Adobe Premiere Pro exports to only a few formats directly. Some of these formats are the AAF, or advanced authoring format, and XML for Final Cut Pro. But Adobe Premiere does not export directly to most common video file types. To export your project as one of those types, the program uses the Adobe Media Encoder, which comes with the Creative Suite package. This encoder will convert your project to an MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 file.
Open your project using Premiere Pro.
Press the "control" and "M" keys to launch the Media Encoder. Its "Export Settings" window will open.
Click the down arrow next to the "Format:" option.
Select "MPEG-2" or "MPEG-4." For higher quality output, select "MPEG2 Blu-ray."
Click the "Export" button.
Tips & Warnings
- The encoder offers many other options when you export your file, including editing the frame size or frame rate, changing the audio encoder or adding filters. You can also choose preset settings that gear your exported MPEG file to several hosting services' video standards.
