Adobe Premiere Elements 2
Premiere Elements' arsenal of video and audio effects has been beefed up with this release, and we greatly prefer how the streamlined interface makes it easy to find them. You still won't find the fun filters of other tools, but it has professional blur and color effects that the others can't touch.

Time is elastic
While our own videos haven't included a lot of slow-mo or Benny Hill-style speeded-up footage, we're still impressed by how simple this version makes altering the speed of a scene: you simply select the Time Stretch button on the left of the timeline and drag the clip. That makes matching the length of an audio clip a snap. This version also adds support for Dolby audio, a must-have that was surprisingly missing from the first release.
