    Premiere basics - export function isn't available

      I'm trying to do something that I thought would be easy and basic - open a movie, edit to select a small clip, and save that clip in a format that can be loaded on an iPod or written to a DVD so that the clip can be played later on another computer (loaded from the iPod or DVD).

      In the help files, Adobe writes:

      Export to iPods, cell phones, PSPs and other mobile devices

      You can export a sequence or portion of a sequence into a file formatted for use on Apple iPods, 3GPP cell phones, Sony PSPs or other mobile devices. In Export Settings, simply select an H.264 format preset made for the target device. For a video on exporting video for various media and devices, see www.adobe.com/go/vid0264

      Do either of the following:
      To export a sequence, select the sequence in the Timeline panel or Program Monitor.
      To export a clip, select the clip in the Source Monitor or Project panel.
      To specify a range of frames to export, do either of the following:
      In a sequence, set the work area.
      In a clip, set an In point and Out point.
      Choose File > Export > Adobe Media Encoder.

      However, the Adobe Media Encoder option is grayed out and I can't select it.

      Can someone point me to a VERY basic tutorial on how to open a movie, select a small section, and save it?
