    PR9 Disc Menus

    Steven-K Level 1

      I just upgraded from PE8 to PE9 and noticed that the Disc Menus are the same for both versions. Same content.

       

      Am I missing something? It seems to me that Adobe should be charging half the price for the same content.

          Historically, with the Functional Content, Adobe makes but a few changes, version to version. Usually, a couple of Menus will go away, and a few more are added. Sometimes, it's just a slight design element change.

           

          Now, PrE doesn't have quite the same upgrade paths, as say PrPro. My guess is that the assumption is made that most buyers will be new owners, rather than upgrading from a previous version, so the full set of Functional Content will be included, rather than just a sub-set of it.

           

          I do not have the ability to compare the Functional Content between PrE 8 & PrE 9, to check to see if there are any differences. If you have the exact same set in each version, and the file sizes and dates are the same, then it should be fair to say that they are the exact same.

           

          Good luck,

            The following is a copy/paste from my Premiere Elements 9 First Look thread at a Premiere Elements Forum that I frequent. The post gave the Premiere Elements 9 description of the available DVD Templates, but also included a comparison to Premiere Elements 8 DVD Template offerings. I hope that you will find it helpful.

              ATR,

               

              Great research, and thank you for posting the complete list.

               

              That should help the OP greatly. As I postulated, there are a few new ones in the mix. That has pretty much been Adobe's take on the Functional Content, in many programs. There will be a few additions, and maybe a "retirement," or two. There is seldom a complete re-do, where the material is totally replaced.

               

              The biggest change that I have observed, has been with CS5, and the loss of some 32-bit only Effects and a few Transitions being retired, as everything went over to 64-bit. If PrE goes 64-bit, I feel that we will see the same thing there.

               

              Greatly appreciated,
