I need to upgrade from Premiere 6.01, which doesn't support HD, to a editing solution that does (my DV camcorder broke so I am replacing with a HDV one). If anyone here was a former user of Premiere 6.01 (and probably 6.5), please enlighten me which premiere product (premiere pro 2 or premiere elements 3) would be an easier transition.
I downloaded the free trial of elements 3. Now I haven't bothered to use a tutorial yet, but I had a hard time finding some of the tools/toolbars that I have grown accumstomed too in version 6. I couldn't even figure out how to drag all video clips to the right, it would only select all video clips in the timeline. In version 6, all the most used editing and selection tools were right beside the timeline.
Is pro anybetter/more similar to the old premiere setup? Or is it completely reworked too.
