I'm using Premiere Elements 17 to create a DVD composed of both video and still images. I'm used this application to create multiple productions using identical media.
When I attempted to burn the disc it encoded the files but the application hangs up when it's time to create the iso file.
The production is 34 minutes long and requires 2.33 GB of space. I've created several shows of this size or larger.
We have 19 people coming over in one week to see this show so I really need to figure out what the issue is.
Premiere Elements 17 is actually Premiere Elements 2019, BTW.
How much free, clean, defragmented space is on your hard drive?
Your DVD may only be ultimately 2.33 gigs of space, but much more space is required -- much of it contiguous -- is necessary for the program to process and transcode the video.
If you've done this successfully in the past but can't now, it's most likely because your drive no longer has the large chunks of free space necessary for the process.
I purchase a new version of Elements every two years and since the folders for the last three versions were labeled 13.0, 15.0 and 17.0 I guess I referred to the current version incorrectly. Sorry
The issue didn't appear to be related to space or fragmentation of my hard drive. I checked and my hard drive is in very good shape.
I finally got through the creation of the ISO file by closing a couple of applications that were running in the background. Once I did that all went well.
Thanks for the prompt response. We really enjoy the Elements applications and hope to continue using them in the future.
It could also be a RAM issue.
FWIW the cause you're describing does indicate you've got a resource or space issue -- so it's likely going to happen again.
