Like Vegas MovieStudio, Premiere Elements supports 60p in only a few formats, such as 1280x720. It does not support 60p for full AVCHD 1920x1080.
Premiere Elements 9 includes a number of project settings for DSLR video, including that shot in 24p.
GoPro video is not supported by the program. However, frequent forum contributor Bill Hunt has some notes on working with GoPro footage in our Tips & Tricks forum.
And you can find more information on the basics of the program, including setting up a project for given footage, in my free 8-part Basic Training tutorial series at Premiere Elements support site Muvipix.com.
Thanks, I will check out your tutorials this evening.
After posting this I did find a site where someone has written a patch that can be installed in the Premiere folders and will supposedly create a working preset. I downloaded it but have yet to install it. Hopefully that will work.
As far as the 60p framerate goes, I want to be able to create slow-motion shot with that and export it at normal rate for smoother slo-mo. I will try the patch, watch your tutorials and try the trial for Vegas.
One more question though, you said, "Like Vegas MovieStudio, Premiere Elements supports 60p in only a few formats, such as 1280x720."
How? There is no preset for that in my copy of Elements, is that somethng that came with 9? Perhaps there is an update that my version doesn't show? GoPro R3 mode is 1280x720 60p, that's what I need.

As I show you in my books and tutorials, you can find 60p project settings under:
AVCHD: AVCHD Lite 720p60
DSLR: DSLR 720p60
DSLR: DSLR 640X480p60
Robert, the Premiere Elements guru at http://Muvipix.com, found he was able to edit GoPro video after he installed the GoPro codec.
There is also free editing software on the GoPro site:
Although even the GoPro site recommends using a program like MPEG Streamclip to convert the video before you try to edit it with a third-party editing program (which would include Premiere Elements):
Thanks for your help. I will look for the settings in my version of Premiere when I get home tonight.I have version 8, that might be some of the problem.
can you edit regular video with gopro's free software? I thought that was just for creating the 3D video shot when you link two gopros, which is something I'd like to do one of these days but for now I only have one camera.
>can you edit regular video with gopro's free software?
Unless that software is produced by Adobe, I will guess you need to ask about Gopro in a Gopro forum
The software is free. It's definitely worth a try!
Yeah well I know this is an Adobe forum, I'm trying to find a solution and reason to upgrade the Adobe software I bought this time last year. If I can find a way to continue using Premiere I will upgrade when 10 comes out, otherwise I'll purchase Sony Vegas. Thanks for the concern though.
Well, I've written books on and created tutorials for both all the current versions of Premiere Elements and Vegas Movie Studio, so I can help you with either!

Not any of these are available presets for me. There are no listings under "dslr" at all. I tried the patch I downloaded but it was intended for version 7, so no go with that.
I am playing with the trial for Vegas. It lets me import a file and auto-detect settings. Seems to work rather well, might be worth the $100 after all.
These presets were added in version 9. Sorry. It wasn't clear you were using version 8 until later in your postings.
For what it's worth, version 9 is a significant improvement over version 8, both in versatility and performance.
