I'm the secretary for an amateur a capella choir in Vught, the Netherlands.
Regulary I recieve video-recordings and photographs of our performances, which I usually share with our members through our site.
Recently I recieved from several choir members the request whether I could make a DVD of our latest performance, which was very good indeed, thank you very much.
As I didn't have a video-editor I purchased Premiere Elements 11, and in no time I was tickled pink with this purchase.
I rarely used an application that was so intuitive and easy to use.
Very soon after starting I decided to go for the full DVD menu structure in stead of the direct play variant. Even as a novice at video-editing, I managed to create a fantastic DVD which has a very professional look about it. The only let-down are the actual video-recordings....the camera handling is clearly amateurish - too much pan and zoom - compared with the rest of the DVD, 'though the music is beautiful.
I combined several recordings of two performances into one single recording. The "time stretch" function was very helpfull in synchronizing the several recordings to a level where the lip-movements were almost inperceptably out-of-sync with the music(less than a single frame of about 0.04 seconds). Thus I created the impression that a single performance was recorded from multiple camera positions. The transitions and titles&text functionality made the creation almost perfect.
As I was busy anyway, I added, for good measure, a photo-presentation on music as well as an older performance which was given the same multirecording treatment as described before.
The menu markers were very usefull as well as easy to use, 'though I have some ideas about optimizing this functionality (see "share an idea").

all in all....thank you very much for Premiere Elements 11

With the kindest regards
