Publish+Share signifcantly reduces video quality in Premiere Elements 13

As the title states, whenever I publish and share a video in Premiere Elements 13, the video quality is drastically reduced to an almost unwatchable level compared to the original video  This is even the case before any effects are added to the video.  If I add the media to the timeline and then directly publish+share before any changes are done, the video quality is still ruined.  When I click play full screen in elements, the quality and resolution is exactly where I want it, but once again, when I share the video, it's essentially destroyed.
When I play the newly created video there is giant black space above, below and to the sides of the video (where there is none in the original) and movement in the movie causes the video to grain with black lines.
I have been playing around with settings and researching online for a long time now but I can't seem to find the solution.  What I have been doing is going publish+share, ---> Computer, ---> AVI.  Then in advanced settings the video codec is selected to DV NTSC, and the basic video settings which are locked in (which I can't change) are set to quality 100, width 720, height 480.  The Aspect is D1/DV NTSC (0.9091).  I have selected render at maximum depth.  I have also tried saving it as MPEG and other video types but the result is the same.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I understand that I am new and have lots to learn, but it seams so strange to me that the simple process of putting a video in Elements would essentially destroy it.  Thanks again.

It was not until Mary Lou Frost posted in your thread today that I realized that I did not see and reply to your questions in post 4 of your thread (dated December 15, 2014). Sorry about that.
If you want to match up the properties of the export file with the properties of the Timeline source media, often you need to direct your attention to
a. Publish+Share/Computer/......and trying to match up the video (especially) and audio compressions of the import with those of the export choice.
b. A frequent cause of a difference between import file size and export file size is the bitrate used by these files. The higher the bitrate, the greater the quality, but
the larger is the file size. So, trying to match import file and export file bitrates is also on the agenda. See the preset's Advanced Button/Video Tab and the settings
there for bitrate. The units for bitrate will be either kbps kilobits per second (also seen as Kbps) or Mbps megabits per second. We can go into that further if necessary.
Premiere Elements allows for the setting of one project preset which should match the properties of the source files. If you have "mixed source files", setting up the
project can become a challenge. The rule of thumb that I typically use involves setting priorities...
1. If videos and stills, I will set for the properties of the video and then size (or let the project size) the still to the frame size of the video
2. If just stills, I try for 1920 x 1080 stills and import them using a DLSR 1080p project preset...that seems to give sharper end product results when doing burn to disc.
Please review and consider and let me know if I have targeted your questions. Any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I try to respond daily to questions, so, if you do not see a timely, response, please send me an Adobe Forum private message asking me "What happened to you?".
Best wishes.

    Premiere Elements 10 NVIDIA Video Card Driver Roll Back
    If you are a Premiere Elements 10 user whose Windows computer uses a NVIDIA GeForce video card and you are experiencing
    Premiere Elements 10 display and/or unexplained program behavior, then your first line of troubleshooting needs to be rolling
    back the video card driver version instead of assuring that it is up to date.
    Since October 2013 to the present, there have been a growing number of reports about display and unexplained workflow
    glitches specific to the Premiere Elements 10 user whose Windows computer has a NVIDIA GeForce video card. If this applies
    to you, then the “user to user” remedy is to roll back the NVIDIA GeForce video card driver as far as is necessary to get rid of
    the problems. The typical driver roll back has gone back as far as March – July 2013 in order to get a working Premiere
    Elements 10. Neither NVIDIA nor Adobe has taken any corrective action in this regard to date, and none is expected moving forward.

  • How can I raise the volume on a video clip in Premiere Elements 12?

    I want to raise the volume on a video clip in Premiere Elements 12. Can anyone help?

