Premiere Elements 9.0

Adobe has released Premiere Elements 9.0, the first time the formerly Windows-only consumer video editing software has appeared under Mac OS X. Premiere Elements boasts native AVCHD editing without the need to transcode footage; a Sceneline mode for editing movies in a far simpler manner than the full Timeline mode; integration with the new and included Adobe Elements 9 Organizer application for managing one's media library; and built-in DVD menu creation and burning capabilities, among other features. Premiere Elements 9 is available now as a downloadable installer (which also serves as a free trial version) or on disc. (For a full review of Premiere Elements 9, see Jeff Carlson's review in Macworld.) ($99 new, 1.71 GB)
