PRE does not provide 3D editing features. The following basics solve many a problem in the PC world so you should try the MAC equivalents:
Install all Windows Updates.
Install latest version of Apple QuickTime (v7.6.9 at time of writing). Even if you don't use QuickTime, PRE relies heavily on it.
- Install most recent graphics and sound drivers from the manufacturers web sites.
- Install PRE9 v9.0.1 update.
- Delete BadDrivers.txt (in Windows 7 this is likely at C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Premiere Elements\9.0\BadDrivers.txt)
- Run Disk Cleanup.
- Run Defragmenter.
- Reboot your PC.
- Temporarily disable any anti-virus realtime scanning.
And give us some information about your clips and hardware:
It also may help to tell us what kind of camcorder your video came from and how you got it into your computer? Which project settings are you using? If you are using project settings that ideally match your source video, there will be no red lines above the clips on our timeline. Is this the case?
It also may help if you post a screen capture of your program with this video on your timeline.
Premiere Elements 9 runs great on my iMac with Snow Leopard! Don't discount the fact that it could be pilot error. But we can't help you without detail and illustrations.
I have a problem installing Premiere Elements 9 on Mac osx. The message is "payload cannot be installed due to dependent operation failure" Any Suggestions?
Michael, as your problem is not directly related to the original posters, I'd like to request that you start your own topic. It's very difficult to carry on two different conversations in the same thread. Thank you.
Also, when you do, please post your system specs, operating system version and if you have any other Adobe software on your computer.
