* What exactly do you mean by "vocal enhancement"? The program comes with nearly two dozen audio effects.
* Premiere Elements has a unique interface, designed to be more user-friendly than Pro. Although it does follow the same basic principles all video editors do. And it shouldn't be much of a learning curve.
* Premiere Elements does allow you for rippling, snapping and slicing clips on your timeline -- although the tools are a little different than the ones in Pro.
If you want to see what Premiere Elements looks like and how it functions, you might want to check out my free 8 part Basic Training tutorial series at Premiere Elements support site Muvipix.com.
Thank you for your reply, and yes, I will check out your training!
By 'vocal enhancement', I'm sure I am NOT using the proper term. I seem to recall there is an audio effect that you plop down onto the audio portion of the timeline. You can select male or female voice. I'm male, so it seems to automatically deepen the voice a little bit.
Actually, I'm only 15 days into my trial of Premiere Pro, but it won't open anymore for me. I've researched the error code, and I will have to uninstall and reinstall it (too much of a hassle right now, which is why I'm going to try Premiere Elements instead!)
If I could open and run Premiere Pro, I would get the exact name of that vocal enhancement effect.
No vocal enhancer in Elements.
If you dont know what most features in Pro are/or what they do just stick to Elements when doing home videos.
Pro has a steep learning curve and aimed at the professional or advanced amateur video editor.
Once uninstalled, I don't think that you can reinstall a trial and use it as a trial.
Even before downloading a trial version of Premiere Elements, you may want to view the couple videos at the link below. They will give you a good feel for the user interface, which is much friendlierthan the pro version.
And, interestingly, a number of the tutorials Don linked to are mine also!
