    PE7 export / save to h.264?

    paulgoelz Level 1
      How the heck do you do this? Can you? I see that if you burn to BluRay it is in h.264 format, but PE7 won't burn BluRay to a folder, just to a disk. I didn't see any h.264 options under Share or Export.

      And while we're at it, what is the different between "Export" and "Share"? I hate these silly euphemisms. I wish they would go back to using terms that were more descriptive of the actual function being performed.

          There are a number of ways to do this, depending on what type of MP4 you're trying to make. Is it for an iPod or other Apple device? Look under Share/Devices. Many other options are under File/Export/Movie.

          I do a full discussion of all of these export and share options in this month's Steve's Tips articles, by the way, on the products page at http://www.muvipix.com. The basic Share outputs is a free article; the advanced Export outputs are in my members-only sequel article.

            Yes I don't like "share" either. It conjures up images of someone unburdening themselves of mental problems. ("Let me share my experiences with you". "Thanks for sharing with me".) Adobe is not the only one, however. With Serif Panorama Plus, you click on the Share tab in order to "export" the stitched image.

            I'm not all that enraptured with "export" either. What is wrong with "output"? There was a time when "export" was only used for foreign (non-native) output formats.
