Your goal when using Premiere Elements is to turn raw footage into a good story, one that will hold viewer's interest, has a beginning, middle and end rhythm and pacing. To correct that story, you typically go through several steps. A workflow that goes something like this. You first shoot your raw footage, then you transfer it to a computer hard drive, then review the video to identify clips worth using. Your goal at that point is to select compelling shots and sound bites and cut out extraneous stuff, jerky camera moves, out of focus shots, quick zooms and pans and long-winded interviews.
At that point, you start editing your video. There are several ways to approach that but most frequently editors first put those clips into what's called a rough cut, trim and possibly rearrange the clips to create a logical structure, record a narration, then add scene transitions, music and other audio, special video effects, graphics and on-screen text and then, when you are all done, share your finished product.
