Premiere Elements 12 on a Win 7 64bit machine with 12GB RAM with an AMD RADEON HD 5450 (unsure of any further details on video card).
Having a problem adding the 3700 pictures to the Video1 ribbon.
I am trying to make a time lapse video (which I have done successfully previously).
I am importing them as .jpg. Initially I tried using the full size .jpgs straight from my GoPro Hero 3+ Black.
The pics are available, but once I select them all and drag to Video1, it gives me the blue circle like it is loading...forever.
I have let it sit for over an hour. Once I try to go to any other application or click on Premiere it whites out and gives me the "...has stopped responding"
popup. I thought maybe the pictures are too large (I've done a time lapse withe 2700 pics previously with same .jpg size)
so I downsized the pics to be only 1920 x 1080 pixels (~800k/pic) and tried again. Same deal.
Is there some cache I need to clear out? Or some setting I need to change?
As I said, I have made several time lapse videos so far and four or five other regular videos w/o issue.
I'm trying to import the still pictures "Still Image Default Duration" = 1 frames.

Here are the two workflows that I have used successful for Premiere Elements and Time Lapse.
I prefer the first approach.
As for pile ups...
Check Edit Menu/Preferences/Scratch Disks for the locations and amount of free hard drive space at the location.
If defaults, expected...
Previews and Conformed Audio...Libraries/Documents/Adobe/12.0. See Adobe Premiere Elements Preview Files Folder and Media Cache Files
Conformed Video...See Edit Menu/Preferences/Media and its Media Cache Database section. Hit Clean button. Location of these .mcdb file
is found at there in this area.
For a smooth workflow, with that many images, I suggest 1920 x 1080 since no matter how high the resolution, the images will be
reduced to the specifications of the export. Yes, I know you said your prior projects of this nature were successful, but...
We will be watching for your progress.
