For Premiere Elements 11 and 12, you cannot change its default project preset from NTSC AVCHD Full HD1080i30 or its PAL counterpart PAL AVCHD Full HD1080i25 to something else.
For each project, you can set the project preset manually if you do not want the program to take over setting the project preset based
on the properties of the first drag to the Timeline.
To set the project preset manually, open the project to the Expert workspace, go to File Menu/New/Project and Change Settings.
In the Change Settings area, change the project preset. Before you exit that area, be sure to have a check mark next to "Force Selected Project Setting on This Project" in the new project dialog.
Then you import your source media, using the appropriate Add Media choice.
If you want a version of Premiere Elements that uses the default project preset of NTSC DV Standard or its PAL counterpart PAL DV Standard, then you need to look to a version of Premiere Elements earlier than 11.
Please let me know if you have any further questions on this or need clarification.
Thanks for the info. I'm with a nonprofit: Archive Productions Inc. which video tapes events, interviews, and performances for archiving and to promote the arts. Part of our mission is to train film makers so we work with students from the San Francisco Bay Area. Our organization has about a dozen computers which run Premiere Elements 9, 11, CS6, Final Cut 10, etc. We purchased them through Tech Soup at a reduced rate. I'm really frustrated that Adobe has discontinued its line of software and moved to the cloud. Our organization isn't able to afford monthly charges for all of the softward and computers since most of the time only several are used simultaneously. There are some times when we have classes and need all the computers.
Do you know of any source to purchase software of Premiere elements 11?

Thank you for the reply.
Just in case notes....
We are not Adobe. Just user to user.
Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements as of version 12 (current version) are not part of the Cloud group of Adobe programs with subscriptions. If history repeats the annual ritual, there will be new version of Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements around the end of September 2014. Whether or not they will be marketed as purchase price at one time or go the subscription route of the Cloud products is not known along with the feature set of these programs. Only Adobe knows and that information is not released until the moment of release of the new products.
I suspect that an online place like Amazon may still have copies.
I post that for informational and non promotional purposes.
