What type of AVI files are they? PE7 plays best with DV-AVI files. If you are not sure download GSpot and it will tell you codec used for the AVI.
Thank you for the response.
I downloaded from the above URL and found out that the CODEC is YUY2. So is this the problem?. Do I have to convert this into a different CODEC format to get better output from PE7.
Yes. Unfortunately, that's a pretty challenging codec and I'm not aware of any free converters for it.
If your camcorder is a digital 8, you should be able to capture your video over FireWire directly into Premiere Elements. The video will come in as DV-AVIs and they should edit easily.
Thank You I will try that
I have had a similar problem with sony dvd cam.Trying to read old files which were in ima format. accidentally I found the same files stored as MPEG, but Prel El 2 could pick up the files with clarity.
I have found a freeware site winff.org which converted the problematic MPEG files to DVD files with great success.
Error in last message ....should read Prel 2 could NOT read with clarity.
