I am an ELements user and I was made an offer to upgrade to Pro CS3 for $299. Will this upgrade buy me anything?
I have a Canon HV20 and the big pain is the 24p workflow. Does Pro CS3 offer any improvement over pulldown? I can see various 24p related options in Elments (grayed out and disabled of course) so it leads me to think that maybe working with this footage is easier.
Overall, CS3 is a much better application for editing HDV. However, it isn't the best. Editing HDV natively is painful and slow. So, if you are willing to get the added functionality with these hassles, then I'd say go for it.
