Adobe Premiere Pro lets you easily create videos that can be exported to the Web or mobile devices.
Click on the sequence and select File > Export > Media to export your project.
In Export mode, choose one or more destinations for your uploaded file (YouTube, Twitter, etc.). You can search for destination-specific presets from the Preset Manager by choosing More presets from the Preset menu, or customize your export settings by selecting a file format, frame size, and bit rate for faster upload time and better playback quality
Here are a few tips to help you choose the most optimal settings.
Tips for creating video for the Web
Follow these guidelines to deliver the best quality video for broadcast over the Web.
Know your audience data rate
When you deliver video over the Internet, produce files at lower data rates. Users with fast Internet connections can view the files with little or no delay for loading, but dial‑up users must wait for files to download. Make the clips short to keep the download times within acceptable limits for dial‑up users.
Select the proper frame rate
Frame rate indicates frames per second (fps). If you have a higher data rate clip, a lower frame rate can improve playback through limited bandwidth. For example, if you compress a clip with little motion, cutting the frame rate in half can save you only 20% of the data rate. However, if you compress high-motion video, reducing the frame rate has a much greater effect on the data rate.
Because video looks much better at native frame rates, leave the frame rate high if your delivery channels and playback platforms allow. For web delivery, get this detail from your hosting service. For mobile devices, use the device-specific encoding presets and the device emulator available through Adobe Media Encoder in Premiere Pro. If reducing the frame rate, the best results come from dividing the frame rate by whole numbers.
Select a frame size that fits your data rate and frame aspect ratio
At a given data rate (connection speed), increasing the frame size decreases video quality. When you select the frame size for your encoding settings, consider frame rate, source material, and personal preferences. To prevent pillarboxing, choose a frame size of the same aspect ratio as the frame aspect ratio of your source footage. For example, pillarboxing results when you encode NTSC footage to a PAL frame size.
Cover progressive download times
Learn how long it takes to download enough of your video so that it can play to the end without pausing to finish downloading. While the first part of your video clip downloads, you can display other content that disguises the download. For short clips, use the following formula: Pause = download time - play time + 10% of play time. For example, if your clip is 30 seconds long and it takes 1 minute to download, give your clip a 33‑second buffer. The applied formula is 60 seconds - 30 seconds + 3 seconds = 33 seconds.
Remove noise and interlacing
For the best encoding, remove noise and interlacing.
The higher the quality of the original, the better the final result. Frame rates and sizes of Internet video are smaller than frame rates and sizes of television video. However, computer monitors typically have color fidelity, saturation, sharpness, and resolution at least as good as high-definition televisions. Even with a small window, image quality can be as important for digital video as for HDTV. Artifacts and noise are at least as obvious on a computer screen as on a television screen.
Follow the same guidelines for audio
The same considerations apply to audio production as to video production. To achieve good audio compression, begin with clean audio. If your project contains audio from a CD, transfer the audio files directly from the CD to your hard disk. Do not record the sound through the analog input of your sound card. The sound card introduces an unnecessary digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital conversion that can create noise in your source audio. Direct digital transfer tools are available for Windows and Macintosh® platforms. To record from an analog source, use the highest-quality sound card available.
Tips for creating video for mobile devices
You can export a sequence for use on a variety of mobile devices.
Use these tips when shooting content for mobile devices:
Tight shots are better. Try to keep the subject separated from the background; the colors and values between background and subject should not be too similar.
Be aware of lighting. Poor lighting is a greater problem with mobile devices and can reduce visibility on small screens. Shoot and adjust with this limitation in mind.
Avoid excessive panning or rolling.
Use the following tips when editing video with Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects:
- Set the frame rate for the output movie according to output device or output type. For example, a commercial in After Effects might be rendered at 15 frames per second (fps) for distribution on mobile devices, but at 29.97 fps for broadcast television in the USA. In general, use a lower frame rate. A frame rate of 22 fps is a good compromise for reducing file size without losing quality
- Make the movie as small as possible and remove any extraneous content, especially empty frames. Many actions can be done pre-encoding to limit file size. Some of them apply to shooting techniques, while others (for instance, using motion-stabilization tools in After Effects or applying a noise-reduction or blur effect) are post-production tasks that facilitate the compression portion of the encoder.
For tips on making movies smaller, see the online Help for After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro.
Match the color palette to the correct mobile devices. Mobile devices, in general, have a limited color range. Previewing in Device Central can help determine if the colors used are optimal for an individual device or range of devices.
Adjust clips. Grayscale view is helpful to compare values.
