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.
For this movie I'm going to using in the Posting project in the chapter 13 folder. Basically, we're done here. All we have to do now is to upload this to YouTube. Now we talked about this a little bit earlier on in this training series, but now I'm actually going to walk you through the process of how to upload it. So we're going to go over into the Tasks panel, click on the Share Workspace. We are going to click Online, under start a new share, and making sure that YouTube is selected here, go ahead and click on Next.
And you've got to give that just a minute to launch YouTube, but as you can see here you could sign into YouTube from right here inside Premiere Elements. If you're not a member of YouTube, you'll need to be before you upload your video. So you just click on Sign Up Now. It's free so all you have to do is just create an account. I already have one with my podcast so I am going to use my information here. I'm going to click on Next to login to YouTube and here you put some information about your video, so I'm going to call this Premiere Elements Guitar Hero.
I am just going to say this is a lynda.com training video on Premiere Elements, using the author's son rocking out to Guitar Hero III. Under Tags this is where you just put information so if you want it to be searchable, so people can find it when they are just kind of browsing around, you can put in information. So I might put Premiere_Elements_4. I might put lynda.com, I might put guitar. I might put hero or training or whatever else I want.
I could select a category this will be filed under. I think that in this one, People & Blogs, probably fits just fine and then I'm going to go ahead and click Next. YouTube will then ask you if you have the rights to this, or if you want to share it with everyone. It will remind you that you cannot upload stuff that's copyrighted, that you don't have authority to publish. So I do want to allow public view of this share and then I'm just going to go ahead and click Share. So essentially you'll see three bars. You will see one bar that will indicate that time it's taking Premiere Elements to actually render the video.
One that will upload the video to the internet and it transfer it to YouTube. Once you're done, you get this link that's straight to your video, so you can then copy and paste this link, send it to friends or whatever you want. Be advised that sometimes it takes a few minutes for it to finish uploading to YouTube, so it may not be ready exactly as soon as you're done rendering and posting. It may take five, ten minutes before you can use this link to go watch the video. That's all there is to uploading you video to YouTube.
You don't actually you have to go on the internet and launch your internet browser to do this. You could do this straight from Premiere Elements. Now we have a final project from total start to total finish. We've made this great video, we've shared it with the world. Good times, folks.
