    Convert PE12 to WVM


      I am new to PE. I read how that I can export to many file types on Adobe Websit, but I cannot find out how to do it. I gone to share, its not there, I gone to File Project save and saveas its not there, I went to Expert mode, but it was not there (there was an export on the file menu grayed out, and it only would export part if it would work). By the youtubes I have watched it seem at least PE9 it could easily be done.


      I got Windows Movie Maker for free and at least it can be saved to a WVM file. Not good quaility, but it does work.

          Can we assume that you are running Premiere Elements 12 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit computer. I will assume that for now.


          After you set up the Premiere Elements 12 project correctly, there are numerous export choices, export to file saved to the computer hard drive as well as burn to disc (DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc, AVCHD format on DVD disc, and Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc).


          In Premiere Elements 12, the exporting is the section of the program named Publish+Share.

          The choices under Publish+Share are

          Private Web Album

          Social Websites




          Mobile Phones and Players

          You need to explore what is there and what you want to do.


          Let us focus on the Computer choice. Under Computer, you will find

          Adobe Flash Video





          Windows Media




          Many do not see beyond the first three in the Computer list, because they need to use the scroll bar to the right Adobe Flash Video to see the rest in the list. Another to get at the rest of the list without using the scroll bar is to select Adobe Flash Video so that its panel turns blue. Then use the down arrow key to move down the list.


          In Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1, the exporting area was named Share. In version 12, it is called Publish+Share. You should have no problems. In 9.0/9.0.1, you had the Timeline view and the Sceneline view. In 12 the counterpart workspaces are Expert and Quick. You can be working in either of these or Guided Expert or Guided Quick. Try to stay with the Expert workspace since I believe you will see better what you are doing and thus have more control over your projects.
