Adobe rarely issues updates for its Elements line of products. There are no updates for version 4.
Your video also has unusual dimensions, which may be related to your problems. What type of camcorder did this video come from and how did you get it into your computer?
I can't remember where it came from, but converting it was a technical
challenge. It is either an Apple iPod movie or a Sony PS3 format. It had a
video of AVC format and an audio track of DTS format in a Matroska envelope.
As you said it's a rare bird. I got the first 2 GB converted using Super
2007 and the settings I use may have limited the output size. I was just
converting the video and not the audio. I'm doing it over using an unusual
conversion tool called Alltoavi, which from the artwork in the skin of the
product is primarily used by fans of Japanese anime. I tried upgrading the
AVS convert utility from version 2.7 to version 6, but it said after I
installed it that it is shareware with a cost of $49 and the program still
neither knew what to make of the envelope Mkv or the avc file in it. There
is an incentive program to update Adobe Premiere Elements 7? Would it be
able to handle more formats and sizes of Bluray source files (not encrypted
of course). paj692
It's hard to say, since you don't know the source of the video or if it is a true AVCHD file.
Version 7 can work with true AVCHD but is not able to work with other hi-def MP4 formats, including AVCHD Lite.
