Much more details are needed.
Do you have the latest version of QuickTime installed on your computer with Premiere Elements 11?
When you go to Publish+Share/Computer/QuickTime,
a. Do you see a QuickTime panel?
Often the new user does not realize that there are more categories there than Adobe Flash Video, MPEG, and AVCHD. You need to scroll down the list to see the others which will include QuickTIme. The scroll bar is small and to the right of the list of choices. Another way to get up and down that list of choices is to select Adobe Flash Video so that its panel turns blue and then use the down arrow to move down the list and then the up arrow to move up the list.
b. The other side of the matter is if you do not have QuickTime installed on your computer with Premiere Elements, you are not going to have the needed QuickTime presets.
Please review and consider and then we can decide on troubleshooting strategy.
By the way, you can insert a USB Flash Drive into your computer and then set the Premiere Elements 11 Save In field of the QuickTIme export area so that the .mov file is saved to that USB Flash Drive.
I've read those. Several times. They don't help at all. My first port of call when I have an issue is Google. Google always links to those tutotiral pages. They never have the info I'm looking for. Not once. Not ever. So, I come here where I'm told to look at the tutoprial pages. It's like a moebius strip of non-information.
I have Quick Time 7. It says it's Quick Time Player. Is it meant to be somehting else too?
Yes, I have the Quick Time option on the Save and Share panel but it says for playback on a Mac and I'm on a laptop. I have no idea what the people at the other end will be playing the movie on.
I don't understand the bit about inserting the flash drive. Do you mean I can go to 'Save As'?
Also, on the save and share panel none of the file types say .mov.
There are dozens of options for saving your video as an MOV.
What do you plan to do with the MOV once you've saved it? That will determine the best output option you use.
It's being sent off to a competition. They request it's sent on a USB
stick as a .mov file. I don't have any more info than that.
This is what you are going to do.
Assuming that your project is set up correctly for import.
Insert your USB Flash Drive into your computer USB port.
In Premiere Elements 11, Publish+Share/Computer/QuickTime
Set Presets = accordingly, depends on your details
Under the Advanced Button/Video Tab of that Preset, customize the settings accordingly, depending on your details)
In the Export dialog...
Set the Save In: Browse to Computer and your USB Flash Drive and select the USB Flash Drive so that a path to it now appears in the QuickTIme Export Save In.
In the above screenshot, I have next to click on Advanced Button/Video Tab to set the Export Settings needed for the .mov file to be exported.
A USB Flash Drive with a capacity of 4 to 8 GB should do the job depending on the file size of your .mov file.
If necessary, if you supply me with details, I will confirm and/or give you exact settings.
Add On...Alternative is to set Save In: for a computer hard drive location and then transfer the .mov export from the computer hard drive to the USB Flash Drive. But, the direct Save In is cited above.
Thanks for that. That's really helpful. Sorry for the late reply - was busy
setting up and opening an exhibition.
Thanks for the reply.
Glad the suggestion was useful in your Premiere Elements workflow.
