Not sure why someone would think this is the manual. It is not the manual, it is a separate book with a DVD full of projects to work on and step by step exercises on things like Editing and Transistions, special effects and titles and how to make a DVD.I found this book to be a great introduction to working with video on my computer- I chose Premiere Elements because it let me burn a DVD from the program. The chapter in the book is much better than anything in the manual as it tells you how to set up chapters and make a menu.For someone who didin't know anything about video this book introduced me to the subject in a way that was easy to follow.
If you have used an "Adobe Classroom in a Book" before, you know what this one is like. If you are a beginner in video or Premiere Elements, this might be a good "second book purchase". After you finish the lessons you can skim through the users manual and get what few details are left out here. The only criticism that I have about this book is that a proofreader did obviously not check it.
I tend to get a good amount out of Adobe's Classroom In A Book series, so I figured I'd grab the one for Elements. What I didn't realize was that this wasn't for Premiere Elements 4. Sure, I saw there was a Classroom In A Book title that had Premiere Elements 4 and Photoshop Elements 6, but I don't use Photoshop Elements, so I didn't see any point in paying extra for that. Besides, *that* book says that it takes the place of the titles for the individual programs and cuts down the cost. I figured it still meant I'd be paying more money, since I'd be getting something I didn't need.The joke's on me. I suppose it's my own fault: I should've looked at the publication date and realized it was a little old for the version I was using. But since I've never used Premiere Elements before, I really don't know how often new versions come out.Basically, I'm using a book that does not say *what* version it's for...And there are many things that have nothing to do with what I'm working on. I mean, it references tools that either don't exist or are hidden somehow.Yes, I'm pretty disappointed. But, like I said, I obviously didn't dig deeply enough. So that means I'm out the 22 bucks for a useless book. And now I'm going to have to go buy something - the book w/Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements - that's only half-useful to me. (And, please, don't say, "Photoshop Elements is great." I use the full Photoshop as part of my job. I don't need the baby brother. And I certainly don't need a book to teach me how to play with the baby brother. On the other hand, I need *exactly* that for Premiere Elements. It just kills me that I have to pay for something else that I don't need or want.
WARNING! should put this label on all of its out of date manuals. This book has a 2005 copyright and is written for a version of Adobe Premiere elements that has been revised at least 4 times since publication. It is useless for the current Premiere Elements 7.0. I was fooled -- don't you be too.
I thought this book would be different from the manual that came with the software, but it was exactly the same. A disappointment.
