    Premiere Pro 2 question

    persius007 Level 1

      Hello.


      It's been a while sinse I used Premiere Pro 2 and I'm in need of help to solve a problem.

      I've created the movie I need and I'm in the process of finalizing it. I wish to create a MPEG2 film and there is one option I'm unable to find.

       

      I'm using (or trying to use) media encoder.

      File ->  export ->  adobe media encoder

       

      When I click "export settings" and then select the format drop down, I should see (according to the manual) the following options:

      -mpeg1

      -mpeg1 vcd

      -mpeg2

      -mpeg2-dvd

      -mpeg2-svcd

       

      With my drop down options, I only see the following:

      -macromedia flash

      -quicktime

      -realmedia

      -windowsmedia

       

      I now don't know if I didn't select an option elsewhere or if this is the result of something else.  Can somebody please make a suggestion as to what is going on?

       

       

      Thank you.

          It sounds like you have installed the trial version of PrPro 2.0, and not the full-paid version. All things MPEG will be missing from the trial.

           

          Good luck,

            Here's what you should see in the full-paid version of PrPro 2.):

              Hello Hunt

               

              Thanks so much for taking time out to reply.

              I did find out what I did wrong and now my program is correctly installed as full version.

               

              If I may trouble you for one more question.  I would like to post my video online and for some reason, once I've compiled it, I get a seperate video file and seperate audio file. Did I mess something up?

              I'm relying on the Premiere 2 Pro manual and I thought I was following the correct steps but the book doesn't say anything about 2 seperate files.

               

              Lastly, my original video in premiere is 23 minutes long, but when finalized, it's down to 13 minutes!  Any ideas?

               

               

              Thank you again.

                Derek,

                 

                I would like to post my video online and for some reason, once I've compiled it, I get a seperate video file and seperate audio file. Did I mess something up?

                 

                There are a couple of places to assign Multiplexing (muxing). The first will be on your General screen, where you will choose both Audio and Video. Then, go to the Multiplexing setting and choose DVD, and not None. That should get you one muxed file with both Audio and Video in one.

                 

                Lastly, my original video in premiere is 23 minutes long, but when finalized, it's down to 13 minutes!  Any ideas?

                 

                The only thing that comes to mind, that can alter the Duration is the WAB (Work Area Bar). One can Export just the WAB, or the full Sequence. The latter is what you want, and not the WAB. While it can cover the full Sequence, it's basic design is to allow one to Export just certain segments, set by the WAB.

                 

                Hope that helps,

                 

                Good luck,
