Further investigation reveals that 'Share/Tape' works correctly. It's only Capture that is wrong.
Thanks for your observations, alan.
Those haven't been my experiences at all. Version 9's performance is a huge improvement over version 8's! And I've been testing it with miniDV, Flip video and AVCHD with very good results all around.
Assuming you've got adequate power (in my books, I recommend at least a dual-core machine at 2.6 ghz and 4 gigs of RAM for standard video, and a quad-core processor for AVCHD or HDV) and your operating system is up to date and well configured, you should see very snappy and stable performance.
Oh dear! My machine comes well within your spec for SD working.
Further observation re: Titles. I burned a DVD from my test edit ad the titles appear OK there. I further checked by inserting a title but did not render i.e. red line on work bar. Then it appears. It only disappears upon rendering, green bar. Further, I checked the 'preview' in it's directory, and the title doesn't appear there, just black.
Curiouser and curiouser!
After reading the ReadMe file (when will I ever learn?) under 'Issues' it says that capture will be disabled if the Sound Card is offline. I run an external Sound Card (M-Audio) and it was indeed offline. So capture now works. Moral: Read the ReadMe before panicking. An odd 'Issue', don't you think? If it's an Issue, why not sort it before releasing the Program?
However, the Titles problem remains. I Installed PrE9 on my laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium) with exactly the same problem, once rendered, titles cause the output to go black. Software problem, seeing as on two entirely different systems?
Glad that you got the Audio/Capture issue sorted out.
As for the Titles, I cannot come up with any reason that one should experience this behavior. I would have thought that beta testers would have certainly worked extensively with Titles, so that they would have uncovered an intrinsic issue.
Can you post a screen-cap of your Timeline, with the CTI over one of the Rendered Titles, so that it will show in the Program Monitor? Might be something that someone will see there.
Thank you. I had thought that maybe something like the Opacity might have become changed, but it looks good. I see nothing that should account for this. Can you do one more screen-cap with the Title in the Titler Panel?
I wonder if this has something to do with the trail version's banner, but I have never heard of that interfering with a Title before.
Thanks for the second screen-cap. I cannot find anything that should be causing this issue. Only thought is that the banner is somehow involved, as it does come through. Obviously, the PrE 9 trial is very new, but the general technology has been around for the trial version for a very long time. Still, this is a new trial version, so maybe something went awry.
If it is a Bug in the trial, others will soon jump in.
Again, thanks and good luck,
Not sure if I should've started my own thread, but figured it might be better to have all PrE9 issues collected in one place....
Problem: I cannot render Windows Media HD files without crashing windows
Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium
Intel Core 2 Duo 3.21GHz (E6300 OC)
2 GB DRAM
GeForce 7900GS 128MB
I'm the owner of Premiere Elements 4 and Sony Vegas Studio 10, both which suck at dealing with AVCHD video from my 2 Canon cameras. I was VERY excited to see Premiere Elements 9 list compatibility SPECIFICALLY for Canon EOS digital cameras. Seems this claim was BS though.
I am running the trial. I took in about 5 clips each from my T2i (1080p29.97 AVCHD) and SD780 (720p30). The total footage is 14minutes. I added 2 effects and 1 transition and set it off to finalize (share) the project to Windows Media format at 1080p30 10Mbps max. First attempt, crash! After reboot, crash again!
Here's the error message:

Highly dissappointing. I really wanted to buy this program as I prefer Premiere over Vega, but guess I'll have to stick with Vegas and transcoding my clips to an intermediate format (Vegas crashes with AVCHD source files too).
To be fair I will try to contact Adobe help desk and see if they can solve the issue. I'll keep you posted.
A BSOD is most often a hardware issue. The major causes shake out this way:
1.) heat buildup
3.) PSU issues
This ARTICLE will offer some tools that might help diagnose the issues.
Yours is a completely new topic, Brian. Please start your own thread so that we don't get confused trying to carry on two conversations at once. Thank you.
Thanks for checking Bill.
If I'm to continue with PrE9 I guess I shall have to risk buying it and ask for a refund from Adobe if it doesn't work.
Or I roll back to v8.
Thanks for your time folks.
Bill, looks like you were right. I reduced my FSB frequency by 15% and it encoded without a BSOD! Guess the overclock I tested to be stable 3 years ago isn't quite as stable anymore
Thanks for the suggestion!
Now I can move back to Premiere Elements and be happy. Anyone want to buy a copy of Sony Vega Studio 10?
Bill and Steve.
Just to let you know that I've gripped the Titles problem.
I took a big risk and purchased PrE9. All has now come good. So, for ayone else with similar problems, it is tied up with the Trial banner somehow..
Steve, I now agree that 9 fair zips along on Windows 7. It's still a bit sluggish on Vista but maybe the machine needs a tune-up?
Thank you both for your guidance and patience, much appreciated.
All the best,
Alan (now a happy bunny!)
Thank you for reporting. We can now offer a suggestion, if other encounter this issue with the trial.
Thanks and good luck,
