3.0 out of 5 stars Problem with entering Digital Access Code 16 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found it difficult to know if my digital access code supplied in the book was installed. I emailed peachpit about the matter and they looked for receipt of purchase. I emailed the confirmation of payment received from Amazon but they kept looking for a receipt of payment. In any event I succeeded in entering and running the digital content later

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst training experience ever 17 Nov 2013
By Ted Gundersen - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The lesson files cause the Organizer to crash. If you have Photoshop Elements 12 also, that organizer crashes. I was lucky to have Elements 10 installed on my PC. I was able to convert that catalog to Elements 12, and now both programs work. It took me days and a lot of help to learn how to convert the catalog. Without that help, I would still not be functioning. I contacted Peachpit, the publisher, five days ago. I have yet to hear from them. The help I got was from Adobe Forum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Course 1 Jan 2014
By John A. - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the first course that I can give 5 stars. I've taken many interactive courses but this course anticipates questions and gives advice on how to re-do areas after you've tried it. It is geared to home video productions and fits my needs. The only area for improvement is a better discussion of media usage and limitations on project size to fit the media. The PE12 software doesn't warn you that the length of your production is or will exceed the capacity of the DVD media, therefore, a discussion/warning should be included to prompt the user to split a big project into parts rather than getting a message that the project exceeds the media size after doing the work and then having to delete clips to reduce the size to match the media.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not ready for prime time 2 Mar 2014
By JohnCJ2 - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used Adobe products for at least 17 years and have always learned the programs using Classroom in a Book. I have worked through every page of every lesson of this book. The product is substandard, but I believe it is not the author's fault. To begin with, he created this book and its lesson projects using a preliminary version of the software, and there are many examples of unexpected changes. For example, on page 245, unlike the illustration, "scene selection" does not appear until you have placed menu markers, which you either have to find on your own, or read ahead a few pages and work backward. Organizer is deeply flawed. It crashed literally dozens of times while I worked with chapters 1 and 4. I couldn't work Chapter 12 at all until I found the recommendation in an adjacent review that you need to use msconfig to uncheck elementsautoanalyzer. The worst problem is that Adobe does not provide a distribution disc of the chapter Lessons. You have to download them from in compressed format. Each Lesson is at least 200 MB. For me the 12 chapters of download took 4 hours. While you don't have to sit and watch, you have to check your computer every 15 minutes or so to save and download the next lesson. Then, after you extract the files, APE12 fails to open most but not all of the lessons. Working through the book took me at least double the normal time because I didn't have the lesson materials available. I believe Adobe excluded the distribution disc to save $0.25 and to prevent secondary users from using the book. Basically, they failed to deliver the purchased content to those who purchased the book. I learned APE12 using this book. I am glad I upgraded. But Adobe owes to everyone who purchased APE12 and this book an apology, a repaired version of Organizer, a revised copy of this book reflecting the program as it exists, and a distribution disc of the lessons. Shame on you, Adobe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Video Editing at lowest price 29 Mar 2014
By Jan Lloyd - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This product is easy to use, like Microsoft Movie Maker, but also has some complex timeline capabilities. I especially like pan and zoom and working with keyframes. Premiere Elements does everything I need for the art videos I am producing. I also purchased the Adobe Classroom in a Book ISBN-13: 978-0-321-94981-3 which has clear instructions for those who have never experienced video editing before.

You can't beat the Adobe products! Why else are they industry standard.
