Does anyone have a better workflow
My God, yes. Just do the job once and export WMVs the first time.
(By the way, do you actually need the files in WMV format, or just something that Windows Media Player can handle?)
Thanks Jim, I can't export to WMV out of Premiere or Media Encoder. I use Episode to make my WMV files, and since Episode doesn't take MPEG in from Premiere (sigh)
I have to first make them in Quicktimes..
But yes! Anything Windows Media Player can handle... should I just go with the 5GB MPG files? No way for me to test, I'm on a Mac and these are playing on a PC
thanks for your help
Ok so I just read the Macs CANNOT export to WMV files thru Premiere or Encoder, even with the Flip4Mac plugin.
I need to test the playback compatibility more, but wondering if anything straight out of Encoder (Mac) will play in Windows Media Player.
Just a shot in the dark, but how about H.264? That works in Windows Media Player. Just use a YouTube or Vimeo preset.

Ah, you're on a Mac.
WMP can handle a lot of formats. H.264 is one of them. The YT preset should be fine.
