In versions earlier than 10, you can export 1080p although it is not an Adobe official route. It really does work. So, please check out
Share/Personal Computer or Computer (depending on which version you have)/MPEG/and the preset of HD720p and set the settings under the Advanced Button of that preset for:
Example: Premiere Elements 8.0/8.0.1 (similar in other versions)
Video Tab with its MainConcept MPEG Video Codec
NTSC or PAL (does not have the same significance as for SD, more relevant to the frame rate)
Frame Width = 1920 pixels
Frame Height = 1080 pixels
Frame Rate = .as appropriate for NTSC or PAL
Pixel Aspect Ratio = Square Pixels (1.000)
Profile = Main
Level = High
That will give you your 1080p as MPEG2.mpg.
You may have to set Level = High and unchain the Frame Width and Height before typing in 1920 and 1080.
Just something for you to consider.
Yes, you could most certainly do that in PRE10. You can also choose between 29.97fps or 25fps or 25fps while exporting.
You can find these presets in share tab > Computer > MPEG > in presets drop down.
Also, if you want it to be AVCHD export, you can find them in Share Tab > Computer > AVCHD : you have 1440x1080p 24fps, 1920x1080p 24fps, in different formats m2t as well as mp4.
But, above all, it depends on what you're exporting 1080p for!
Is it for viewing on a DVD or BluRay, for using in another project, for viewing online, for porting to a device like an iPad or iPod, for sending to a dedicated disc authoring program?
As you can see, there are many types of 1080p video using any of a number of codecs and quality levels. Without knowing what you plan to do with it, there's no way to advise you which output option is best for you.
