Adobe Elements overview

  • 1Description

Adobe Premiere Elements 2018 is a video editing software that provides easy-to-use and automated tools for organizing and editing your videos. It's designed for users who want to make creative, polished movies without spending too much time on the technical process. The application supports up to Ultra HD 4K resolution editing and export, and offers a simple, drag-and-drop interface with many functions requiring no more than a drag or a click or two.

Premiere Elements 2018 lets you add graphics, animated titles, effects that move with the subject, transitions, motion menus, cartoon looks, dozens of musical scores, hundreds of sound effects, and more. You can also select from instant themed templates, choose to use touch-enabled quick edits, and use guided edits that provide step-by-step guidance within 18 different features, such as the new Freeze Frames with Motion Titles and Bounce-Back Effects. You can also make corrections to your footage. For example, you can auto-fix shaky footage, remove haze to make scenes clearer, and fix audio problems. When you're done, you can share your movies on Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo directly from the software, as well as burn them to DVDs (DVD burner required).

Premiere Elements 2018 provides a visual view of all your videos automatically sorted by date, and allows you to tag and find videos by people, places, and events, allowing for efficient organization of your videos. Moreover, Premiere Elements 2018 shares the same Organizer library with Photoshop Elements 2018 photo editing software, sold separately, so if you choose to add Photoshop Elements to your toolset, you'll get easy access to all your videos and photos in one place, and will be able to mix them together in several key features, such as the Slideshow feature that with one click creates stylish, themed slideshows containing both videos and photos.

The application is delivered to you on a DVD. It can be installed on up to two computers and used on one at a time, and you can easily move it from computer to computer.

New Features
Hassle-Free Organization (Enhanced)
Go from hundreds of mystery folders scattered across your computer to a visual view of your videos automatically sorted by date. Easily tag and find videos by people, places, and events.

Candid Moments
Wish you'd been able to capture the moment with photos? Now you can automatically extract great photos from your raw video footage.

Smart Trim
Automatically trim the bad and keep the good. Smart Trim finds and brings together the best scenes based on the style of your video.

Reimagined Slideshows
With one click, your best video clips are automatically selected and brought together to create a stylish, animated slideshow with a theme, and you can easily customize the slideshow with different clips. If you also have Photoshop Elements 2018, sold separately, you can combine photos and videos together in the same slideshow.

Guided Edit: Freeze Frames with Motion Titles
Four new Guided Edits have been added, bringing the total to 18. Guided Edits provide step-by-step editing help. The new Freeze Frames with Motion Titles Guided Edit walks you through the steps to create a freeze frame of the action and then add an eye-catching motion title.

Guided Edit: Bounce-Back Effects
Get step-by-step help making a segment of your video run forward and backward repetitively. Export your bounce-back effect as an animated GIF (Windows version only) or short video clip.

    Adobe Elements reviews

    Premiere Elements 2018 (Mac & Windows, Disc) is rated 1.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed! I tried multiple times to install this program but always got the window that said "there was another installation in progress.� Actually there isn't.� I spent over two days researching this problem with no success.� I know enough about computer programs to resolve almost all of my installation issues but not this one.� Sorry, but the program might be a good one but don't count on my recommendation because I could never install it.� I haven't returned it because I don't fully understand this problem but don't feel B&H should bear the cost of this issue.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Probably quite OK, but note new system requirements! I already had Premiere Elements 14, and bought this new version assuming that I could simply install it as a replacement. But my desktop PC runs Windows 7, 32-bit edition, and unfortunately I didn't read the fine print until I got the package home. Only then did I realize that this new version requires 64-bit Windows. I have 64-bit Windows 7 on a laptop computer, so this purchase won't go entirely to waste. However, people should be aware of this requirement, which Adobe didn't use to have. It actually makes some sense, since very large amounts of RAM are useful for efficient video editing, while 32-bit Windows is limited to less than 4 GB (= no longer considered very large). And more and more people use 64-bit Windows operating systems these days. But if you're considering this software, make sure whether you are one of those people or not; look at the Properties of your "Computer" icon if you have one on your desktop, or go to the Control Panel and choose System; either way you will see whether you have a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ma May not work in Window 7 y not Work in Window 7 I thought I’d upgrade my Premiere Elements 13 only to find out that Premiere Elements 2018 will not support the audio in the video from my several Sony cameras in Windows 7 as verified in the file formats specs (the vague fine print **) Also will not work with the prel project files or the video/audio files previously made with my version of Adobe Premiere Elements v13. I’d suggest testing with a Trial D/L before attempting a return.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zero product updates I have owned this product for six months. If you want to edit 4K drone footage do not use this product. The product can not edit 4K drone footage without stuttering or crashing even on a brand new high end laptop that more than meets the top requirements of the software. Zero updates to support this product.
