You could export the Premiere Elements 10 Windows Timeline as a .mp4 or .mov file and then import that export into the Premiere Elements Mac project.
Any questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask.
Add On...same answer if situation was reversed...Premiere Elements Mac project opening in Premiere Elements Windows.
Thank you, I will try that. Guessing that is the share option and then pc..
One more question. On my pc version 10 if i right click I can merge two timeline videos so there is no gap showing in between them, on the mac version 13 there doest seem to be that option?
Thanks for the reply.
I am strictly an Elements Windows user...so...
I checked Adobe documents, and I see no mention of "Delete and Close Gap" being a Windows Only option.
I am not sure about right clicking in Mac, but does this work instead using Premiere Elements Mac....
1. highlight the clip that you want to delete
2. Go to Edit Menu where there is expected to be an option for Delete and Close Gap.
3. Click on that Delete and Close Gap. What happens?
How about the
1. highlight the clip that you want to delete or backspace key of the computer keyboard?
I would try this in the Expert workspace.
Please let us know the outcome.
Add On...for the exports, please see Share/Computer/AVCHD and its MP4 exports or Share/Computer/QuickTime for its .mov. Any questions about specific export settings, please ask, but include details of the video and the project settings so that we can select export settings consistent with your project settings and source media.
Thanks for you help.
The videos I am exporting are really old home videos (about 20 years old).. They were ripped from VHS using honesetch VHS to DVD. The raw files that were used are 720 x 576, 25 frames / second date rate 80000....
Thanks for the replies.
If you have 720 x 576 @ 25 frames per second, I would look at
For the export settings, please consider
with Presets = MP4- PAL DV Standard
with Presets = PAL DV
and, under the Advanced Button/Video Tab, set for Video Codec = H.264.
In both cases, we may opt to change the Field Order to Progressive under the Advanced Button/Video Tab, but let us see the results from the above first where the Field Order = Lower.
When you are dealing with the Share/Computer/ opportunities, remember that not all choices are seen until you use the thin scroll bar to the right of the choices to scroll down the list.
If you have questions or need to go deeper into the explanation of the suggested settings, just let me know.
Add On...if you have bitrate (data rate) values, please include units
kbps (kilobits per second)
mbps (megabits per second)
yeah I do the original ripped file was 8000kbps, total bitrate 8224kbps. the new one that was just made is data rate 2990kbps, total bitrate 3180kbps. (The new file is the same 720 by 576 size)
Thanks for the replies.
You should be able to adjust the bitrate of the export
After you go under the Advanced Button/Video Tab of the preset and select Video Codec = H.264, then scroll down to the Bitrate option. There place a check mark next to Limit Data Rate and type in 8000 in the kbps field (or whatever you want besides what you got - 2990 kbps).
Under the Advanced Button/VIdeo tab of the preset suggested, go to Bitrate area to find two settings, one for Target BItrate = 3 Mbps (megabits per second) and Maximum Bitrate = 6 Mbps. Here 3 Mbps = 3000 kbps and 6 Mbps = 6000 kbps. If you want 8000 kbps, then set the bitrate to 8 Mbps. You can explore and experiment with Target and Maximum values to obtain the best bitrate for you (compromise between quality and file size).
Great I am using option b AVCHD, have just set it to run, thanks you advice is it really easy to follow.
Thanks for the follow up.
Any questions along the way, please ask. Always lots of details to work through. But you seem to be making great progress.
Please update us on the outcome as your schedule permits.