    Always good to give the computer operating system involved in case any computer specific details needed to be included. But here is your
    generalized yet specific answer for Premiere Elements 12 and increasing the volume of a video clip.
    If you are in the Expert workspace...
    a. click and drag upward the orange band that runs horizontally through the middle of the audio clip.
    b. go to Adjust Tab/Adjustments Palette/ Volume Panel expanded on move the volume slide toward +6 dB.
    0 db does not represent no sound. It represents the volume of the sound when it was recorded. 0 to +6 dB increases the sound above the recording level; 0 to infinity symbol decreases the sound below the recording level, finally to muted sound.
    Please let us know if you are OK with the details above. My blog post on PE12: Audio Features may be useful to you.

  • Using U tube videos in Mac Premiere Elements 11

    Can I download u tube videos to mac premiere elements 11 to use in a project that I am working on?  If so, how do I do it?

    Mac or Windows or Premiere Elements 11 is not the question....
    There are several software targeting video downloads from YouTube, I am told. BUT, last that I heard, none are considered legal for want of a better term. Last time I looked at this issue, the consensus was that the YouTube Agreement did not allow for this activity.
    The following online article goes into fuller details on the matter.

  • Importing video created in Premiere Elements into Muse

    Ideally we should be able to work in one Adobe product and transfer the work product to another Adobe product. I love Muse, but I am unable to export a video created in Premiere Elements CS6 into Muse CS6. The problem is that there is no export option in PE to create an SWF file .... the only video file Muse seems to support. I hope in a future iteration of Muse, it will take FLV files or that PE will be able to export to an SWF flie.

    Read up on how to manually embed video players such as jwplayer or whatever. Merely a mtter of downloading the player skins and copy&pasting the sample code.

  • Importing Videos To Adobe Premiere Elements 11 Only Shows Black Screen

    Why is it Importing WMV Videos To Adobe Premiere Elements 11 Only Shows Black Screen.
    Thank You In Advance

    Forget about all the rest until you check out the Announcement at the top of this forum regarding the current 1/2 wmv display related to a recent Windows Update kb file. I missed the wmv part of your initial question by focusing too much on the thread title.
    Here is a copy for your convenience
    Announcement: Windows Update Causes Half of Display to Be Blacked Out
    Hide Details
    MicroSoft has issued an Update for Windows, that is causing problems with Displays. The following is from Talbot McInnis, who tracked down this problem, and offers a fix:
    "MS bulliten MS13-057.  Specifically, on XP kb2834904 and on windows 7 kb2803821 is causing a problem
    For us, it occurs when decoding WMV9 files.  Not all uses of WMV decoding are affected, but I confirmed that when connecting the WMV decode DLL to a sample grabber for RGB32 video, the frames arrive black on top, so that points directly to decoding internals of the WMV Decode dll.
    You can uninstall these windows updates to resolve your problem."
    There are several threads on the problem that this Update is causing on the PrE and PrPro Forums, so one can get more details. So far, there is not another fix from either MS, or Adobe.

    I think that is your answer. Please let us know if that worked for you.

  • Reduced video quality when slowed down

    Is it normal for the video quality of slowed down footage to be less than the original file.
    I think the orignal copied file format was MOV (JVC Camcorder seems to generate .MOV and .MOI files) which imports to iMovie09 fine and good quality.
    When I move a clip into the Project Viewer and then want to change the speed of the clip, iMovie converts the clip (not sure what format it converts into). When I slow the clip down (to 25%) the quality is reduced.
    Is this something I'm doing wrong or is it the original file type? Also, will my original clip be permanently converted into this other form or will it still be intact (therefore just what is in the Project Viewer is the converted format)?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    often discussed here:
    when source is DV, iM09 processes interlaced video only single-field.
    I have no source files of SD from non-tape-based devices.. perhaps here, the same quality-drop happens..

  • Getting the best possible output video quality in Premiere 8.0

    Here is my PC information:
    Windows 7 64 bit
    Intel Quad Core Q6600 @2.40 Ghz
    4.0 GB of Ram
    My Camera information:
    Kodak Playsport HD
    Records videos in HD 720P @ 60 FPS
    Saves movies in .MOV format, 1280 x 720 resolution, and H.264 codec
    Now I am playing around with the settings but when I edit movies in Premiere Elements and then save it I always lose a lot of quality. I'm not really interested in sharing the videos on the web, I'm just looking for the best possible quality (as close to how it looks in its original form) for viewing on my home computer. Can anybody help me out with decent export settings that will give me the best overall quality?

