Favorite Moment Trimming

Favorite Moments with favorite people

Now with Face Detection, Favorite Moments automatically finds the people in your videos and brings them front and center in fun, quick movies. With the Face filter enabled, the Favorite Motions trimming workflow now generates output that focuses on the movements as well as on People and give priority to close-ups and single/multiple faces.

For more information, see Mark and extract favorite moments.

Smart Trim

Easier to trim what you don't need and keep the people!

Now with Face Detection, Smart Trim gives priority to footage of people when suggesting places to trim, so you’ get a great movie of friends and family. With the addition of the Face Filter in Adobe Premiere Elements, you now have the option to use the interest slider along with the quality slider in the Smart Trim workflow.
