What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what format and resolution is it?
When you started your Premiere Elements project, which project settings did you select? If you selected the right project settings for your video, there will be NO red lines above your clips when you add them to your timeline. Is that the case in your project?
Thanks for your reply. The model of the camcorder is a Panasonic HDC-TM900.
I was using the highest resolution 1080 X 60, HD.
I am actually not sure about the project settings would you be able to tell me what the right settings will be, that will be help?
I did not have red lines on my clips.
Parts 1 and 2 of my free 8 part Basic Training tutorials shows you how to properly set up a project and get media into it.
Also note that some Panasonics shoot in 60p, a format that is not supported in Premiere Elements and will cause all sorts of problems.
If you plan to edit your video in Premiere Elements, you must shoot in 1920x1080i.
