bizarre inadequate and impractical limitation in number of scene markers.
on 18 November 2012
I have gone back to using Premiere Elements 8. Bought Elements 10 a while ago because of it being 64 bit. Found it quicker and more stable then Elements 8, but was surprised and frustrated to find that it only allowed 25 scene markers. Not sufficient when editing family video 150 minute Blu-Ray projects with multiple short recordings. I downloaded a trial version of Elements 11 prior to buying, specifically to check for any scene marker limit, and was able to put as many scene markers on a test project as I wanted. However, I made the mistake of not trying to write the test project to BluRay before buying Elements 11. When I went to write my first project to BluRay, only 25 markers were recognised. It is a shame that Adobe have persisted in this ridiculous limitation in scene markers, because I did find Elements 11 straightforward and stable with regards to the editing features which I require from editing software. If it allowed as many scene markers as its Premiere Elements 8 predecessor, I would have given it 4*s. It is also surprising that this limitation in scene markers is not made clear in the product description, and moreso that the programme allows > 25 scene markers to be placed in a project with the limitation only becoming apparent when trying to write the project to disc.
