In AME, which uses very similar settings.
Can you be more specific? I can't alter the width, height of the video and the bitrate is nowhere to be found.
Can you be more specific as to what export settings you are using?
When you choose file-export-media ( inside of Premiere) the Export Settings window starts up.
After you choose the format and the size then the Media Encoder will start.
It sounds like your opening up the Media Encoder before you send the file to it. ( Just guessing )
Choose the export settings from one of the presets to whatever format you want: ( inside of Premiere CS4 )
New with CS4 you can send out video to be rendered to the media encoder and still work on your project.
You cant change the size once you send it out to be rendered:
Are you getting these screens when you export ?
Hope this images come up. I linked from the web.
I think I know what you mean, it too me forever to find. If your in AME. And you can see the summary of the export settings, if you look at the end of the line where it has check boxesFor "Export Video, Export Audio and Open in Device Central" at the end is a circle with two arrows pointing down. Click on that and all your settings open up so that you can customize all the settings for that export.
I've looked in export, media before I launched AME I got those screens when I export but I still can't EDIT the bitrate for my clip. When I do start queue, the Bitrate gives a message like: "no summary available"
Because of the Microsoft AVI setting, that I asked for in post #3.
Oh I see, sorry that took awhile to find. I guess it's because back in CS3, I always exported to .wmv and it had no capabilities to export to .avi.
Thanks everyone for the help.
With formats/CODEC's/Presets like DV-AVI Type II, there are some things that cannot be changed. This confuses many folk.
When you choose something that is set to 720x480, you have to choose something else, should you want to change to 320 x 240, then you need another Preset. NTSC DV-AVI will be basically 720 x 480. The PAR might need to be altered for 4:3 vs 16:9.
