    Adobe Premeire Elements 14 upgrade

    Scitech Level 1

      Trying to get this message to ATR, but I welcome anyone's advice.

       

      Thanks for all of your advice and help in the past.  I'm now in the process

      of building a new PC running Win 7.0 with 64 Gigs of RAM, i7, a Wacom

      tablet, etc to improve my photo restoration and video transfer business.

      You helped me in the past with using Adobe Premiere Elements 11 in setting

      up the correct aspect ratio. I was using a telecine machine and

      transferring 8mm film to DVD. I'm considering upgrading to Adobe Premiere

      Elements 14. Do you know of any issues with aspect ratios etc, if I

      upgrade?  I know sometimes when you upgrade, you run into unexpected

      problems.  Any advice is appreciated.

       

      Thanks,

      Dennis

          You wrote

          How true.

           

          Please look at the free 30 days tryout of 14 before any thoughts of purchase.

           

          I have gone back and re-read your previous thread Need advice for post production of regular and super 8mm film

          Consequently, I have just deleted much of what I just posted as a first reply to your thread.

          We are going to need some major rethinking of settings strategy if you are starting with those 1280 x 960 4:3 files and heading for DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc.

          In the prior thread, our destination was DVD-VIDEO Widescreen on DVD disc.

           

          So, please confirm

          a. Will you use those 1280 x 960 files as your source?

          b. Can you accept an end product as DVD-VIDEO Standard on DVD disc, instead of DVD-VIDEO Widescreen on DVD disc?

           

          Thanks.

            ATR,

             

            Thanks as usual for your helpful quick reply.  Great advice for downloading

            a Trial Version of 14.  I will do that, as soon as my New PC is built.  As

            for the tablet, my intent was to only use it for Photoshop Elements - not

            for Premeire.

              Dennis,

               

              Thanks for reply.

               

              When you are ready, we need to confirm and discuss your source properties and the end product to be sure that we get the right 14 project and export settings for your source.

               

              If you ever do decide you need the Wacom or one of its devices instead of the mouse for Premiere Elements, we might be able to identify some Wacom settings to minimize problems. That came up a while back so I would need to dust off my recollection for that situation.

               

              Best wishes

                I'm trying to follow your advice and download a trial version of Premiere

                Elements 14 to make sure everything works as needed before I upgrade.

                However, when I try to download I keep getting these type of messages:

                • 5. Re: Adobe Premeire Elements 14 upgrade

                  Scitech

                   

                  Thanks for the follow up.

                   

                  As fate would have it, I have just downloaded and installed the tryout version of Photoshop Elements 14 and Premiere Elements 14 on Windows 10 Home 64 bit without problems.

                   

                  So, I have an immediate first hand view of the situation.

                   

                  1. What type of messages are you getting? At installation - If it is about the installer, just click Ignore. It happens each time for me and is meaningless.

                   

                  2. At download, remember you need two files the Akamai one which does the extraction for the program files and the program.exe itself.

                   

                  Please confirm at what stage and what step the message appears and what it says.

                   

                  I am going to be calling it a day. I will revisit your thread in the morning morning and we will work that download and install of the 14 program to success.

                   

                  To be continued...

                    ATR,

                     

                    Thanks for the help.  I'm installing a 64 bit version on Windows 7.

                    I sent you the error messages in the previous email.

                     

                    I'm able to download Akamai, but it is only downloading one file.  I get a "success" message for the Akamai download, and then it stops there.  No photoshop Premiere file.

                     

                    Can you send me the URL from where you download the file, at least that will eliminate that variable.

                    Which browser are using to download?  I have been getting a header to large error when using Chrome.

                     

                    Thanks,

                    Scitech.

                      Just in case message - you select either Premiere Elements or Photoshop Elements for the tryout download, get one of them installed completely and go back to the download page to download and install the other product. Right now we will focus on getting the Premiere Elements 14 tryout.

                       

                      1. After the Akamai is download and installed, if you do not see some activity, look to the taskbar at the bottom of the computer window...do you see a window that needs to go from minimized to maximized?

                       

                      I used the tryout download from the Adobe web site.

                      tryoutpage.JPG

                      Please consider. And, then we can decide what next.

                       

                      Thank you.

                        you recommended for downloading Premiere Elements.  I will try again

                        this afternoon when I get home.  Currently at school molding 8th grade

                          Thanks for taking another look at that download and install of the Premiere Elements 14 tryout.

                           

                          Disclosure...last night in my Premiere Elements Photoshop Elements tryout downloads, keeping track of those dialogs (that seemed to gravitate to the taskbar) and the "ignore" for the installer were considerations.

