I have Adobe Premiere Elements 4. I have old family videos on a DVD (each one is 30 minutes long). I want to edit the 30 minute video into smaller 5-7 minute video segments. Then I want to create a separate video file for YouTube from each segment. Is there a way to do that within Elements 4 without disgarding the other video segments each time? Whenever I divide up the video into segments, Elements wants to create the output video using ALL of the segments rather than just one of them. Thanks
Make sure that you're using a project preset for DVD and hard drive camcorders.
Import your DVD video into your project and place it on the timeline.
Then set the Work Area Bar over the segment you want to output and go to Share/Personal Computer/WMV. Before you output your video, check the box that says Share Work Area Bar only.
Then move the Work Area Bar so that it is over the next segment, etc.
Thanks, guys. That helped a lot, and saved me quite a bit of time. I appreciate it.
