Completely overwhelmed by the complexity of Adobe's new product, Premier Elements 9, I turned to the forums for some help and guidance. The information there was great, but of more significance to me was the suggestion that I get this book thru .COM that would help me understand PE9 and would be my constant companion for awhile as I was learning to work with the program. Delivery was prompt, the whole online transaction was painless, and the book, so far, is living up to my hoped-for expectations. For anyone experiencing difficulty in transitioning to PE9 this is the perfect book. You will be pleased with the thorough explanations, discussions, and instructions you will find between the covers, all written in easily understandable layman's language. For me this book is turning video editing into a big bunch of fun, and I now appreciate all the professional-type functions of Premier Elements 9. Lots of flexibility, great results...!!!
You aren't going to just start using Elements without some type of manual. I hesitated to get this one in the bookstore because it was so costly, but ended up going back for it because it's just so easy to use. There are step by step instructions, screen shots and a DVD that make learning really foolproof. If you are visual or a hands on learner, this is the book for you. I had my first video done to my satisfaction in one day. The next one will be a lot faster and smoother. I have a great appreciation for this software after using this book.
I'm about halfway through the book. It's well written and fairly easy to follow. There are a few glitches however. I suspect Adobe never had someone unfamiliar with PRE 9 go through the book. The steps don't always work. Also, the pictures of buttons to push are small and dark. It's hard to tell what they look like. Also, a Glossary would be a nice addition.
For a classroom simulation, this book is a tad complex. It's do-able, of course, but really needs the sort of review a teacher would provide, like repeating steps. I think it would mean more to me and be far more valuable if each chapter was accompanied by a simple list of steps for each item being taught. There are plenty of pictures, but many don't seem to be for the thing being referenced in the text, so there is a bit of confusion. Maybe the pictures are just too small and I can't see what the text is referring to. If you are looking for a book, try a different one.
I don't have any thing more than general computer skills and practice on Photoshop Elements for pictures so this book has helped me tremendously speed up my dvd making progress!I have not done the course work that can be done to learn everything and practice all the courses but I intend to do so after I get a new computer (mine is 5 years old and slow). My computer can not handle all the program information and frequently shuts down because of the lack of memory.If you use this program I highly recommend that you make sure your computer will be able to handle this program as it does work horrible on my computer and I can basically only do very short videos without much of the creativity this program offers.I bought it because I wanted to be able to put some of my camera videos onto an actual dvd to show at some parties. I have not had any trouble playing the short videos on my dvd's in any dvd player so far.
It is OK, it spends a lot of time covering very simple to figure out features and not enough time showing you some of the more advanced features. I had never used adobe premiere elements before and within a couple hours playing with the program I had learned most of the things, about 2/3 of the of the book, so by the time I had received the book most of it was useless to me. Sure there is some good info in it, but I would recommend looking at some 3rd party books that don't spend so much time with the basics.
This book fails to coversmall details like changing the default font size or color. It is just a rehash of the Premiere 9 Help section, which isn't very helpful.My advice: keep shopping, there has to be a better solution to making a DVD than this book and Premiere 9. I have made about 75 DVDs using Videowave 7, but it is not compatable with Windows 7. Still shopping
Great information with lessons. This should have been included with the software. I would recommend to anyone purchasing Adobe Premier Elements 9
