Premiere Elements 13 on Windows 7 (presumed 64 bit).....
1. Music files and error message...are these music files from iTunes? If so, convert them to .wav in iTunes to convert them to wav version, and then import the .wav version into Premiere Elements 13 project using Premiere Elements 13 Expert workspace's Add Media/Files and Folders/Project Assets from where you drag the wav version to the Soundtrack.
The following are the instructions for the iTunes converting
If any problems with the instructions, please let me know, and I will go through them with you.
2. How you set up the project and the export settings that you select greatly influence your end product result.
a. What are the properties of the source media?
b. What project preset did you (manually) or the project (automatically) set to match the properties of the source media.
(If you do not know, please tell us what you see for the readings of Editing Mode, Timebase, Frame Size, Pixel Aspect Ratio - even
if the fields look grayed out.)
c. For your export...Publish+Share/Computer/and then what? And what preset? Did you use the default settings of the preset or did you
customize the export settings of the preset under the preset's Advanced Button/Video Tab and Audio Tab?
Let us start here and then decide what next.
II'm going to try the music first then check on the other issue in a few. Thanks for your great help!
II'm at the import settings and chose " WAV encoder" and clicked ok . Do I have to reload all CDs and now?
after initially going through the process I tried to add music, but received the same response.
Ok, got the music fixed! Thanks I had to re download cd in the WAV format as suggested. Now the video quality. I am filming in 1080p @ 30fps. What settings should I use when time to export finished video editing?
Depends what your export format needs are, but an excellent choice would be
with Presets = MP4 H.264 1920 x 1080p30 (with default settings to start, should be fine)
But if you want to experiment with the settings to customize that preset, click on the preset's Advanced Button/Video Tab or Audio Tab
to get to the Advanced export setting area. One reason you might want to customize export settings relates to too large an export file size. Then
you could experiment with the bitrate in those Advanced video settings to find a compromise between bitrate, file size, and quality.
We will be watching for your results.
