Chapter 15. Creating Output

Chapter 15. Creating Output

At the beginning of the editing process, you asked yourself, "What is my final output goal?" Now it's time to deliver.

Depending on your needs, you can output your program to videotape, as a digital file, or both. If your computer has a video capture card, or a FireWire or iLink, you can output the program directly from the timeline to a video camera or video tape recorder. Alternatively, you may want to create a stand-alone movie file to burn to a CD-ROM, or present via the Web.

On the other hand, the edited Premiere program may not represent your completed work. An exported movie may serve as source material for other programs—such as a Power Point presentation, After Effects composition, or even another Premiere proj ect. If you are using Premiere as an offline editing tool, you can export an edit decision list (EDL) for use with a traditional online editing suite.

It can be difficult to master every aspect of the export process. The number of options can be daunting, and the minutiae of issues such as compression and video standards can be difficult to grasp—or, at very least, boring. Luckily, recent developments have made export relatively simple. If you're working in an all-DV editing environment, it couldn't get much easier. Unlike using a capture card, the process doesn't require you to install hardware or software, or to familiarize yourself with hardware-specific settings. If exporting to Web formats is your goal, the Media Cleaner and Real Media plug-ins provide simple presets optimized for your target format, whether it's a CD-ROM, streaming media, or MP3.
