The time will depend on what you are editing, what effects you are using, what publish/share option you are using, the length of your video, and your computer hardware
The Elements Tutorial Links Page http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1275830 may also help
This sure does look like a duplicate question that you also asked
Please see my comments there.
What are the details of your export choice? For that matter, what version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running? Are you exporting via Publish+Share/Computer/Windows Media? Export time for those exports are somewhat longer than other choices under Publish+Share/Computer.
What is it you are planning on getting into the Elements Organizer - the export of the Timeline or the source media on the Timeline before export?
What are the details of your project, editing, and export?
I am working on a windows 8 system with premiere elements 11.
My main goal is to import videos off an external hard drive onto my
computer, edit them (trim them down, seperate into clips), and then
organize them using the albums and categories function.
My problem is that whenever I take out the external hard drive, all my
edited videos and things I thought I imported disappear and turn into a
black screen instead. I need to figure out how to permanently put these
videos on my computer.
Furthermore, even once I have edited them. I am not able to export them so
that I can move them into the organizer
I hope this made a bit more sense.
