How Premiere Elements fits into video production

Adobe Premiere Elements includes all the tools necessary to acquire the footage from your Digital Video (DV) camera so that you can begin assembling your movie. The process is easy: you simply connect your DV camera to your computer, and then enable the Capture command in Adobe Premiere Elements. When you're done capturing, you click Stop. You can initiate a capture immediately after the program starts or at any time while you are working. As Adobe Premiere Elements captures video, it detects all the tape's stops and pauses, and captures each separate recording as an individual scene. Each scene becomes a separate file, or clip, on your computer. Once you finish capturing, the clips appear in the Timeline window, ready for editing.

The rest of this lesson describes fundamental concepts that affect video editing and other post-production tasks in Premiere Elements. All the concepts in this section and the specific Premiere Elements features that support them are described in more detail in the Adobe Premiere Elements User Guide.
