Is the Work Area Bar (the light gray bar that stretches across the Timeline's ticker) spread across all of your video?
Also, what kind of camcorder did your video come from, and which settings did you select when you set up your Premiere Elements project?
Yes, the Work Area Bar is streched out from the beginning to the end.
The video is imported from mpeg files that are ripped from DVD (with private Super8 (8mm film) footage on it)
The settings at set up was Standard Def. 4:3 DV Pal
If you're using video from a DVD as your source, your project settings should be for a Hard Drive Camcorder. Otherwise you're going to run into interlacing issues.
That said, when you import our DVD files into Premiere Elements, be sure to wait until the files are completely conformed before you edit them. (You can watch the conforming progress in the lower right corner of the interface.) It sounds like you may have begun editing before your video was completely conformed.
Ok, and how can i correct this. I have my product ready, not looking forward to starting all over again.Can i see what file causes the problems?
If this is the case, I'm not sure how you can fix this project at this point. You may have corrupted it early in your work.
But, before you panic, how did you check your DVD? Did you play it on your computer? And, if so, what software did you use and how did you launch the disc?
I burned it to to a DVD and played it on my pc and a dvd player. Both had the same result.
So you think a have to reimport and re-edit the material? It would help if could find out what file is wrong..

If you move the CTI playhead on your timeline to the latter half of your video, do you have picture and sound when you play it?
Yes, the timeline plays without problems.
Your last comment made me wonder. If the beginning and the end plays, there should be something in the middle where it all goes wrong. I discovered that in the timeline, at the point where the exports stops (which is very logical!), there was a glitch in the source material. A pixelated sort of error with green en red screens. I edited this out, and now the export goes just fine!
Steve, thanks for the help.'
Wow! Glad we could help you find a solution, Just!
