Thread: Premiere Elements or Pro?

  1. #1

    Default Premiere Elements or Pro?

    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.

    " If you are going to be using it again and again for more complex presentations then you should consider stepping up to Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 which allows greater control and customisation: from simple features like being able to lock in one of the audio or video tracks or creating custom workspaces to specialised work with masks and mattes. "

    However if you have looked at vegas and want something ' better ' you may be dissapointed.
    Prem / fcp / vegas / are all 'best'.

    Version 7 is much improved from version 3 as far as features and functions go. I haven't had any problems doing most of my work in Premiere Elements but did come across needs for more advanced timelines and DVD Authoring so I had to go to Pro.

    One of the primary differences between the two is that Premiere Pro has sequences or multiple timelines, makes many things much easier. They are much like sub projects. Premiere Elements has unlimited Tracks, we tested up to 104 audio and video tracks at Muvipix and it still ran fine, that was version 2.

    Many of the people I know that don't like Premiere Elements go to Sony Vegas, they are very similar in many ways. If you don't like Vegas you might not like Premiere Elements either. Definitely download the trial and give it a try, there are a bunch of free starter tutorials there *** muvipix.com Products ***
