    Clone Tool?

      I need to clone out a dust spot from a video shot with a point'n'shoot camera. Can I do this in PE7?

          You can certainly do it with Photoshop Elements, if that's what you're asking.

          There's no equivalent to cloning in Premiere Elements.

            No equivalent is right. One tedious method would be to have the same video parallel on track 2 and then use one of the Garbage mattes -- under Keying effects -- on that video on track 2 to outline an area that you want as the clone. Then use the Motion effect, already in the properties panel, to position the whole frame so the "clone" covers the spot. You would have to keyframe the motion to follow the spot, unless there is no motion in the video, which would make this simple.

            There are of course different techniques to this, but somebody else will have to come up with them.
