I just quickly checked my project archive again. Actually every movie clip still got it's original lenght, no short clips (as I used them in the project) added! I don't really get my mistake here...
All the best,
How and what format video?
cutting down about 20GB of movie files.
New Trimmed Project in Premiere Elements is a topic for which I have done extensive work.
Are you starting with video trims trimmed in the Preview Windows with its Set In and Set Out points, and then those trims dragged to the Timeline to constitute
Timeline content that is subjected to Project Archiver/Archive Project option? To make sure we are in sync on this matter, please view the concept of "New Trimmed Project" which exists in Premiere Elements as well as Premiere Pro. See above link details.
The "New Trimmed Project" has not worked in Premiere Elements 8.0/8.0.1, 9.0/9.0.1, 10, 11, and 12. But it does in 13.
Please review and consider and then we can discuss this further.
thanks for your reply! And, wow, this seems an even bigger issue than I thought! Sorry, that I didn't find your blog while searching the internet. I just read through it and I'll try to give my best to explain my situation better. Just not so easy in a foreign language...
(Actually I installed Premiere Pro tryout version to open the session there and get better export options. But on a mac, this is not possible. Importing Premiere Elements files in P Pro only works on windows computers. Well, of course...)
So, I'm working on a mac. The video files are coming from action cams. All MP4 files (instead of 3 little already cut down movie clips), 1920x1080, 59.94 frames per second.
I only worked in "expert view" and so I trimmed the clips only in the timeline window.
I tried my best to understand your blog completely, but I guess I missed some specific details. But I still hope this is enough information for a further discussion!?
With kind regards,
Thanks for the reply and looking at my findings on New Trimmed Project in Premiere Elements using its Project Archiver/Archive Project option.
It is a difficult concept to get a hold of. You may be running against a file format that is not supported by the process. To verify that it is working
as it should, try creating a project with trimmed clips from DV AVI and then archiving that project with Project Archiver/Archiver option (Trimmed).
See if you get the results that I described in the blog post. Then using that information as the baseline, next create a project with your own source
files and compare the results with those from the DV AVI mini test run.
We will be watching for your results.
Please do not hesitate to ask if you have questions or need clarification after you have re-read the blog on this.
