What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
For the moment I will assume Premiere Elements 13 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit.
If you are working in the Expert workspace and had imported 4 clips, you would expect them to look like
If you are working in the Quick workspace and had imported 4 clips, you would expect them to look like
In this case...
1. I am using a project preset consistent with the properties of the source files.
2. I can alter the look by altering the Timeline zoom in or zoom out using the zoom in/zoom out slider above the Timeline.
3. In the Expert workspace, I can alter the video track display style (4 different ways) by clicking one at a time on the filmstrip ion to the left of the words Video 1.
I can do the same for the audio track display style (2 different ways) by clicking one at a time on the speaker ion to the left of the words Audio 1.
If none of the above targets your question, please consider posting a screenshot of what you are seeing and asking about.
Fast response!!! Thank you. I am on an IMac with 10.10.1
If you have Premiere Elements 10 Mac, I would expect you would be seeing the following if you imported 4 images
In Timeline workspace, the view will depend on how much you zoom in/expand the Timeline with the Zoom In/Zoom Out slider at the top right in the first screenshot in which
the first clip is selected/highlighted on Video Track 1.
When I switch to the Sceneline workspace in this case, I would see the 4 clips - first one in the first scene space of the Filmstrip is highlighted/selected
As an aside, what video card/graphics card does your computer use? NVIDIA GeForce? I ask because there is a serious known
issue with Premiere Elements 10/NVIDIA GeForce. I am not to what extend it has extended to Premiere Elements 10 Mac.
Please review and consider and then let us know if you need further information or need clarification on the above.
I have the latest version 13. The graphics on my 5 year old I Mac is ATI Radeon HD 4l850. I did discover the little slider rendering and that gave me full frame. I know I’ll have to take the tutorials now. Stupid me! Mac Life gave this program high marks for ease of use. o think my Mac is too old? It is up to date with the latest Apple OS. remier 13 seems easier to organize clips and download them than the old I Movie. Thanks again.
Thanks for the reply. Looks like I misinterpreted
your I am on an IMac with 10.10.1
I thought that you were telling me your Premiere Elements version was 10 and not 13 as I assumed. That 10.10.1 must be your Mac operating system. Sorry for the assumption.
My first impressions posted in post 1 of this thread should apply to you also even if you are using a Mac computer.
But it sounds like you are making progress. Great job.
That NVIDIA GeForce is strictly a Premiere Elements 10 one; so none of that applies to your situation.
Please let us know if you are have further questions or need clarification.
