This video explores how to batch export multiple files (with multiple settings) using the Queue function in Premiere Pro, along with Adobe Media Encoder. You look at how to set and modify settings and set multiple destinations to perform the batch export.
- [Instructor] If you want to export multiple files, or the same file with multiple formats, you're going to use the queue command within the Premiere Pro export settings. So I've got two sequences here and I want to export both of them in different ways. I've got my promo, and I have an in and an out point marked in the first part of the promo and I need to export that as a screener for my client. And then I also need to export the entire soundtrack of my promo. And then I also want to export my entire montage as a high res screener.
So let's go through this. I've got my in and out point marked, and so I'm just going to make sure the timeline is selected and press Command + M, or Control + M on a PC to open up my export settings window. And down here under source range I have sequence in to out, which is what I do want selected. And then for formats, I think just using the preset that we created in the previous movie is fine, so I'll do H264, this was the preset that we created the YouTube 720 Publish. If you did not create that preset in the previous movie, feel free to just choose anything.
All right, so I'm okay with all of these settings, I'm going to press queue. And then Media Encoder opens and we should have that added to the queue in just a moment here. There it is, okay. And you can see the name here, and then the format and the preset and where it's going and then it's status, all right? So let's add a few more to the queue and then I'll show you how to edit this. So I'll go back to Premiere, and then this time we'll go ahead and export the soundtrack. So again I'll select my timeline and press Command + M.
And I'm going to change the source range to entire sequence, and then I'm going to change my format to a wave file. And I'll queue that up, and it gets added and you can see the various settings here. And then we'll go back into Premiere and do a different sequence. Here's our montage, and let's have that go out as our high res screener. So I'll do Command + M, all right, and then for format let's go ahead and choose match source high bit rate.
Then we'll queue that up. All right, so we have three items. These two are from the same exact sequence but we're exporting very different things. And this is from a different sequence. And you can have three, you can have 30, you can have a hundred or more items queued up here in Adobe Media Encoder, and the best part is is that that's running in the background and you can back into Premiere and work away. When you do have the queue running you might notice a lag in performance because it is working so hard, but you can still edit in Premiere no problem.
All right, so if you wanted to choose another format you can select something from this dropdown menu. I noticed that the presets have dropdown menus as well, so if you wanted to tweak that, that's fine. If you wanted to change something more, then you just simply click on the preset and it opens the export settings window again and you can come in here and dial in very specific changes, okay? I'm not going to change anything right now, so I'll cancel. And then here is where you would change your output file. And I can do this all at once, so if I, you know, select all of them and then click on output file and say, you know what, instead of the desktop I want it to go inside of a particular folder, and I'll choose that.
And notice that now it's changed the destination for everything that I had selected. So I'll go ahead and make just one small change, I'm going to click on my wave file, and let's just change that to an AIFF. And we'll say okay, and you can see that that's been adjusted. All right, so I'm ready to run my queue, so I'm going to click on start queue. And here is the progress of each of these files, and so that's going to be going in the background. And, again, I can come over to Premiere and keep working no problem at all.
But we'll go back over to Media Encoder and see the progress of each of these files. And we'll wait for those to be done and we'll check them out. All right, the queue is all done, so let's go ahead and take a look at those files. I'll go to my exercise files folder which is where I sent them. All right, and so let's see, this one here is the intro, so the very first part of the promo. Mmmkay, very good. And then we have the audio file here. Okay, so we'll take a listen to that.
- [Announcer] Craftsmanship, quality, and community spirit, that underlies everything that we do. - [Instructor] All right. And then here is my high quality screener of the montage. All right, very good. So as you can see, we were able to very easily get exactly what we wanted between two different sequences and three different settings using Adobe Media Encoder and the queue command within Adobe Premiere Pro.
