I've just started using Adobe Premiere Pro V2. What I need to do is split a video in different parts. I've got a long video (wmv format) which I import into a new project. Then I cut almost the whole video except for 30 secs of video. Now I'd like to save this small part of the original video as a new wmv file.
Currently I do this by exporting the video to the adobe media encoder. Here I select 'WM9 NTSC 1024 K Download' profile and then I encode my new wmv file. However the quality is significantly lower than the source file.
I've been experimenting with some options like onepass/twopass encoding, image quality, max bitrate and so on. However I can't seem to get it right. Is there a way to make smaller clips of my source video without losing significant quality??
Is there a better way then reencoding using the media encoder or do I need to alter the settings in the media encoder?
