I've been getting the full version of Premiere Elements since yesterday.
I can insert videos and play them normally in the preview, without any problems, but as soon as I pre-render a video, it is completely pixeled in the preview, so I can't see anything, especially font.
When you publish, however, it renders normally, it is difficult to edit like this
(Background story: I already had the test version once, everything worked perfectly, now I reinstalled windows after a long time and bought the full version and unfortunately I have this error.
I have already reinstalled Adobe Premiere several times.)
I hope you can see the difference on the pictures, otherwise I'd like to upload more.
I hope you have a great day, Lukas
First, remember that a rendered preview is only a preview. It is not high quality, so it may not look as good as your final movie.
But that said, what can you tell us about the video you have added to the timeline? the orange line above it along the top of the timeline indicates that it does not match your project's settings.
What model of camcorder is this video coming from? What is the video's resolution and format?
Yes I know that, but the not-rendered preview looks a lot better than the rendered one and that's not right either, or am I wrong? At least it was normal with the trial version.
The Video, is just a normal test-gameplay video
The video is just a test shot of a game (Arma 3).
As a recording program I use Geforce Experience/Shadowplay.
bit rate: 25Mbps
(It should be almost exactly the same settings as in the trial version, where everything worked fine)
Here is a video, which I played without rendered preview.
Then with rendered preview.
(Ps. on youtube it seems to be a little bit better than it actually is)
The program will not be able to match those non-standard, non-camcorder specs. Because of that your video is going to look compromised.
Thank you for your quick answer!
But what does that mean?
I made a short 1080P recording and tested it, but unfortunately I didn't change anything.
Is there anything I can do about it?
Or do I have to get a new display?

You can try running the video through the free video converter Handbrake, which will turn it into an editable MP4. Though I don't know if you want to make that a regular part of your workflow.
But as I said, the marriage between Shadowplay video and Premiere Elements will not be a happy one.
Okay, I'll try it out, thank you for all the quick answers.
Have a nice day!