    Hello Bill and thank you for your respone, I appreciate it. I've managed to get the overall quality of the movie a lot better with using different presets at new project. I am now using the preset NTSC-HDV-HDV720p 30 and that seems to be working a lot better. I also save the final movies as a Quicktime file, with a Local Area Network (LAN) and then I go to advanced and bring up the quality to 100, change it to 1280x720, bring the frame rate up to 60, and set the bitrate at 8000.
    I am now having a different problem however. It seems that when I add a music to the background the song messes up frequently. What I mean is that when I'm watching the movie I created the video will be playing normally and then at random times the song will skip or get choppy. Then on top of that, with certain transitions between scenes the transition won't even work, it will just freeze for a bit and then skip to the next scene (On a side note, I leave the "Field Type" as "Progressive" and the "Aspect" as "Square Pixels [1.0] simply because I'm not sure what those are for).
    I just uploaded this practice video to youtube, if you want to check it out it's at
    Keep in mind I just threw together a couple random pictures and clips just to practice haha. You will be able to notice that the song and video get slightly choppy for some reason.
    Thanks in advance!

  • MacbookPro reduces video quality!!!

    i just received my new 15` macbook pro with 2,8 Ghz Intel und 4 GB RAM.
    Right now i`m importing videos from my canon hf 10 in fullHD. Before importing a warning appears, that with this laptop the video quality will be reduced.
    Is this a general warning for macs or do only the "professional" laptops have this warning?

    It means that the play back on your computer, while viewing and editing, may not be real smooth. It could be a little jumpy or jerky. The output of iMovie won't be like that it just that the play back is a lot for the computer to handle in real time.

  • Video Bitrate too high, even reducing video quality

    I'm having difficulties on building a DVD9 that I need to send to the factory.
    Even though I reduced the video quality from 6.6 to 6.4, the problem still happens.
    Does anybody have any idea of how to make this thing build, without converting the 2.0 audio to .ac3?
    Is the problem, anyhow related to the Max Bitrate, on VBR?
    If yes, using a 6.5Mbps CBR will my problem be solved? The quality of the video will be harmed? How bad?
    Here are the specifications:
    Space occupied: 7.3 GB
    Main video:
    Duration: 85'
    Encode: mpeg2 One pass VBR
    Average Bitrate: 6.4Mbps
    Max Bitrate: 7.5Mbps
    Audio: 2.0 PCM
    5.1 Dolby .ac3
    Making of:
    Duration: 15'
    Encode: mpeg2 One pass VBR
    Average Bitrate: 6.3Mbps
    Max Bitrate: 7.4Mbps
    Audio: 2.0 PCM
    3 motion Menus with .ac3 audio
    3 static Menus with .ac3 audio

    There is a tutorial on the proper settings for AC3 encoding at;
    The tutorial is on A.Pack, which has been since folded into Compressor, but the settings are the same. If its done right, the ac3 file will sound identical to the PCM file.
    BTW when you provided audio samples for the client to listen to did you tell them, "This is the compressed ac3 file, and this is the PCM file." Or did you correctly tell them, "Listen to these two files, sample A and sample B, and tell me which sounds better, or do they sound the same." And obviously you cannot have them look at the files because one will be significantly smaller than the other.

  • Elements Organizer 12 doesn't generate thumbnails for .mpg videos produced by Premiere Elements

    I just upgraded from Elements+Premiere 11 to version 12, on Windows 8.1 x64.
    I produced a 1st .mpg file (HDTV 1080p 25 img/s), and imported it in Elements Organizer.
    Unfortunately, the Organizer doesn't generate any thumbnail for the file.
    This is a new "behavior" of the Organizer 12, because the Organizer 11 use to generate thumbnails properly.
    I tried to manually update the thumbnail (right click), but after waiting several seconds, there is still no thumbnail appearing.

