Thanks for your response.

Yes, Premiere Elements 3.0.2 patch has been applied. However, didn’t know that 3.0.2 has limited HDV support. Will certainly consider upgrading to version 7 but understand that to encode directly using PE7 some fairly hefty computer power is necessary. This I think I have so maybe PE7 is the answer. As far as transcoding to .AVI files is concerned, have tried that but PE3 would not recognise them. I believe that AVI is just a container for a number of different file structures, so maybe I do not yet have the appropriate codec/s installed.

Interestingly, I met two other people today who have recently bought HD camcorders. Neither have yet attempted to edit their clips. I wished themthe best ofluck.

Shot 81 new clips today. Will transcode them (to WMV for now using Roxio) tomorrow & drop them into Windows Movie Maker & Roxio Creator 9video editors just to see whether the same problem occurs. If not, andhaving used15 clips in them both to date without problems, then I will have to consider whether the Roxio application will be adequate formy requirementsor whether I need to buyPE7.

A recent article in Personal Computer World would suggest that the general problem of successfully editing some HD file content is somewhat serious – anyway will continue to try.

Thanks again.
