Convergence: Exporting for Multimedia and the Internet

Exporting a movie as a digital (computer) file for multimedia or the Internet is easy. The hardest part is understanding all the different types of variables that come into play when you're creating digital files and trying to decide which type of file is the best format for your needs. In general, there are two main areas to be concerned with: the format type and the data rate. The format type determines whether your end users can see the clip (do they have the right drivers or player to open and play the medium?). The other aspect, data rate, needs to be considered more for Internet use than CD-ROM development. Data rate is the amount of information that is passed per second. If your connection speed is too slow, your video will either be choppy (skipping frames) or extremely slow-moving (more like a slide show than a video) or will take extremely long to download.

One area where Premiere has really improved its capabilities is in its exporting options. Premiere utilizes the proper plug-in support engines to output your media in the desired format. You can choose between the Save for Web, Advanced Windows Media, and Advanced RealMedia export options, among others.
