    Effects have annoying lines once saved


      Hi everyone


      I am new to this forum and new to Adobe Premier Elements


      I have version 4.0


      Whenever I try and use Lightning or Particle effects I have a serious problem when I save the video


      The effects have horizontal lines running through them (please note these lines are MORE apparent in the actual vid I made, in this screen capture they don't look that bad)


      can anyone tell me what settings I can use to avoid this?

      I am saving in 1080i (windows media)


      Also in the preview window of my project there are NO lines.


      I am looking to buy AE soon and if I this problem is hardware related (can't see how as Vegas works fine running at full capacity) I need to know


      any help would be greatley appreaciated

          Welcome to the forum.


          Can you tell us all about your Project Preset, and about the source files that you are using and applying the Effects to? Possibly something there.


          Also, can you give us the complete setting for your WMV Export/Share?


          Good luck,

            My project presets are

            The finished saved file is

            I didn't adjust or change any of these settings

              I have just noticed that this issue is occuring when I view the video Full screen


              When I double click the file it appears ok in windows media but is quite small so when I select Full screen the lines appear.




              this very weird


              When I magnify the preview screen in elements to 100% The lines appear!!

              However when I chosee any other magnifictaion 200, 800, the lines Dissapear!


              It seems like this problem is occuring when the video is being viewed at a specific setting

              could it be my monitor?
