    Will iTunes hinder adding music tracks to a video project?

    JohnRCain

      Working on a recent video project I incurred an error message when trying to add music from my files.  Went about it in the normal way (add media - from files) - highlighted file and clicked OK; got error.

      Recently added iTunes software to manage my music files.  Did note during installation that a couple of files were deleted.  Now the iTunes software grabs screen every time I try to download from CD.

       

      Question 1.  Is there a patch for Premiere Elements that will recognize files in iTunes format and allow adding to a video project?

      Question 2.  If not, can I delete iTunes and go back to using Media Manager?  Will I have to re-install Elements to get back the deleted pathway?

          iTunes music includes copy protection DRM software that will keep it from being used in a video editing project. (This is why many people prefer to use music from Amazon.com.)

           

          You can override this protection by burning your iTunes music to a disc and them ripping the music from the disc as an MP3.

           

          The files will work even better if you use a program like Audacity to turn it into a WAV file.

           

          It's an iTunes thing. Sorry for the inconvenience.

            Thanks Steve - gotter done and it worked fine.  Wish I hadn't loaded iTunes, but am stuck with it now and will do the work around when needed. Happy New Year,
