    Premiere Element keep crashing in vista

      is there a way to avoid Premiere element keep crashing on Vista Home edition?

      My project has about 700 video clips and I am adding about 150 clips in the timeline and adding some transitions. I don't think I am doing some crazy editiing. However, it just keep crashing and close the application. does anyone know how to avoid it or any work around?

      Right now i have to save my project every 5 minutes to save my work, this is like going back to 70's.

          Could be due to the size of your project. It is best to create shorter projects with fewer clips... export each as DV-AVI (File>Export>Movie) and then combine them in a final master project.

            And make sure you have Vista SP1 and at least 2 gigs of RAM and that you've optimized the operating system so that you're not wasting resources.

            But Paul's definitely right. Particularly if you are editing other than video from a miniDV camcorder, your project is excessively large. The FAQs at the top of our forum tell you how to work on a large project in small parts.
