5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one folks...really the one! December 6, 2010
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
I'll start off by stating that I am just an everyday dad who wants to take the HD videos he shoots of family vacations, kids' birthdays, fishing trips, etc and transfer them to DVD without any loss in quality. I am not out to produce the next "Citizen Kane" nor am I out to challenge Steven Spielberg to a directorial throwdown.

I do not want to have to convert files, combine files, or compress files. I just want to transfer my family memories to disc for future viewing. If I can also chop out those moments when I forgot to turn the camcorder off and you get a good view of what footwear everyone was wearing that day, even better. If I can also include a title screen, with a neat little visual of what's on that disc, with an area where you click "play" to start the video, better still.

This sounds like a fairly simple request, no? Nevertheless, I have had trouble finding video editing software that will do this in a straightforward and simple fashion. I have bought Corel Ulead VideoStudio 11.5 Plus and Corel VideoStudio Express 2010. I have also tried Windows Movie Maker and have downloaded trials of PowerDirector 8 Ultra and Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum. They all either produced bad images, required video conversions, froze up, locked up, or spit up. As far as my hardware, my PC consists of a Quad Core i7 chip with six GB of RAM and with Windows 7 64-bit.

I was scanning Amazon one day and noticed that Adobe Premier had among the highest reviews when compared to the other options and was decently priced (with a rebate). After my other experiences, I decided to download their trial version before I made the purchase. I was elated with the results.

Finding the files (which were raw, .

4.0 out of 5 stars Being a novice, I like this editor October 31, 2010
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There seem to be multiple negative reviews for this version of Adobe Premiere Elements 9, but nearly all come from people who have much more experience than I do with previous versions of the software, or who have used competing software. I can't possibly disagree with these reviewers, because I lack their experience.

However, from the perspective of a novice user who has accumulated a lot of videos and photos over the years, and having had a chance to experiment with Adobe Premiere Elements 9, I have to say that I'm quite happy with it. In short, here's what I liked:
1) The organizer was good at helping me find all the videos and photos I have scattered on my hard drive, including videos imported from an old analog video camera, from a newer (but non-HD) digital video camera, and from an earlier (also non-HD) Flip camera. All of these are easy to "drag and drop" into a video project. I am an avid Picasa user, and I have mixed feelings about letting two pieces of software do all the cataloging of my videos. I'm not sure what to do...perhaps I'll give up on Picasa?

2) The editor was fun! I had never played around with various video effects (though I have tried such effects on photos). I'm looking forward to experimenting with the chroma key effect (my 10-year-old son enjoys trying green screen experiments), reversing video clips, and so on. There are some extra effects available if I pay to become a plus member, but it seems there are ample effects without needing to pay extra.

3) There is a nice variety of transitions, themes, titles, DVD menus, and more. Another reviewer suggested that the themes seemed to be kid-oriented. There are some kid-based themes, but there are plenty of others to choose from.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhere Between Flip and Apple Editors October 2, 2010
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC/Mac
I've used Adobe Photoshop (not Elements) for many years but use Final Cut Express for video editing. I downloaded Premiere Elements 9 for Mac to see if it would be a cheaper alternative to FCE with Adobe's quality. My first impression is that it's very much like the newer Microsoft products. When you open the program it has to "phone home" to Adobe. It wants you to log in to their video sharing site, etc. It (like Apple's cheaper software) wants to take over the management of every still and video on your machine. Don't software developers realize that some people have more than one program for the same purpose?
As far as features, it seems ideal for capturing children's activities. It has lots of canned intros and styles that are children-based. It has a very few features that FCE probably doesn't have but it doesn't seem to support any after-market add ons. One is limited to what's in the box. If you're a busy mom who wants to easily make a cute (too-cute?) video of Charley's 5th birthday party, this is probably an ideal $100 editor, but you can do no more than the features built into the program.
It's not bad at all, just too limiting for me. I was hoping for something closer to Premiere (as FCE is to FCP). I had no stability issues on my Mac and got a clean uninstall from the Adobe software so I can recommend that you download the demo (which can be licensed to the full editor) and see if it's a better fit for you than it is for me.

Dave B saysNovember 11, 2010
Premiere Elements is Adobe's consumer editing product whereas Premiere Pro is our professional editing application. Premiere Elements has many features not available in iMovie and the Flip software, such as up to 99 tracks of video/audio, full key-framing of audio, motion, and effect parameters, hundreds of transitions and effects, and the ability to create many advanced effects such as picture in picture and green screening.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works for me October 24, 2010
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
While I haven't put this software through all its paces yet, so far at least I have no complaints with it. Basically, it installs fine, at least on Windows 7, and seems to work as advertised. As video editing software goes, it probably has flaws, but I suspect that Cecil B. DeMille would have killed to get his hands on it.

The other critiques I've read here, basically vomiting all over the software, seem to me to be over the top. One guy's complaining that "after spending all that money" ($59 after rebate) version 9 doesn't quite measure up to his version (Version 4!!) because Version 9 doesn't do something he wants on his flip camera. On the other extreme another guy's complaining that this Express version doesn't hold up well against the full version of Premiere - which costs a $1000 or so. Duh!

I'm definitely not a video connoisseur - the only other video editing software I've used is Vegas Movie Studio 9 - Premium Pro, and a trial version of Adobe Premier Elements 8. I plan to use videos in my eBook publishing business and on my web sites, and I just want bread & butter editing software that's cheap and gets the job done. As far as I can tell, so far, this package fits that bill pretty well.
