Adobe has said that its latest Premiere Elements package; version 6, will only support export options for Blu-ray rather than HD DVD.

An Adobe spokesman told Pocket-lint that he wasn't sure why the next gen high-def format isn't supported in the company's software, however talking to industry insiders who wanted to remain anonymous, they believed that it was pressure from laptop maker Sony insisting that the rival format isn't supported in the software.

"Adobe works closely with Sony. Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements are shipped as standard with Sony Vaio PCs", one source told Pocket-lint.

The move is likely to outrage Toshiba and Acer laptop users wanting to use the new version of the movie editing software who've opted for a HD DVD in their computers rather than Blu-ray.
