Have you got the latest version of Quicktime installed on your computer?
Also, what is the source of your original video? What type of camcorder did it come from and what project settings did you use in Premiere Elements to edit it?
The source of the files used in the video are just images and voice. Tiff images from Photoshop, and .wav files for voice. The quicktime version I have is 7.6.4.
I'll check to see if there is a newer version now.
Also, ensure that your photos are no larger than 1000x750 pixels in size, per the FAQs to the right of this forum. That alone makes a huge difference in program performance and results!
The picture size is 720x480.
The movie worked fine when uploaded onto an iPod through an apple computer. Not this PC though.
Yes, but how large your TIF files themselves!
The biggest liability of this program is its inability to handle unnecessarily large photos.
They're usually 1.1kb to 1.4kb.
I don't think that's the problem.
As I said, the biggest liability this program has is its inability to work with unnecessarily large photos. If you're using more than two or three TIFs that are 1 - 1.4 megs in size, you're using photos over twice as large as they need to be, and that could well be contributing to your problems.
But they're not 1.1 megabytes. Just kb.
Maybe the fact that I'm using somewhere between 16 to 25 tiffs that are 1kb each?

1.1 kilobytes? What are your photo's dimensions (measured in pixels)? You may have the opposite problem -- too LITTLE resolution!
According to my math, 1.2 kilobytes gives you a photo about 400x300 pixels -- only about 1/4 the size of a video frame.
But, in any event, you should have no problems loading 25 of them into a project (at least on a decently powered, non-laptop). They'll just produce a very pixilated video image!
Oh God. I'm so dense sometimes. You're right, they are 1 megabyte. I don't know why I thought they were 1 kb. Sorry.
So, that's probably the problem then? Would it be more efficient to use the images as a jpg, png, or gif?
Your photos need to be no larger than 1000x750 pixels. You can see the size and resize the photos in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
The picture files themselves are 720x480. We were able to transfer two of them to iTunes just fine. It's just so random.
The files are 720 x 480, tiff, about 1.25 megabytes. Plus wav files. Converted into a mpeg-4 movie file for iPod, the total size is around 30 megabytes.
When I took out the tiff files and used GIF files, they were 720 x 480, about 35kb for each gif image. Plus wav files. And total size is about 26 megabytes.
Is that too big for an iPod? Because I know you can put actual movies on an iPod touch and they work. Unless those are smaller than the actual movie I'm trying to transfer.
I just don't understand why a couple of the files worked, and the others just won't...when they're basically the same.
Sorry, and thanks for the help.
Sorry, exot, but I don't see any reason things aren't working for you.
I do not know what the specs. are for the iPod Touch, but for the iPod Video 3, here are the specs. for it:
• 2-inch (diagonal) liquid crystal display with white LED backlight
• 160-by-128-pixel resolution; 0.24-mm dot pitch
• Support for display of multiple languages and characters simultaneously
This might help you. You should be able to get the exact specs. for the iPod Touch, should they differ. This came from the Apple iPod Web site.
