Learn how Destination Publishing with Media Encoder allows you to render and upload content in a single action, including simultaneous uploads to YouTube, Vimeo, Creative Cloud, and FTP sites.
With Adobe Media Encoder you can publish your Adobe Premiere Pro project directly to Twitter — that is, transcoding and uploading in one step.
Let me show you how it works.
Here I am in Premiere Pro with a video that I want to share with my followers on Twitter. To export it, I choose File > Export > Media…
Now I’m presented with the Export Settings dialog box.
To make optimal use of the background rendering features of Adobe Media Encoder, I will send this video to Media Encoder by clicking on this Queue button.
This launches Adobe Media Encoder and places the sequence in the encoding Queue. Now I will need to tell Media Encoder to encode and post my video on Twitter.
Here on the left side are all my presets. I can quickly find the Twitter preset by typing in “Twitter” in the search box.
I drag this preset on the video.
To tell Media Encoder the details of my Twitter account, I click on the preset name in the Queue. This opens the Export Settings dialog box. This dialog box is very similar to the one in Premiere Pro.
If you’re interested, you could go to the Effects tab, where you can add an image overlay, like a logo to watermark your video, or overlay the name or timecode. But chances are you just want to post your video as-is, so you can ignore this tab.
The properties in the other tabs are filled in by the Twitter preset, so you don’t need to change anything there.
What I do want to do is go to the Publish tab and check Twitter.
Since this is the first time I’m doing this, I need to get authorisation from Twitter for Media Encoder to post the video on my Twitter account. I do this by clicking on this Log in button.
This will open the authorisation window where I enter my credentials. This means I’m allowing Adobe Media Encoder to post videos on my Twitter account.
Back in Media Encoder, I can add the status text. Note that the maximum video length for Twitter is 30 seconds, and that the status message is limited to110 characters.
When all is set, click OK to close the Export settings dialog box.
Now I can hit the green Start Queue button and Media Encoder gets to work.
The encoding has finished and Media Encoder is now uploading the video to my Twitter account.
When the upload is done, you can click on the link that will get you straight to the post on Twitter. Note that Twitter might need a few minutes to get the video ready. After this, Twitter makes the video available to be retweeted and liked by my followers on Twitter.
And that’s how easy it is to publish your video directly to Twitter.
