I have some raw footage that I have compiled in Premiere Pro CS4 and now have been trying to export it out in a SWF format. The sound in Premiere is very good but when I export it it doesn't sound near as good, even though I'm using best quality. I also have at the bottom of the video a flat bar of green with text and that has quite a bit of artifacts. Would someone have a list of settings that you use when exporting to SWF on hand that may help me out?
There is no one setup that works best in all situations. The general recommendation here is to just keep playing with the settings until you find the ones that work best for your media.
Thanks, I've been searching for a tutorial that may help me. Is Premiere Pro able to export a high-quality SWF, or at least one that retains sound quality that is close to the original? Or is it better to maybe export the video out to maybe a DV format and then use a stand-alone SWF encoder software?
Premiere doesn't actually create .swf files. It'll make either .flv or .mp4 files that can be used in Flash to create the final .swf file for upload.
Premiere is fully capable of exporting out excellent picture and sound to either format.
