I have been uploading surgical videos into Premiere Elements 14 from the same camera for years. Recently, when I upload them, the upload with a dark black shadow. Screen shot shows how the look in normal video player, and how they look with uploaded into Premiere Elements 14. Anyone know what is going on?
Could your "Auto Analyzer" function been engaged or applied?
Looks to me like you selected the option to add Videomerge.
Select the clip on your timeline and and click the Applied Effects button along the right side of the program. Locate Videomerge and remove it from the clip.
This type of things is easier to deal with in Expert view, of course, but the effect's application and removal is the same.
Yes! That was it! Thank you. I don't know how "videomerge" became turned on, but as soon as I turned it off, everything was back to normal
