Stee,
Done. I think I see what is wrong - it does not like my file extension. How do I fix that

Steve,
With the MOV files extension, it said FileExtension_Invalid:dv dif

So I changed it back to DV and here is the result:

Unfortunately, I don't see a thing in this report that would indicate problems with this file. It's a perfect DV file, and it should work flawlessly in Premiere Elements.

BTW, do you have Quicktime 7 installed? If not, it might be worth installing it to see if it makes any difference -- since your file may have Quicktime elements in it.

Once you install Quicktime 7, you can browse into your Program Files (x86)/Quicktime folder and change QuicktimePlayer.exe to QuicktimePlayer.old -- just so Quicktime Player's vulnerabilities won't be exposed. It's the other components you need.

Steve, shows how many levels of complexity this stuff can have. I am currently running Quick time Version 10.4 on my MacBook.
I am still able to make some adjustments to the lighting, temperature, tint, etc. But I've seen what the Smart Fix can do and these old videos need all of the help I can give them. Thanks for reviewing my issue.

Oh, you're on a Mac! That's pretty relevant!

May I suggest that you add your computer's technical specs as a signature (under User Control Panel, at the top of this forum). That way, whenever you have a question, we won't have to ask what your computer's configuration is or make mistakes in assumption.

Technical specs added. Sorry for the omission as it is very important.
