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.
In this brief movie we're going to look at how to share your video on mobile devices and for actually all kinds of stuff. So I'm using the Mobile Devices Project in the Chapter 11 folder, if you'd like to follow along, but it's basically the same project as the YouTube project, if you're following along with that one, it will do just fine. Actually any video will work just fine here. So we'll go ahead and go to the Share Workspace in the Tasks panel and instead of choosing Disk or Online, we're going to choose Mobile Phones and Players. Now what you can do here is go to the top and there are all sorts of categories for Apple iPod and iPhone.
If you're going to create an audio podcast to be played back on an iPod or what have you, if you use the Creative Zen, the MP3 player, the Microsoft Zune, whether you want to share on a Pocket PC, SmartPhone, Sony PSP, or just a generic mobile phone, you can select that here. So I can click on Mobile Phone for example, and I can choose the different types of setting. Most cell phones use the 3GP standard. It's kind of like the standard video format for cell phones.
So from this dropdown you can actually pick which mobile phone type you have, your pixel dimensions and all that stuff. You'll notice these presets change based on which preset you choose up top or which device you're outputting to. So if I select Apple iPod and iPhone, you wouldn't see the 3G settings, basically I have high quality and medium quality. And then really all you have to do from there is click in here to type a name and under Save in or next to Save in, click Browse, to determine where to save it and then just click Save.
And that's all there is to it. Now this as a brief word about this, this is really huge. This is really an amazing thing, because each one of these devices has its own peculiar setting. They are tough to figure out sometimes, they're tough to know the frame rate and the size and the type of video you should use, and all that kind of stuff. So it really is no small thing that Premiere Elements can output to all these different specialty devices and formats. Pretty cool stuff. In the final movie in this chapter, we're going to look at exporting just a regular old movie file on to your computer and that is next.
