Hi community!

I use the german version of Premiere Elements Windows 10 Pro, so maybe some things will not be trranslated exactly.

I have this problem with the settings for the location of preview files (video and audio preview):

- The default setting for this preferences is "Same as project"

- I change the settings to a directory on another disk, assume e.g. "D:\Premiere_Preview"

- I create a new project, make all project settings, save the project

- I check the preferences and they point still to "D:\Premiere_Preview"

- I import media, put it into the timeline and do some "Render"

- The preview files are correctly stored below the "D:\Premiere_Preview" directory within a new directory with the name of the project (ProjectName.PRV)

- I save the project

- I exit Premiere Elements

- I check the "D:\Premiere_Preview" directory and the rendered files are still there

- I restart Premiere Elements and load the project

- The render areas on the timeline now have changed their color from green to orange (same like not rendered)

- I check the preferences and they don't point to "D:\Premiere_Preview" anymore, instead their setting is back to "Same as project"

 

I have tested this on two different Windows 10 systems, the problem is the same on both systems.

Any ideas what is going on here?

Regards from Vienna / Austria

Others have also complained about this. I don't know if there is a solution.

Hi Steve,

thank you for your answer!

Maybe some comes up with an idea...

By the way: I want to say thank you for your really great and absolutely useful "Muvipix.com Guides". I already had the two Guides for Premiere Elements 2018 and recently I bought the new Guide for Premiere Elements 2020 and for Photoshop Elements 2020 - Great Books!

Regards

Johannes
