    Converting to MPEG2 ( min)?

    town administrator

      Our cable TV server requires an MPEG2 ( minimum)(*.nmg extension).  Can Premiere Elements convert the videos I edit in it to that format?

          Look at the SHARE links at The Elements Tutorial Links Page http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1275830


          I'm not sure about that specific extension, so click the links and read

            Premiere Elements does include in its choice of exports export with the MPEG2 video compression. I am not sure what that 4.0.036 minimum is all about, and there is no .nmg file extension. For the Premiere Elements MPEG export, the file extension can be .m2t or .mpg.


            A quick Google search suggest that .nmg is an unknown or rare file extension.



            As for MPEG2 ( min), the closest that I can come to the MPEG2 part of that is a "Moyea SWF to MPEG Converter


            The further information that we need


            1. What version of Premiere Elements do you have and on what computer operating system is it running?


            2. What are the properties of the videos that you need to edit in a video editor and what type of export are you looking for after the edit? Also, please refer to "3" below.


            3. Could you get more information on the requirements of your cable TV server? What is the required video compression, audio compression, frame size, frame rate, interlaced or progressive, file extension, and pixel aspect ratio?


            Please do not hesitate to ask if you have questions and need clarification on anything written.


            Thank you.




            Sounds like you are hunting for a converter to convert your source files to MPEG2?

              Elements Premiere 12

              Windows 7 operating system

              Videos could run a couple of hours long.

              Unsure on the technical questions

                Thanks for the reply.


                We would need some or all of the technical information to get a handle on the situation.


                If you have Premiere Elements 12 on Windows 7 64 bit computer, you could try importing your media.

                (Add Media/Files and Folders/Project Assets). Drag your video to the Expert workspace Timeline and let the program set the project settings for you. If it does it right, it will base the project settings on the properties of your video file. If it does it incorrectly, then we would have to set the project settings manually before the video import. But, let us not worry about that for now.


                If you get that far, then take a look at the Publish+Share/Computer/MPEG area and its choices of presets.


                Stop there and let us know what is happening.


                The above is just a rough, very rough mini test run. The time will come when we need the technical details to get a product that you can use.


                Please view and then let us know the outcome.
