It's most likely that no version of Premiere Elements will work with that cam, rich. For one thing, no version of Premiere Elements is equipped to work with 24p.
Your best bet would be to upgrade to Premiere Pro -- even it's a not-current version.
Well i've already pulled the files into Elements, cut them, and exported something. I was only messing around so havn't fine tuned a workflow for optimum quality, processing etc.. but Elements certainly reads and renders the files. I'll admit I was somewhat surprised.
Can't argue with success, Rich! Glad it's working for you.
That's not my main issue though. The key question is should I expect to be able to use Mojo as a plugin in Elements 8? It works in Elements 3 but not in the demo of 8 that I have downloaded. Is there anyone using Mojo in 8? If so can they offer guidance on how to get it working OR would we expect it to not work in 8? in which case I'll give up and stick with version 3.
I'd contact Red Giant and check on the compatibility with PrE 8, and also your OS. There might even be info on their Web site, regarding compatibility.
I've noticed that several popular plug-ins did not work in PrE 8, or PrPro CS4. Many developers are working on these compatibility issues, so it might take an update and time.
Do you get any error messages before the app crashes? If so, can you let us know what you're seeing?
If you're getting [..\..Src\Clip\MasterClipFactory.cpp-361], I may be able to help...

Here's something for you to try. In C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements 8.0\Plug-ins\Common\EffectPreviews\ make a copy of one of the pngs. For example, make a copy of AE.ADBE AECrop.png, and rename the newly created file to "AE.ADBE MagicBulletMojo.png".
This should satisfy Premiere Elements' requirement that a thumbnail preview be preset for each installed effect. If Magic Bullet Mojo were officially compatible with Premiere Elements, the thumbnail would need to be installed be the installer, but hopefully this is an easy workaround.
Thanks for you help. Creating a preset Thumbnail for the preset seems to get it accepted by Pre8 and clicking on it does not cause the previous error message. However after dragging the preset onto a piece of media the application seems fine for about a second and then, having applied the effect to the preview image, crashes out briefly showing this message on screen...
..before then closing the DOS window and presenting the Adobe 'report your crash' dialoge. It all happens so quickly I actually had to use some screen recording software just to see what was in this window.
Any ideas on how to progress? It's worth restating that the Plugin works in Pre3 that is running on the same machine so it can't be a hardware or spec issue. Clearly Pre8 is doing something odd.

Hmm... If you're interested, you could try following the recommendation in the warning. To do that, you'd need to set an environment variable in Windows.
1) On Vista, right-click on My Computer and choose Properties
2) In the left sidebar, click Advanced System Settings
3) In the System Properties, Advanced panel, towards the button click the button Environment Variables
4) In the Environment Variables, System Variables section, hit the New button
5) Set the Variable name to KMP_ALL_THREADS, and the Variable value to something higher than 32, say 64 or even 128.
6) To start using the environment variable, log out of Windows and back in.
I'd be interested to know if this helps.
It's true that Premiere Elements is probably doing something differently here. But from the error message, this also has to do with the Intel OpenMP library that Red Giant Mojo is using for multithreading. http://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/showthread.php?t=48981 So it seems to be a result of the mixture of all three pieces of the puzzle.
Long term, probably the best thing would be to make a request to Red Giant Mojo to look at officially supporting Premiere Elements.
This works, I'm onXP but the setting is the same and, set to 128 as a value, Mojo now runs happily in Pre8. The only thing not working now is the loading of presets. In Pre3 when I load the Mojo preset file i get this...
..but in Pre8 I get the Mojo line inserted in the list but no drop down icons indicating each preset...
If you've got a solution to this I think we'll have it cracked. And I'll be upgrading to Pre8 and buying Mojo.
Nice! Glad to hear that worked.
Are these presets installed by Mojo, or are those your own creations? If installed by Mojo, you should be able to see the Mojo preset file(s) alongside the built-in factory presets at:
Adobe Premiere Elements 8.0\Plug-ins\en_US\Effect Presets\
Just copy any Mojo preset files from your v3 installation to the v8 installation.
Awesome! Sounds like you'll be producing some beautiful video with those tools. Enjoy!
