We are not Adobe. Rather user to user. We do not have insights on how Adobe chooses to represent supported formats.
All that being said, I have a test for you to carry out to find out if your issue is specific to your "tga" or to all.
Assuming that you have 10 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit.
Local Disk C
Adobe Premiere Elements 10
and in the Common Folder is a group of tga files that Premiere Elements 10 uses.
Make a copy of the bg_frame.tga file and paste it to your computer desktop.
Open Premiere Elements 10 and try to import that file from the computer desktop into a Premiere Elements 10 project
using Premiere Elements 10's Get Media/Files and Folders.
Does it or does it not import into Premiere Elements 10?
Looking forward to your results.
I created a .tga still image file and saved it on my desktop ; Premiere Elements 10 is able to import it. I did the same (as by your suggestion) and it works fine ( see attachments) .
Maybe this is a nice subject for the forum to debate about and exchange each others experiences whether or not importing/opening .tgs files with Premiere Elements 10 is possible
I am using a 32 bits Windows XP Pro by the way.
But, like I mentioned in the beginning , it seems to be a Dogwaffle issue for saving a still image sequence in ,tga (komma) and not .tga (period)
Thnks for your response !
Thanks for the reply.
Am I correct that your issue resolved when you changed your file name to use a period instead of a comma immediately before file extension?
I have not come across any instances where comma before the file extension (instead of period) has been supported in Premiere Elements for any
format be it tga or jpg or mov or other. I work from Windows computers (XP, 7, 8, or 8.1). And, if I take Premiere Elements out of the matter and put a ,tga instead
of .tga on the computer desk, it is asking what program to use for opening this ,tga. I have not found such a program, not even Photoshop CS5.1 extended which
will easily open .tga (with the period before the file name).
