This is not Adobe. This is the Adobe Premiere Elements user to user forum that you have reached by posting your thread. So, we do not have
any letters that you may have sent to Adobe about your Elements 11 questions.
What do you record with your miniDVD camcorder - DV standard (4:3) or DV widescreen (16:9). For now let us assume DV standard (4:3).
Open Premiere Elements 11 Expert workspace, go to File Menu/New/Project and Change Settings.
In Changes Settings, set the project preset to agree with your source (in this case DV standard (4:3) - so you select
Before you get back to the Expert workspace, in the new project dmake sure that you have a check mark next to "Force Selected Project Setting on this Project".
Then do Add Media/DV Camcorder to get your DV data as DV AVI standard on the Timeline of your project for editing.
When you are ready to burn to disc, then
with preset set at PAL_Dolby DVD.
Have you gone through those details to produce you PAL DVD-VIDEO format on DVD disc?
Let us start with the above and then decide what next.
Add On...do not worry about the language....we will overcome any language problems as well as Elements problems...if you do not understand anything that I write, just let me know, and I will re-write.
Please continue your comments in this thread so that we have all your information in one thread. You have now started a new thread to continue
the discussion already started.
You need Premiere Elements to burn to disc. Photoshop Elements cannot be used by itself to create the DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc that will be
required to DVD player.
The way that you set up your Premiere Elements project influences how the end product will look like.
So we need to go into the details of what you are doing.
Did you set up your project as I have suggested and did you get the same pixelated end product when viewing it on your player?

Hello Again. we
can easily burn a DVD, but when we play it on
a BLUE RAY player picks the
sound & picture
pixilere why does
it do that ?? & Then it stops COMPLETELY playing DVD disc
?? can you tell us whether we PHOTO SHOP
ELEMENTS can create a safety burning ??
SO we avoid the
picks the sound
& picture pixilere
Again, easily enough to burn to DVD, but you must setup the project (import, edit, and burn to)
correctly to get the best results. The information that is needed to setup the a project includes
a. properties of what you are putting on the Premiere Elements timeline
b. project preset that you select
d. burn to details
When you use a program such as Premiere Elements 11 often you have to set the project preset yourself
rather than let the project do it for you.
Please go through the workflow that I posted in post 1 and let us know if you get the same pixelated results when
you view your DVD-VIDEO on DVD with your player.
What did your mini camcorder record
DV data 4:3 Standard
DV data 16:9 Widescreen
Did you do instead HDV data capture firewire into Premiere Elements 11?
Again, the end results (good or bad) are influenced by how you set up the project.
So, if you recorded DV data 4:3 Standard
Did you set the project preset to PAL DV Standard and use Add Media/DV Camcorder before you started the firewire capture?
If you recorded DV data 16:9 Widescreen
Did you set the project preset to PAL DV Widescreen and use Add Media/DV Camcorder before you started the firewire capture?
If you record HDV data,
Did you set the project preset to PAL HDV HDV 1080i25 and use Add Media/HDV Camcorder before you started the firewire capture?
If your input into the project situation is bad, that must be made good before we get to the burn to disc matters.
As a control, can you do a capture firewire from your miniDV camcorder into a program such as Movie Maker without the type of issues that you are having with Premiere Elements 11?
Please consider and let us know if our comments are being understood.
Hello: My camcorder is brand SONY & is from about years. 2003, we assume that my camcorder is set to record in 4/3 format ?? how we look on the camcorder I have records in 4/3 format ??
You have the camera, so look in the user manual or the screen menu on the camera itself to see which options you are using
If you have have a Sony miniDV camcorder and you recorded with the 4:3 setting, then this is what you do to get the DV data from the camcorder and into your Premiere Elements 11 project.....
You will be putting PAL DV AVI 4:3 on your Timeline......
1. Open Premiere Elements 11 to the Expert workspace.
Go to File Menu/New/Project and Change Settings.
2. Under Change Settings, set the project preset for
3. After you do that and click OK, you will see the new project dialog.
Make sure that you have a check mark next to "Force Selected Project Setting on This Project" and
then OK to get back to the Expert Workspace.
4. In the Expert workspace, go to Add Media/DV Camcorder and follow the instruction to begin
your DV data capture firewire from the camcorder to the computer/Premiere Elements Capture Window.
5. When you go to create your PAL DVD-VIDEO 4:3 on DVD disc, then use
with the preset for PAL_Dolby DVD.
If you go to burn your 4:3 Timeline to 16:9 (for PAL DVD-VIDEO Widescreen or Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc),
then we need to talk some more since it is not good going from 4:3 source to 16:9 end product without further
Please read the above and let us know if that is the information that you need to move forward with your project.
Susie Mylov has already given us this information when written miniDV camcorder and 4:3.
