    Premiere Elements 14 First Look Details

    A.T. Romano Level 7

      As soon as Premiere Elements 14 and its Elements Organizer 14 became available for tryout from Adobe (last night), it was download and installed on Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit (Windows 10 64 bit next) successfully. This version comes with published System Requirements which include Windows 7, 8, and 10. (Also downloaded Photoshop Elements 10 without issue.)

       

      Although there are new features which are highlighted by Adobe's What's New, there are many significant changes in the "what was" for those of us who have used Premiere Elements earlier than 14.

       

      As I do yearly, I am in the process of preparing a Premiere Elements First Look Details and a Premiere Elements Daily Discoveries blog post.

      These blog posts are for informational purposes only, and the 14 ones can be found

      If any questions on your Premiere Elements 14 workflow, please do not hesitate to ask here in the Adobe Premiere Elements Forum if the answers are not in the blog post yet.

          To those who could not get eLive in Premiere Elements 13/13.1 in their part of the world and are now looking at Premiere Elements 14, it would be helpful to know if you now have and can use eLive in Premiere Elements 14.

           

          Thank you.

            Recently a Premiere Elements 14 Mac user reported problem of "Royality Acitvation Error".

            Please see Royalty Activation failed. Please refer to  www.adobe.com/go/pre_ara_error for more details.

             

            There have been at least 2 Premiere Elements 14 users reporting this error, one a Mac user, the other's computer not yet known.

             

            Adobe Staff did a great job of responding to the issue and resolving it, pointing to permissions in the path to the ARA Folder, ..../Adobe/Common/ARA.

            See more details in the link cited above.

             

            If anyone runs into this error, please let us know so that we can keep track of troubleshooting this issue and learn if this is a Premiere Elements 14 Windows or Mac or both issue.

             

            Thanks.

              Still in the process of doing the Premiere Elements 14 First Look and Premiere Elements 14 Daily Discovery blogs. And, full details of the progress in this regard can be found in those blogs. Please see links to those blogs in the introductory post in the thread that we are in now.

               

              Last night there was some Premiere Elements 14 important news  that needed some attention drawn to it sooner than later.

               

              The evaluation of Premiere Elements 14 last night revealed that Premiere Elements 14 produced Blu-ray .iso file with file size over 1 GB does work to give an .iso file that, when applied to Blu-ray disc, can be recognized by a player. Details so far for that observation can be found in posts 15 and 17 of the following thread

              Why won't ADOBE PREMIER ELEMENTS 13 recognize a BLU RAY disc in my blu ray burner, or burn a viable ISO image that will work in a blu ray player?

              Fuller details will be included in the blog posts mentioned. The initial testing was done with Premiere Elements 14 produced .iso files with files size of about 3 GB and 16 GB.

               

              Any computer or standalone Blu-ray player information would be of interest for this Blu-ray disc to which the Premiere Elements 14 .iso file was applied with ImgBurn or other. I have only looked at the computer playback with the CyberLink player.

                Currently still exploring the new and different (in many respects) Export & Share section of Premiere Elements 14. Lots of export choices are not user adjustable or limited in that regard, and will probably be "what is" for the person purchasing Premiere Elements 14 as first Premiere Elements version ever purchase.

                 

                But, for those of us who purchase and use versions of Premiere Elements earlier than 14, it takes a bit of doing to reconcile that "what was" and "what is", especially with regard to export settings.

                .

                Hopefully today I will have the 14 "what is" in depth descriptions published in the blog post.

                 

                Please do not hesitate to post in this thread or in a new thread in this forum, if you are uncertain about what 14 export settings would be comparable to what you used in a Premiere Elements version earlier than 14.

                  Great news to report.

                   

                  In Premiere Elements 14 it is now possible to export 4K 3840 x 2160 @ 59.94 or 50 progressive frames per second, provided that you have a p60 or p50 project preset respectively and use Expert & Share/Devices/Computer/4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160.

                   

                  You could not get these particular exports in Premiere Elements 13/13.1.

                    May seem a small matter in the Premiere Elements scheme of things, but, after just about giving hope of finding an option in Premiere Elements 14 to save a Titler title, I found it.

                     

                    Complications - in 14, File Menu/Export/Title is gone, and, the Premiere Elements 14 Help PDF instructions for doing this appear to relate to 13 and not 14.

                     

                    The answer to save the 14 Titler title...

                    a. Expert workspace - create the title in the Titler workspace (Text Menu/New Text/Default Text). Close out of the Titler.

                    b. Go to Project Assets (Grid View ONLY), find the thumbnail for the title, right click it, and select Export Title.

                    c. You are on your way to saving the title as .prtl for use in other projects.

                     

                    The mystery is why Grid View ONLY and not Grid or List View to see Export Title as described.

                      Photoshop Elements/Premiere Elements 13/13.1 last available Camera Raw version is 9.0 via Help Menu/Updates. Premiere Elements 14 is being shipped with Camera Raw 9.1 which is described as the up to date version for 14.

                       

                      Item 009 in the Premiere Elements 14 Daily Discoveries blog details how to install Camera Raw 9.1 in Premiere Elements 13/13.1.

                      Others also have found this "perk" and have reported on it in the Adobe Photoshop Elements Forum.

                       

                      Reminder: Camera Raw install  enables Premiere Elements import of raw image format and dng. For opening and using the Camera Raw editing area, Photoshop Element is needed. Camera Raw version needs to support the camera used to record the raw image format, and the Camera Raw version needs to support the version of Photoshop Elements/Premiere Elements in use.

                        For those who use the Instant Movie feature in Premiere Elements 14 and other Premiere Elements versions

                         

                        Premiere Elements 14 Instant Movie theme Events/Outdoor Adventure is still flawed by colorful Media Offline displays at places in the Instant Movie produced.

                        This was written about way back in January 31, 2014, but appears not to have been fixed by Adobe for the newly released Premiere Elements 14. See the following for the details of the problem and how the user can make the theme usable.
