Adobe includes in its list of 13.1 Update features
ISO image creation for disc burn failures
There is a known issue in 13 related to file size of the .iso image produced in the 13's burn to ISO Image. This was pointed to by Juergen and elaborated on by me in
This known issue to which I refer is the lack of player recognition for AVCHD on DVD or Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc when the disc is created in ImgBurn using a Premiere Elements 13 ISO Image with a file size greater than about 1 GB.
Tonight I looked at this matter in 13.1 Update to determine if this situation was fixed in the 13.1 Update and if this related to the "ISO image creation for disc burn failures" mentioned by Adobe in its document describing briefly the 13.1 Update. This issue was found to be the same in Premiere Elements 13 and 13.1.
So, it is uncertain at this time just this "ISO image creation for disc burn failures" is all about. More information to follow.
For those who are still using Elements Organizer 13 on Windows 8.1 64 bit and are getting no sound from AVCHD.mts files (Dolby digital 2 or 5.1 channels) in the Elements Organizer 13 player, then please consider updating 13 to 13.1
We have found in Windows 8.1 64 bit...
AVCHD.mts Dolby digital 2 channel or 5.1 channel, no sound in Elements Organizer 13 player.
AVCHD.mts Dolby digital 2 channel or 5.1 channel, now sound in Elements Organizer 13.1 player.
Please let us know if you found the same.
A 13.1 description fuller than the original Adobe document on the 13.1 features appears to have been published on February 13, 2015 by what is described as
"team of writers that maintains Help and user-assistance content for Adobe products across multiple domains, including Creative Cloud, Marketing Cloud, Acrobat, the Elements family of products, Technical Communication Suite, mobile apps, and more".
Of special interest was the explanation fpr the ISO Image feature in 13.1. Basically it sounds like an special "Auto Save" as ISO Image for failed burn to Blu-ray.
I still have not found the disable pan and zoom for the new Video Story feature. This February 13, 2015 article shows a screenshot for it. I will take another look.
There is a disable pan and zoom option for the new Video Story feature after all. Although the dialog showing its existence was shown in the document cited in the previous post, the route to get there was not.
Here is what I found...After opening Video Story feature and selecting a theme and feature assets, I will subsequently get to the section Story Assets where I drag the assets into individual Chapter spaces. After that is done, I click Next which results in "Processing". After the "Processing" is completed, I get a view for "Detail View". I needed to switch from "Detail View" to "Overview" to see a layout of all the Chapters, each Chapter having options which included Edit Chapter.
a. In the Overall view, I went to the Chapter of interest and clicked on the "Edit Chapter" button at the bottom of that Chapter display.
b. The first screenshot displays what I saw after hitting "Edit Chapter". When I brought the mouse cursor in contact with the picture of interest, the blue icon pointed to in the first screenshot appeared. And, when I double clicked that blue icon,
I am presented with the display where I can change the pan and zoom options for one or all.
Please see second screenshot below.
Any way to just directly add to the Frequently used panel?
Interesting question. The bottom line is the easiest way to do that is to use the choice 3 times, and it will automatically appear in the Frequency Used Panel.
Did you have a chance to read about the details behind Frequency Used Panel in
If not, please do.
One example...video transitions...every time you make a choice of transition that count information for transition usage for each transition goes into one .dat file, in this case the .dat file is named FrequentlyUsedTransitons,dat. The usage count there for each transition starts at 0, and once it gets to 3, that is when you see a copy of that transition thumbnail placed in the Frequently Used List of transitions within the project. You have brought this about from the project side of things. You used the transition 3 times in the project.
So, then I got the bright idea to go to the Notepad document of the FrequentlyUsedTransitions.dat file and change the 0 to 3 for a given transition on the list there in order to get that transition to be shown within the Frequently Used Panel within the program (without having actually used the transition in the project 3 times).
It did not work.
I will think about this some more in the morning morning. Right now, its use the choice 3 times go get the program to include it automatically in the Frequency Used Panel.
Add On...I decided to try one more maneuver...remember my editing of the Notepad document of the FrequentlyUsedTransitions.dat did not force the appearance of a transition in the Frequently Used Panel within the project, but.....if I left my count change in the .dat file at 3 for a transition that I had never used in the program and went back to the project, I needed to use that transition only once, not 3 times, to trigger its appearance in the Frequently Used Panel within the project.
