Hi, this windows 10 is it an update from a previous version of Windows (7 or 8) or is it a clean install?
This 1 hour long mp4 what is its origin?
The three minute video is this mp4 also?
This is a new computer with Windows 10 pre-installed. It has 8 gigs of memory. I don't believe it has a separate graphics card memory.
The one hour video was shot on a $60,000 Red Dragon camera. The videographer edited down a three hour video using Adobe Premiere on the Mac and sent me his edited video in MP4 format so that I can edit in either Premiere Elements or Sony Movie Studio.
The three minute video was originally shot on a prosumer camcorder in native AVCHD. It was edited in Sony Movie Studio and uploaded to Vimeo. I lost the original AVCHD video in a hard drive crash. The video I am trying to edit was downloaded from Vimeo. I only need a few seconds of video and a little more of the audio.
When I add the 59 minute video to the project, only eight minutes shows up. I tried inputting all three videos into Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13 and they all played without any issues. If I have to, I can edit in Sony Movie Studio. That program, however, has an issue with my screen resolution that requires a workaround where I have to reduce the screen resolution. I purchased Premiere Elements in hopes of being able to do the edit with this program. I am putting together a simple book trailer composed of 3d animation, still images, and interview video.
Just for testing, to find out it its the program or the footage:
Do you have some regular avchd footage to drop in the timeline.
Part of the book trailer is a 3D animation. I had a sample Mpeg movie of the animation. I started a new project and loaded the mpeg movie first. Played with no problems. I then loaded the three minute MP4 video. It loaded and played with no problems. I then loaded the 59 minute MP4 video, It loaded and played with no problems. I did a few simple edits and everything seems to be working fine now.
The first time I tried this I imported the files from the organizer. Perhaps that was the issue.
Could be the organizer.
Just double click in the Project Assets window to import the footage.
Lesson learned. Thanks for your help.
Just wanted to clarify a doubt. Is the issue solved after removing the organizer intervention? does double click work fine?
Everything works now.
After working on my book trailer for several days, I had to go off to my real job. When I got back, I loaded up my project to resume the edit. Right away the video started freezing every few seconds. WTF? I closed and restarted. Same damn thing. I can't get through five seconds of video before it freezes. What the heck is going on here? This is ridiculous. A video editing program that doesn't allow you to edit video! This is beyond frustrating. Absolutely nothing changed from the time I last saved the project when it was working to several days later when I resumed the project.
Can you the properties of the clips you are using in the project with Mediainfo in treeview.
Not sure if this is what you're asking for, but here is a screen shot. Note that the Scott Kennedy interview is actually 1:08 long and not 38 seconds. I have no idea why it doesn't show the correct length.
Here is more info on the three source files.
I realize that there is an issue with differing image sizes, frame rates, and audio formats. However, I was able to work with all three videos without any problems for several days. The project properties are 1920 * 1080; frame rate of 24; audio format 48 hz. The Hoot video with an image size of 640 by 360 I downloaded from Vimeo. I lost my original video in a hard drive crash. The original was 1920 * 1080. I only need about ten seconds of that video. As a test I just tried starting a new project with the Hoot video. I tried playing just that video in the clip trimmer and played without freezing. So I tried a new project with the Scott video. It played without freezing. When I was having the freezing problem and I tried this it froze on both videos. So now both videos play without freezing. So next I tried to load the book trailer project again and it played without freezing. The ten seconds of the Hoot video looks just fine scaled to 1920 by 1080. So I am obviously confused as to why it freezes sometimes and other times it works fine.
