Simply put - stay away from Adobe Premiere Elements 12. I have been using Premiere Elements 11 for about a year and have pushed a lot of project through it. I was overall content with it and hoped that version 12 would streamline a few things and perhaps improve the performance, etc. Adding a couple new features would also be great.

None of the above, and less! I did not encounter the installation problems that some other have had with the software, but I find version 12 to open and run significantly slower than version 11. In addition, some features have been broken and some basic functions have new bugs. Here is the example that infuriates me every time: Add a new text label to your timeline, and select the style and font, size, etc. Okay, now move to another point in your timeline and add a new text label. Try to use the same style, font, and size that you just used for the previous label... go ahead, try. No really... give it a shot. It won't work. You have ONE choice, and that is the default style and font. The only workaround that I have discovered is to close the application completely and then re-open it and launch the project. But that only works ONCE. If you want to add a new text label again..... same deal. There is absolutely no excuse for such poor testing and QA from a software company.

I am evaluating other brands of software for my video editing. It's a shame, because I like PE 11 for the most part - but I just wasted money on v12 that would have been much better put towards another brand of video editor.

I have waited for long time for this version hoping that it would be improved from the version I already have which is APE 9.0. But to my astonishment, same old problems still there and the worst of all is its inability to export movies in HD 1080 p, 50 or 60 fps format to match the quality of the new camcorders clips. Editing features and effects are not so bad, but when you export your final movies in HD format you get the worst quality ever. If you want hight quality HD movies forget about Elemnts 12, but if you are still working with DVD SD quality, this Elements is not so bad.

This is the video editing software I always want to love--but somehow, it's like dating a charming person with a pretty face and a smokin' hot bod, but finding out you just can't stand some of their quirks. I have used a number of competitors and while I love the interface of Adobe Premiere Elements the BEST, the performance is not always up to par. And if your computer is a bit long in the tooth (mine is 5 yrs old) and if its video card and memory and other specs are not up to current standards, performance will suffer even more--that is, you'll crash frequently as you stress your system. Video editing is resource hungry.

Good Stuff:

There is a new Guided mode. This is what I loved about Pinnacle, a competing video editor--until it was acquired by Avid and changed radically. In Premiere, The Guided Mode is great for anyone who is new to video editing, or just doesn't have a lot of time to get a project up and running.

Guided Mode will take you through trimming your clip, adding music and voice over, adding transitions between scenes. Like Photoshop Elements for still photographs, the Guided Mode is very helpful to learn and grow with the software, or just to save time.

Quick Mode: has film effects and instant-movie.

Works with the Organizer we know and love, to add media. As with Photoshop Elements, you really now start with the Organizer, then after you gather your media, you start your video project.

Advanced features: Chroma Keying, videomerge (with making background transparent to merge green screen clips), 2D and 3D transitions (I haven't tried 3D) opacity adjustment, keyframe timed events, picture-in-picture. You can get some advanced effects if you are skilled at video editing.

I upgraded from Premiere Elements 11 to 12. It was cheaper to buy outright then to pay the upgrade on Adobe.com. As a benefit, Amazon lets you download right away and delivers your keys electronically. Nice experience Amazon. The software installed quickly on my Windows 7 64 bit system. I run 8GB of ram, an AMD 8 core processor, and an ATI video card with 3 monitors. I have a 120GB SSD for a system drive and a 60GB scratch drive for editing video and images. I then move the content off the system onto a QNAP NAS with mirrored disks for long term storage. I find that I don't access projects often after I'm done editing them.

Update 9 Jan *** Removed two stars.
Adobe clearly has not learned how to release clean software. Narration crashes often. I've edited several videos through this package and found it to be a step up from 11. It is really frustrating that Adobe does not fully test their software prior to release.

CONS:
- Software was written for a single monitor system. It regularly pops windows up on other monitors and always opens on monitor zero. Very irritating.
- Narration works, but the "mute audio" when recording feature doesn't. This requires manually muting or you will get feedback and echo.
- It crashes regularly when using narration. It's always when you hit stop.
- Adobe thinks you can't multi-task, so if you click anything else while previewing video it pauses. Very irritating.
- The online upload feature is nice if you create short videos. It does not work for YouTube partners who are allowed to upload longer videos.
- Adobe insists on storing files in strange places and does not remember where you regularly open/close videos. Annoying, but this is the home version of the software.
