First, that camcorder doesn't shoot in AVCHD, so you shouldn't be using that project setting. You'd likely get better results using one of the DSLR or even Flip camcorder settings --but since none of the project presets are specifically designed to interface with this camcorder, if you're happy with the results, you should be fine.
Try using these specs, from the FAQs to the right of this forum, for your YouTube upload. You should get the best possible results. (YouTube deliberate downgrades the quality of whatever you post to save them bandwith, but this will guarantee you get the best possible.)
Thank you, I've saved the video as a .MOV but I still have the same problem, the effects are higher in the finished movie than in the PE9 work space. If you go to YouTube and look for "Premiere Elements 9 and YouTube effects problem" or enter http://youtu.be/45kNpV2Kr9w and you can see a little test video that shows the problem.

Premiere Elements does this with some video formats.
Export your project by going to Share/Computer/MPEG using the 1440x1080 MPEG settings. (You can check it at this point -- but everything should be lined up right.)
Open an new project (using the HDV project settings), import this MPEG and place it on your timeline. Then use Share to output the video for YouTube.
Thank you Steve
I’ve done what you suggested (well almost) and it defiantly works.
I saved a test piece with the troublesome effects in it to my desktop and
uploaded it to YouTube from
there rather than putting it back into Premiere Elements 9 and it works with
no problems at all, thank you very much.
Is there any advantage to be had from uploading the work from Premiere
rather than directly from the desktop?
Kind Regards . . . Andy.
Only that it saves you a few clicks.
Glad the solution worked for you!
Hi Steve, I've found that it makes a huge difference up loading the MPEG via PE9 to YouTube.
I have a long video ~10 minutes that wanted to take >10 hours to upload from my desktop but by moving it to the work space of PE9 and uploading it to YouTube from there it takes just over one hour. I guess the PE9 software sorts out the format before sending it to YouTube.
There is a problem with PE9 in as much as my YouTube account allows me to upload videos that are longer than 15 mins but when I try to upload anything to YouTube via PE9 that is more than 10 mins long PE9 tells me that my video is too long for YouTube and it stops my before it asks me to sign in to my YouTube account.
Anyway thank you for your invaluable help Steve, I'm having a lot of fun with PE9/YouTube and the special effects thanks to your help 10 out of 10 my friend!
Kind Regards ...Andy
