What version of Premiere Elements, what computer operating system?
Generalizing for now....computer 1, archive the project with the Project Archiver and its Copy Project option.
Then transfer the resulting Copied Folder to USB Flash Drive for the transfer to computer 2.
On computer 2, open the Copied Folder, right click the project file inside it, select Open With, then the version of Premiere Elements.
Please consider, and give more details.
Thank you ATR,
I am using Premier Elements 14 and it is installed on both computer #1 (MAC) and computer # 2 (WIN 7). I have created the project on computer #1 (MAC) and I have it opened on computer #2 (WIN 7) but the media files and not showing. I did also move the folder with the files over to (WIN 7) but I have not tried the Project Archive and its Copy Project option. I can try that.
Thanks for the very important troubleshooting information.
You cannot open a Premiere Elements Mac project file in Premiere Elements Windows. And, you cannot open a Premiere Elements Windows project file in Premiere Elements Mac.
This applies to all Premiere Element versions.
You would have to export the Premiere Elements Mac project Timeline to a file saved to the computer hard drive and then import that export into Premiere Elements Windows.
Please consider, and let me know if I have understood what you tried to do.
The file does actually open in WIN 7 no problem and it actually brings up the timeline and the audio file is present. The slides are in place on the timeline also, but the slides all say "Media Files are offline" and they are all red in color. It seems like the program is looking for the media files. I just do not know where to have the program look.
It is unheard of that Premiere Elements Mac project file opens in Premiere Elements Windows.
If this were some innovation specific to Premiere Elements 14, I suspect that I might have heard of it before. (Even though I am strictly an Elements Windows user.)
Are you running in a Windows mode in the Mac computer with Premiere Elements Windows installed?
If that were not the situation, rather Windows to Windows or Mac to Mac, I would suggest reconnecting the project with its source media by pointing the media offline files to the locations where you know they are. You can use the "Where is the file _______?" message for that to respond to the specifically name file being looked for by the project.
In the situation that you describe, it will be interesting to learn of the results using the Project Archiver/Copy Project way for the transfer.
Please clarify your situation with regard to computer 1 which you are describing as a Mac computer with Premiere Elements 14 Mac installed.
