I don't seem to be able to apply shake reduction at all. Is it because Elements doesn't seem to have an appropriate preset for this video format?
This happens with portrait or landscape video, even in a brand-new project where the clip is the only media (so my understanding is that Elements should have chosen appropriate settings based on that clip.)
Am I missing something, or would I have to generate a new preset or two by copying and tweaking the xml files for the presets?
The answer is already given in the red banner.
Clip properties does not match project settings.
Post screenshot of clip in Mediainfo in treeview.
For portrait mode:
And for landscape:
I understand that there's a mismatch. Thanks for helping me sort out what to do about it!
Not sure if you are going to solve the mismatch as the clip has an odd resolution.
1440x1080 is 4:3 is very out of the ordinairy and on top of that it has variable framerate (audio will go out of sync).
Can you upload an original clip to test (both landscape and portrait).
Thanks. I tried to drag-and-drop a video here and was told that I don't have permission to upload video. How can I get those clips to you?
FWIW, this is the default setting for iPhone XS video. Surely I can't be the only one shooting it.
Might want to change the default setting of your phone to something more like regular video if you want to edit it.
I am sorry but there is no way to fix this.
Not even by my cloning the one of the sequence preset files manually to match the video? I see they're xml files in c:\program files\adobe\adobe premier elements 2020\settings\sequence presets\...
Or by adding a preset donated by a helpful Elements Pro user?
Thanks for looking.
If I were using Premier Pro would this still be an issue?
Your phone makes very usually footage.
not only is it 4:3 but also variable framerate.
Filming in landscape and portrait is adding more issues.
Dont think Pro will solve all your problems.
