Digital video is a medium that is now available to almost everyone. It can be captured on anything from a mobile phone to a high-definition camera, and published anywhere from YouTube to Blu-ray discs. In Premiere Elements 4 Essential Training, Adobe Certified Instructor Chad Perkins explores all the video editing capabilities of Premiere Elements 4. Chad starts with a real-world sample project, then covers techniques for importing and editing video; and adding effects, transitions, and animation. He concludes with a final project incorporating all the steps, including exporting and posting. Exercise files accompany the course.
Alright, in this movie we're going to talk about exporting your video to the very popular video sharing site YouTube.com, and boy, it just couldn't get any easier. I'm using this project YouTube found in the Chapter 11 folder, if you'd like to follow along, but pretty much any video you have will do. Let's go over to the Share Workspace in the Tasks panel. Click Online, and basically you have two choices,. You could send this directly to your own personal website if you have FTP information, you can put in the Server, Directory, User, Password all that kind of stuff here, but we're specifically talking about YouTube. So all you have to do is select YouTube and there really aren't any choices for Presets or Quality, it just does everything for you.
It automatically shrinks it down to YouTube's file size, 320x240 pixels, that's not the size of our original project, but it does that for you automatically anyways. The File Size of this project is 9.1 MB and the Duration is 56 seconds, and it says the File Size Max is 100 MB, this is a YouTube restriction, also the maximum duration of video for YouTube is ten minutes long. So if you have a two hour movie that you want to upload to YouTube, guess what? Sorry, out of luck. They only allow you 10 minutes and 100 MB max on YouTube.
Once you're done with that, click Next, and Premiere Elements will automatically get this ready for YouTube. Another one of the benefits of this is that usually like I send our podcasts, I have a little video podcast with my brother Todd where we do training in Adobe products like this, and a lot times I'll make the podcasts on my computer and it's already compressed and then I'll put it up on YouTube again, it will compress it again, and by time it's been compressed so many times the quality is just not looking so hot. So this way you can export it to YouTube just straight away and just have it ready for YouTube right from the gate. So you have one less round of compression that the video has to go to making it that much more high quality.
In the next movie we're going to look at how to put your video onto mobile devices, iPods, iPhones, Zunes, etcetera. Coming up next!
