What model of camcorder is your video coming from and how did you get your video into your computer?
Which project settings did you select when you set up your Premiere Elements project?
Also, have you ensured you have the latest version of Quicktime from Apple.com, per the program's instructions?
Hello thank you very much for your attention.
i just used standard project setting, and both high definition settings.
not sure about quicktime for my pc with windows xp... if you could elaborate
thanks for your time
Go to Apple.com and download Quicktime.
You need this program to edit video on your computer.
You also need to give me more information about your camcorder. What is its model number?
And, when you opened your Premiere Elements project, did you select the settings to match this camcorder?
Check out my free Basic Training tutorials for Premiere Elements at Premiere Elements support site Muvipix.com. They'll give you a better idea of how to set up a successful project and work with this program.
hello again and thank you

Did you shoot your video in FH or HQ modes (the only modes Premiere Elements will support)?
Did you set up your project for AVCHD 1920x1080 video with 5.1 audio, as per the first tutorial in by Basic Training series?
It's very important that you answer all of my questions as completely as possible if you want me to help you, Mr. Ruben.
originally i had problems with a codec after i used real player once by accident and it changed the codecs then wouldn't import or play in windows media player.
i downloaded k lite codec pac... and now it plays in window player. the current format says its an mpeg-ts video file although there appears to be no file extention showing affter the file name.
i have tried multiple project settings of high def and standard.. but do not see one that matches exactly AVCHD 1920x1080 video with
nor one that has worked so far..
i have filmed everything in the high def mode
I'm sorry, Mr. Ruben. I'm just not getting enough information from you to be able to help you.
As I've said, in part 1 of my Basic Training tutorials, I show you how to set up your project and how show to select the AVCHD 1920x1080 5.1 audio project settings. If you're still not seeing this option, there may be something very wrong with your program, and I recommend you contact Adobe Tech Support so that they can help you troubleshoot your installation.
Sorry that I can't be of more help. Good luck.
>downloaded k lite codec pac
From other messages I've read, you may have destroyed any chance of Premiere Elements working properly, due to settings of the codecs installed by PE being changed, so PE can't "find" the codecs it needs to operate
I don't know if anyone will be able to help, now
Thanks for your help.
i have adobe premeir four. under the tutorial that comes with it there is some informantion how to set up a poject. there are options to choose project settings as you set up. there doesn't seem to be options that are AVCHD 1920x1080 5.1 audio project settings. And the ones available do not work.
If there is another place i should be looking please inform me. the link you gave me does not seem to have the tutorial of which you speak.
thanks again for your time...
my high def camera is sony hdr- sr12
if there is something else i havent communicated. please let me know
Hi thanks for your help John,
just want to confirm that down loading codecs.... somehow interferes permanently with premeir....
do you think if i get another more recent copy that will resolve things.. or can i uninstall codec... use an appropriate codec package and try that ...
i am prepared to upgrade if that will resolve problem.
John, I have the K-Lite Codec Pack on my machine, and I know a number or people who do also. I have never heard of a bad experience with it. In fact, it can expand the capabilities of a lot of programs!
