I love Adobe's Elements suite of software, but there are a couple
gothcas with the older versions.

=20

Adobe is heavy on temp files and these tend to be stored in the local
user profile in Application Data.  I haven't used the 4.0 version in a
few years so I can't remember exactly how to move the temp files, but
that might be the issue.  Try to point the whole thing to a single area
and put that on the flash drive.  Also, be sure all the media is
contained in the same folder, I know this can lead to duplicate files...
but, in my experience this tends to solve a lot of flakey issues and bad
mojo.

=20

The new version is 8.0 and you can get this as part of the Digital
School Collection for $80.  What's nice with this is that you get
Premier & Photoshop Elements, Contribute, SoundBooth AND Acrobat Pro
(Digital Portfolios made easy... wicked easy).  You can also purchase a
maintenance agreement with this so you will get the latest versions
(they update every year).   Something like this sounds like a no-brainer
for a media lab, but it gets pricey when we talk about 100s of seats.  I
did have a chat with an Adobe rep on this specific suite of software and
we could get the cost down to almost $30/seat with maintenance if we all
got together and bought as a collective (that's based on buying a few
thousand seats).

=20

Food for thought and I'm happy to work with Adobe to on this for us if
enough people are interested.

Subject: Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0

=20

I inherited many copies of Premiere Elements 4.0 for Windows and overall
I really like it.  The interface is clean and simple, and I'm really
impressed with the software's ability to quickly burn a project to DVD
(unlike iMovie).  But there's a significant problem I can't figure out
and need some help.  The students save their work to the local machine
and also copy it to a flash drive.   When their project contains .jpegs
or clips from other media, the project is fine for several days but then
parts of the project simply disappear.  The time line shows the name and
length of individual segments, but no data.  On these clips we get a
message which says some media is missing, and the program attempts to
find the files.  Nada.  This often happens when a student imports an
image and saves it to their documents and then inserts in into Premiere
Elements.  The frustrating thing is the fact the students can go back
into the project many times and continue editing, and then one day it's
all messed up.  It seems like the link to the file is broken, but I also
can't find the file anywhere in the system.  Is there some way we're
supposed to be archiving, or something else we're supposed to do to save
this work and continue editing later?  This is not an issue with content
imported from a DV tape or other student created video media, but still
images/.jpegs or clips ripped from DVDs simply disappear after a week or
so.=20=20=20
