In Premiere Elements 12 and other prior versions of Premiere Elements, if I had a clip of 149 frames (from video or still) and played it back in the Edit area,
a. the gray tabs of the Work Area Bar typically automatically spanned the duration of the clip
b. at the end of Timeline playback, the Timeline Indicator would stop "in the black" in what could be designated the 150th frame (the first frame of the next clip if there were a side by side clip). The following Premiere Elements 12 screenshot is intended to demonstrate the point
Now with Premiere Elements 13, doing the same thing I get about 90% of the 149th frame and about 10% black area next to it
for this "150th frame". Please refer to the next screenshot of Premiere Elements 13 tryout workspace.
The attempted remedies
a. if I use the arrow key to go back to the 149th frame and then use Alt/right bracket key ] to reset the
right gray tab, same as before...it takes about a 4 frames in set of the Work Area Bar right gray tab
before I get the playback ending without the 10% black.
b. alternatively, if I use the arrow key to advance the Timeline Indicator by 1 frame to get a "black frame" ending, reset
the right gray tab using Alt/right bracket key ] , then the playback of the clip ends in black on the 152th frame, not 151th, mark.
Deletion of the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file or the whole 13.0 Folder in which it exists does not resolve the issue.
And this is an end of last Timeline clip syndrome whether there is 1 or more than 1 clip on the Timeline. A Windows 7 64 bit
computer was used. Project Preset was set manually for NTSC DV Standard, but was seen when the project set the project
preset for other than NTSC DV Standard.
Has anyone seen this in the Premiere Elements 13 tryout or the purchased version of it?
Thanks for any confirmations or explanations on this.
Please see current post of adam relating to this Premiere Elements 13 new (different) Work Area Bar behavior.
The suggestion in adam's post is that what we are seeing is an unexplained new display feature within the program
that is not seen in the export.
Still looking into this.
The answer to my question seems to be that the Work Area Bar Area Behavior in Premiere Elements 13 that I observed in Windows 7 64 bit is by Adobe design and not a glitch.
Today PRE_help in another thread confirmed this information.
We can confirm that this is not a bug. This is only a visual indicator that you have reached the last frame. As correctly noted, this is only during preview and is not there is in the exported output.
Thanks. Thread Answered by PRE_help.
