Premiere Elements title templates typically come in 4 varieties for a given theme: credits, frame, lower3rd, and title. For now, this blog is focusing on the title variant of each theme.
If a Premiere Elements 13/13.1 project uses the title template named RedBulbs_title and is saved closed, every time that project is reopened the message "Where is the File Business Title_7.tga?" will appear before the project opens. Clicking "Skip" to the message will open the project with this title template intact and the message gone, so this is more of a nuisance than a fatal error. This problem was not found to exist in Premiere Elements 12/12.1 Windows* for the counterpart title templates. And, transferring "good theme folders" from 12/12. to 13/13.1 does not resolve the matter.
For other _title choices like beachresort_title, the message would be "Where is the File Tropical_7.tga?"
How to get rid of the "Where is the File Business Title_7.tga?" and "Where is the File Tropical_7.tga?" messages is the question.
The solution is to create the .tga file being looked for and add it to the theme's Folder. Two examples of the "fix" are described below using Premiere Elements 13/13.1 on Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit.
"Where is the file 'Business Title_7.tga'?"
In the case of the RedBulb_title accessed under Titles & Text Tab/General go to the
Local Disk C
and, in the RedBulbs Folder, find the file named RedBulbs_title_prv.png and make a copy of it that you paste into the Red Bulbs Folder. Then rename the copy Business Title_7.tga. The job is done.
"Where is the File 'Tropical_7.tga?'"
In the case of the beachresort_title accessed under Titles & Text/Travel, go to the
Local Disk c
and, in the Beach Resort Folder, find the file named beachresort_title_prv.png and make a copy of it that you paste into the Beach Resort Folder. Then rename the copy Tropical_7.tga. The job is done.
The why for this situation is not known to us. The above works unless you just want to click "Skip" to the message. In that scenario, the project will open with the title template intact although you went through the detour of the message.
A listing of the _title title templates affected is in preparation.
