Why not have both folders in the same catalogue?
Hi Bob Thanks for quick reply. Yes could do this , but we have about 20,000 pics, and it just seems a bit messy and inefficient to do it this way. I was wondering whether I was missing something obvious in how to do this and whether somebody had a more elegant way of doing it. Chris
Hi I believe it is essential to re-size still pics down to import into Premiere Elements 12 .(I make videos which are a mixture of stills and video clips, all from same camera.) .....
A couple years ago I saw an update notice for Premier Elements on my computer and watched it process. I was surprised to see that the update was ACR. I thought thought ACR was for photos, not videos. Not knowing better, I made a slide show with some RAW image files. Reading on this very forum suggested I couldn't do what I did. Trying to make a point, I made a "slideshow" type video in Premier Elements with 100 RAW images expecting my computer to crash as promised by a couple of the gurus here. It wasn't a very good slide show but nothing crashed.
Thinking there must be a reason for it, I used Lightroom to export the 100 RAW images to re-sized JPEGS and made the slideshow video over again. I could not see or feel any difference.
For awhile, I would offer my opinion that re-sizing is unnecessary whenever the topic came up. The answer was always that re-sizing is important and has to be done. It made sense to stop offering my opinion!
I continue to make video projects with a mix of clips, RAWs and JPEGs from two different cameras and don't bother with re-sizing. Premier Elements does not seem to care if I do or don't.
