Right I'll take a look too thanks -
I'd guessed as I use PrE too someone here might have thoughts on it?
Several users do have PSE and PrE, and will have comments on using the two together.
Our tireless MOD, Steve Grisetti, not only uses both, but has written books on using the two.
I use the full Photoshop, and while it will do many things, with files to/from PrE, does not directly interface, like PSE does, so I am of little, to no help here.
I am sure that you will soon have all the answers, and good luck,
Premiere Elements and the Elements Organizer each have their own media downloaders and importers, designed to interface most efficiently with their program.
If you plan to use the photos or videos from your camera/camcorder in a Premiere Elements project, you're best to use the photo downloader or video importer built into Premiere Elements' Get Media tools.
Ah right, so as my camera is a dual camera, doing both videos and photos, then if I specifically want to import just video then I should access it from within PrE, and if I want to import photo's then do it from within PSE?
Assuming I got that right...? Lets just say I had a different camera doing stills only.. then could I "teach" the downloader to notice which camera it was coming from and it automatially put filter them into the different video or photo file respectively?
Have you tried Premiere Elements' Get Media tools? There is a video importer and a media downloader.
You can also use any program you want to get the photos and video from your camera -- The Elements Organizer, Picasa, HP's photo downloader, Windows Explorer. But each program tends to store your photos in another location. So it's up to you how complicated you want to make the process.
No not yet - I am still keen, but very much a learner..
Thanks for the info!
