Dell makes a number of version of their XPS -- but assuming you're not using the one with the i3 processor, you should be able to edit video in Premiere Elements with no problems.
1) What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what format (MTS? MOV? MP4?)? If this video is not from a camcorder, that may be contributing to the problem and we will need to dissect your video to see what's inside.
2) Do you have Quicktime 7 installed, per the program's requirements?
3) What are your Project Settings, as listed under the Edit menu? When you add your first clip to your timeline, is there a yellow-orange "render" line above the clip? This indicates that the program is not able to match its project settings to your video specs.
Firstly, thank you for helping.
Secondly, I am running an i5 XPS 13 and have never had issues with it until now. I also do have multiple render lines in the timeline, however this video has been exported before without issues even with render lines present. This is an older vacation video and new photos/videos were given to me to add to the timeline. Prior to doing this, it was able to export without issues. Render lines, to my knowledge, have never played a factor.
There are a variety of videos shot on my Galaxy S6, which are all .MP4 files, and some .MTS files from a Sony camcorder, the model of which I do not know as it is not mine. Again, all of these files were able to export previously, but no longer do after adding the final photos/videos to the timeline. I do not suspect those are the problem.
The source of the photos are from multiple smartphones from my family, all of which had photos in the timeline previously which did export.
I did install Quicktime 7 at your recommendation, but now the video only exports as a corrupt file measuring a couple dozen kilobytes at the most. Not sure why. I did have Quicktime 7 installed previously when the videos would export. I deleted this program for some reason and reinstalled after reading your post.
The project settings as listed under the General tab include:
1. Editing mode at HD 1080i
2. 29.97 FPS
3. Display Format of 30 FPS Drop-Frame Timecode
The Video Render tab has the File Format as I-Frame Only MPEG and the Compressor as MPEG I-Frame
Again, thank you so much for your help.
Can you post a screen capture of your entire movie's timeline to this forum?
