This definitely does seem to be epidemic lately, Tony! I wonder if it's related to a Windows update or Quicktime.
By my count, two for the video fix with at least 2 GB available RAM and 1 where the video fix did not work.
Besides the available RAM and video card specifications, maybe we should include request for Windows and software updates. I seem to remember iTunes and Quicktime being updated recently. But as we always say, problems can present with the same symptoms, but have difference causes. So, the search goes on for the appropriate solution for a specific situation.
Looking forward to learning how this issue turns out.
THANKS the link that adviced to uninstall the NVidia PhysX &Nvidea Steroscopic 3D Drivers worked ....for how long who knows but at least I'm unstuck! Mine only had the Steroscopic 3D part so that is all I uninstalled. Now I just need to go back and install them from the web.
Thanks for reporting back the good news. You say you have 4 GB RAM. For Steve Grisetti's poll on this issue, what is the available RAM (what you have alotted to Premiere Elements)? I suspect it is at least 2 GB like the others.
Keep up the good work and thanks for trying the valuable fix contribution of cyberioten.
If any further developments on this issue, please post them in this thread, unless Steve Grisetti, the forum moderator, suggests otherwise.
It looks like the count for the video card fix for the transition issue is at least 3 YES, 1 NO. I would like a recount on that "1".
I see that the Ram is 4G but I have no idea how to allocate a specified amount to PE4....how much would you recommend and how would I do that? Thanks for your help!
I am just a Windows XP SP3 type person and have never tried the following, but this is how I think it goes for you Vista or higher people, using the BCDedit Tool.
You would click on the Command Prompt under Start/Program/Accessories. (You need to be in a User Account with Administrative Privileges for this to work.)
So, if you have 4 GB RAM installed, you could allocate 3, 2, or 1 GB.
If you wanted to allocate 3 GB, you would type in bcdedit /set IncreaseUserVA 3072
If you wanted to disable that, you would type in bcdedit /deletevalue IncreaseUserVA
If you wanted to allocate 2 GB, you would type in bcdedit /set IncreaseUserVA 2048
If you wanted to allocate 1 GB, you would type in bcdedit /set increaseUserVA 1024
If your system is working fine now, I would leave it alone unless your computer is experiencing memory problems.
It goes without saying that if you have 4 GB, you are not going to allocate 4 GB or if you have 3 GB, you are not going to allocate 3 GB, etc.
There are several technical details on the use of the BCDedit Tool at the Microsoft web site.
Maybe Hunt or one of the other users who has actually done this and can confirm my details or straighten them out.
I am also on XP-Pro SP3, and know almost nothing about Vista.

You need to be running 64-bit Vista to fully access the fourth gigabyte. 32-bit Vista can only access (around) three gigabytes of memory. For more info http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=vista+32bit+3gb.
