I can't try it on version 15, but made it work on version 2019. I started a project and put a video from an external camera on the timeline. Then I went to Add Media > Webcam or WDM. I unchecked the box for adding it to the timeline. It recorded to Project Assets. Then I grabbed it with the mouse and drug it to where I wanted in the existing video. It split and moved everthing to the right to make space.
I did this with the webcam on my laptop. If you are trying to use an external camcorder it would be a little different. You would record, move the SD card to the computer, add the media and insert it.
I suspect version 15 is the same as this is not advertised as a new feature.
what i am doing is importing a video from my desktop into the timline, Then
at certain places I would like to stop the Original and do a live video
clip with webcam at those spots to insert at these Points,Then resume video
and proceed to the next point. I see what you have said and looks like
that is what I am trying to do. will try it out in the morning, Thank you
Bill, Much Appreciated
Thank you Bill, I just tried it with an audio clip and it worked pefectly.
should do the same when i record live.God Bless you, good night
Also tried to say you had the correct answer but the link back to original
post has nowhere to check the correct answer box. I tried actions but it
said no actions available. Your Answer was correct, thanks
Thanks for posting back that it worked for you. Frankly, I had no idea it would work so well!
that part worked well, but doing live video rcording has this issue. I use
add media to load webcam, and it comes on fine, but when I click the
capture/record button it says device error/driver error and the screen goes
black. I just checked the camera updates for windows and they are all
updated. any ideas for solution, thanks
Driver errors of any sort are a perplexing headache. This user forum is good at helping with the operation of Premiere Elements. Driver errors, computer malfunctions and operating system challenges are beyond the forums scope. There are too many variables to sort out by posting back and forth.
I sincerely hope you can find a webcam, camera or driver that works.
