If you want just a section of the imported video then select that area using the workbar at the top of the timeline and choose "export work area".
Thanks for your help. In Premiere Elements 8 I had to use the Share feature which has a box labeled "Share Workarea Bar Only". It just took me a while to figure out how to set the area to be highlighted in the Work area bar. It's a very small area to pick in the Work area.
Thanks so much for your help.
You are very welcome.
PrE has shifted my "goal posts" a bit, and that is why I now point out that my images, and much of my instruction, are for PrE 4, and things have likely changed. Recently, I started typing Share/Export, to cover all bases. PrE 8 has eliminated the Export function - everything is now in Share.
Glad that you were able to read between the lines.
