Sometimes, you only want to export portions of video. Maybe you just want to do like a test of the compression method that you're going to be using, as we talked about in the last movie, or maybe you want to send a sample to somebody of certain effects or how things are working out. What you can do is grab this bar here that is above the Timeline panel, or at the top of the Timeline panel. You can grab the handle here, and drag this to the left to shrink what is called the Work Area. We can actually grab this middle area and move it around, or whatever. So let's say I wanted to export just this one StandingAround clip.
I can move the Work Area bar over so that the end of it is lined up with the end of this clip, and click and drag to beginning so the beginning is lined up with just this clip. Now we can go to File > Export > Media. It'll launch the Export Settings dialog box, as before. But now if come down here to our little Timeline, we can see that's been cropped a little bit, and our Source Range is set to Work Area. So if we wanted to, we can just simply choose Entire Sequence from here. But if we choose Work Area, then we can manually go in and just export just this one section. If we want to change it here in the Export Settings dialog box, we can do that, too.
So if we decide to add more to this, we can drag. Now we're getting a live update in that window there of where this is. I can change at the right- hand side here, that area. So now we only export this particular section. You can also, almost, set in points and out points. Let's say I want this to be end of the Work Area that I'm going to Export. I can click this little Out Point triangle here, and that will force that point, where my Current Time Indicator is here, to be the Out Point. If you're new to Premiere, this might not be that important of a feature, but as you start working in production environment, you're going to want to do little test sample renders and pass them off to clients, or for your own benefit maybe just like a little rough cut, or a rendering of just a scene of a certain like editing sequence.
So you're going to want to be able to edit little pieces without rendering an hour, or two hours worth of footage.
