Exporting in Premiere Pro

Here are some quick tips to save time when exporting your video file to multiple, different formats from Premiere Pro. Start first with a completed master file and then export to other formats from that primary file. To create the master file, export using Quick Time as the format and use the Apple ProRess 422 as the preset:

Add your movie to the export queue.  That will open up Media Encoder.

Highlight your Master File video and click on Add Output to export the same video to different formats.  Every time you click on Add Output, you can choose another export format.

For DVDs, choose the MPEG 2-DVD  codec. Choose constant bit rate instead of variable bit rate for a faster encode.

DIY greenscreen

GSMEStudio 300 has green screen technology for building convincing video composites (see this article). Thinking of making your own green screen at home? It’s not too difficult! Here are a few quick ideas:

  • Paint a wall, foam core, or the back of vinyl flooring using a chroma-key green paint.  Your local hardware store may be able to match the color, too.
  • Buy rolled green paper from art supply stores and tape it to the wall
  • Create a backdrop using green cloth and hang from the ceiling using rope or wire that you can run through the tube and loop around curtain hangers
  • Buy a portable green screen that is green on one side and blue on the other (we have this screen in Studio 300. Visit us to check it out).
