What version of Premiere Elements, what computer operating system?
How are you getting the Timeline Indicator back to the start of the Timeline - with the Home key of the computer keyboard? Or is this is return to start after a Timeline rendering?
If it is after a Timeline rendering, with the Timeline expanded max with the -+ slider above the Timeline, check to determine where the left gray tab of the Work Area Bar is set? Is it one frame the start?
If so, move the Timeline Indicator to the start, and, as you hold down the Alt key of the computer main keyboard, hit the left bracket key to reset that left gray tab to 00;00;00;00.
We could look at flushing the preferences, but let us rule in or out the above first.
your answer is not clear for me.
I have PREL 12, MAC with OS X El Capitan.
I am going to “start point” using left button on the bar just below monitor panel. CTI is going to the borders of clips, but when returning to the start after the first clip, the CTI gets stuck at 00.00.01. Additional click gives 00.00.00, but the CTI stays in place and a part of the first footage (one frame) is to the left of the vertical line of CTI. I can move it to the left dragging the head of CTI. But now if I click right button below the monitor panel, CTI jumps only one frame. Additional click is required to get next footage.
If to extend the time line, you can see a bar with a width of one frame adjusted to the head of CTI. It can be either to right, or to left, depending on clicking.
Holding “Alt" and pushing bracket key did affect reset of zero.
How to eliminate this one frame obstacle?
Thanks for the reply.
Since your introductory information did not include Premiere Elements version and computer operating system, I assumed Premiere Element X on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or 10 64 bit. Let us see if we can find some common ground for the troubleshooting.
If you maximally extend the Timeline with the -+ slider above the Timeline, what do you see at the beginning of the Timeline, not the Timeline content, the Timeline 00;00;00;00 since you say you do not get there, and your Timeline is starting at 00;00;00;01 (1 frame) as referenced by the position of the Timeline content.
Does it look like
or does it look like
Note that in the second screenshot the gray tab of the Work Area Bar is positioned 1 frame away from the start of the Timeline.
In the first screenshot, that gray tab is positioned at the start of the Timeline.
You should have a Home key on your computer keyboard. When you press that, where does the Timeline Indicator go - to 00;00;00;00 or 00;00;00;01?
Next we go to deleting the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs. On Mac, it should be Users/Owner/Libraries/Application Support/Adobe/Premiere Elements/12.0
Do you find it there?
Thanks for replying, but the message in the reply is missing.
Could you try again when your schedule permits.
Sorry, sending again
when I go to the start of timeline the picture looks like
(I get the work area marker at zero, while CTI at 00.00.01)
When I press the home-key I get 00.00.01
I did not understand how to find Adobe Prel 12 Prefs.
Thanks for the reply.
Has this condition with the 1 frame start always existed? Or, is this something that suddenly appeared? Do you get this will all new projects as well as project which were created before the problem (were OK then) and you are opening now with the 1 frame problem?
With the mouse cursor, can you force the Timeline Indicator to go to the left so that the time readout is 00;00;00;00?
Please consider the uninstall/free ccleaner/reinstall with antivirus and firewalls disabled route.
Add On...was the onset of the problem directly related to your use of the El Capitan operating system?
