When use an outdated IEEE1394 digital video device (FireWire/i.LINK) with Adobe Premiere Elements 7, video or audio play can stutter or play too fast. These issues can occur when you play back video or export it from the Timeline. 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occur if system components aren't optimized or don't meet the requirements for digital video, or if device drivers are outdated.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 can occur in Adobe Premiere Elements, Adobe Premiere Elements isn't necessarily cause of the problem.
Work through these tasks if video plays too fast, stutters, or drops frames when you 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 Adobe Premiere Elements Timeline to determine if the problem is resolved.
