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 that.
Some of the usual drill
1. Does problem exist with or without antivirus and firewall(s) disabled?
2. Do you have the latest version of QuickTime installed on your computer along with Premiere Elements 13/13.1, and are you running the programs as administrator?
3. Is your video card/graphics card up to date according to the web site of the manufacturer of the card or the manufacturer of the computer?
Important source media considerations...
1. What are the properties of your source media including video compression, file extension.... is your audio Stereo or 5.1 Channel?
Interlaced or Progressive
Pixel Aspect Ratio
2. What are you (manually) or the project (automatically) setting as the project preset to match the source media properties?
Please see Edit Menu/Project Settings/General and reading for Editing Mode/Timebase/Frame Size/Pixel Aspect Ratio (even if the fields look grayed out).
3. Probably the most important question, "Is the video being recorded with a variable rather than a constant frame rate?"
4. Where are these crashes happening - import, editing, or export? Is there a trend related to what you are doing in the program when the crashes happen?
You say "all videos". Do you mean all Shadow Play videos or all videos?
Let us start here and then we can decide what next. Any questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask.
I had many problems with Adobe Premiere Elements until I realised my Mac didn't have enough spec to run the software.
I would check that your machine matches the basic requirements first.
I came across a problem similar to mine on Overclockers.net. They reported crashes with adobe products on their otherwise stable prime/burntest tested Overclocks. I dropped my overclock and finally got it to work .
What did you do when you realized that your Adobe Premiere Elements Mac did not have spec to run the software? What version of Premiere Elements Mac was involved? What were those Mac specifications that limited you? Had you passed all the System Requirements for the version that you had/have?
What were the sizes of the projects when you made your conclusion about system resources?
If this is a current issue for you, please start a new thread so that we can discuss this further since I suspect that hasler74's issue and details may be going in another direction with that Shadow Play video source.
Thanks for the follow up with the great news of success. For those reading this thread and unfamiliar with overclock, I will post a quick link on the topic that I found online
Please let us know if your Premiere Elements editing and exporting quality are OK once you got the crashes out of the way...watch particularly for audio out of sync if you know your video source to have been recorded with a variable frame rate.
First video was good sound synced, and quality of the picture matched the source.
Thanks for the follow up with the additional information. Appreciated.
