I don't get it???
I wanted to complain about Prem Elements and I've ended up here???

The new Image stabilization is the most mindbogglingly thoughtless 'brand new feature' in Elements 13!

The feature is pulled from Prem Pro (and it's pretty much the only reason I upgraded the software as Adobe likes to dribble out useful Element updates) so when stabilization is applied to a clip whose resolution doesn't match the project, the effect flashes up a banner announcing that the project rez must match the clip.

So if you have a project that mixes a selection of SLR, phone, and Gopro resolutions (say 720p 1080p, 4k, and maybe one of those weird little Gopro small rez high fps options), you're stuffed.

This is fine if the user is in Prem Pro, cause one can just trigger a 'nest', and alter the project dimensions there. But Prem Elements doesn't allow nested projects (as far as I can tell).

Then I discover that Adobe has removed the previous image stab. so I can't even 'fall back' on something that did work.

With the selection of open source (Lightworks, Blender) and FREE (Blackmagic) pro tools that are now becoming available, Adobe should be thinking a little more about the customer!

I did a bit of research and have found that not only can I replace PE with Blackmagic products that are free, I can get rid of my CC subscription as well.
