Video randomly pauses when first viewed in Premiere Elements

 I just got the latest Elements/Premiere 2022 package a couple weeks ago.  When making a video and inserting a couple clips on the time line and then viewing it I notice at times the video will pause until I hit the start arrow buton again.  Once I save (export?) the video I never have any pauses and all seems fine.  Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?  I typically have the camera video setting at 29fps and shutter speed set at 1/60th.  I pick an aperture I deem appropriate, shoot in manual mode and set the ISO for automatic mode. Any help for a video novice would be appreciated.

Elements is not interested in shutterspeed or iso.

Elements is more interested in framerate, framesize and compression.

A 2.6 mhz what? Which processor do you have? It makes a big difference.

 

Also, what device created your MOV file and what is this file's resolution and frame rate? 

 

When you add this video to your timeline, is the line along the top of the timeline yellow or orange?

 

These are very important factors in determining why your system is playing erratically.

I don't see a yellow or orange line in the timeline area.  The vertical line which moves left to right is red.  Only real color I see.

To add to previous post:

 

The only time it hangs up and I need to hit play button again is the first time I view clips after dropping thm on time tine.  Once I save the file (or export) it never hangs up.  Again this is my first time at using this and shooting video so much of what I am doing is simply using whatever default settings there are.

All I - footage should not produce a colored renderbar.

It should run smoothly.

Make sure the project settings match the footage framerate and framesize.

Thanks to all for the comments.  Problem solved (sort of).  I had been in Expert mode and I would drag and drop clips onto the timeline.  Apparently this takes some accuracy or skill (I plead guilty). But the hangup was never at the seam of two clips but in the middle of a clip somewhere.  I changed the program to Quick mode and the program drops everything in perfectly.  I tried several different clips and not one hang up.  All this was confusing as I do some fairly heavy Photoshop work and thought I had enough power to run video, and I could run every clip in Lightroom glitch free.  Again - I just started in video when I got the Elements/Premiere package recently, so I'm very early in the learning curve.  I appreciate everyone's patience.

"I would drag and drop clips onto the timeline.  Apparently this takes some accuracy or skill (I plead guilty)."

 

Right click in the Expert mode timeline window and make sure the Snap box is checked.  It will significantly improve the accuracy while reducing the skill level.

Bill - 

Thanks for the valuable tip.  This is obviously the correct forum to solve issues.

You might enjoy that Premiere Elements has a unique feature.   If you turn on the XMP sidecar function in Lightroom Classic and import RAW files ("Add Media") with those XMP files, Premiere Elements will "see" and use the adjustments you made.  In otherwords, slideshows can be made from RAWs without any intermediate steps.    Premiere Pro, nor any other editor I know of, can do this!

There have been instances where audio processing loads the system enough to slow things down.   To be sure that it is not, double check the Default Input for Audio Hardware is set to "No Input".    (Edit > Preferences > Audio Hardware > Default Input)

 

There are also choices in the General Preferences area.   Look at Hardware Acceleration, GPU Use and Timeline Render Quality.   Change them to whatever they are not, and see if there is improvement.

Ann - 

When you say framerate do you mean 59, 29, 23 settings?  My cameras menu allows those numbers for either 4K or 1080 shooting.  They each respectively have All-I or IPB for each of those numbers.  Where do I set frame size? Forgive the rookie question.

I think Ann will confirm this, but frame size in this case, means "HD" of 1920x1080 or "4K" of 3840x2160.  (Those are pixels!)

Again thanks Bill.  I use the smaller 1080 vs 4K.  Gradually learning the video terminology (yesterday I had to look up "Rendering").  Works fine for my use.  My Canon owners manual said that All-I was better for editing so I went with that.

I had to look that up.  Apparantly that is a unique to Canon choice.   It has to do with the necessary compression needed in video files.  One will make smaller files than the other.   

I don't have a Canon camera so can't test this.  It MIGHT be that you are picking the compression that is the hardest to process and it might be slowing the previews in your computer.   My guess is that for typical screen sizes you won't see a quality difference.   


This article suggests that you use "All-I" for smoother video edit processing.   https://www.canon.com.hk/cpx/en/technical/va_EOS_Movie_Compression_Options_All_I_and_IPB.html

The computer I built in 2014 was almost $3k and was a LOT less computer... due to the advances in components since then, and because 7 years ago I could not justify (to myself) spending more than I did to replace a really old computer

 

January 2021 total with tax and shipping was $2,103 (cost IS now higher!)
When I was buying components I wanted an RTX2060 with 6Gig to be sure of smooth timeline playback... I had to buy a GTX1650 with 4Gig because nobody had the 2060 in stock... My 4k test didn't have any timeline 'glitches' so I didn't need the 2060 Especially since I normally edit 1280x720 30fps video from a Canon SX510 camera

 

My next hurdle will be the end of Win10 support in 2025 and Windows 11 when, based on my testing, I will have to either buy a new motherboard or completely re-configure the one I have now so it boots from an SSD instead of the M.2 'stick' on the motherboard
