When you play or export digital video from the Timeline in Adobe Premiere Elements to an IEEE1394 (FireWire/i.LINK) digital video device (for example, a camera), video or audio play may stutter or play too fast if you use outdated DirectX and IEEE 1394 components. These problems can also occur if system components aren't optimized or don't meet the requirements for digital video, or if device drivers are outdated. Microsoft system components provide digital video support in Adobe Premiere Elements; the interaction among these components and with the system determines the quality of digital video playback. Although playback problems may occur in Adobe Premiere Elements, Adobe Premiere Elements may not be the cause of the problem.
Work through these tasks if video plays too fast, stutters, or appears to drop frames when you attempt export to a digital video device or play from the Timeline. After you complete each task, export or play the rendered digital video from the Premiere Elements Timeline to determine if the problem is resolved.
