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.
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.
