Premiere Elements 13 is supported by Windows 8 64 bit? What are the computer resources for your computer?
What are the properties of the source media that you took into the project and what was your project's project preset
that you set (manually) or the project set (automatically) based on the properties of the first file dragged to the Timeline?
(Please refer to Edit Menu/Project Settings/General and the readings for Editing Mode, Timebase, Frame Size, and Pixel
Where is the poor playback - before or after the export or both?
Lots more questions, but let us start here and then decide what next.
Ok Romano, let me try answer the questions (I apologise to you for my mistakes). Abobe Premiere Elements 13 (APE) is supported by Windows 8. My notebook has all resources required by Adobe. The source media that I took to project is formed by files M2TS (1440 x 1080). The songs that I used are: M4A and MP4 (here I changed the suffix manuallly). The project set automatically based on the properties of the first file dragged to Timelines. The poor playback is only after export (computer AVCHD - M2T H264 1440 x 1080p). My last information: I created the same film (same project) on another PC (Windows 7) using a trial version (APE) and I got good results. Thank you for your attention.
Thanks for the additional information and background on your Premiere Elements projects.
Here are my suggestions for you to consider when you revisit Premiere Elements 13 on Windows 8 64 bit.
a. Music. Actually take your iTunes music into iTunes to convert them to .wav version. And, then import the .wav version
into the Premiere Elements project.
b. If you have a 1440 x 1080 HD anamorphic 16:9 source at 29.97 interlaced frames per second, then you (manually) or the project (automatically) set the project preset to
However, when you go to export the Timeline content, then you select an export choice which uses 1920 x 1080 16:9, not 1440 x 1080 which depends on a 16:9 flag to stretch the 1440 x 1080 to 1920 x 1080 for display after encoding.
with preset M2T - H.264 1920 x 1080i30 or MP4 - H.264 1920 x 1080p30.
The missing ingredients in this include frame rate of the original and frame rate for export. Also NTSC or PAL. I have assumed NTSC for now. Curious about the settings used in Premiere Elements 13 tryout on Windows 7 64 bit that you used for comparison to the Windows 8 64 bit results.
Looking forward to your results.
Add On...Does your camera allow you to record 1920 x 1080p30?
