    Please Help

      Please forgive my ignorance as I am new to PE. I created a movie with HD video and still pictures. I know would like to Share it. I would like to be able to view it on my computer and media player. When I goto the Share tab and then click Computer (Export files for viewing on computers) I don't know which setting to choose. Should I pick MPEG,AVCHD, or something else. Then once I pick one of these what Preset do I choose from many of the ones on the drop down.

       

      I have spent hours trying to find documets that describes the best setting for my application.

      Please let me know if you need anymore additional information.

       

      Thank you in advance.

          It depends on what you are ultimately planning to do with your video.

           

          Do you plan to share it online? But it on YouTube or Vimeo? Add it to a web site?

           

          Output it to DVD or BluRay disc?

           

          Use the output video in another video project?

           

          Share it as a podcast?

           

          Output it for download to a portable device, like an iPod or iPad?

           

          Each has its own unique tech needs. There is no one-size-fits-all solution.

            Thanks for the response Steve....

             

            I would like to view the completed movie on my computer and home theater (I have a Western Digital media player) and I would also like the option to make a High Definition DVD so I can share with others.

             

            Thanks,  Steve

              By a hi-def DVD, you mean a BluRay disc, of course. There's no such thing as a hi-def DVD.

               

              As for your Western Digital Media Player, what format and resolution of video does the device's manual recommend you provide it for playback?
