Can anyone please tell me why the render feature in my Adobe Premiere Elements 11 freezes up at exactly 100 of 1800 frames? (Yes, it's old, but it's all I've got to work with right now.)
I am editing a 1-minute video comprised entirely of high-resolution photos and I am using numerous motion effects.
I've tried rendering the whole timeline. I've tried rendering only small parts of the timeline. I've shut down all unnecessary background apps on my computer. I've tried everything I can think of and nothing works.
Until version 12 or so, Premiere Elements had trouble down-scaling higher resolution photos. We used to recommend that before using a photo in Premiere Elements, you downsize your photo to no larger than 2000x1500 pixels in size, or 2500x1875 for high-def video. How large are your photos, measuring the width and height in pixels?
Though you're only working with 60 seconds of video and your rendering is choking at the same point over and over, so you may have something else going on that's bugging things up. Have you tried starting a new project and adding 60 seconds worth of photos there to see if you get exactly the same issue?
BTW, I'm assuming you've got a decently powered computer with a current operating system and that you've got at least 50-80 gigs of free, clean space on your hard drive.
