- Hi, I'm Luisa Winters. Welcome to Premiere Pro Guru: Compression. At the end of the edit all of us must deliver our product somehow. Whether it's for the Web or broadcast, our video must be compressed for delivery. How we do this compression will affect the quality of the product that we deliver. So, based on just this, compression becomes a huge part of what we need to do in our workflow. In addition to that, sometimes we use compression for other tasks, such as making our video files more manageable so that we can edit using a laptop.
Or maybe we need to compress our videos so that our system can play back the clips without effort. Whatever your reason for compressing, if you're using Premiere Pro you'll need to go through some specific settings. In this title we will go through compression essentials, so that we can better understand what the compression settings are. Then we go through those settings and then we will go through the Adobe Media Encoder, which you obviously have if you have Premiere Pro. Finally, we will talk about some troubleshooting, how to avoid some pitfalls, and how to fix others.
There are many settings and there are many things to take into consideration when compressing. And soon you'll be mastering all of them to find your own best way to save your work.
