How it works:
Pyro Pro A/V Link: The AV Link attaches to your FireWire port and allows you to capture and export footage from any VHS, S-VHS, 8mm of Hi8 camcorder or deck. In addition to basic composite (RCA) and S-Video jacks, it also includes Component video input & output.
Premiere Elements taps into much of the real-time performance of Adobe Premiere Pro. It is Adobe's re-entry into the consumer video editing market. Elements has a more advanced toolset than any other consumer NLE and it is pretty easy to use - thanks to the Context-sensitive How-Tos that help guide you through every step of the editing process, from transferring footage to burning DVDs. You'll be able to preview your edits and effects in real-time on your computer monitor and with a TV hooked up to the analog output of the AV link.
You get a ton of professional looking filters and effects, and you can mix multiple layers of video and graphics together. Best of all they are keyframable, which means you can change and control them over time to get the customized look you envisioned. This allows you to make videos that look like they were made using much more expensive and complicated software. The custom effects you create with all your keyframing can be saved as presets for future use. The titling in Adobe Premiere Elements is also very nice. You get over 100 professionally designed templates for new baby announcements, weddings, sporting events, and more.
