Sandgrass-Saved files of Prel 13 projects will not open in Prel 13. Is there any way to reclaim/alter these files to where they will open? Could there be a missing codec?
My computer—Hpe 580t, Win 7 Professional 64-bit OS with second internal 1 TB hard drive;
Intel R Core, TM i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07 GHz, RAM 9.00GB
All of my clips and stills were taken on my Nikon CoolPix P500. They will import just fine from PSE organizer or from Prel 13 organizer and I can edit just fine. The trouble seems to be when I attempt to open the saved project files for further editing or adding movie theme and scene markers for a 54-minute movie.
I have tried opening from within Prel 13 and from the stored files on my Data Drive E:. Prel opens the project and tries to load; then an error msg appears: “Premiere Elements has stopped working. Windows will close the program and let you know if a solution is found”, or an error message says "Cannot open:---this file is not compatible with Pre"l. Only one copy of several edited and rendered copies of the project will open, and I am very afraid to touch it until someone can maybe suggest a solution. I tried saving copies of the one working file, but none of them will open. Thank you for your assistance. Sandgrass
I am having this same exact problem, and getting the same "Premiere Elements has stopped working...." message. I am sorry to see no one ever replied. Did you ever find the reason for the error message? Were you ever able to open the file?
