Already using Premiere Elements11, I decided to go for 12 - Well what's new, the answer not a lot apart from a few new "tricks" nothing to note, Adobe still persist in giving us rubbish & amateurish menus for discs that only the most unseasoned Videographer would use & most are very childish to say the least, some can be altered quite a bit though (thankfully), the layout is identical to version 11, but this is no bad thing as this was a new interface & to be quite honest was a god send compared to version 10 & below.
So, 12 has brought items like motion tracking, you can add a graphic or video to track a moving object, but cannot use the text tool to add to this, a bad omission as far as I'm concerned, other new stuff includes music scores & sound effects, personally I prefer to use my own rather than these terrible music additions.
intelligent video correction with auto smart correction - works well, but not really necessary if you've done things right in the first place.
Guided edits - this will help those who are new to Premiere elements, Sony have been doing it for years with their video software.
and last AND defiantly least you can now share all your videos on those infernal iPod/Pads, smart phones etc. - Just for the little boys & girls to play with..... come on Adobe make a Videographer happy make a Premiere elements version that is for real video makers not just to play with.... or make the pro version more affordable.
If you already own PE11 then 12 is not worth the money, If you need decent Video editing software, then you cannot go wrong with Premiere elements 12, it won't let you down, but forget the stupid bits.
