If you're like me, you haven't named your photos and you haven't done a great job of backing them up on DVD. This program does an excellent job of grabbing all of your photos and letting you sort through them and categorize them, regardless of what their file name is and where they are stored on your computer.
It also helps you find all of the duplicates that you have on your computer. It has a nifty little timeline that shows when all of your pictures have been taken as well, which I really liked.
All and all, you will not be disappointed with this program if you have over a gig of photos.
I could not import video from my 1 year old sony mini-dv cam. I had to use Nero to import the video. Once I got the video imported the Pre.Elememts 2 software would lock up my computer and eventually crash the program.
Of course I updated via webupdate and I turned off all other programs and did some research on the net. Seems to be a common problem people are having. I was also able to import video via Windows Movie Maker 2.
Eventually I was able to edit some video, but when it came to finalizing the project, no luck! Things were off. I give up for now. Going back to my Powerbook for editing.
B.T.W. I submitted my rebate via certified mail and months after Adobe still hasn't "received" my submission even though I have a certified mail return card that it was delivered months ago. So if the post-rebate price is the decision maker on this, be aware.
There are a few key defects that that I find very aggravating but not disabling. The program is not able to make a DVD from a previously rendered file. In order for Premiere to make a DVD it must re-render the file which typically takes several hours. This is a big inconvienience when all that is needed is another copy of a previously rendered project. It is possible to make a folder of files that can be used by other applications (e.g. Roxio Easy Media Creator) to burn additional DVD's, but that requires you to have and use the other application. Another defect is the very limited DVD authoring capability. The structure of the available menus is such that it is not practicle to have more than one distinct movie on a DVD since the scene selection portion of the main menu merges all the scenes from all of the movies. The available title and menu templates are also limited and it is not easy to make your own since the menu and titling editors are very limited. Photoshop Elements is required to have any significant editing capability. These errors are not encountered when making a single DVD with a simple menus and scenes, which is probably a large fraction of the use.
I find Premiere Elements to be a very good application that has room for significant improvement. Regardless of the needed improvements, I am migrating all my work from Pinnacle Studio to Premiere Elements.
