    Premiere elements 11 preview jumpy all formats

    HMilstein8

      It took a year to bother to find out what is wrong. Finally got disgusted enough. Any video file (usually dvd or download from online source) when editing and monitoring work flow, the video barely moves and staggers and will not even play through the file....WITHOUT ME HAVING TO RENDER...every time! This is getting ridiculous. The program will not allow a smooth rendition of my work flow on the monitor screen. Any ideas why? (mpeg2, mp4 avi...all staggering and no flow through)

          What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 11 running on?

           

          When you are playing back your Timeline content in the Edit area monitor, does that Timeline content have an orange line over it during that playback.

          Screenshot is to point out that I am not referring to the orange line that runs horizontally across the clips (rubberband), but rather the orange line above the Timeline content.

           

          After Timeline rendering to get the best possible preview of the Timeline content in the Edit area monitor, do you then get a playback that is

          satisfactory?

           

          Key questions needing your answers

          1. What are you (manually) or the project (automatically) setting as the project preset to match the properties of your source media?

          2. What are the properties of your source media?

          3. In your typical projects, is your Timeline composed by mixed formats?

              Thanks for the reply. Please clarify

               

              You wrote

              playback is ok ONLY after rendering ; AFTER render, if I play back

              again....it is staggered and jumpy

              There are two type of "render"

              a. rendering as in Timeline rendering which is for preview purposes only

              and

              b. render as in export where file are encoded.

               

              If you do not or cannot set the project correctly, you will get an orange line over that Timeline content. That is the

              program telling you that you are not seeing the best preview for what you have in the Edit area monitor. So, you

              render Timeline content. And, playback is OK. We need to do some work to make sure you are setting the project

              preset correctly in order to get rid of that first "render me" alert. Keep in mind, even if you have a Timeline rendered file,

              once you edit it, the "render me" alert returns in the form of the orange line above the Timeline.

               

              Not clear on "....AFTER render, if I play back again....it is staggered and jumpy". Here are you saying that what

              looked OK in the preview in Edit area did not look good in viewing the export from that Timeline? What player did you use?

               

              Now here are the details we need to zero in on

              a. What are you (manually) or the project (automatically) setting as the project preset to match the properties of the

              source media? If you are not sure, please see readings for Edit Menu/Project Settings/General and Editing Mode,

              Timebase, Frame Size, Pixel Aspect Ratio - even if they look grayed out.

              b. What are the properties of the source media - video audio compression - frame size - frame rate and interlaced or progressive -

              file extension....?

              c. When you did your export, please detail Publish+Share/Computer/ What and preset....did you use the preset's defaults or

              did you customize the preset under its Advanced Button/Video Tab and Audio Tab?
