Adobe Premiere Elements 10 Movie Editing Software
|February 10, 2012||Posted by admin under Software|
Premiere Elements is in a class of tools known as non-linear editors. Non-linear editing is a child of the digital era, and allows random access to any point in the video stream. Contrast that with a linear editing system where you have to wind and rewind a film or tape spool to get to a specific spot. PE has two main editing views: Sceneline and Timeline. Sceneline portrays your film as a series of thumbnails, with each thumbnail representing a video clip or still image. It is a quick way to string a few clips together into a short movie. Timeline shows each video clip as a bar stretched out over a horizontal axis that represents time – the longer the bar, the longer the video clip.

Timeline is the more traditional view. It allows you to see all the resources that make up your video and the relative lengths of each component.
Timeline is divided into video and audio. In the video portion, you can place either video clips or still images, and you can adjust the length of time that a still image will appear. When you drag a video clip onto the Timeline, the file is automatically split so the motion picture part goes into the video tracks and the sound goes into the audio track. You can also put sound effects, background music or a narration track into the audio section.
Premiere Elements is pretty smart about video formats used by still cameras. I loaded a variety of video clips in MOV, AVI and AVCHD formats taken with several different still cameras and Premiere Elements accepted them all without a hitch. Likewise, you can export finished movies to a variety of formats, from Blu-ray discs to small flicks suitable for a cellphone screen.
Premiere Elements is quite complete in its features. You can trim video, add transition effects between scenes, and add titles or other text. There’s a virtual mixing board where you can adjust the levels for the various audio files. If you want to package your movie with a specific look, there are theme templates included, as well as templates for creating DVD disc menus with scenes and chapters. One set of templates is for slideshows – yes, you can use Premiere Elements to make a movie entirely of still images, complete with tides, transition effects and a music soundtrack.
The Premiere Elements 10 workspace is organized into three main areas. The Monitor panel is the big window on the left, where you preview clips and your movie as you build the sequences, transitions, special effects, etc. To the right of that is the Tasks panel, which uses tabbed sub-panels that carry the four main processes: organize video, sound and other assets; edit the video including adding transitions and titles or assigning a theme; create DVD title and chapter; and output to movie formats from Blu-ray to smartphone quality. Along the bottom is the My Project panel, which shows the assembled video, stills and audio either as Timeline or as Sceneline.
