As the title says - must I create a new preset every single time I make any minor tweaks to export ("publish+share") settings? Say that I'm exporting numerous different videos, many with different picture sizes, and I just want to alter those parameters when I go to export each individual video. I have to save EVERY single itteration of settings that I make? I can't just make my settings, export, and be done with it (as in Premiere Pro; well, older versions at least)? Any way to get around it?
There is no "Quick Save" feature in the share section such as in Premiere Elements 8.0/8.0.1, but you can create customized presets under the Advanced Button/VIdeo and Audio Tabs of the preset /Export Settings dialog and save those settings so that they appear as a choice in the drop down list under Presets: in many of the export choices. Have you seen that feature?
Please let us know if I have targeted you question or, if I should post screenshots to demo.
Thanks for the response, ATR.
But I was moreso referring to the fact that we are required to save any variety of settings that we make to the export settings as a new preset. It seems impossible to make a single adjustment to any of the settings without being required to save the new settings as a new preset. This is undesired behavior if, like me, you find yourself exporting a variety of different videos that carry a variety of different picture sizes, pixel sizes, etc.
Unless someone knows of some kind of work-around... I'd like to be able to simply type in the new values and go on to exporting, without the need to save my settings as a new preset every time.
But isn't the whole point to being able to save your customized output as a new preset to save you having to create a customized output each time?
I've created a few Publish & Share output presets -- and I like the fact that I only need to do it once. Then the preset is always there for me.
Don't get me wrong, I totally understand and value the usefulness of presets. But there are also plenty of times where I just know I'm entering in settings that I am not very likely to use again, and would rather just type in the settings and export without having to save one preset after another.
But it would appear I'm stuck doing so, with the program set up as it is. I'll just have to go through and delete some less common presets after the fact.
