Review by William C. Dreisbach for Adobe Photoshop Premiere Elements 8 Rating: OK, I ddlewoaond the trial version of premiere 8 to get the new features. The thing was totally useless, hanging or crashing repeatedly. Old Premiere 7 projects or new from scratch same problem. After sending back 5 or 6 reports, I started questioning why they released this, the quality is so poor. The reason I moved to Adobe (by the way, no major problems with Premiere 7) was the terrible track record with Pinnacle. I produce short videos 3 minutes typically with 3 or 4 video tracks, and would expect an entry level program to do this. I will take the advice of the other reviewer and wait for version 9 or 10. I'd strongly recommend you download this trial before purchasing this product. Good luck!
