Lesson 12. Virtual Clips > Exporting the movie

Exporting the movie

Now that you've finished your editing, it's time to generate a movie file. You'll export just the last virtual clip you created, Masked Background, and the clips above it.

Scroll across the Timeline so that Masked Background is visible.

To quickly resize the work area bar to cover Masked Background and the clips above it in the Timeline, hold down the Alt key (Windows) or Option key (Mac OS) and click between the title bar and the ruler, above Masked Background.

Choose File > Export Timeline > Movie.

In the Export Movie dialog box, click Settings and choose your settings as necessary.

Make sure that QuickTime is selected for the File Type and Work Area is selected for the Range.

Also make sure that Export Video and Open When Finished are selected. Then deselect Export Audio. The default values for other settings, including those for compression, are fine for this project.

Click OK to close the Export Movie Settings dialog box.

In the Export Movie dialog box, specify the 12Lesson folder for the location, and type Windsurf.mov for the name of the movie. Click Save (Windows) or OK (Mac OS).

Premiere starts making the movie, displaying a status bar that provides an estimate for the amount of time it will take.

When the movie is complete, it is opened in a separate window.

Click the Play button to play the movie.

Congratulations! You just completed a complicated lesson and gained more experience with some of the powerful features of Premiere. Refer to any of the lessons in this book at any time, especially if there is a process with which you want more practice.
