002. Movie Menu "Outdoor Adventure"
The Movie Menu named Outdoor Adventure continues to be flawed with patches of media offline footage. See HERE for details.
003. The "Best Fit" Automatic Setting Of Adobe Project Presets In 15 Versus 14/14.1.
- The Adobe NTSC and PAL project presets are the same for 15 and 14/14.1
- There is no place during the program installation for user to set for a NTSC or PAL TV Format
- If an imported video's properties do not match one of the existing Adobe project presets, the program grabs a "closest fit" project preset rather than defaulting to NTSC AVCHD Full HD1080i30 project preset as it did in earlier versions of Premiere Elements. Version 15 and 14/14.1 appear to behave the same in this regard. See HERE for more details on "closest fit" and "default" project presets.
Premiere Elements supports H.264 4K 3840 x 2160, but not 4096 x 2160. To consider...one suggested way for editing 4K 4096 x 2160 video
- set the project preset manually (File Menu/New/Project) to the 3840 x 2160 (NTSC AVCHD- QFHD-16 x 9 29.99)
- and, at export, use Export & Share/Device/Custom (including Advanced Settings for H.264, Square Pixels, 4096 x 2160 with width and height not linked), Profile = High, Level = 5.2.
005. Premiere Elements 15: The Imported Audio Clip's Duration Displayed In Project Assets And In The Timeline
The details in the blog post "PE 12: Audio Display Formats - Audio Samples and Milliseconds" found HERE applies to Premiere Elements 12 through 15. Consequently, please refer to that blog's Table named Premiere Elements 12 for 15 data.
The user is accustomed to video clip duration displaying in the format 00;00;00;00 (hours;minutes;seconds;frames). In contrast, audio clip duration displaying as 00;03;20;38880 or 00;03;20.881 is pointed to and discussed.
Work in progress.
