Output to Web
To convert your video into a Quicktime movie that can be played on the web, choose File > Export Timeline > Movie.
Choose a location to save your file to.
Click the Settings button and choose the following in the General category:
- File Type: QuickTime
- Range: Entire Project
- Make sure Export Video and Export Audio are checked.
Choose the following in the Video category:
- Compressor: Sorenson Video
- Frame size: 320h x 240v
- Frame Rate: 15
- Quality: High (If you file is huge, this would be the place to start if you need to lower the file size.)
Close the Settings window, give your movie a name and hit Save.
Exporting can be a lengthy process, especially for long clips, so you might choose to start this going right before a break or at the end of the night.
Premiere will open the new clip and you can see it right away in Premiere.
Compressing a movie to play smoothly on the web is an artform in itself and beyond the scope of this tutorial. But if your video is too slow on the web, try making a smaller file by lowering some of the variables mentioned above.
