Adobe Premiere Elements 2

Version 2 of Adobe's enthusiast video-editing package sprinkles important improvements all around the program, making basic editing easier, allowing the program to import video from more than just standard camcorders, providing far better DVD menu options, and much more. It's by far the most professional of the consumer-level video editors, and as before it can be intimidating and isn't for the dabbler. If you'd prefer to turn out attractive videos quickly, look to Ulead VideoStudio 9; but for creating polished videos on a budget, Adobe Premiere Elements 2 can't be beat.
