I'd recommend, if you want to edit those videos in Premiere Elements, that you convert the MOV files to DV-AVIs before you bring them into the program.
You can do this very easily with Quicktime Pro. You can also do it for free using Super.
Here is a thread on Muvipix about enabling quick start.
I'm pretty sure that PE4 has autoplay. It's in the advanced settings on the last tab. Go through Share, not File > Export > Quicktime.
Thanks for the link Robert. Sadly, it doesn't seem that PE4's "autoplay" option for Quicktime encoding does the trick. I plan to keep experimenting a bit, but it does seem like PE4 simply doesn't allow the "Fast Start" option.
Steve - I'm just curious here but I routinely edit 720p MOV files using Premiere Elements 3. I plan to upgrade to version 7 soon, but since I've read that V7 is mainly a debugged V4, does that also mean that I will lose the ability to directly edit MOV files with V7? If so, I will have to reconsider my plans...
Well, version 7 is much more than a de-bugged version of version 4 -- but it definitely does run much better than version 4, if given adequate RAM to work with, from all reports.
How many file formats perform in the program is more often related to how your computer is set up: What codecs are installed and how they're managed, what other programs are installed on your computer and how they interact, etc.
That's why we always say, "Your mileage may vary." No two computers perform exactly the same way.
But, if you're able to use those MOVs with no problems in a previous version, odds are definitely very good that you'll be able to do the same in version 7 also.
I wonder if PE7 can save Quicktime movies with "fast start" functionality. That would be a deal closer for getting me to upgrade.
