Video: Sharing your project to a video file

Okay, so we've shared with the world on YouTube and now we want to make a file that we can put on our computer. Maybe we're going to take our laptop somewhere. We want to show everybody our wonderful video here. So let's take a look at how to do that. So once again, we were in the Share--and let me just go back a second--and we chose Computer. And let's look at our different choices here. So we've got Flash Video that we can export as as an F4V file, FLV as well, and there are some web design programs out there that you may be using, and you can just drag on this file into that, so they can play on your web site.

Sharing your project to a video file

Okay, so we've shared with the world on YouTube and now we want to make a file that we can put on our computer. Maybe we're going to take our laptop somewhere. We want to show everybody our wonderful video here. So let's take a look at how to do that. So once again, we were in the Share--and let me just go back a second--and we chose Computer. And let's look at our different choices here. So we've got Flash Video that we can export as as an F4V file, FLV as well, and there are some web design programs out there that you may be using, and you can just drag on this file into that, so they can play on your web site.

MPEG is great to keep a hard-drive copy of, because you might want to make more DVD later, and you don't have to re-render. You can just drag that onto a DVD- burning program and create DVDs. AVCHD, this is a new addition to Elements 10, and it's a great archiving format. It's a high-definition format, and there are some great presents here. Let's take a look. We can not only just go into the M2T, which is their format, but there is a MPEG4, which is a really great codec. If you have TiVo at home, you can make a TiVo NTSC, which is a North American Standard or you can make a high- definition version. And once again, here's Vimeo HD and YouTube HD, and Vimeo is a video sharing site on the web that's really popular and really has a great user interface as well, so we have all these options.

Let's go a little further. The next is QuickTime, so if you want to make a QuickTime file for our hard drive just to keep it there and play whenever. Default is NTSC, DV. It's got 16:9 and other views. You can also go into advanced here, if you want to get really technical, and maybe let's make it widescreen, 16:9. And then I can choose a different codec so if you're familiar with them. I'm not going to go over all of the codecs, but there is quite a bit. The animation, for example, is a mastering codec and your file sizes will be ginormous.

So if you are going to go in here and play around, start with like an H.264 and work your way around from there. You can also change audio, so there is lot of options here to customize your work. And let see what's next. Image file here, so if you had a line of image sequences, different photos, you wanted to make an image sequence, you can just use those to export, and it gives you a couple of presets for that as well. And then audio, let's say you just want the audio only. Maybe you want people to hear you're doing some kind of documentary and the audio would be great to listen to on your iPhone or something on the way to work, so you can export that right there. And here are the different presets.

I would stick with the MP3 or the AIFF for compatibility. And then of course, you change your file name and where you're going to save it. So let's go back and find something we want to save. I want to go make an AVCHD. I'm going to choose the Vimeo HD format. I think it's a pretty popular and standard format that we can save and archive things in. It renders out really smooth file, and the file size is pretty contained as well, so let's keep that. I could also upload it later on if I want to go up to a file sharing site, and it's already pre-rendered, so let's take a look.

So I'm going to change this to thedance, and we'll just save this on the desktop. And I'm going to do, once again, the WorkArea Bar Only. And I could go into the Advanced settings and change things here, but by the default this look pretty good. And we'll press Save, and now it's rendering it out. So as you can see, we've successfully saved, so let's take a look at our awesome video render.

So I'm going to minimize Elements 10 by clicking this button right here, and here it is on the desktop. Let's see what it looks like. I'll double-click on it, and there it is in high-definition glory, and we'll press play. (clip playing) So there we go. It looked great! Let's go back and get Premiere back up here. And that's all you need to do to save your movie out to a file that you can access later.
