2.0 out of 5 stars What it does, it does pretty well...sometimes November 29, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
The more I use this program, the less I like it. I'm sure it's OK for really simple stuff (so is Windows MovieMaker, which is free) but Adobe really fell down on many, many basic things here. The point is this: if you're going to include a feature, make sure it works..right...all the time. In other words, don't promise what you can't deliver. I started it at 3 stars; I'm downgrading it to two. I would quit and use something else, but I have too much time and energy invested in my project so I'm going to have to tough it out.

If you are used to PhotoShop CS or Elements, and expecting even a decent PhotoShop experience, forget it. This program is a frustrating mix of the familiar and a failure to deliver both the familiar and the logical. (I make frequent reference to PhotoShop because many basic features of PS could have been incorporated and weren't. It's not as if no one at Adobe were aware of the possibilities. Or maybe all those guys retired and didn't leave any notes?)

Here are just a few of the serious limitations. I have noted these more or less as they came up, although I've tried to organized them to some degree. But any incoherence mirrors the incoherence of the program and its whims.

Missing instructions in the Manual. This is a huge time-waster, forcing you to spend hours on the internet trying to track down answers that should have been provided. Example: from APE11 on, the previously Pro-only feature of "Time Remapping" is included. Great news! I could hardly wait to try it. So I opened the PDF Manual (or "Tutorial" as Adobe prefers to call it--hedging their bets?--we never promised you a Manual?) and did a search for "Time Remapping.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice step up from Premiere Elements 10 October 19, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The program comes with two disks, one for Mac and one for Windows. However, unlike some other Adobe products, Lightroom for instance, Premiere Elements does not allow concurrent use on Mac and PC. I chose to install it on a Windows PC. Installation took 8 minutes and included a reboot. One welcome relief was no longer being required to install the separate content DVD. After installation, I was greeted by a box saying that sign in with an Adobe ID was required. It warned that the program would stop working in 7 days if I did not sign in with an Adobe ID. So, I treid to do so and it kept failing, saying i had no internet connection. I opened and refreshed several browser pages and sent/received several test emails to verify browser and application Internet access. I waited a few minutes and the program finally connected to the Internet and successfully registered with my Adobe ID. Signing in with an Adobe ID is mandatory and part of the licensing scheme. That's how I found out the program doesn't allow simultaneous Mac and PC use. I needed to capture some footage specifically on my iMac but iMovie has not worked properly since I upgraded to OSX Mavericks. After installing Premiere Elements on my iMac, it deactivated the version on my PC as soon as I signed into my Adobe account. Upon finishing the project, I signed out of Premiere on the iMac and it allowed me to reactivate the software on my PC.

Coming from PreE10, the Interface has changed dramatically. The welcome screen is different and thankfully still offers the option to boot directly to the editor or organizer if you desire. Both the organizer and editing environments are cleaner and neater.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise! July 29, 2014
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
My Premier Pro CS6, which I used for my animations, has started to bug up, probably because of Windows 8.1, so I really needed something to replace it but despaired of finding anything I could afford. I really didn't think "Elements" was going to come anywhere near Premier Pro, thought it was for amateur home movie makers, and all the negative reviews I read here discouraged me even more. But you can't even buy Premier Pro CC on a disc, they want to rent it to you from the cloud for $50/month or whatever! Somebody should tell Adobe that everybody doesn't have unlimited bandwidth to play with. The cloud is out of reach if you're on wireless.

But I had to do something so I downloaded a free trial of Elements 12 from Adobe's website.--And I was amazed! After a half hour or so of figuring out how to use it I discovered that in the Expert mode I could do everything with it that I've been doing with Pro CS4 all these years--syncing audio with video, multiple audio and video tracks, transitions, titles, color correction, keying, etc. So then I went back to Amazon and bought it here for $59 instead of the $99 one at Adobe. (It was easy downloading and installing the trial from Adobe but had a LOT of trouble downloading from Amazon. However, all I needed was the license key so I ended up just registering the trial.)

So I don't know what all the bitching is about. I've been using it several months now and so far no crashes or freezing up or anything. Everything works very smoothly and intuitively, and it's so nice to be able to see the waveforms in the audio tracks in the timeline-- which is what stopped working in PPro CS6. So I'm very happily surprised to have been able to update my video editor at a reasonable price.
