I was reading Steve's topic 'HOW CAN I TURN OFF BACKGROUND FEATURES IN PREMIERE ELEMENTS' and just wanted to see if anyone has any problems with the auto enhancer being turned off? I love my pre-render but my system I fear is too slow for it. LOol, but the auto enhancer seems to be something that I would like to hear expressed views about before I disable it... I would hate to loose quality at any rate... sooooo let me know your experiences please, and thank you.
The Auto Enhancer (which Adobe now calls Smart Fix) is something I turn off and never use.
But that's just me. I don't use anything automatic.
It seems to do a decent job correcting brightness and contrast and stabilizing the picture -- but that's all stuff I prefer to do on my own. The vast majority of my video looks pretty darn good coming off my camcorder, so I just don't see much sense in doing extra tweaking of the picture unless quality is a real issue.
I haven't seen much difference myself, being that I use a tripod and I am usually outside with great lighting... but when the off season comes around and I do more projects inside, it will be worth knowing which setting to use.... Steve you're a power user man! If I even tried to do all that myself the end result might not be pretty... LOol