                           

                          We will be watching for follow up as your schedule permits.

                           

                          Best wishes for great day and success with the tryout install.

                            the country - not the fastest download speeds.  I will check the settings

                              I'm ready for your help. Version 14 does look different from 11.  To

                              refresh your memory, I'm bringing the 8mm video into the computer from a

                              Tobin Strobe Transfer (TST-8) High Definition Telecine machine.

                              The video comes in with the need to crop the frames.  You can actually see

                              about a frame and a half.  So, I'm trying to use scaling and cropping to

                              fill the screen as much as possible.  The final outcome will be burning the

                              video to a DVD for customers.

                               

                              I'm open for suggestions.

                              Last time you suggested these settings since I'm starting with square

                              pixels.

                               

                              NSTC/FLIP

                                Flip Mino and Ultra 2.97p

                               

                              Next click on monitor to bring up bounding box with handles and drag to

                              fill monitor space.

                               

                              Export as 1280 x 720 16:9 using Publish+Share/Computer/AVCHD.

                               

                              I don't see those exact export settings in 14.

                               

                              If it would help, I would be glad to drop a 1 min 47 sec video sample that

                              I took from the telecine machine in a google drive or drop box folder.

                              This way you can directly manipulate the video and let me know what looks

                              best.

                               

                              Thanks again for your willingness to help.

                                Please send the sample video via Dropbox, and as soon as it arrives in your thread, I will road test the sample in 14 for import, editing (scaling details), and export. That Expert & Share area is "different" than what you are used to in 11's Publish+Share. You just have to search out what you need.

                                        Results of DVD Test:

                                         

                                        Just tested the settings.

                                         

                                        DVD looks fine.  Here is what I used:

                                         

                                        Preset: AVCHD LITE 720p24

                                         

                                        Export - DVD / STD 480 (720 x 480)

                                         

                                         

                                        The only concern I have is the original 8mm frame rate is 16 fps.

                                         

                                        The output for this export is 24 fps.  I really don't notice the

                                        difference, but I wondering if it will make a difference to a customer.

                                          First about Google Drive...

                                           

                                          1. Go to Google Drive - Cloud Storage & File Backup for Photos, Docs & More

                                          and click on the "Go To Google Drive" tab in the middle of the screen.

                                           

                                          2. In the My Drive page, click on the red tab "New" and, from the drop down menu, select File Upload, Open

                                           

                                          3. Right click the file's thumbnail and select Share.

                                           

                                          4. At the top right of the Share dialog that appears, click on "Get Shareable Link".

                                           

                                          5. Then copy the link under "Anyone with this link can view" and paste it in a reply in your thread.

                                           

                                          Next about your burn to DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc.

                                          Expert & Share/Disc/DVD, with that 16:9 project preset, you will get a DVD-VIDEO Widescreen on DVD disc (720 x 480 16:9 at 29.97 interlaced frames per second).

                                          If it looks good to you, it will look good to the customer who will not know if the DVD was produced from p24 source or not. Only problem might be if the customer has an old set up with no adjustments for 16:9 widescreen.

                                          But, if they where pleased with what you sent them from the earlier version, they should be OK now.

                                           

                                          Please consider and then we can decide what next.

                                           

                                          Sounding good.

                                              Thanks. I now have the sample file saved to my computer.

                                               

                                              Before I start working on this....

                                              a. What is your target export .m2t file or burn to disc DVD-VIDEO Standard or Widescreen?

                                               

                                              You are starting with MotionJPEG.avi @ 16 frames per second 1280 x 960 4:3.

                                               

                                              What did you finally go with for you for this project with the previous version of Premiere Elements?

                                              I need to go back and re-read your earlier thread. But, I want to make sure of the present situation.

                                               

                                              Thanks.

                                                Glad to hear you got the avi file.

                                                 

                                                Target export is DVD widescreen, since I believe most customers today have

                                                wide screens in their homes.

                                                 

                                                You may need to look over the old thread but I believe we used this:

                                                 

                                                1280 x 720 16:9 to 740 x 480 Widescreen.

                                                  Just a mini update on my progress....still working on this from your original 1280 x 960 4:3 that you sent. It looking like this is destinated for DVD-VIDEO standard 4:3 on DVD disc rather forcing it to DVD-VIDEO widescreen 16:9 on DVD disc. I have a few more video maneuvers that I want to try and compare 14 to 11.

                                                    Thank you.  With the settings I was using, I just grabbed the handles and dragged the image to scale it larger so I could fit one frame in the monitor window.  Didn't need to crop.

