Top customer reviews
As hoped, AVCHD support was included in Elements 7 however it is lacking in luster. This not to do with Adobe's method of managing the issues as much as the need for more powerful editing hardware.
Some food for thought.
1. I noticed that Audio dropped on almost every file loaded after a few seconds of playback in the time line.
2. Time line scrubbing was not smooth and exact marking at best was a task.
3. Rendering of standard definition to DVD show considerable artifacts that other products seem to manage better.
My editing system is based on and Foxconn x38a motherboard, Intel Quadcore Q9450, 4gig of 800Mhz ram, Asus 3870 graphics card, one 250 gig OS drive, one 250 data drive, Two Seagate 250 gig hard drives in raid 0 for capture/rendering, and Windows XP Pro. Not the fastest system but not shabby.
Some solutions I found to remedy problems with AVCHD in Elements 7.
Make sure you have an AC3 filter. (Took care of my audio issue.)
I purchased Cineform AspectHD intra-codec for use with Premiere which also works with Elements. This is not cheap software but is very effective at managing AVCHD.
Move to Windows XP/64 or Vista/64
Adobe CS4 is now out and I hope to review AVCHD management in this editor as the professional version usually has advantages over its' junior. I hope Adobe works on the compression management and releases a update to help people with average systems.
Overall rating on Elements 7 is good in my book but not the stellar product I would expect from Adobe.
Program is fairly easy to use once you learn the options. The only thing I found a bit bothersome was the soundtrack option as the music that comes with program while ok can get repetitive after a time on several videos. There is a web site for downloading other music but there is a cost to it. I have elected to use some music I already had in places which the program will allow you to import to video in soundtrack and also use some of the program supplied music to break up music background. Again this is the option of user.
While it has instant movie feature I found I did not like the way it automatically worked to set things up. Not that it did not do a fair job. I just preferred to put it together the way I wanted instead of relying on program. For some this may be fine. That is a nice option for someone wanting to just get a quick video.
The burn to DVD disc feature works fine and has created DVD's with no problem on playback. It can take a bit of time to convert files to DVD after you have finished your video but does not appear to be excessive based on other programs I have used.
I would recommend this to any one especially with the $20 rebate which actually brought cost of program down to about $60.
I purchased this software because I created a slideshow in PhotoShop Elements for my mother's 90th birthday party but could not burn it onto a DVD; one could do that (theoretically) only using Premiere Elements, and that's why I went ahead and purchased it.
After several hours spent attempting to a burn a DVD of the slideshow and having all attempts thwarted ~ low memory messages; "Error compiling movie, out of memory"; "Adobe PRE7 encountered a problem and needs to close" (that happened 49 seconds before the end of the burn); and the very frequent "TRANSCODING ERROR"!!!!!
Just what the heck is a "transcoding error" any way? I'm not alone in encountering these problems, as evidenced by going through various message boards. Adobe creators of this program need to hang their heads in shame.
I uninstalled the program and re-installed the program. I cleaned up my brand new computer, turned off the screen saver, etc. I even tried creating the entire slideshow using Premiere Elements. What I ended up doing is going back to PhotoShop Elements 7 and creating a video CD of the slideshow, and, luckily, it plays in all of my DVD players. I wasted all that time and money attempting to use PRE7.
