Premier Help! Export stuff...

Postby Cyco_Beaver » Thu Oct 05, 2006 10:40 pm

Hey, i know I sound like an idiot, by I need some help with premeir. I have made a nice long AMV, the file can do MPEG2 and AVI and stuff, but I can't make them small enough because my WMV thingy crapped out. Is there a simple way though Premier to make a file smaller then 500 MBs? Can I use the DIVX file format? Help me...please? (don't kill me)

you can export in whatever format you want.
i personally export in lagarith, then put it in virtualdub and compress to xvid, compress audio with lame, and mask crappy frames

Do this:

Export your video in a lossless form, such as lagarith, or Huffyuv. It will probably be something like 4 gig. Use Virtualdub to filter and compress your video till you're happy with the way it looks vs file size.

Read this guide: http://www.animemusicvideos.org/guides/avtech/
Specifically the parts about how to compress.
