Hi would love some help and advice if possible
Have had nothing but trouble with Premiere 8 Elements and have been unable to finish any projects so far. I have had it working but it crashed every few minutes. Updated as many things and reinstalled elements several times. It seemed to be working fine for a while and I even managed to download an hours footage and burn it to a dvd. I then added some key frames for titles and left it to burn another disc.
It crashed during this and after the computer restarted I even had trouble ejecting the disc.
Now I cannot use it at all . It allows me to open a project and it does everything as it should while loading, sometimes you even get a climpse at the time line but then it mimimizes to the tool bar and you can do nothing with it at all.
I have tried changing the settings on the welcome box to open behind screen etc but none make any difference..I have reloaded premiere but it still will not work
I am running a quad core Intel (64bit) with 4gigs ram and Nvidia GT220 graphics card.
When someone is having this much trouble, I recommend that they contact Adobe Tech Support.
They'll be able to work you through troubleshooting your machine and figuring out what's going on better than we can on this forum.
Welcome to the forum.
Though there are some PrE 9 specific comments, this ARTICLE offers some general tips, that might be helpful with PrE 8 and crashing issues.
Good luck, and hope that something contained in the linked article helps,
