Hi! I have a problem with Premiere Elements 2020, where sometimes the program will say it will finish exporting in 55:01 minutes (as an example) and then go back and forth between 55:01 and 55:00 for about eight hours. I once tried to export a video and it did this for about two days before it finally finished exporting. I tried closing Premiere Elements, thinking maybe it had froze or stopped repsonding. However, it got to relatively the same point when I reopened and restarted the export when it started stuttering the export again. I've noticed that this only tends to happen with my videos whose time before editing is an hour and thirty minutes or more. Was elements just not meant to handle videos this large? Has anyone else encountered this? If so, how did you fix it (or can it be fixed)?
I'm guessing. You might be running low on disk space or RAM. Premiere Elements needs space to generate temporary files during the output process. If anything is running in the background, not all of the RAM will be available and Windows will "disk swap" between RAM and the HDD which is a slow process. Look for anything that might be open in the background.
