    Red line above the time line

    freedog69

      How do I get it so after initially importing my video the line above the time line will be green instead of red.  It stays red until after I render the whole clip.  I am importing my video clips from my camcorder.  How do you determine the correct project settings if that is the issue?

       

      Thanks

          How do I get it so after initially importing my video the line above the time line will be green instead of red.

           

          Not possible as worded. If you have the correct project preset, there will be no colored line over this Timeline content.

          If you do not have the correct project preset, there will be a red line over this Timeline content.

           

           

          What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?

           

          If you are talking "red" line, then you must be working with a version of Premiere Elements earlier than 11. Assuming that....

           

          If your project preset matches the properties of your source media, then, when you bring one of those files to the Timeline, you will get no colored line over the Timeline. But, after that, after you edit that content, a red line will appear. That is when you render the Timeline content to turn the line green.Thereafter, that original content will never revert to the no colored line status as you work through editing that project. It will just go through the red green color indicator system.

           

          No colored line and green = the program telling you that you now have the best possible preview of the Timeline content when viewing it in the Edit Mode monitor playback. Red line = the program telling you that you do not have the best possible preview of the Timeline content and, if you want that, then you can press the Enter key of the computer main keyboard to make that happen.

           

          What are the properites of your source media...

          video and audio compression

          frame size

          frame size

          interlaced or progressive

          file extension

          pixel aspect ratio

           

          What brand/model/settings camera provided you will the source media for the Premiere Elements 10 project.

           

          Form that information, I will suggest to you the appropriate project preset. Depending on what you have, Premiere Elements may not have a project preset to match your video properties. Some programs have a feature which claims to help you select the right project preset.

           

          The information requested above will help me to help you to define you situation in term of your source media and the most appropriate project settings.

           

          Looking forward to your follow up.

           

          Thanks.

                Thank you for the helpful details. Here are my suggestions for your consideration to determine if they work for you.

                 

                Premiere Elements (any version) allows only one project preset. And, that project preset should match the properties of the source media, especially if you do not want to see a red line over its content when it is first dragged to the Timeline. When you have more than one format, as you do, the priorities need to be set. But you are not going to escape the red line over the content of video with the different format than the first.

                 

                What do you want to do? Use each in a movie of its own? Or, use both sources in one movie?

                 

                1. If the Panasonic HV-720 (1920 x 1080 @ 29.97 interlaced frames per second is to be used in a movie of its own

                a. Project Preset = NTSC/AVCHD/Full HD1080i30

                b. Share/Online/YouTube with preset = High Definition Video for YouTube - 1920 x 1080.

                 

                Note: When you bring this video into the Timeline with this project preset, you should not get a colored line over its Timeline content (until after you edit it).

                 

                2. If the Canon (1440 x 1080 HD anamorphic 16:9 @ 29.97 interlaced frames per second is to be used in a movie of its own

                a. Project Preset = NTSC/AVCHD/HD1080i30

                b. Share/Online/YouTube with preset = High Definition Video for YouTube - 1920 x 1080.

                 

                Note:


                There is a YouTube preset for 1440 x 1080, but I prefer to use the 1920 x 1080 one to avoid the use of the 16:9 flag which stretches the 1440 x 1080 to 1920 x 1080 for display after encoding. You could try both if you like.

                 

                When you bring this video into the Timeline with the project preset cited, you should not get a colored line over its Timeline content (until after you edit it).

                 

                3. Now if you are using both in the same movie, I would select

                a. Project Preset = NTSC/AVCHD/Full HD1080i30

                b. Import the Panasonic footage - no colored line (until after edit).

                c. Import the Canon footage - red line over content, render

                d. Share/Online/YouTube with preset = High Definition Video for YouTube - 1920 x 1080.

                 

                Please let us know the outcome. If you need clarification on any of the above, please do not hesitate to ask.

                 

                Thank you.
