How to Render a Movie in Adobe Premiere Pro on a PC


Adobe Premiere Pro is video-editing software that lets you combine video, audio and graphics of all major formats in a project, then export the project with the built-in Adobe Media Encoder. Premiere Pro includes configuration presets to render your project to Flash video, Quicktime, Windows Media, DVD or Blu-Ray and MPEG/AVI files, as well as audio formats like MP3 and graphic formats like GIF, Targa and TIFF. Each preset can be modified to fine-tune the render.

  • Open Premiere Pro. Click "New Project." Enter a name for the project then click "OK."

  • Click the "Sequence Presets" tab and select a preset for a new sequence, which includes the frame size and aspect ratio of your new project. Click the "General" tab to adjust the video and audio specifications of the sequence. Click the "Tracks" tab to adjust the number of audio and video tracks in the timeline. Click "OK."

  • Right-click in the assets panel then select "Import" from the context menu. Click video, audio or graphic elements, then click "Open," or hold the Ctrl key and click multiple files to add at once.

  • Drag and drop assets to the timeline. Video files and graphic files should be dropped in the video tracks, while you should drop audio files in the audio tracks. Adjust the location of the files in the timeline. Click the "Play" button on the Preview monitor to preview your movie.

  • Click "File," then "Export" and select "Media." Choose a format for your movie from the "Format" drop-down menu. Select a quality preset from the "Preset" drop-down menu.

  • Adjust the video settings of your render from the "Video" tab, including the video codec, frame height and width, and frame rate. Adjust the audio settings for your render from the "Audio" tab to set the audio codec and audio format. Click "OK." The Adobe Media Encoder will open.

  • Click the "Output Location" to change the location where your movie will be rendered. Click "Start Queue" to begin rendering. Close Adobe Media Encoder when the render is complete.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you plan to do further editing on the project, you should export the file in the Microsoft Uncompressed AVI format. Uncompressed AVI uses a large amount of disk space, but ensure that your video loses no quality in the render. After you have completed the project and rendered it in the final format, you can delete the uncompressed AVI file.
