From: Creating a Mini Documentary with Premiere Elements

Video: Posting to YouTube

One exciting option for digital distribution is YouTube. And Premiere Elements makes it extremely easy to export directly to YouTube from the editing interface. Before we see how that's done, we need to render the timeline before we make any outputs. I'm going to tap Return to render, and then we will have to wait a second. Again, we start our export process with the Share window.

Before we see how that's done, we need to render the timeline before we make any outputs. I'm going to tap Return to render, and then we will have to wait a second. Again, we start our export process with the Share window.

This time we want to use one of the online choices. And YouTube is the one that we want to pick, although I do encourage you to experiment with other services. Here we have a few different presets, and mostly the difference is the resolution. Now you have a choice here, between standard def widescreen and we're definitely going to want to be widescreen.

This is going to be a little smaller than our 720 video. The other choice we have is 1080, but that's actually larger than our RAW video, and I wouldn't want to blow up our video at this stage. So I'm going to go with widescreen standard definition. You see that I have the option to share only the work area, not relevant for our mini-documentary. So I'll go to the next stage.

Here you sign in with your YouTube username and password. At that point, you'll be accessing your account directly and be able to enter information that will be part of the metadata on your page. If you want learn more about YouTube and these different options, or if you don't have an account and you want to learn how to make one, I encourage you to check out YouTube Essential Training on the lynda.com Online Training Library.

That's how we export to YouTube. And frankly it's one of my favorites because everyone knows about it, and it shows high-quality video and makes it easy to search and find videos.
