What computer operating system is involved?
What are the properties of these 48 clips (stills and video, just one or the other)?
How complex is the Timeline structure, and what effects are you applying to this clips - lots of stabilization reduction?
Are you exhausting the virtual as well as the physical memory (RAM) in all this?
Please supply more details.
Operating System is Windows 7 Ultimate
The 48 clips are Full HD (AVCHD) videos from my Canon XA10
The Timline structure is very simple: one clip after the other with video + audio fade in on the first clip and video + audio fade out on the last clip.
No additional effects or transitions are applied to the clips. No stabilization reduction.
I prepared this project to use it as a starting point for generating Instant Videos with different parameters. As I am new in Premiere Elements I want to find out what Instant Video does. After generating an Instant Video I never save the project but do an undo to restore the initial status.
The physical memory is exhausted, if the virtual memory is exhausted, I do not know, because this happens so quickly, that it is not possible to investigate what happens exactly
I get the message from the OS that there is not enough memory and I should kill Premiere Elements 14, but there is not enough time to do so before the problems occur. In most of the cases the project remains partially loaded, sometimes the system crashes.
Thank You for help
Thanks for the reply.
Have you used the free Process Explorer Sysinternals to determine what is happening to the memory, physical and virtual. If you add column Image Type, you should be able to verify that the application is 64 bit and not 32 bit.
Also, if you took 48 jpegs (1920 x 1080) to the Timeline instead of the 48 video clips, do you get a low memory message?
Thanks for the follow up.
following your advice I analysed the system and found out, that I could
solve my problem by increasing the space of virtual memory.
I never before worked with a program, that needed so much memory as
Premiere Elements 14 does, so I did not expect that increasing the space
of virtual memory will be necessary.
Even my Promiere Pro CS4 worked perfect with the smaller virtual memory,
although I managed projects with hundreds of clips and 1 hour length.
Now Premiere Elements 14 works stable with the above mentioned project,
but I am wondering, what will happen, when I start working with bigger
Thanks for help
Great news that the adjustment of the computer's virtual memory has resolved your computer memory issue.
Great job of analysis and follow through.
We will watch for further developments for your future and sometimes larger projects.
