Hi Guys,

Does anyone know if the Premiere Elements 15 will be compatible with my MacBook Pro Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013 (MacOS Sierra version 10.12.3) ?

I will be using it for short 4K video editing. My camcorder is Sony FDR-AX100.

Thank you.

Kind of depends on what processor you have and with how much RAM.

But it definitely should have no problems running on a Macbook Pro.

An  i5 may struggle a bit with longer 4k video, but it may also be just fine.

I'd recommend downloading the free trial and giving it a test drive with your footage.

Thank you for your suggestion. Really aprreciate.

I downloaded the free trail and try it out. But the 4k video (was a 48 second clip) was jerky/choppy during play back. The video freeze again and again during play back

Is there a yellow-orange "render" line above the first clip you added to your timeline? This indicates that the program did not properly match its project settings to your video specs, which can result in poor performance. This often happens when the video is MOV. Is your video 3840x2160? is it MOV?

Hi, yes, it was a 4K file mov (3840 × 2160), but it doesnt have any orange or yellow lines on the clip. The playback was choppy and freezes on the timeline. Kind of difficult to watch the clip during the editing. After the basic colour editing, i saved the project as 3840 × 2160 mp4 on my macbook pro and it plays smoothly on the VCL player.

You're in Quick View. You won't see any render lines in Quick View.

Switch to Expert View and see if there are yellow orange render lines above your clips. (The watermark in the preview panel seems to indicate you will.)

You still haven't told me if your video file format is MOV, MP4 or some other format, but that is relevant.

Hi, I don't see any orange render line on top of the timeline but there are 2 yellow lines in between.

The original file format imported from my sony camcorder to my macbook pro is MP4
