Adobe Premiere Elements 15 Review

adobe premiere elements editingAdobe Premiere Elements adds a few interesting features, but nothing of an oh-wow nature. Its most updated feature is being able to share content via YouTube,and fast upload to Facebook. Adobe has also improved the Premiere Elements speed with the latest version, but with annoying Welcome screen which will delays getting to the editor.

Main features of Adobe Premiere Elements

Spoken dialogue in videos can even be turned into timecode-accurate, text-based, searchable metadata.

Editing Tools

adobe premiere dvdPremiere Elements includes many Power Tools and fixes that help users to enhance their footage and produce stunning video effortlessly. Clip entry, trimming, and splitting are a snap in Premiere Elements, Also with Premiere Elements full set of editing tools lets you control everything from key-frame to audio. With Premiere Elements you can edit lighting, rotation, cropping, clipping. It also offers auto contrast, auto levels. A quibble is that it would be nice if you could double-click on the effect thumbnail to apply it, rather than having to click the Apply button. After applying, most effects offer further control from the Edit Effects button. In all, there are over 80 effects you can apply, in groups like distort, stylize, and transform.

Premiere Elements 15 has some additional editing capabilities to help with audio problems. Six new audio effects–Audio Polish, Auto Mute, Cleaner, Hum Remover, Noise Fader, and Noise Reducer–are mostly automated tools designed to solve common issues. As with any filter, the results they produce depend on the quality of the video.

Transition options are plentiful, and, as with effects, I like how you can choose a type from a dropdown like 3D motion, dissolve, iris, or page peel. And a search box lets you enter the name of the one you’re looking for.  doesn’t have the search, which makes it harder to find the transition you want.

Cone of the New features in effects for version 15 is the NewBlue Cartoon Plus, which attempts to give your video a cartoon drawing effect. Its results were pretty interesting, if not a total replacement for human cartoon animators or Pixar Studios. It did offer a wealth of adjustments like density, cleanup, width, mix, layers, and nine paint options.

Adobe Premiere Elements performed solidly throughout our testing, the rendering performance was excellent, and the quality of the generated video files was excellent
