- Adobe Premiere Elements 10 for Mac OS X review/problems found.
First, in my opinion Adobe Premiere Elements is the best comsumer Movie Editor for Mac OS X at this moment, I actually like the iMovie speed and easy of work, but the quality output of iMovie is soooo BAD, that I consider it an insult.
Premiere Elements 10, is quite a powerful app for such an easy work path, unfortunately it's slow and has some bugs, here a list of what I think it should do and bugs I found:

- It's slow, for example when in the "export/share" tab it hangs the computer when scrolling for an export option, it's not even doing any hard work, just scrolling a list of text, this is very frustrating since we can't do anything.
- There's so much wasted space, we mostly only can see a line of effects transitions, and we loose lot of time trying to see the other lines, also, why there isn't a real preview of the transitions, I found it hard to understand the A to B effect, my videos have different colors and textures, it's not an A or B, I know this is a global problem in lot's of editing apps, but Adobe will be better to change this.
- Lack of intermediate codec, we all know that H264 is not great for editing and so on, so why not have the option to work with a good low compressed intermediate codec!?!? It would make everything a lot more faster.
- Sound, iMovie make is to simple to work with this, at least iMovie 6 HD did, nothing more simple than just drag a slider up and down if we want it to "uprising" or low all the sound etc.
- Templates. please something more clean, professional and good looking, most templates are just horrible, the same with the clipart!!!!
- Startuo configuration, it's just nonsense for most consumer users, make the first clip decide, get out that step of choosing DV, HD, 24p or 30, etc etc.
- I can't import an Mac OS X Premiere Elements project in the Windows version, this is not the perfect solution, Adobe will sell lot more if they ware interchangeable.

- Mostly we need SPEED! And easy drag and drop!!!

The good points is, Adobe keeps it compatible with Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard and 32 bits machine, since Apple is abandoning all this not so old Macs.
