I've tried a good number of different video editors for HD video editing and they all lack certain features here and there that I find necessary for myself. I don't want anything out of this world, just a good, solid performance combined, ease of use, easy video clip import, good image quality from rendering and - that's it. Nothing special. No fireworks, do dancing girls... Now, out of all the programs Premier Elements seemed to be very good, BUT it lacked the stability. Big time... Once I was working with that, the program just kept on crashing. Even if it would crash only once every 30 minutes, I could have taken that, but no... Had to be every second minute...
But, that was still with Windows Vista, and I blame Vista for much of the problems. I've upgraded - with blood, toil, sweat and tears, to Windows 7, which already has proven to be much, much more stable than Vista. So, the question is that do I have a chance to have a working solution with Premier Elements and Windows 7, running with multicore processor and 8 Gb of memory and soon with dedicated HD's for operating system and program files, video files and intermediate working storage? Will my dream ever come true?
Welcome to the forum.
It is possible, as many here report great success running PrE 8 on many different systems. Probably the biggest consideration is the optimization of one's hardware and their OS. This ARTICLE will offer a few tips on the software end of things, and for Win7, be sure to look down the thread and see Black Viper's optimization page.