                                                      • Open the project to the Expert workspace, and go to File Menu/New Project and Change Settings.
                                                      • In Change Settings, set the project preset to the project preset given above. OK out of there.
                                                      • In the New Project dialog that opens, rename the project and make sure to have a check mark next to "Force Selected Project Setting on This Project". OK out of there.
                                                      • Back in the Expert workspace, import your source media using Add Media/ choice.

                                                       

                                                      With or without the Default Scale to Frame Size disabled at this point....

                                                       

                                                      After your 1280 x 960 @ 16 frames per second is dragged to the Timeline, scale it so that the image is just filling the 1280 x 720 space in the Edit area monitor (no black borders). Let me know how you do with the scaling. I found more not as easy as in 11.

                                                       

                                                      In the Edit area, you might consider applying Time Stretch with Speed % 80 to determine if it makes a difference in the playback in the end product DVD-VIDEO Widescreen on DVD disc. Other edits, as indicated.

                                                       

                                                      At burn to disc, go to Expert & Share/Disc/DVD and SD 480 720 x 480

                                                      a. check mark next to "Fit Content to Available Space"

                                                      b. make sure Type = Disc....it defaults to ISO so, if you want Disc, double check the setting before burn.

                                                      c. the 16:9 project preset that we have selected will assure NTSC_Widescreen_Dolby DVD even though it is not represented as it was in 11.

                                                       

                                                      You can use the same approach in 11. The project preset will be the same 11 vs 14...the Publish+Share of 11 is set up different than Expert & Share 14.

                                                       

                                                      If you need an intermediate for this, consider an additional burn to ISO Image (4.7 GB) which you can take to disc when you want using ImgBurn.

                                                       

                                                      Please let us know the outcome.

                                                       

                                                      Thanks.

                                                          Adobe discontinued DV and HDV capture firewire into the Premiere Elements capture window starting with Premiere Elements 13/13.1.

                                                          Removed features and unsupported file formats | Adobe Premiere Elements 13

                                                          The feature has remained gone in Premiere Elements 14.

                                                           

                                                          Adobe did suggest some workarounds in the above link. Also, programs such as WinDV and HDVSplit can be used for the captures and then the captures imported into Premiere Elements project with the project's Add Media/Files and Folders/

                                                           

                                                          So, it is Premiere Elements 12/12.1 which is the last to have that DV and HDV capture firewire feature.

                                                            You suggested a value of 80%.  Why 80%?  If I want 30fps to be changed to

                                                            16fps (speed of original 8mm film) wouldn't I use 53%?  16fps/30fps = 53%.

                                                              In the sample video a woman held a baby and, toward the end of the video, she bounces the baby on her knee.

                                                              That 80% set in the existing project settings seem to be the optimal point where it did not appear that the woman was over bouncing the baby.

                                                               

                                                              If you explore other Speed % settings for other projects with other videos (same type as sample), please see if that 80% seems optimal for all.

                                                                  200% - every 2 frames become 1

I roughly (very roughly) detoured into the Edit area with major thought of Edit area monitor scaling and not really any editing embellishing at this time.

                                                                        They are like the sample file I sent you..  I'm now working on each individual file per the instructions you provided.

                                                                        The other option is to bring them all together at once as avi files, edit them and then burn.

But, Lagarith.avi (lossless) would seem a better choice for an intermediate product.

                                                                                  I tried burning and Premier Elements 14 locked up.  I did some research and one suggestion was to turn off hardware acceleration.  I did that.  Still locks up.

                                                                                  It locks up at 4% when burning.

                                                                                  I am using a menu with scenes, background music, and looping animations.

                                                                                  Do you have any suggestions where I can start troubleshooting?

                                                                                  Thanks in advance.

                                                                                  Below is the settings you suggested when burning.

                                                                                  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                                  At burn to disc, go to Expert & Share/Disc/DVD and SD 480 720 x 480

                                                                                  a. check mark next to "Fit Content to Available Space"

                                                                                  b. make sure Type = Disc....it defaults to ISO so, if you want Disc, double check the setting before burn.

                                                                                  c. the 16:9 project preset that we have selected will assure NTSC_Widescreen_Dolby DVD even though it is not represented as it was in 11.

                                                                                  You can use the same approach in 11. The project preset will be the same 11 vs 14...the Publish+Share of 11 is set up different than Expert & Share 14.

                                                                                  If you need an intermediate for this, consider an additional burn to ISO Image (4.7 GB) which you can take to disc when you want using ImgBurn.

                                                                                    2. Depending on the outcome of "1", then try burning the project to DVD-VIDEO widescreen on DVD disc with no Timeline markers and no menus.
