Thread: Compressing or otherwise shrinking movies made in Pro?

  1. #1

    Default Compressing or otherwise shrinking movies made in Pro?

    Hello!My companie's been using Premiere since, like, 5.5, but I've personally only just started, and I'm entirely self-taught, and I need to know how I can render movies that aren't so huge! I made a minute-and-a-half-long video today, and it's 300MB! I don't necessarily need too much detail, just if someone could point me in the basic direction of the Premiere menu or section that allows me to mess with compression and such? I can likely make my way from there... thanks so much in advance!

    v5.5 eh? That's before my own personal experience I'm afraid. But inletr versions I would find the Export -> Adobe media Encoder menu option and once in there select a format like WMV which compresses nicely for things like web access.

    Sorry! Let me clarify - we're not STILL using 5.5, we're using Premiere Pro now. I assume compression processes have changed in the interim.... but, yes, I need too know how to make smaller videos in Premiere Pro... maybe compression is not the answer? Maybe I'm not setting the parameters up correctly when I actually go to render the movie?... 300MB is ridiculously huge for a minute and a half.... can anyone help me?
