No More Funtimes with Premiere Elements 9
I was going to talk a lot about using Premiere Elements, how useful it is, and compare it to that *other* Premiere. Up until a few hours ago, I would have recommended everybody who’s been having trouble with video to it.
Welllll… there are some issues with that.
This program was my savior after decades (read: weeks) of battling with the evil of the Premiere on the school’s computers. Not laggy! The ability to actually watch your videos and make precise cuts! It was a dream come true. Until I tried uploading my video to my website tonight and realized that the big ugly watermark did not go away after production.
Not so bad for my place video, as I have all the necessary things and can make just remake it in Camtasia, but a pain nonetheless, since there was no other way to make a halfway decent DIY video without. C’est la vie, I suppose.
SO, while this program is SO much easier to use than anything else I’ve dealt with so far, and I would love to recommend it, unless you’re okay with forking over an extra $100 or deal with an irritating watermark (seriously, it’s placed as inconveniently as possible. Adobe is staffed by the most evil of evilers)
But I haven’t given up. I’ve been looking for a way around the watermark… if I find anything worthwhile, I will share. And if I DO then expect a more detailed post.
