Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting and compressing for different formats and platforms, part of Video Post Production for Low-Budget Films.
- So, we are done editing and grading our film…and now we're ready to deliver the final version.…There is only one step left: exporting the master files.…All current NLEs offer multiple ways, formats,…and quality levels for exporting our projects.…I do love the flexibility that Adobe Premiere Pro…and its companion application, Adobe Media Encoder,…offer in this regard.…Both apps offer built-in presets,…for Vimeo, YouTube, and other sites,…and they work very well.…
I use these presets or shortcuts as starting points…because I like to manually tweak each setting…to get in full control of the final deliverable.…Now, if you have been working with proxies…or editing in low-res formats,…you should reconnect the high resolution footage now…before the final export.…If, on the other hand, you have been working on…highly-compressed codecs like H.264,…it is advisable to export the masters…in a less compressed codec like ProRes 422.…
In our case, we're only exporting for web,…but if you're also exporting for broadcast,…you might need to include additional elements…
