Download the trial and burn it to disc.
Do you already have a valid serial number?
Could you give more details of your situation? Do you currently have a purchased serial number and Premiere Elements 12?
What computer operating system is Premiere Elements 12 on or will it be going on?
My experience was that Adobe is not selling the boxed packaging (installation discs), only the download. And, as Peru Bob has indicated, you can burn those installation files to a disc for storage. But, they are no good to you without a purchased serial number.
It would appear that Adobe has not yet discontinued selling Premiere Elements in the boxed packaging. It just is not selling it direct. For the boxed packaging, you need to go to an authorized reseller of the product.
The above have been my observations.
More details please so that you can give you a more specific answer.
Thank you for the information. I’ve no bought the system. I’m just exploring options at this point. Windows 8 is my OS. I want to see what advantages Elements has.
Thank you again.
Thanks for the follow up.
The free 30 day tryout of Premiere Elements 12 is available only as the download.
At least two scenarios if you decide to purchase
a. Purchase a serial number online from Adobe and put that purchased serial number into the tryout to make it your purchased product.
b. You can purchase the boxed packaging which will come with a serial number and installation discs. You could uninstall the tryout, install the purchased boxed packaging product using the installation disc, and then insert the purchased serial number from the box into the software.
You could buy the boxed packaging which will come with a serial number (and those installation discs), leave the tryout installed, and just insert your purchased serial number into the tryout already installed on your computer.
For your consideration.
I really appreciate all the help. I have on last question. Is it true that Elements 12 does not allow one to add music to a video that is not part of the program?
Not true. You can add any music you want as long as it is a supported format (.wav, mp3, etc).
Then, thanks to you, I’m almost ready to make a decision.
Yes, you can import your own music as Peru Bob has posted.
But frequently, if the music is from iTunes, there may be problems where you need to convert your music to wav (or lesser preferred by some) to .mp3.
Conversion to .wav or .mp3 can be done in iTunes.
If current version of iTunes
Edit Menu/Preferences/General - Import Settings Tab/Import Setting dialog and set Import Using = WAV Encoder.
Then right click song, select Create WAV Version.
I can't find a forum for my question on APE 12
I took a video with a green screen and in APE 12 I use the Green Key, but it only changes the green screen to a blue color and the adjustments don't help at all, It was so easy in APE 10 and 11, why can't I get the same result in 12?
I use win 8 - 64k and tryed on 2 computers with the same result
Is this the same question, as you posted in http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1408229?tstart=0 ? If so, please do not double-post, as it will only lead to much confusion.
Good luck, and let's continue the discussion in your other post please.
That is not my posting.
