    Downloading more transitions on Premiere Elements 13

    keving44853532

      Is there anyway of downloading more transitions, effects, texts and titles and etc... as I've just bought premiere elements and it's hasn't given me many options with transitions and everything?

       

      Also, why are the clips on the timeline detached from one another? (not a major, just off putting from the older premieres)

       

      Thanks

              I suspect that you are in the Quick workspace of Premiere Elements 13. The Quick workspace does not have all the assets that the Expert workspace has.

              But, I am going into a fuller description below to give you an overview of the what is regarding Premiere Elements 13 content.

               

              On what computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 13 running? Have you updated 13 to 13.1 yet using an opened project's Help Menu/Updates? If not please do so?

               

              I ask about the operating system, since Premiere Elements Mac typically has less content than Premiere Elements Windows.

               

              I could understand if you said that you did not like them all, but, for you to write, not many options has me concerned about what you have run into

              a. Quick versus Expert workspace

              or

              b. Some serious download and install issues

               

              In the Premiere Elements 13 Content, Expert workspace, you should expect

                Just as I suspected...you are in the Quick workspace. Please switch to the Expert workspace for the full content.

                 

                I did not see your reply with screenshot until after I posted my post 4.

                 

                We will be watching for your update.

                 

                Thanks.

                Add On...As a Mac user (as I can see from your screenshot), you may not have all the content as does the Windows user, even in the Expert workspace.

                On example is  keying effects were the Mac user does not have Chroma Key, Green Screen Key, Blue Screen Key. We can discuss that further if that is of interest.

                    There are several items that are Windows Only.

                     

                    In another forum, the following were the items not found in Premiere Elements Mac
