The other day I read that Adobe Premiere elements is a more user
friendly software than 'Pro' with a better interface and all built over
the Pro version, minus some very advanced features seldom used.Any
comments?

Can't compare elements to "Pro" because I have never used the pro package.
Also, I am a pretty new to video. I can tell you this: Elements does all
that I think I'll ever want, as I have only scratched the surface of the
program.

I started with Pinnacle, and I loved the interface, but the program caused
me to pull out my hair by crashing all the time. I finally gave up and went
with Elements. From what I ahve seen on the boards, my experience with
Pinnacle is quite common. Adobe has a 30 day fully functional trial that
you should try. Do just do enough of the tutorial to get going and start
messing around.

Thanks,

Mac

I am still in the early days with Premiere Elements - never tried
Premiere Pro. Premiere Elements is quite nice.

1. Perhaps it is there, but I have not found it - I would like to have
macros to help with some of the repetitive tasks.

2. Undoing what you'd done before is a problem, unless it is done
immediately, or in the current session.

3. In my first effort (sortof a documentary) I put most things on the
timeline of track 1. Bad mistake. Keep the different elements on
different tracks and then you can make very good changes as you go along.

4. I don't find the interface very "intuitive", but as I am getting
more used to it (and using "help" a lot), I am getting to like the
programme more, rather than less.

5. I bought my version bundled with Photosoph Elements 4, and think
that the bundled price (especially with the deals around) is very good.

I don't have any experience with Premiere Elements (only Premiere
and Premiere Pro), but my understanding was that Elements was a
"stripped-down" (subset) version of Pro?

Adobe Premiere Elements is essentially Adobe Premiere 6.5 re-issued in a new
wrapper. After all, isn't that what everyone here has described - Premiere
Elements a stripped down version of Premiere Pro, i.e. Premiere 6.5.

No. Premiere Pro appears to be a significantly different
animal from the previous generations. It is rumored that
they got a major infusion of new blood in the development
team and the product is very significantly different. It seems
unlikely that they would release a "new" product (Elements)
based on an "old" code-base (the Premiere 5-6 generation).

Not even close. Have you ever actually seen any of these products?

Premiere Pro was a major re-write of 6.5, and 6.5 is not a "stripped down"
version of Pro. Elements is a simplified version of Pro and is most
definitely not 6.5.

Yes, I have and use both Elements and Pro 1.0, 1.5 and an advance copy of
2.0. I see little difference between Elements and 6.5.
