On the top right, go to 'Publish + Share' > Computer > Select AVI from the list > Choose your settings and click on Save.
The above mentioned steps are for Premiere Elements 12 and 13. (Note really sure about Premiere Elements 11 havent used that)
We can give you specific information if you let us know the version of Premiere Elements that you are using and the computer operating system
on which it is running.
As an example...Premiere Elements 13 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit in a program set up for NTSC....
The .prel file extension is being used as the project file from which you export a file with the .avi file extension.
Remember .avi is just a file extension which can wrap a variety of different video and audio compressions. But, here
is the general path for this example for an export of DV.AVI Standard 4:3.
In the opened project after your import/edit, go to Publish+Share/Computer/AVI and set Presets = to what you need.
In this case, select DV NTSC Standard. There are other choices in a drop down list for Presets. And, if you click on
the Advanced Button in that area, you can customize the Advanced Button/Video Tab and Audio Tab settings.
But be on guard...the AVI choice is at the bottom of the list. You will not see that choice until you scroll down the list
using the thin scroll bar to the right of the choices.
Please review and consider. Any questions or need clarification, please let us know. The answers will be in the details.
Looking forward to your reply.