    Here are the results from my test of your situation where you tried to import 3 Premiere Elements 12 created files into the Elements Organizer 12 after their creation and save to the hard drive.
    The 3 files from Premiere Elements 12 were
    Publish+Share/Computer/MPEG with Presets = HDTV 1080p25 High Quality
    Publish+Share/Computer/MPEG with Presets = HDTV 720p25 High Quality
    Publish+Share/Computer/MPEG with Presets = HD 720p25
    The same scheme was used for each, and the results were the same for each...
    Imported into Elements Organizer 12, File Menu/Photos and Videos/Files and Folders.
    In the Elements Organizer 12, each imported with a thumbnail displaying only a filmstrip icon.
    Next I double click the thumbnail and got playback of the video in the Elements Organizer 12 without issue.
    Next I right clicked the thumbnail and selected Update Thumbnail. It did within a few seconds. The thumbnail then displayed the first frame of the video.
    I ran this test on a laptop with Windows 8.1 64 bit computer operating system. Installed on this computer along with Premiere Elements 12...QuickTime latest version, iTunes latest version, a PowerDVD player. Windows Media Player 12 appeared to be there but not yet activated. No VLC player or other.
    For the moment I am assuming that codec were essentially from QuickTime and from what Premiere Elements 12 brought along.
    More later.

  • Problems with rendering quality in Premiere Elements 9

    Hello, I've made a few videos with PE 9 now, and I get very poor quality rendering despite trying several different settings. I saw on a help thread earlier that I needed to try changing to HD when creating the new file from the beginning. I did that, but it only made my PE 9 run more slowly, and the rendering quality was not improved. I also read somewhere that using .MOV files as a source can cause problems with rendering; is that true? I hope not! I use a Lumix bridge camera for my videos, and the video quality is very good. And when I'm working with these videos within PE 9 the quality is great. It's only when exporting to various file types that the quality suddenly becomes poor. For the most part I have made compilation videos of gymnasts, and when their legs move they are often so lined or pixelated that they become invisible. Here is an example of a short gym video I made yesterday: The last girl jumping gives the best example of this invisible leg problem.
    You can see the original source films here:
    The sequences I took in my compilation video start at about 20 seconds in the source videos.
    Youtube does reduce the quality of the videos slightly, but in any case you can definitely see a difference in quality between the source videos and the PE 9 rendered compilation video.
    I'm quite disappointed because I made a longer compilation video set to music (which was a lot of work), and it looks so much nicer on PE 9 than on any of the rendered formats, but of course I can't share the PE 9 version!
    Thanks very much for your help.

    Thanks Steve. I'm not sure what resolution I'm shooting in, actually. However, the thing is that when I make these compilations, I like to go back to source videos I've made in the past sometimes. Sometimes these videos come from a Canon camera, and sometimes they even come from my Samsung mobile telephone. I like being able to creatively combine historic moments, and these moments might have been recorded without any intention at the time of making a compilation video. Is it not possible to combine several kinds of video sources?
    I'm uploading an example of a compilation with mixed source videos from various kinds of cameras. It's 710 Megs so it will take a while, but when it's finished you will be able to see it at
    I opened up the file for the compilation of the four girls on the beam (video posted in original message), and I do indeed see those red lines in the timeline. Is there anything I can do now about that, or do I have to start the project all over?
    I'm confused about the processor requirements. Even if I can see my video perfectly in PE 9, the actual export process will be affected if my system is not up to par? If so, that's a bit disappointing! I'm not sure what my processor details are, but I will find out and let you know.
    Many thanks.

