    saving video


      I video tape sports (basketball right now) and it takes over 2 hours to save/render a 30-40min video...is that normal?  I'm saving it to my computer in flash format. 


      My YouTube account is set up to take longer than 15 minute videos...but PE won't upload directly because my video is too long.  Is there any way to change the default settings for uploading straight to YouTube?

          There is no way to change the Premiere Elements stated YouTube limits for the upload from its sharing area.


          You can export the Timeline to a file saved to the computer hard drive and then from there upload it to YouTube at the YouTube web site where you can ask for permission for larger file sizes/duration.


          Are you doing a DV or HDV capture firewire into the Premiere Elements Capture Window?

            Time will depend on what you are editing, and the "power" of your computer


            From the Premiere Elements Information FAQ http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1042180

            •What version of Premiere Elements? Include the minor version number (e.g., Premiere Elements 9 with the 9.0.1 update).

            •What operating system? This should include specific minor version numbers, like "Mac OSX v10.6.8"---not just "Mac".

            •Have you installed any recent program or OS updates? (If not, you should. They fix a lot of problems.)

            •What kind(s) of image file(s)? When talking about camera raw files, include the model of camera.

            •If you are getting error message(s), what is the full text of the error message(s)?

            •What were you doing when the problem occurred?

            •What other software are you running?

            •Tell us about your computer hardware. How much RAM is installed?  How much free space is on your system (C:) drive?

            •Has this ever worked before?  If so, do you recall any changes you made to Premiere Elements, such as adding Plug-ins, brushes, etc.?  Did you make any changes to your system, such as updating hardware, printers or drivers; or installing/uninstalling any programs?

            And some other questions...

            •What are you editing, and does your video have a red line over it BEFORE you do any work?

            •Have you viewed the tutorial links at http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1275830 page?

            •Which version of Quicktime do you have installed?
