I’m considering an upgrade from Adobe Premiere Elements (APE) 1.0 to version 2.0. Below are the System Requirements for APE 2.0. I got these directly from Adobe.com
Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0 "System Requirements:
IntelÂ® PentiumÂ® 4, M, D, or Extreme Edition or AMD Opteron or Athlon 64 (SSE2 support required)
MicrosoftÂ® WindowsÂ® XP Professional, Home Edition, or Media Center Edition with Service Pack 2
256MB of RAM
4GB of available hard-disk space
DVD-ROM drive (compatible DVD burner required to burn DVDs)
1,024x768 16-bit XGA display
Microsoft DirectX 9 compatible sound and display drivers
DV/i.LINK/FireWire/IEEE 1394 interface to connect a Digital 8 or DV camcorder, or a USB2 interface to connect a DV-via-USB-compatible DV camcorder (other video devices supported via the Media Downloader)
I understand most of the requirements, but the two requirements that I highlighted with blue text have me at a loss.
I simply don’t know how to determine if my computer meets these requirements. Could someone please tell me how I could determine this?
