The most horrific piece of software ever written....,
This review is from: Adobe Premiere Elements 8 [OLD VERSION] (DVD-ROM)
This is without a doubt the worst software I have ever attempted to use.
I have a pretty hot system, probably in the top 10%. Fast quad processors, and high end graphics cards. Elements 8 was terribly sluggish and unresponsive. The interface was not especially intuitive, and all of the most essential editing functions simply don't exist. What should take minutes takes hours.
This software is essentially a toy for kids that want to play around with effects. The ability to do any serious editing is absent... No A&B roll, and I was unable to discover how to do well controlled audio editing. I could not unistall this package fast enough.
