Freezing problems with Premiere Elements 3.0

It seems that when ever I put on a certain length of videos, the program slows down completely (I don't seem to have a problem putting my pictures on, it's only with the videos). That doesn't really bug me, but the problem is when it doesn't run properly. It will freeze, not play back my project that I've only made half of, and shut down when a window pops up saying that there's some serious error. It's frustrating because I have to open it 5 times to even touch up on one little thing before it closes again due to some error. Are there any kind of updates, or things I could add to my computer that would make the program run better?

My celeron 2.8 ghz 448mb ram is too slow, why?


Not enough memory.

Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing. Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM. Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

I need to see the manual for Adobe Photoshop Elements. I have the system installed but I need instructions and I don't see why I should pay for it.


Whch version of Photoshop Elements do you have? Adobe doesn't seem to have a manual for version 10 of the program on their support site. If you have an install disc, look for pdf, html and video tutorials.

Otherwise try these links:

Getting Started (videos and some html files) http://www.adobe.com/support/photoshopelements/gettingstarted/index.html ,
Using Photoshop Elements: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/photoshopelements/using/index.html . This page has a series of web pages on what the Elements workspaces look like and how to do specific tasks, and
Photoshop Elements Organizer: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ElementsOrganizer/10.0/Using/index.html .

I wish that I could be of more help.

My computer too slow always get the not responding reply.


Eliminate Viruses and Spyware
Step 1

Run your antivirus program. There may be something slowing your computer that you can remove. It is a good idea to run your antivirus program every week.
Step 2

Remove spyware. Run a good spyware tool at least twice a month.
Step 3

Use a pop-up blocker, if you have one. Check your antivirus program.


Dispose of the Extras

Step 1

Delete your document files for anything you no longer need. Saved pictures, audio and video files in particular can slow your computer.

Step 2

Remove unwanted programs from the Control Panel area. Old toolbars or games the kids downloaded off the Internet are a good place to start. Look for software you no longer use, such as the old printer you threw out last year.

Step 3

Clean out your email. Old messages are a constant drain on your computer's resources. Go through every folder, deleting everything you do not need. Leave no mail! Finish by emptying the Deleted Items folder.

Step 4

Turn off unnecessary programs. Check your taskbar for icons that show running programs. Disable anything you are not currently using.

Run Maintenance

Step 1

Run the Disk Cleanup tool located in your Control Panel. (Windows only. For other operating systems, please check the Resources section below.) This will remove temporary files, cookies and unnecessary components to speed up your computer.

Step 2

Defragment your computer. Defragging takes some time, but will speed your computer significantly. You can find the tool in your Control Panel. Run it monthly.

Step 3

Check for disk errors. Sometimes corrupted files slow down your computer. To find and fix these files, Go to My Computer and right-click on C drive. Choose Properties, then Tools.

My pc.. desktop is very slow.. its a windows vista


You may want to look into upgrading your RAM if there is less than 2GB installed. This is a recommendation that I have found in working with several PC's running this Operating System. Also, you would want to run disk clean up and remove any temporary files that Windows finds. Deleting any other temporary or unused files from your PC on a regular basis should increase system performance. In addition, if these steps do not solve your problem, you may want to consider upgrading to a faster performance hard drive (preferably a SATA II with a 32MB cache). As a last resort, you may look at your CPU to see if there is an upgrade for it, as well. Keep in mind that Vista is a resource hog and can slow down a PC within just a short period of time.

Don't understand how to edit a long DVD that was converted from VHS. Using Adobe Premiere Elements 3


The solution offered by the FixYa expert probably would have worked but was a poor solution. I needed help with a particular piece of software - Adobe Premiere Elements and the expert by-passed my software and told me I needed to convert my video using a different piece of software to which he/she gave me the URL. After paying for FixYa help and being very uncertain about the advice, I turned to Adobe and paid them for assistance. The Adobe tech support was excellent and they were able to pinpoint the editing problem that I had encountered. I had learned how to edit the beginning or end of a video clip but not how to delete segments within a video. One solution ended up being: 1. cut the video into segments with each segment beginning or ending with unwanted material; 2. delete unwanted portions from the shorter segments

BTW - I did not need to convert my video, as the FixYa expert had indicated. It was fine, just as it was.

One problem with the FixYa "expert" was that his/her written English was very difficult to understand. It appeared that English was not this individual's native language and that he/she needed better command of English in order to give any confidence to folks needing help.

Photoshop does not work on vista


When Adobe began shipping Photoshop® Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere® Elements 3.0 software in September, final versions of Microsoft® Windows® Vista were not available to complete the testing required to ensure compatibility.
Shortly after Windows Vista becomes available to consumers, Adobe plans to release updates for Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 to provide compatibility with Windows Vista.
Updates for existing Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 owners will be available as a free download from adobe.com, and updated Vista-compatible versions of Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Premiere Elements 3.0 will become available in the same timeframe.

tnx 4 using fixya!!!

I get an error that shuts down Adobe Premiere elements


Hi Linda Green

This is a powerful piece of software and needs your P C to have some certain specs or forget it really. It sounds like that the software is detecting that you mightr need have the correct spec, or it could be the installation of the software it's self, in which case you will need to totally unistall it and then start from begkining and reinstall it. Also least likely could be a firewall, anti-virus program interfering with it, I would ask, when it closes do you get anything tellking you a reason or just the program disappearing. Check out the site below for first hand information and free bits to go with it, plus there's a list of minimum spec your computer must have for the program just to function.


http://www.adobe.com/products/premiereel/

For Windows XP: 512MB of RAM (1GB required for HD or Blu-ray)
For Windows Vista: 1GB of RAM (2GB required for HD or Blu-ray)
4.5GB of available hard-disk space
Color monitor with 16-bit color video card
1,024x768 monitor resolution at 96dpi or less
Microsoft DirectX 9 or 10 compatible sound and display driver
DVD-ROM drive (compatible DVD burner required to burn DVDs;
compatible Blu-ray burner required to burn Blu-ray Discs)
DV/i.LINK/FireWire/IEEE 1394 interface to connect a Digital 8 or DV camcorder,
or a USB2 interface to connect a DV-via-USB-compatible DV camcorder
(other video devices supported via the Media Downloader)

Freezing up


get a virus sweeping program, and see if there is a virus or worm hiding in the computer as these will drastically slow the computer down even with more ram.
