Adobe Premiere Elements Editor's Review

From early days of video editing in computers, Adobe has been a name to reckon with. Its Premiere Pro software has catered to needs of high end studio and editing setups for more than a decade. Its less expensive sibling aka Premiere Elements has served the needs of consumer video-editing segment well. While the user base of Premiere Elements has consolidated since its inception, competition has also made good progress. Rivals like PowerDirector and Pinnacle Studio has found popularity with each version. Earlier versions of Premiere Elements incorporated powerful editing tools from its big sibling but fell short on other areas. With this release, Adobe has ironed out some such glitches.

Premiere Elements has steep hardware requirements as is the case with any leading video editor. You will need a beefy PC with multi core CPU and oodles of memory to run it smoothly. As far as Operating Systems are concerned, it runs on Windows XP and later versions. The application also gobbles a significant amount of hard disk space.

The interface of Premiere Elements looks somewhat altered compared to its previous version. When you launch it, the application gives you a choice to open the main Editing environment or Organizer. The main editing UI has changed significantly. In fact, it has fewer similarities with its big brother, Premiere Pro. Seasoned users will spot the difference immediately.

Gone are the Timeline and Sceneline views and now you are presented with Quick and Expert mode. The expert mode also sports an uncluttered interface. It is a much refreshing change compared to the old version’s tabbed panels. The Creative effects can be located at Action bar at bottom of the UI. In Quick mode, the clips get positioned sequentially. The video preview takes up large part of the screen. In Expert Mode, users get the usual multi-layer timeline. There is no dual preview workspace. In each mode, various tools and filters are placed around main window edges.

The Timeline editing has not changed much. There is nothing like ripple-editing mode but it works neatly. You may think the changes are mostly cosmetic but Premiere Elements has got some new functions. The Time Remapping tool, for example, generates slow and fast motions effects. The controls are quite simple to operate. It does not affect audio, resulting in loss of sync but you can remove the soundtrack altogether. The application’s Blend modes let colors in various clips get mixed in various ways. It is a rarity in consumer level video editors.

In this version, you get new categories in the Organizer. These groups are- Events, Places, Media and People. They are handy for grouping clips and images derived from different devices. The organizer also sports clearer, larger icons.

While Premiere Elements runs on both 32 and 64 bit Windows versions, it is better if your PC has a 64 bit OS installed. This is because the application’s Mercury Playback Engine, lifted from Premiere Pro, supports only 64 bit architecture. This version is more responsive than its predecessors. It can now playback multiple AVCHD streams without suffering from frame drops. However, preview performance can still be improved. There is no preset 1080p export template bundled. Seasoned users may grudge about lack of 3D content support.

Positive Points:
- Simplified sleek interface.
- Handy Time Remapping too
- Improved Organizer, Export options
- Mercury Playback Engine enhances playback.

Negative Points:
- No 3D content support.
- More suited for 64-bit machines.


In its latest incarnation, Premiere Elements still holds the lead over most rivals but it has some areas of weakness too. The revamped UI deserves praise as does the improved stability. The workflow has become easier while export options have been spruced up. The inclusion of Mercury Playback Engine is practical and same can be said about Time Remapping tool. One area where it lags behind rivals is lack of support for 3D and if you are not looking for that, this product is quite good.
