FCE and PSE slideshows

Postby nascar » Sun Jun 13, 2010 6:17 pm

I am considering purchasing am iMAC after years of wrestling with PE and Microsoft issues (ie virus software compatibility, system freezes etc).

Can slideshows created in PSE (yes I would get the MAC version) be exported to FCE? Is the process straightforward or are there mutiple steps and software involved?

thanks.

I don't know the answer but I'd suggest you go to http://discussions.apple.com/forum.jspa?forumID=936 and ask there. It's a very down-to-earth forum (not having quite the same quantity of friendly, supportive chat you find here) but, like here, they know their stuff.

FCE continues to amaze me with it's power and stability. Yesterday I needed to cut and paste masses of individual clips and titles from various projects to another. Is that at last possible in PE8? It's SO easy in FCE!

If you do go the FCE route then give over a couple of hours to the free http://www.izzyvideo.com/learn-final-cut-express/ - it's brilliant.

Oh, by the way, for Photoshop (and all my other Windows software that I invested in over the years) I use VMWare Fusion on my iMac. It's just another 'feature' that makes the switch so easy.

A lot depends on what you mean by "exported to FCE," too.

You can certainly output any video from Premiere Elements as a Quicktime/MOV file and import that video into iMovie or Final Cut.

But you can't open a Premiere Elements project file in iMovie or Final Cut, if that's what you're asking.

Steve, Do you know what the MAC Photoshop Elements Slideshow Creator exports files as?
You can do a Send to Premiere Elements but what other options are there on the MAC version that would work with FCE?
The original question was for the Photoshop Elements MAC version Slideshow Creator, not anything about Premiere Elements ;)

Chuck stated my question more eloquently than I did. That is exactly what I am trying to answer.

Thanks for all the replies as they are helpful.

The Photoshop Elements slideshow creator -- that one that exports to Premiere Elements -- is actually a part of the Organizer. And as far as I can see, the Mac version of Photoshop Elements uses a version of Bridge, not the Organizer, as its file manager.

In other words, I don't think you can export a slideshow from Photoshop Elements to Final Cut.

FWIW, the iPhoto/iMovie/iLife bundle, though, very much has a workflow from photos to slideshow to video though.

Steve,
that is basically what I expected.

I did some additional research which confirmed that the Mac version of Photoshop Elements does NOT have the slide show editor of the Windows Photoshop Elements. The Mac version has only a very basic PDF output slide show. So I don't see any realistic potential for a Mac PSE to FCE workflow.
