Premiere Elements 11.0 is aimed at the iMovie-level user who isn’t yet ready for Final Cut Pro X. While, superficially, iMovie ‘11 and Premiere Elements 11.0 look, feel and do much the same, Adobe’s refresh adds a number of small improvements.

Elements support a wide variety of formats, export options and easy-to-use effects. This helps you quickly edit nice-looking videos to play on a variety of devices.

We were able to directly import into the Organizer items from iPhoto and Aperture libraries, complete with established events and keywords. This is an optional extra step, since you can also directly pull content into Elements, but it offers some useful new capabilities, such as searching and sorting according to people and location.

Version 11.0 has a huge amount of overlap with iMovie. You’ll find the same image stabilisation, film-look effects, canned templates and so forth, but Adobe has taken these features and made them simpler to use and easier to fine-tune.

The program’s interface has seen an overhaul. Icons and text are bigger, and backgrounds are lighter. The primary tools aren’t hidden in menus, but accessible in a row of graphical pop-up buttons.

Premiere Elements in this version is to make everything clearer. The buttons are bigger and easier to differentiate, and information is better organised, leading to fewer clicks to find what you need.

Accommodating the app’s varied user base is a useful dual-mode interface. Quick mode offers fewer, simpler choices and controls, and a single video layer; Expert reveals more options, choices, power and complexity. This duality provides a nice bridge for novice users. Edits and effects span both modes.

We were able to edit our footage, insert Hollywood style effects with the program’s FilmLooks feature, add transitions, and quickly get the results we wanted. In Expert mode you can access advanced features such as Photoshop-style layer blend modes, and 99 video layers.

Beginner-friendly features include InstantMovie, offering assorted templates for weddings, sports, outdoor events and more. Combined with Smart Trim, you can plop some random shots on a timeline, and the program will build something watchable.

Elements provides a wealth of output choices, including for the web, DVD, Blu-ray, AVCHD, iPhone, iPad and online services.

This $141 consumer app isn’t a ‘life’ version of Premiere Pro. There’s no GPU acceleration, no batch rendering for output, and you can’t open an Elements project in Premiere Pro. Some formats require lengthy automated processing to import into the Organizer, too.
