What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what codec is it?
When you started up your Premiere Elements project, which settings did you select? If you selected the correct settings for your project, there will be no red lines above your clips when you add them to your timeline. Is this the case in your project?
Parts 1 and 2 of my 8-part Basic Training tutorial series shows you how to properly set up a project and add video to it.
thank you steve for getting back too me, i dont know what you mean by codec, the camera i use is a Canon dslr 600d which films in full 1080p hd at 25 frames a second when i started a new project first off all i opend up one of these cilps and the program automaticaly changed to acomidate it but from then on i have chosen the 1080p hd setting for the video i dont get a red line at the top for the clips just that the clips slow down when i put them together and in the preview its difficult to see whats happening, then after a few more mins it crashes and i get that notice, and its stumped me why this is happening especialy because them clips play fine on this computer and also dont have any lag in movie maker. i opporate on windows 7 and any help i would appriceate thank you again

Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen
just checked and the wrapper is .MOV. which is a quicktime file if theres anything benife that i cant find it
Have you run Advanced System Care (free) on your computer? New computers, like old, need a tune-up, this program will eliminate the fragmentation and temp files that can choke video work.
Also, have you got at least a quad core or i7 processor and 4 or more gigabytes of RAM? The video your'e working with needs a lot of power to edit.
Finally, please let us know if there is anything unusual about your set-up, i.e., you have discs partition, you're editing video on a second or external hard drive, etc.

I have a loaf of bread... which does not say anything at all about what is IN that bread (white flour, whole wheat, oats&barley, etc)
You use one of the programs I mentioned (2 for Windows, 1 for Mac) to analyze the file and report the details
