Yes, Premier Elements 10 works with 1080p60 files -- but not completely.
It reads them fine. Rendering is a little different issue.
I'm in the middle of a project where I am using two camcorders and everything was shot in 1080p60. The cameras are a Sony HX9V and a Panasonic HDC-SDT-750 (a TM900 wanabee).
I've trimmed and joined a half dozen clips on the timeline. I've added a title and credit screen on a matte background with audio tracks. I've added separate audio clips to the time line. I've inserted a couple of .jpg stills to the primary video track. I need to create and add one more narrative clip to finish. In other words, it is not a long video, but a little complicated. And, it's my first effort at "complicated" editing.
To be on track with a TM900 thread, I couldn't begin to do what I wanted in HD Writer. I like HD Writer a lot for maintaining 1080p60 beginning to end. What I needed is an editor that goes beyond HD Writer.
Creating product is next. Premier Elements 10 offers lots of choices -- too many to describe. One thing I want is the highest quality file I can produce for a media player I have and one of the rendering presets is 1080p30. Influenced by other threads on this forum (Ungerman!), I chose it because of the "p" for progressive. On my 55 inch TV, the picture quality is terrific.
Premier Elements does not have rendering presets for 1080p60. I guess Adobe doesn't think that's needed or useful for a consumer editor. Could it be that playback opportunities for that are still limited? It seems that Adobe prefers to offer presets optimized for things like uploading to YouTube rather than uploading the 1080p60 and having YouTube's computers processes it.
I'm planning this project to include renders for my iPod Touch, an AVCHD DVD that I can send to my brother for his Blu-Ray player, a DVD to see what it looks like and uploads to YouTube and Vimeo (for which "optimized" presets are offered).
One of the half dozen things Adobe brags about being new in version 10 is the ability to make AVCHD DVDs directly. I'm looking forward to trying that. On my first test, it appears that it uses the 1080p60 clips and renders to 1080i60 on the DVD. It looked good on playback from by BD player even though the "p" turned into "i".
I hope this answers your question of if it handles 1080p60 from a TM900.
