Whether you're new to the program altogether or a pro who needs a refresher on the latest features, author Steve Grisetti gets you up and running quickly with Premiere Elements 11, the affordable and intuitive video-editing program from Adobe.
The course walks through the entire editing workflow, from importing and organizing your raw assets, to timeline editing in Quick view and Expert view, to sharing your work on DVD, Blu-ray, or on the web. Along the way, you'll discover how to enhance your basic videos with voiceover, slow motion, transitions, titles, and a solid soundtrack. In less than three hours, this course will show you what you need to know to create polished gems from almost any kind of raw footage, from tape-based DV, to AVCHD, to smartphone and iPad video footage.
Premiere Elements includes a number of tools for outputting your finished videos. It even includes tools for outputting videos for iPads and iPods, Sony PSPs, and smartphones. And the output files that it creates are in a format and in a resolution that's optimized for these particular devices. We've got a completed movie on our timeline here. Let's share it to a device. Click on Publish+Share in the upper- right corner of the program and select the option Mobile Phones and Players. And you can see that it's got a number of options for you: the Apple iPod, iPad and iPhone, an Audio Podcast, a Pocket PC, a Smartphone, Sony PSP, or a Mobile Phone. And whatever you select, if you look down here, you can see it will create an optimized file that's ideal to play on that particular device.
If you select, for instance, the Sony PSP, you can see it creates an H.264-- that's an MP4--at 320 x 240. That's a low-resolution video. If you select an Apple iPod, iPad, or iPhone and go to the Presets menu, you see that there are a variety of options for you, depending on what you're saving for. So if you're saving it to an iPhone or iPod--these are smaller screens--you can see you choose in Low Quality, Medium Quality, or High Quality.
High Quality creates 400 x 300 pixels, still fairly low resolution, that it creates an H.264, which is an MP4. If you select the option here for an iPad High Quality, the file is 640 x 480. And you can go all the way up to select something for and iPad or Apple TV at 1080p--in other words, a high definition video that will play on your iPad or iPod. And then it's as simple as clicking Save and it will output your video.
Now, unfortunately, it doesn't send your video directly to the device. It will send it to you computer and then you move it to your device, and you can do that with whatever interface software you have. So if you have a smartphone, you probably have interface software for moving videos and photos back and forth to your device. If you're using an Apple device, like an iPod, an iPad, or an iPhone, you can then move it into iTunes, sync up your device, and it will move the video directly to your Apple device. So as you can see, in Premiere Elements, Adobe has really made an effort to create the total package.
It's a program that downloads or captures your video from your camcorder or your portable device, edits it, mixes the audio, adds effects and titles, and then sends out an optimized video to whatever device or website you want to share your movie masterpiece on.
