Adobe Premiere Pro Vs Adobe Premiere Elements

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by HobbyDocumentary, Jan 19, 2006.

  1. 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,

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.