  • No video playback in premiere elements 12

    No playback after a few mins of editing.  Tried most of the potion in the adobe troubleshooting section ( .html) but never got anywhere.  Most options listed are for Windows.  I have an almost new Mac with all the system requirement to run Elements 12 .  HELP, PLEASE

    I am strictly an Elements Windows user, but I do try to find common ground between Premiere Elements 12 Windows and Mac as a first pass at troubleshooting issues like the one your present.
    1. What are the properties and duration of your source media?
    Video compression
    Audio compression
    Frame Size
    File Extension
    Frame Rate
    Interlaced or Progressive
    Pixel Aspect Ratio
    Brand/Model/Settings for Camera which recorded the video would help.
    2. What did you or the program set as the project preset based on a match of project preset with properties of the source media?
    3. What have you done in the way of edits after which you have problems? What is the duration of the TImeline at that point? Is this a multi track project?
    Please explain "playback stops"
    a. The TImeline Indicator will not move from the start of the Timeline when you press Play in the Edit area monitor?
    b. Playback stops after playing back about few seconds of the Timeline content
    c. Other
    Do you have the Work Area Bar gray tabs set to span the whole content of the Timeline?
    When you are playing back your Timeline in the Edit area monitor, does your Timeline content have an orange, green, or no colored line
    over its duration?
    4. Are you running a dual or single computer monitor setup? If you right click the Edit area monitor and select Playback Quality is there any
    difference in the problem whether you set for Highest instead of Automatic?
    5. For this type of video and this type of project, would you class this problem as
    "it worked before but not now" or "it never worked before".
    Thank you.

  • Multiple Hard Drives for Video Editing with Premiere Elements 8?

    I'm using Premiere Elements 8 for video editing. These are the specs I'm using:
    The camcorder I used to shoot the footage is a Sony Handycam with  model number HDR-SR12. It's a digital HD video camera recorder that  shoots in NTSC 1920x1080i HD  recording. The footage was shot with AVC  HD  9M (HQ), which records in higher image quality mode. The  video  camera is connected to my computer through a USB cable.
    The  computer  itself is a Windows 7 desktop computer. The CPU is an HP  Pavilion Elite  HPE-150f PC with Intel Core i7-860 processor. I imported  the video into  Premiere by selecting "File" --> "Get Media From"  and then choosing the third  option from the top.
    My import  option is NTSC/AVCHD/Full HD 1080i 30 5.1 channel, which matches the  specs of the camera I shot the footage with.
    Even with the patch 8.0.1 that should be preventing crashing, the program keeps crashing upon startup with one specific video project. Using the exact same video files for that project, I recreated the video, with Elements, and never ran into the problem. Both times, I had the patch installed.
    At the moment, I am using only the single internal hard drive for everything (software, OS, video editing, etc.). It is 1 TB in size. However, I am informed that one hard drive is not recommended for video editing, and that I need at least two hard drives, one for OS and one specifically for video editing. I was also informed of FireWire 800 and eSata; however, it does not appear that my computer supports eSata.
    Can this problem be resolved if I have an external hard drive and connect it to my computer with FireWire 800 (which the computer supports)? If not, what can be done so this problem doesn't arise in the future?
    Thanks for the help.

    As you have the recreated project working fine I'd be inclined to put this down as a one-off glitch. If it happens again on a different project then it may be more worrying. You may want to consider using save-as to create multiple versions of your project (note this does NOT duplicate the source clips - so you won't be eating up much extra disk space). You could for example use save-as to create a daily version - ProjectName-Mon, ProjectName-Tue etc....

  • Rendering quality in premiere elements 12

    Im new to Elements 12 and im editing some videos i took with a gopro. Whatever small effect i add to it, when I render it, the quality goes down the drain from HD to a first gen motorola razr. Ive looked around and it seems like older versions of elements had render settings but i cant find them in 12.
    the left is untouched and the right is after rendering. Any idea as to what is happening?

    What is the resolution of your Go Pro footage?
    When you add your video to your project's timeline, do you see a yellow orange line above the clips on the timeline in Expert view?
    What are you outputting your test video as? If you are judging the quality of your video by what you see in Premiere Elements, have you set the Monitor panel to full quality (by right-clicking on it)?
