Is it focused on quick trims, or should it offer more sophisticated timelines and layered effects? Adobe does all of the above with its latest release of Premiere Elements 9, along with the companion Photoshop Elements 9. But for Adobe, video and photo editing is not for novice consumers. But more and more, the focus of the Elements product line is on the separate Elements Organizer tool that is included with both products, to help you catalog and tag and organize your photos and videos.
The Elements Organizer is a handy stand-alone tool in its own right for getting started with editing — you can use it directly to apply simple edits, create slideshows, templated movies and DVDs, and then share online and to mobile devices. The new Elements 9 further emphasizes this focus, as all three components are now equally available on Macintosh as well as on Windows.
Headroom Adobe clearly believes that consumers need the headroom to step up to more sophisticated projects. Premiere Elements for video editing and Photoshop Elements for photo editing are not tools for casual consumers. Yes, they have accessible tab-based interfaces e. It also adds additional sophisticated effects, including an animated outlined cartoon look and audio cleaning for background noise, volume and clarity. The Elements Organizer also adds other new sharing options including Online Albums with animated templates based on Flash and uploading directly to Facebook.
Similarly, Photoshop Elements 9 adds high-end technology including the Spot Healing Brush to repair photos, Layer Masks, PhotoMerge Style Match to adjust photos according to the characteristics of another, and enhanced Photomerge Panorama that fills in the edges of panoramas using the amazing content-aware fill from Photoshop CS5. Like other media browsers, the Elements Organizer is designed to help you browse and view your photos and videos, zooming in and out on thumbnails, and searching by name.
The key technology behind the scenes in Elements is the Auto-Analyzer. As you import media files — photos and videos — the Auto-Analyzer processes them in order to set over 25 Smart Tags with information about them — for quality e. Similarly, InstantMovie can take advantage of the Smart Tags to automatically pick the best sections of footage in order to generate a polished movie based on your selected template. For example, for an archive of 5, to 10, photos, or more, plus videos, the Elements Organizer will need to spend lots of time chewing through them to generate thumbnails especially for the videos , and then an hour or more running the Auto-Analyzer to process them all.
Elements does run its processing in the background, and you can set the Auto-Analyzer to only run while your system is idle, and to run on startup to continue processing even while the Elements application is not running. On my test system the background Auto-Analyzer seemed to get stuck on certain PSD and JPG files, but I was able to work around this by stopping and restarting the process, and running it manually on specific folders.
In particular, Premiere Elements provides tremendous assistance in automatically analyzing your footage to find good and bad clips, and then takes advantage of this information to provide automated editing, clean-up, and mixing. However, this does require significant processing, especially when you first import a large catalog, so you need to be patient and allow it work in the background.
Premiere Elements then provides the best of both — seriously sophisticated editing capabilities, with automated assists to do much of the heavy lifting. In particular, you can use Elements to do the heavy work of the first-pass analysis and editing of your footage, and then enjoy the fun part of tweaking and customizing the results.

Capturing and Importing Video DV Device control is disabled and capture does not proceed normally if sound card is not present, or is offline. If capture is interrupted by a system event such as switching users, locking the system, or the screensaver, the duration of the captured file is much shorter than expected.
We recommend that you disable the screensaver before starting capture, and avoid any action that can interfere with the capture. For live capture from DV camcorders, you must first disable scene detect. When capturing form HDV camcorders, you sometimes see interlace lines in the preview window, The interlace lines do not appear in the captured video Divx files are sometimes, not imported, and sometimes, only audio or video part of the file is imported.
After completing time-lapse capture, it can take some time for the Organizer to update and display the thumbnails for the captured files. Still images captured using Stop Motion are not added to the organizer. Ensure that you have installed the drivers shipped with the device before you import media from them. Stop Motion capture is not supported for HDV camcorders. Organizer When reconnecting missing media, each grouped scene must be reconnected individually.

Exporting Movies Exporting movies to the root directory of any drive For example, D: When exporting movies exceeding one hour to MPEG2 format, the render dialog sometimes continues to be displayed for a period of time even after the render progress bar shows completed.
