Program version and operating system information might help someone answer
Adobe premier elements 12 and a windows 7 Professional op system with plenty of available memory.
I do not think that there is a good guess-estimate for what you ask. Too many variables from source media formats (including SD - HD), computer resources beyond "plenty of available memory", to a lot of etc.
Define your own limits to avoid crashes and the loss of project work.
Thanks-life is an experiment.

What is the maximum length video I can create?

Thanks for the reply.
Reflecting back on your original question
I am creating my first project and am looking to find out if there any constraints as to maximum length
time wise or photo count for my project.
My reply stands as written in post numbered 3 in your thread for all intents and purposes; however, I dusted
off my memory on this one and came up with some information that I had uncovered in the past...might be of interest
1. If I took Premiere Elements 12 or 13 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit and kept adding source media to the Timeline, the
maximum total duration is 23 hours, 58 minutes, 56 seconds, and 28 frames.
2. In Premiere Elements 10, 11, 12, and 13 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit, the program allows me to import an still image
as huge as 10000 x 7500 pixels. In earlier versions, like 9.0/9.0.1 and 8.0/8.0.1, the program will not allow you to do that
and blocks you with the error message "File video dimensions (width/height) too large". No workaround. In reality, in those
earlier versions, it is the total number of pixels for the image which defines the limits (not to exceed 16777216 pixels) as I explained in this older thread.
Please see my details on that matter in post 6 of that thread.
Again, just because you can, does not mean you should.
