Premiere Elements doesn't work well with uncompressed AVI, David. You should use DV-AVIs, AVI compressed with the DV codec.
That said, you can export a variety of Quicktime compressions in version 4 using File/Export/Movie and going into the Settings. I don't know that photojpeg is one of the options though.
Actually, I just checked and photo-jpeg is indeed one of the codecs available, David.
thanks for that Steve, i think PE4 should sort me out.
i'm originally shooting in avchd and was told that the least degrading way to edit would be to convert to uncompressed. (the end user wants photojpeg .mov)
but what do you mean that PE doesn't work so well with uncompressed avi? do the file sizes crash the program?
Adobe recommends these programs for AVCHD conversion for working in PE4. Follow the link, in particular the link in Post#1:
I agree, Paul. The program doesn't yet support AVCHD video.
Premiere Elements uses a DV-AVI workflow. Whatever you put it is turned into a DV-AVI before the program can turn it into anything else. Using uncompressed AVI doesn't give you better quality: It just chokes the program -- and your computer.
