1. If you put the installation back in your computer's drive, you'll see a button to click to install additional content -- which add many more templates.
2. It's very important to match your video source and project specs. What kind of camcorder did you video come from? When you set up your Premiere Elements project, you must select the appropriate project preset.
Also, is there a red line above your clips on the timeline? This is an indication that the timeline needs to be rendered. Press Enter and the program will render the timeline. (The red line will turn green.) Rendering will make the program perform much more efficiently. Selecting the right project preset can make you need to render less often.
You can also get complete help for virtually every tool in the program in my books. I've written standalone books on Premiere Elements 7, 8 and 9 as well as combined books for the Photoshop Elements/Premiere Elements combo. To see all the books available, click the "Buy Now" link on this page. (Don't worry, you won't actually buy anything when you click the button. It just connects you to the store.)
Thank you, jerky problem solved! I changed the Project Settings to Pal/AVCHD-Full HD 1980i 25, Pal DV Widescreen 48kHz etc, and, 'waited' for the rendering to finish. When I played a short test 100mb project it played without jerking. Now very happy!
I'll try your suggestion of re-loading the installation DVD and selecting and installing additional content tonight! (The disk is at home!)
I did find your Muvipix website early on and found your files useful so will subscribe..tonight. (or soon after setting up the internet on new laptop!)
FYI.. it's a Camcoder is JVC GX 620. Very nice and easy to use. Not keen on the touch side panel scroll though but I'll soon get used to it.

For additional Effects, you might want to check out New Blue FX. Some are included, but there are others.
I'll have a go at downloading the 'additional' files from my Adobe DVD tonight. When I've had a look at what Adode offers I'll know more. I'm current keen on the video to cartoon, some wedding...anything, anything to make a caving video look or sound good.
I'm a serious caver and have taken up the challenge to record our club trips and have been asked to video my niece's wedding. I'm ok with videoing, other software but new to Adode.
Your references to the three other software are appreciated.
IIRC, Red Giant has a "Tooning" Effect in one of their Effects "suites." I know that the Red Giant Effects work with PrPro and AE, but am not sure if they also work in PrE.
You might also look at the Posterize Effect, as it will get a similar Effect. Also, one can gang some Effects, so that one can do compound Effects on one Clip.
Premiere Elements 9 now includes the NewBlue Cartoonr effect, which gives video a cartoon-like look.
Cool!!! I checked the Red Giant site, and it looks like their Movie Looks is only for AE and PrPro. No mention was made of PrE, but New Blue FX does support PrE for many of their Effects, and if this one is now included, so much the better.
