I made a video that was too dark and so utilized an adjustment layer.  Other than taking a day and a half to render, there were no other issues.  The preview was perfect, but when I burned the DVD and played it, the audio was fine, the text layer was fine but the entire video was grass green.  No image anywhere. I saved a new copy with no adjustment layer, burned it, and it is totally fine.   Can anyone help me fix this?  Using Premiere Elements 2018 with Windows 10.  Thankyou.

Does it play this way on your computer as well as your DVD player?

Then the issue is with how your disc player is reading the disc. It has nothing to do with the software.

Most DVD and BluRay players can play home-burned DVDs, but some still have problems doing so. (Sonys are notorious for not being able to do so.) Home-burned DVDs use a very different process to write data to discs than commercial DVDs do.

Try playing the disc on a friends DVD player and see if you get the same result.

There are things you can do to minimize problems. A good brand of discs, like Verbatim, can help. You can also try burning your DVD at a slower speed. It might help.

But if the disc plays fine on your computer but not on a DVD player, the issue is not software related.

I feel very foolish.  You did ask if the disc would play on the computer

and somehow I interpreted that as Does the file play OK on the

computer.  Yes, the file plays fine, however, the disc plays green no

matter what computer or DVD player it's in.  I tried several.  I'm using

high quality TDK blank discs.  On the file at every place that was cut

and stitched together there is a small transparent green place on the

video layer (This is a video of a piano recital so I cut out all the

down time between students getting up to play).  Not on the adjustment

layer, text layer or audio layer, just the video layer.   The render

line across the entire file is green so it's not like it isn't rendered

properly. Hope the picture is helpful and can give someone a clue as to

what is happening.  Thanks for your patience and continued help.

I don't know why that would be, p.

You are outputting your DVD from Premiere Elements, right?

If you'd like to experiment, I recommend this: Export & Share your completed movie as a 720x480 MPEG-PS file. Play this video in a program like VLC Media Player to ensure it has not problems. If so, open an new project and lay this MPEG on the timeline and output your DVD from this project.

If you've done a lot of work building your DVD menus and scene markers and don't want to have to do it all again, you can simply to a Save As and save a copy of your project. Then delete everything on your timeline and place this MPEG on your timeline. All of your markers and menus will still be in place on this copy of your project and, if your MPEG looks good, you should get a perfect DVD from this file.

Thanks for the suggestion. Not sure if I will have time today to try that as my day was already packed but I am desperate to figure this out so will try it soon. It is something with the adjustment layer since I saved it without the layer and burned the disc and it played just fine. Pretty bizarre. Thanks again. I will let you know if that helps.

And yes, I was outputting from premiere elements. I don’t think I ever mentioned that the title screen plays perfectly. It’s when the video starts that it instantly obliterates the picture with grass green!

So I finally had time to mess with it and saved it as you suggested in

the MPEG-PS format.  Took two full days to encode and just played it now

in VLC and it's still just as grass green as ever.  No picture.  Just

text on a green background.  Any other ideas come to mind?

Can you output a segment of it and post it to YouTube with a link here so we can see it?

Also, Bob's question is a good one. What has been applied to that Adjustment Layer?

The room was dark and had a yellowish light to it so the video needed to

be brightened and the cast made less yellow.  That was all I changed.

So the craziest thing happened.  I was going to cut and delete all but a

track on the timeline so I saved it with a new name and cut it to one

segment and burned it and it's not green!!  So I'm going to try burning

the whole thing again and see if somehow saving it with a different name

and reopening it did some magic to it.  Takes two days to encode so I

will give you my results when I'm done.  Since it always played just

fine on the computer, I'm not sure how posting a segment on YouTube

would be terribly helpful, but if it doesn't burn correctly this time

and you think it would help to see it on YouTube I will most certainly

do that. I am beyond frustrated with this whole thing.  Sure have

appreciated your help.

If it's really taking two days to encode, something is definitely wrong somewhere. At most, on a reasonably powered computer, rendering should take maybe twice the running time of the movie. On my i7, it takes me maybe 15 minutes to render a 30 minute movie.

So I'm not sure if you want to continue as is at this point or if you want to troubleshoot the project by going back to square one and discussing basic video specs and project settings.

But no one should have to endure a two-day rendering time for a simple 60 minute movie. I suspect something is wrong at a fundamental level.

So I took your advice and dumped the whole thing and started over.   I

dropped the files into the timeline. They were fine except too dark and

yellow.  Did the guided fixes so that I for sure did it correctly and

there it is... even green on my computer screen now.

It probably wasn't necessary to dump the whole thing and start from scratch.

Going to square one means troubleshooting the process one step at a time.

1. Where is your original footage from? What model of camcorder?

2. Open one of your original videos in the free download MediaInfo and paste the specs to this forum, as I describe in this tutorial.

Using MediaInfo - YouTube

Once we know the specs of your video, we can consider the optimal project settings to work with this video.
