When you play or export digital video from the Timeline in Adobe Premiere Elements to an outdated IEEE1394 (FireWire/i.LINK) device, it can stutter or play too fast. 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occur if system components aren't optimized or don't meet the requirements for digital video, or if device drivers are outdated.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 Element. 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 the cause of the problem.
Work through these tasks if video plays too fast, stutters, or appears to drop frames. 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.
