Exporting Your Video

It's not possible to have explicit exporting settings detailed for every single video editing application on the market, but we have some of the more common ones listed below. If you don't use one of these, it still might be useful to read over a few of them to get a general feel for what you need to do. In general, here are some things you need to keep in mind:

1) Keep your export settings as similar to the project settings as possible.

2) Don't try to compress a distribution copy of your amv from your editing program! You should export only a LOSSLESS, full quality version of your video. This means you should either use the Huffyuv codec, or export uncompressed. You should also export your audio as a seperate wav file, if possible. Compressing your AMV is a seperate step that will be covered very soon in later pages of this guide.

Those two steps are really the only major things that you need to watch out for. Now, here are some exporting guides for a few specific programs:

Adobe Premiere 5.x and 6.x
Adobe Premiere Pro
Vegas Video
Windows Movie Maker 2
Ulead Movie Studio Pro 7
