Adobe Premiere Elements 2021 is a consumer-level video editing software with large collections of basic and elaborate features. Premiere Elements allows you to edit manually or choose from different auto options. On the home screen, you can toggle between tabs to choose the option that works for you, whether the manual option or one of the auto options. However, you don't need to remain in just one workspace. Your project is available to you in any of the workspaces, and you can seamlessly toggle between the different spaces and continue working on the same project. What's more, even in the manual workspace, you have the choice of using certain auto options to complete different aspects of a feature.
To make the auto features flow smoothly and intelligently, Premiere Elements uses Adobe Sensei AI and machine learning technology to highly improve the design and delivery of auto features, such as automatically extracting photos from video footage or finding the right video clips from your video library by facial recognition. Adobe Sensei AI is a big part of Adobe Elements and even extends to advanced editing options such as selecting and editing specific areas of your video.
A key aspect of Premiere Elements 2021 is Guided Edits. There are 25 Guided Edits that lead you step-by-step through applying basic adjustments as well as elaborate features to achieve fun animations, transitions, and artistic effects. As you use these Guide Edits, you also learn the steps that you're guided through, and you can apply them manually the next time around. Guided Edits include the new double exposure edit where you can play a video within a photo by fusing the two together. Guided Edits also help you create dynamic timelapse videos, create freeze frames and add motion titles to them, make a segment of your video run forward and backward repetitively and then export the "bounce-back" effect as an animated GIF, and much more.
Other auto features include one-click editing tools, photo/video slideshow creation, Instant Movie creation with selected clips, themes, music, titles, and effects, and many more.
Among the new features in Premiere Elements 2021 are 21 new music scores, bringing the audio collection to a total of 73 music scores and 268 sound effects. Premiere Elements 2021 is a nonlinear video editing software with a timeline and large sets of effects, transitions, titles, and other standard NLE features.
