiere Elements 12.
That did the trick. Where does one find this information as I did not see it in the manual?
Glad the suggestions worked for you.
If one does not find what they are looking for in manual or even books, then the online forums, like this one, can draw on the experiences of others. The user to user route is a great resource. Exploration and experimentation are major tools in navigating the learning curve.
If you are interested, I have have a blog (free, no ads) where I document my first hand exploration and experimentation with Premiere Elements as video editor. Of immediate interest might be ones on
