Premiere Elements 11 has a number of new features, but none of them are of real interest to me except for the possibility of improved slow motion control.
I would like to know the robustness of PE 11's slow motion. I have PE10 and, as doubtless other users are aware, slow motion achieved through dialing down the speed through time stretch is very limited. Currently, when I want to get something "really" slow (i.e. as good as you can get with PE 10) I have to export the clip, then import the result into the project, slow it down some more, export it again, import it again, etc. Not a great workflow and not necessarily great results either.
Does the PE 11 slow motion feature allow one to dramatically slow down a clip while maintaining some naturalness to the slowed movement? I wouldn't expect an effect along the lines of the Matrix but I would expect it to be avoiding the appearance of a herky jerky frame by frame rendition of a slowed down scene.
Can anyone with experience using it give an opinion of slow motion in PE11, particulary in comparison with PE 10? I'd appreciate it.
You can reduce playback to 1/8 speed and the frame blend feature will make it look smooth and natural.
Thank you Steve. Sounds promising and improved from previous versions of PE.
