Have you resized the images to no more than 1,000x750 for Standard Definition (or 2,000x1,500 for HiDef)? More information here: What resolution should my photos be in Premiere Elements?
Insanity is hereditary, you get it from your children
Yes i work at a local television station and therefore know that standard def widescreen television resolution is 720 x 486 which is what size all my images are created for used in my video.
--oh and i love your signature!
Can you elaborate on "I can not preview my video timeline at all when i have photoshop files"?
What do you see?
If nothing, then you need to double-check your video drivers and/or remove the BadDrivers file. If something used to work but suddenly doesn't, it usually indicates the need to update. (Or, less likely, you've installed a program that conflicts with a current program.)
Is there a red line above your clips on the timeline? If so, press Enter. When the line turns green, try to play your timeline preview and see if it makes a difference.
I can't preview the video in the timeline in the preview window inside premier. When i play my timeline i can hear all my audio but can't see any video in the preview portion of my workspace. and also it will not render anything at all now that you ask about the rendering forgot to mention that before but this is only when i have a photoshop graphic file on one of my layers. if i work on a project that doesn't involve and .psd files everything works fine...
thank you for your time
Please let me know what happens when you do what I suggested in my last post.
Ok well i already updated as in completely uninstalled all video drivers then downloaded the new driver i will try to remove the file BadDrivers.txt as indicated in your link....i am running vista which is not listed but i'm sure the instruction will be relative to one of the other (7 or xp) It will be later this weekend before i can try it though but will post what happens.
OK i did as you said and could not locate a file called BadDrivers.txt...
The BadDriver.txt issue is unique to version 9. We didn't know until your more recent posts that you were using an earlier version of the program.
I'd recommend you contact Adobe Tech Support and see if they can help you work through a solution.
As i stated in my opening case i am using 9 do you mean its unique to PE9? well anyways thanks for you help!
If you are using version 9, you should locate and remove the BadDriver file then. It will likely fix your problem.
As you are using video from a miniDV camera, what is the Project Preset chosen?
Are you doing the Capture from the miniDV tape with PrElements 9, via FireWire?
Do your Clips (both video and stills) have a red line above them in the Timeline?
If so, when you Render the Timeline (red lines turn green), does this help with the playback? This ARTICLE goes into a bit more detail.
