Adobe Premiere Elements 10 Review
I was privy to get my hands on Adobe’s latest version of its very own video editing software, and in an effort to see if the tenth anniversary of Adobe Premiere Elements lives up to its previous incarnations, we really gave it a thorough run-through. Does the new version live up to the Adobe name? Can it surpass previous versions in all aspects? What new toys will you be able to play with in this version, to make your movie really stand out? Find out all this and more in this review.
Now the big key to Adobe’s Premiere Elements' video editing software is its ease of use. This version is no different. No matter what skill level you are, you'll find yourself in little to no time editing your home movies with full transitions, titles, and effects — the whole deal. If you ever need some help, they have a small pop-up screen that gives you tips and tricks as you move along.
With this edition, you get full 64-bit support, as well as the popular AVCHD format, meaning you can burn DVD’s with Blu-ray quality. Color correction and enhancement tools are even simpler and more powerful. Plus, you can also now directly upload to Facebook. But does all this make it the big dog in the Video Editing world?
Sure you get your boost where you needed it over the last version; however, the rending and previewing of digital moves lacks behind some of the other video editing software out on the market. Premiere Elements has a very well designed interface, and its organizational skills are second to none. Not only that, you get automatic video tagging and people tagging. You can’t beat that at all. It seems more than capable of handling all of your video editing needs.
As you start up Premiere Elements, you get its Welcome screen. From there you can open or start a new project, or you can open up the Organizer app that you also get with Photoshop Elements 10. I am not a huge fan of this, as it is one more step between me and my video editing. The upside to this is that you can designate a folder for Organizer to keep watch on and import anything new that you might collect, whether it be photos or videos.Continued on the next page
