Video: Sharing from the Tasks panel

When you have finally wrapped up your project, it's time to share it. You can share it all or part of it using two principle methods plus maybe one sort of sub-method and I'll show you all three methods in this tutorial. If you want to follow along, open up the 14-sharing project and when you do that, you will see two full videos on here that we used in the DVD menu tutorial. Now we are going to share this project in multiple ways. As I said, we will start off with the easiest way. I want to just share an image from this particular story, so I'll just kind of move my cursor over to some place that works for me in terms of an image. If I want to just grab that as a Freeze Frame, for example, I can click this little icon here, the Freeze Frame icon.

Sharing from the Tasks panel

When you have finally wrapped up your project, it's time to share it. You can share it all or part of it using two principle methods plus maybe one sort of sub-method and I'll show you all three methods in this tutorial. If you want to follow along, open up the 14-sharing project and when you do that, you will see two full videos on here that we used in the DVD menu tutorial. Now we are going to share this project in multiple ways. As I said, we will start off with the easiest way. I want to just share an image from this particular story, so I'll just kind of move my cursor over to some place that works for me in terms of an image. If I want to just grab that as a Freeze Frame, for example, I can click this little icon here, the Freeze Frame icon.

When I do that it says Export or Insert it in the Movie. Well, I'll just export. When I do that, it opens up this dialog box, the Export Frame dialog box and it's going to save this as a Windows bitmap file. But I can save it as something else if I want to. I'm going to Settings and change to -- it could be a GIF, JPEG, Targa, TIFF. Whatever one I choose, it will save it as that format. It will put it in this particular folder and then add it to the project so we can then drop it in the movie later as a five-second still image. So that's just the basic way to save a frame, a still image, but there are two main ways to save the entire project or parts of the project. The first is to export it. Go File > Export. This is a very basic way to save things, this creates files that are uncompressed for the most part. First one is a movie.

If I click Movie, it will save your project as an AVI file, an uncompressed Microsoft Digital Video AVI. AVI is Audio Video Interleaved. This is a full resolution uncompressed file. If I click Settings, it lets me choose other things like still images and stuff but that is the principle thing. To put the entire project out or what's called a Work Area Bar. Let me show you what I mean by Work Area Bar. This is the Work Area Bar, this gray thing here. You can grab the handles to select all or part of your video.

If I go here, the handle is going to jump to the beginning. I can just save this one video out of the entire project in that fashion. So I can go File > Export > Movie and I can say over here under Settings, instead of the Entire Timeline with the entire sequence as they call it, just say the Work Area Bar. Export Audio and Video and click OK. Then I need to give it a file name and save it. That will save that entire edited video as a single video clip. If I want to save just the audio, let's say, just this music, for example, or just the sound here, I'll go File > Export > Audio.

In this case, it just says Audio Only and the file type is going to be a WAV file. It's a Windows Waveform file but again, I could change the setting if I want to, to a different kind of file format, QuickTime or AVI or Windows Audio Interchange File Format. That's AIFF, which is usually on the Macs quite frequently. So that's the way you get just audio out and then finally, you can save just a frame, which is not going to be put into your project. If you go File > Export > Frame, it will save this frame and just save it. It's not automatically dropped into your program unless you ask it to be to, like right there, Add to Project When Finished.

If you un-check that, it just saves it up there in the file folder and you are done. It's a great way just to get still images that you can use in other projects. This is a saved freeze frame that goes into your project and this way, you save a frame that doesn't have to go into your project. But the main sharing thing, the one that is really prominent in Premiere Elements is obviously right up there in the upper right-hand corner, Share. If you click that, this gives you several options. The first one is Disc. Now if I click that, it opens up the burning the DVD menu and you can choose between either a standard DVD or Blu-ray. Blu-ray obviously holds much more information. If you have a standard DVD player or a DVD recorder, you put your recordable DVD inside your DVD recorder and it says Ready. When that little thing says Ready, it means that DVD-R or DVD-RW or DV-R or DV+R is in there and ready to be recorded. Now you can choose a preset and a preset is based upon the format of the video, either it's widescreen or it's theater definition.

This could be NTSC or PAL. So you just select that. In this case, it would be this because it's theater definition NTSC. This thing says Fit Contents to available space. Well, this works if you have a project that is huge and would be bigger than the DVD or the Blu-ray, and our project is not. So I un-check that. If I go give me the Highest Quality, it will say it will take 357 megabytes, which is barely scratching the surface of a DVD which has more than four gigabytes of available space. If I click this button, Fit Contents, you will see that it's still 357 so it doesn't matter which one I choose in this particular case. One choice that you have when you are inside the DVD section is whether you are going to export this as an auto-play DVD which is something that just plays automatically when you stick it outside the DVD player. There is no menu; it just fires up the video.

And you typically do that if you just want to have a video on a DVD. Or whether it's going to be a DVD with menus. This DVD already has menus on it, so if this is going to be exported to DVD, it will automatically create a DVD with menus. If there are no menus in your program, then it will automatically create an auto-play DVD. You are going to do that based upon whether you have set it up for menus or not. So that's making a DVD, and let me go back here to talk about making something for online presentation. If I click this, it gives you two choices. I want to have a format specifically for YouTube, which is a Flash preset for YouTube.

What YouTube does is take any kind of video that is uploaded in the YouTube and converts it into Flash. Well, if you hand them the Flash file in advance then you don't have to worry about any kind of compression that causes the video to lose quality since this is the preset that YouTube wants you to use when you upload. If you click My Website, it gives you a few more Flash options in terms of the quality. We will go back now. Try the Personal Computer. A personal computer gives you the most options. You can do Flash video, MPEG, which is used frequently for DVDs. But this is not a DVD type of MPEG; this is MPEG1. DV AVI, which is a full resolution just like the DVI when we want to File > Export. Windows Media is a compressed thing. QuickTime is also compressed. It is used frequently on Macs but also on the PCs. And you just pick one of these guys and once you pick one, then there will be some options down here under Advanced in terms of if you want to change just export only for audio or export only video. You can change some other characteristics of this as well in terms of the compression quality.

Back to one more little thing. Mobile Phones and Players. Basically pick out the mobile phone or player that you have or that you want to export to. There is a generic one down here which allows you to customize it but for the most part, just picks out something that works for you. Then finally, Tape. You can export your project back to a videocassette recorder or a camcorder. We have one plugged in right now and if it's plugged in, this shows up and says okay, do you want to have a little Preroll? Do you want the tape to start recording and just have black recording for awhile and then boom, start recording your project, or you want to record it right away? But anyway, this is a fairly simple process. You just say Record, this thing activates your recorder, gets it rolling and starts recording back to your tape.

So that's basically how you can share your project using the two main methods: the export and the share method.
