Hi I just bought elements 9. I am using windows 7 and a panasonic lumix g3 camera which records in AVCHD lite.
If I try to to lets load some video files - open the organizer click file> get photos and videos>from files and folders with my sd card in the computer and select and view the files in a folder none of the video files are shown. All the photos files are there JPEG and raw but not the video, no thumbnails, no list, no nothing. the files are there I just cant see them so i cant import them so I can't use Premier elements. I cant find much about this anywhere either and am really hoping someone can help. Ideally I need to see a thumb nail to seletc files. thanks
First, make sure you have the latest version of Quicktime.
Then, instead of using the Organizer to get the video from the camera, set up a Premiere Elements project using the settings for AVCHD Lite 720p60 (720p50 if PAL) and then use Premiere Elements' Get Media/From Flip AVCHD and Hard Disk Camcorder tool to get the video from the camera.
