Adobe Premiere Elements 4 is the best of the 2007 enthusiast-level video editing software packages on the market... but that really isn't saying much. Media editing on the PC is EXTREMELY frustrating because ALL of the software at the hobbyist/enthusiast level is either 1) buggy, 2) difficult to use, or 3) both. In fact, it is hard to say that Premiere Elements 4 is the "best" of the 2007-released programs out there; it would be more accurate to say that the other video editors that came out in 2007 perform at levels lower than PE4. A few examples include...

Sony Vegas Movie Studio 8 - Confusing and counter-intuitive interface as well as incompatibility with certain OS-aspects and hardware make this editor a no-go for most.

Pinnacle Studio 11 - Extremely buggy, poor rendering, and reports of system corruption (??? check out the reviews and newsgroup posts!) will keep most away.

Windows Movie Maker - Version 6 (or three if you aren't going by OS numbering) isn't available for XP... just Vista. 6 doesn't have the power and versatility of Premiere Elements, but it is vastly improved over the XP version. Windows Movie Maker 6 is worth checking if you have Vista, because most version of the OS get it for free (XP also contains the older version of both it and Media Encoder).

Roxio Easy Media Creator Suite 10 - Roxio, best known for DVD and CD burning software, adds media editing to their suite. Sadly, it crashes so often that it creates more frustration than fun. Almost non-existant tech support and months without a patch are signs that this is software to avoid.

You'd think it would be easy to recommend Premiere Elements 4 with such poor competition, but it is not. On release, PE4 has shown itself to be buggy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best in class October 26, 2007
I don't usually write reviews for products but I felt compelled to after reading the damning reviews from other users.

PE4 isn't a perfect product but it far surpasses any of the other products in this class that I've used, including several generations of Windows Movie Maker, Ulead VideoStudio, Ulead Movie Factory and Pinnacle Studio.

I'm using an Intel Dual-Core 2.4GHz system with 2GB RAM and a 250GB HDD running Win Vista Home Premium 32-bit. My computer OS environment is definitely not a "clean install" as I do a lot of software development on it as well as a lot of audio / video / photo editing. I had no trouble installing PE4 and it ran fine out of the box. I've been testing the software pretty thoroughly for the past couple of days building AVI's and burning several DVD's from video clips and photos and have had very few problems. The program has crashed and locked up 2 times, once while scrubbing through a complex transition between 2 videos and another time while editing some text for titles. There's no question that this is an annoyance but the high-end features that you get for under $100 are unbeatable IMHO. The level of customization is unparalleled when handling text, menus, audio and motion effects. Some of the interface elements are a little unintuitive at first but a few quick glances at the Help file circumvented any major dilemnas. Most of the interface is what you'd expect from Adobe - professional and slick.

The effects and transitions render well and the text / fonts for titles look sharp and impressive. The supplied templated menus are a little cheesy and the motion-type menus from Windows MM and Ulead are much nicer. I wish Adobe had spent a little more time here to give users a richer, more polished set of menus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works on my XP computer, Great DVD quality November 10, 2007
Verified Purchase
I bought this software to replace my older Pinnacle 10 software because it had poor DVD quality when viewing on the new LCD flat screen TV's, kind of like watching through Venetian blinds. I re-made some Pinnacle 10 videos using PE4. The DVD quality is now excellent.

When I first used the capture feature, I had trouble with it. I didn't find any info in the troubleshooting or knowledge base, so I called customer support. They connected me with a guy who really knew his stuff. He walked me through some tests and after removing some stray files from the pinnacle 10 uninstall and fixing a windows registry, all was well. A+ for customer support!

As of now, I made five DVD videos using all features without crashes. I like how you can add as many audio and video layers in the timeline as needed. You can pre-render sections with multiple layers to allow for smooth preview. On my older machine, this really helps. I don't have an HD camcorder, but I did import a MPEG4 HD file made off my HDTV wonder tuner card just as a test. I was able to edit it and burn to re-writable DVD. The picture quality wasn't HD, but as good as any store bought DVD.

Hardware/Software:
Camcorder- Sony, DCR TRV950 using IEEE1394 DV capture
Computer- 2.8GHz Pentium 4
Memory- 2G DDR
Video Card- ATI, Radeon 9800 pro w/128M RAM, 8X AGP
Tuner- ATI, HDTV Wonder
Hard Drives- Two 250G EIDE
OS- Windows XP home edition
Video capture and editing- Adobe Premier Elements 4
Still picture editing- Adobe Photoshop 6
Vector drawing- CorelDraw 11
