I am on attempt 7 trying to render and save a video I edited in Premiere Elements 14. I've used the quick export option and the devices option for exporting, and every time the end result is a 16MB unreadable file. I thought the problem might be from trying to export it directly to a USB drive, so I tried rendering and saving it to my desktop. This attempt worked and I have a rendered .mp4 video file that plays back just fine, however, it won't let me copy the file to the USB drive. The error is The item can’t be copied because it is too large for the volume's format. The USB is 32GB and the video file is only 4.5GB so space shouldn't be an issue. I have the video on my desktop, beautifully edited video that I can't move anywhere else.
This video is for a class assignment (now overdue), and I am the only one who is using Premiere Elements (and the only one having an issue with their video). My professor and I transferred the raw data to his computer and had success. I took the exact same steps and did not have the same luck. Is my laptop not powerful enough for this? It is a heavily edited video from the raw footage with lots of cuts and transitions. The problem at this point is that while my professor has my edited video, it was rendered using a trial version of PE14 (with a "trial version" line down the video) because his version 11 wouldn't open my project. We need a clean, rendered version so that we can reproduce it for distribution.
I'm new to this type of software, but I didn't have any trouble with this project until the rendering and exporting part.
Any wisdom on the issue would be much appreciated.
This is what I'm working with.
1.3 GHz Intel Core i5
4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Intel HD Graphics 5000 1536 MB
I can probably help you here because I ran into same issue a few weeks ago.
Your USB stick is probably formated with the FAT32 filesystem which has the limitation that the maximum file size is 4 GB.
If you reformat the stick with the NTFS filesystem that limitation will be removed.
Just in case: reformatting does remove all previous content from the stick.
Thank you! Grad school brain fry... I didn't even think about reformatting the USB stick.
Problem solved with much thanks!!!
