    combining projects in premiere elements 13

    Mary Lou Frost Level 1

      I have created 2 short projects in the software on a Mac.  Each project is saved separately.  How can I combine them into one longer project?

            Premiere Elements 13 Mac.

             

            Please export the Timeline content of project 1 to an .mp4 file with export settings consistent with the project settings of projects 1 and 2.

             

            Open project 2 with project preset consistent with properties of the project 1 export, and import the export from project 1. Export the total Timeline content (export

            from project 1 + the original content of project 2) to the end product.

             

            Please let us know if you are OK with those details. There is a ClipMate copy/paste insert between Premiere Elements projects but

            ClipMate is a Windows Only product.

              Where will I find the "import" and "export" commands in Premiere Elements 13?

                Premiere Elements 13 Mac...

                 

                For importing media into the project, in the Expert or Export area, you go to Add Media and select the appropriate choice for your situation.

                For exporting your Timeline content, in the Expert or Export area, you go the area designated Publish+Share/ and make your choices and subchoices.

                What do you want to do? If you post some details of your source and how you would like to export it (to file saved to the hard drive or to disc), I

                will post information specific to your case.

                 

                Have you explored the Expert Guided or Quick Guided lessons in the program? If not, please click on Expert and Guided and review some of the

                lessons to determine if they are a help or not.

                  I accidentally found a solution.

                   

                  I had a longer and shorter media section of video taken of monkeys in Florida.

                  I "shared" the short section as an mpeg video.  With the longer project open, I was able to drag the mpeg video file into the project through "drop files here".

                   

                  It worked and I temporarily solved my problem.

                   

                  I will follow your directions to gain a better understanding when I am under less pressure.

                   

                  Thanks.
