Could anyone state the main differences between premiere pro and elements? I'm mainly just looking for a software better than Sony Vegas that's compatible on windows XP and doesn't cost too much.
I'd be using it to edit action videos so transitions and the ability to easily change the colouring would be good. Other things would be unlimited amount of tracks or a high amount of tracks (4 or more video and 3 or more audio), being able to render/save as an mp4, mov, and avi, some simple special effects like cloning and ideally the ability to apply an effects to a certain area. I've figured out how to do it on Sony Vegas even though it says you can't according to the help section. You just cut the section out as a separate layer, put it in a different track and apply the effect to it there, so if it says it can't do that but you're able to do it manually that's fine. So that's what I'd be wanting to do. Can you do that on elements or would I need pro?
Thanks, and please reply as soon as possible.
