    encoder activation premiere elements 4.0

      Hi, to pick up mpeg file after installation, system need encoder activation. Adobe has not Service below 8.0. What can I do? Thanks !


      Auf Deutsch: Adobe Elements 4.0 forder von mir nach der Installation und des Imports einer mpegHD-Datei die encoder activation. Von früheren Installationen kam die Meldung erst, wenn ich ein Produkt auf DVD brennen wollte. Wie dem auch sei, dieses Prozedere war ja geläufig. Nun stellte aber ADOBE ab 8.0 abwärts den Service ein. Was soll ich nun machen. Mit den Rechner gehe ich grundsätzlich nicht ans Netz. Vielen Dank.

          Version 4 was introduced 10 years ago. At that time, Main Concept would activate the MPEG element as you used it.


          Neither Adobe nor Main Concept still provides this activation, as far as I know, and I don't know where else this activation is available.


          Version 4 was also pretty primitive, when it came to editing video. It was only capable of editing tape-based video from a miniDV or tape-based HDV camcorder. If you're editing any other type of video -- including video from a hard drive camcorder, AVCHD camcorder or smartphone -- you definitely want to upgrade to at least version 11.
