I'm new to video editing.  I've had limited success with making DVDs (without editing) from bundled programs that came with my PC.   I have a library of Sony Hi-8 and Mini-DV tapes, plus recent full HD AVCHD digital from a new JVC video camera.  Is ADOBE Premiere CS3, 4, or 5 suitable for a novice and will it handle the aforementioned video formats?  Should I instead be looking at ADOBE Premiere Elements or something similar?  I've watch an aquaintence use Elements 7 and it seemed to have all the tools I'd be interested in, yet I don't know if it would handle and integrate my three different formats.  My PC has a Core 2 Quad processor Q6600, NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT graphics, and 3 GB ram. Any recommendations?

Welcome to the forum.Unfortunately, you have posted to the wrong one - this is for discussion on the fora in general, and is not product-specific.For Video Editing, you will want the Premiere fora. Note: CS5 PrPro is the current "pro" version, and PrElements is the "consumer" version. Also, for DVD authoring, the Encore Forum is for that Adobe product.People in those fora can give you all the info that you need - see you there.Good luck,Hunt
