However frustrating the installation process was, it sounds from this review that running Premiere Elements is even worse. Thanks for the heads-up. Not an app to purchase.

Performance wise I also felt an overall lag using the program. It's not as bad but for a moment I wondered if I was using an AIR app.
I'll keep testing the trial to see if Premier Elements can replace iMovie since that's another tough one to use at times. Hoping for a new iLife 10/11 version of iMovie.

As for PE, if Adobe can come up with a consumer video editing app that is easier and more intuitive than iDisaster, they will stand to make a ton of money. It looks like PE is not it.

I must say I don't miss the old iMovie at all. The sound editing I leave to Garage Band (an interesting move by Apple) and with that iMovie is a complete easy to use editor.
I must say the format used by Elements looks almost identical to iMovie & the screenshot above looks just like the layout I use when using iMovie.

As it turns out, there is one, and it is not from Apple (much less from Adobe).
Take a look at Norrkross Movie. Much more powerful than iMovie (either 6 or later), much less complex to use than FCE. And made by one guy in Sweden.
I have iMovie (came with my mac), Norrkross and FCE (these two I bought). For heavy work, I use FCE; for simpler projects, Norrkross. I would not touch (and certainly would not buy) the current iMovie.
(Disclaimer: I have no connection to Norrkross except as a satisfied customer)
