Understanding project exporting

Video: Understanding project exporting

When you've finally wrapped up your project, it's time to share it. You can share a single image from your project, part of your project, or the entire project. I want to give you a basic overview of the possibilities and explain each one in more detail in the other movies in this chapter. As a point of clarification, you create your projects using settings that should have matched all or most of your original content. That could be High-Definition, Standard -Definition, DV widescreen and so on. No matter what settings you chose you can output to virtually any format. That's the beauty of working in Premiere Elements.

Understanding project exporting

When you've finally wrapped up your project, it's time to share it. You can share a single image from your project, part of your project, or the entire project. I want to give you a basic overview of the possibilities and explain each one in more detail in the other movies in this chapter. As a point of clarification, you create your projects using settings that should have matched all or most of your original content. That could be High-Definition, Standard -Definition, DV widescreen and so on. No matter what settings you chose you can output to virtually any format. That's the beauty of working in Premiere Elements.

You create the projects such that you retain all the quality of the original video and then can share it at any quality level or format and you can share it at any time and time and again in any format you choose without having to change any of your project settings or edits. So let's see what kind of output formats Premiere Elements offers. First of all, let's talk about just an image. You could take any screen here that you want, and you know you can click on this little button here to get a Freeze Frame which you can then export and use elsewhere if you want to. When you export it you export it as a BMP file, a bitmap file, but there is another way to export and that is to just pick any frame you want, go to Share and the one option here is Computer and then you can go down and choose Image from this scrolling menu.

When you choose Image your other option instead of bitmap, is JPEG, Joint Picture Expert Group, which is a different kind of image format. So those are your two formats, BMP or JPEG. Let me go back and talk about saving part of the project or all of the project. Right now, the entire project would be saved, that was my choice, but I can change this Work Area bar, this little gray thing here, drag that in and say, let's say I want to save only this first video. As I drag, notice that it snaps the little black line below it, that says it's snapping to this little point.

I would save only this video. If I choose Work Area bar I could save just this video by dragging the Work Area bar over to here and drag the beginning to there, so I could choose to share only this particular video. So you can choose to share the Work Area bar or the entire video. Now let's move along to the various ways that you can share. To get there you go to this Share workspace and there are six generic options, I am going to talk about each one just briefly now and then talk about a couple of groups of them in the upcoming movies.

First of all, you can share something as a Web DVD. This is huge thing, this is brand-new for Premiere Elements 9 and this allows you to create something that looks like a DVD but that you can play online, no physical disc necessary. Down below you can create a Disc, either a DVD disc or a Blu-ray. In the Online section you can choose to export your project to a couple of online sites like photoshop.com or YouTube. Down below you can save it as a Computer file, a file that would work on a computer, just instead of working in a TV set or online it will be typically a file that you'd run on a computer.

Lots of times you save your project in a very high definition format that you can then edit again if you choose to from the finished project version. Down here are the various formats for Mobile Phones and Players and then finally you can export back to Tape. On the Mac side you can't export back to HDV but on the Windows side it can be HDV or DV. So those are the various formats that you can use. And sharing your video is a relatively simple process. I'll explain it in more detail in the upcoming movies.
