I've created a *user-patch* for Windows version of PRE10 (Adobe Premiere Elements 10). It adds the following new features, which were are available in a standard installation of PRE10:
(1) Editing-presets for 1920x1080p50 and 1920x1080p60 video projects
(For Panasonic, JVC, and Sony AVCHD2 camcorders)
(2) burn *native 24p* video onto Bluray-disc and AVCHD-disc
PRE10's default disc-burning presets only output interlaced-video (1920x1080i30), which is perfectly fine for source-footage that is also interlaced. But for progressive (24p) projects, the result is suboptimal.
Now, you can burn native 24p video onto Bluray-disc (or AVCHD disc.) No need to go through a 2-step process and a third-party authoring program.
(3) Editing-presets for HDV progressive: 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p30
(4) MPEG-4 file share preset for outputing *.MP4 files at 1920x1080p50, 1920x1080p60
Other general improvements include:
(5) Editing-preset for 5.1-audio AVCHD Lite 720p50 and 720p60
Editing-preset for 5.1-audio AVCHD 1440x1080p24 and 1920x1080p24
(6) DVD, AVCHD, and Bluray disc burning with higher-quality (448Kbps) stereo-audio
All of the default disc-burning profiles are now now available with Dolby 448Kbps stereo.
The user-patch comes in a *.zip file. So you'll need to be comfortable with "unzipping" files into the installation-directory of PRE10. And you will need Administrator privileges on your PC. Detailed instructions are in the readme file.

... did this one last year, but can't remember if I posted it.
About the Download-links
For those of you unfamiliar with google-docs, when you click on the link, you get a list of the package's contents.
Important: In the upper-left of the google-docs page, click on 'File', then 'Download original' ...Don't download each file 1 at a time!
(Sorry, I should have put this in the original post...)
Thanks for creating these modifications!
One remark though:
When creating a DVD menu, when an original HD setting is selected then the menu list contains a mix of menu's in HD resolution as well as in SD resolution.
When I use the HD settings from you, menu's in HD resolution do not appear anymore in the list. Only the SD resolution menu's show up.
Do you have any idea why this happens? Could it be another setting that needs modification before PRE10 recognises it?
Great stuff. Thank you.
For sharing to a file with Dolby, I selected the +MP4 - H264 1920x1080p 60 preset. In Advanced settings, on the Multiplexer tab, I set Multiplexer to "None, which made Dolby available on the Audio tab. That allows you to save to separate m4v and ac3 files, which can be muxed with tsMuxeR GUI. All 60 fps from the original were there. Yes!
