Premiere: Exporting Projects
Version: Adobe Premiere Pro 2020. Be aware that different versions of Premiere will vary in appearance and functionality. Full Guide: View/Download
Projects need to be exported in order to consolidate edits and create a single video file that can be played outside of Premiere. If a project has multiple sequences, make sure all desired clips are put into one sequence prior to exporting.
To export a project into a video file:
- Make sure the Timeline Window is selected and the correct sequence is opened.
- Navigate to File > Export > Media... A new window named Export Settings will appear. This window has many options, the most important being:
- Format: the type of file to be produced. H.264 is a standard, recommended format.
- Preset: settings for the selected file format. Leave this as “Match Source” to avoid issues.
- Output name: click this to name the file and choose a storage location.
When done, a video file that can be uploaded to YouTube or Google Drive will be created on the computer.
