    Cannot see DVD Templates in PE 3.0

    ramblin reck

      I am running PE 3.  I go to the Create DVD View and select the Templates icon on the left side.  The templates screen is blank.  I opened three different projects and in all three when I go to Create DVD the template screen is blank.

       

      Any sugestions?

       

      Thanks.

          Reck,

           

          Do you have the DVD Templates in their folder on your system? In PrE 4, they are located in the \\Premiere Elements\DVD Templates, and then within a dozen, or so, sub-folders, and will be mostly PSD files, with PNG previews. Not sure where they are installed in PrE 3.

           

          Good luck,

            Last time I made a video, about ten months ago, the templates were there.  I know because I used one of them.   Figured I had accidentally hidden them.  I even tried opening a new project but the templates still did not show. 

             

            are you referring to c:\program files\adobe\adobe premier elements 3.0\     Do not see any DVD templates folder.

             

            This project started out as a slide show from Photoshop Elements if that matters.

              When you click on the little + next to the PrE 3 folder, what do you see for sub-folders? Click all +'s to expand all sub-folders, until you only have -'s. Unless PrE 4 departed from the general scheme, they should be there. Now, the sub-folder's names may well have changed, but the general locations probably have not.

               

              Maybe post a screen-cap of Windows Explorer, with all the sub-folders open, to save having to do a bunch of typing.

               

              Good luck,

                Here is a partial list of my PrE 4 sub-folders, with DVD Templates open, and then a particular sub-forum open to show the file types inside.

                Your view and folder structure should be very similar.

                 

                Good luck,

                PS - you might want to do a Search for "generic1_pal_s_mm.psd," or variations on that, like "generic*.psd." I'd narrow that down to the PrE folder, but then expand to the entire C:\, if you are not finding it. That is a common Menu, and should have been in PrE 3.
