    Exporting an .avi file as is in the project

    trepiD27

      I've added music to a .avi video file which I recorded on my computer using MSI AfterBurner.I've adjusted the audio and I'm happy with the way it sounds now.My question is how do I use the Publish and share options so that the file remains in the .avi file format, resolution etc i.e basically I want the output to look exactly as it does in playback.

       

      This is whatt I have on my screen right now:http://gyazo.com/cd6432999e100d1e376b52a11ca09f33

       

      And these are the settings I used to capture the video:It is 16:9 (853x480) resolution, 22FPS:http://gyazo.com/0a8937453732b4f48656c977bd823c48

          Well, the Frame Size and the Frame Rate (FPS) are non-video standard, so your choices will be very limited.

           

          1. Is MSI AfterBurner a video screen-capture program?
          2. If so, that might explain the Frame Size, but why that 22 FPS?
          3. What is the PAR (Pixel Aspect Ratio) of the footage from MSI AfterBurner? I see that it shows as 16:9 Aspect Ratio, but I wonder about the shape/size of the actual pixels.

           

          Good luck,

            Based on the MSI video properties that you present, it would appear that you imported in Premiere Elements 11 on some version of Windows

            MotionJPEG.avi (720 x 480 16:9) with a frame rate of 22 progressive frames per second. Clearly your screenshot show 480p. If that is 480p 16:9, then the square pixels (1.0) would give you 854 x 480 pixels.

             

            What did you or the program set as the project preset for this project whose Expert workspace you presented in screenshot.

            If you do not know, then please tell us what is listed under Edit Menu/Project Settings/General for Editing Mode, Timebase, Frame Size, and Pixel Aspect Ratio (even if the fields appear to be grayed out).

             

            I would probably have gone with the manual set of NTSC DV Widescreen, just to get the appropriate space in Edit area monitor for editing, ignoring frame rate if there is not going to be a frame by frame by frame edit of the Timeline content.

             

            1. From the point of view of Video codec: You are not going to get a MotionJPEG.avi file from Premiere Elements (any version). However, I can tell you how to get a MotionJPEG.mov file exported from your Timeline.

             

            2. There is no 22 frames per second (interlaced or progressive) in Premiere Elements (any version). Probably 24 frames per second would be the closest if there had to be a frame rate match between import and export.

             

            You wrote of your goal

            basically I want the output to look exactly as it does in playback.

            There are two interpretations of that...

            a. exact video properties...import vs export

            b. same video quality at playback

            The above a and b are not necessarily the same.

             

            My first pass at this with "a"

            Publish+Share

            Computer

            Microsoft AVI

            and, under the Advanced Button/Video Tab,

             

            For .avi file

             

            Video Codec = Microsoft Video 1 or downloaded Lagarith Lossless or None (probably huge file)

            Click on the box to the right of Width and Height to remove the chain link there.

            Width = 854

            Height = 480

            Frame Rate = 24

            Field Type = Progressive

            Aspect = Square Pixels (1.0)

             

            or

             

            For .mov file

             

            Publish+Share

            Computer

            QuickTIme

            with preset = NTSC DV 16:9

            and, under the Advanced Button/Video Tab,

             

            Video Codec = MotionJPEG A or B probably would do better with H.264

            Click on the box to the right of Width and Height to remove the chain there

            Width = 854

            Height = 480

            Frame Rate = 24

            Field Type = Progressive

            Aspect = Square Pixels (1.0)

             

            Audio Tab...left for now on these. More on that later if necessary.

             

            Please review and consider. We can fine tune as needed.

             

            Thanks.
