Video is not exported from File/Export in version 9.
You use the options under the Share tab. (The most versatile options are under the Computer options.) I'm not sure how many of these functions work in the trial version though.
Are you really using Premiere 6.5? Wow! I think you'll find Premiere Elements a much more exciting and powerful program!
Thanks for your answer Steve,
in fact I had tried the Share tab and had a look at the Computer options but since I didn't find the settings I was looking for I thought these were "basic" settings for everyday use and that a larger choice of settings would be available via the File/Export functionality. Strange anyway they let it greyed out in the versin 9.
I'm actually trying to convert a 1024x576 .mov file to a AVI/DV file with the same dimension, maybe you have an idea?
PS: I'm sure Premiere Element will be definitely more powerfull than my 6.5, but I've got such a long way to go to get used to it !
You can create custom sizes for your output videos by clicking on the Advanced button on the Share/Comptuer/AVI page.
But I'm not sure about your situation. You're using a very non-standard frame size (and likely a very non-traditional video source). I can't guarantee it will work without problems.
Premiere Elements is primarily for editing video from camcorders.
Thank you Steve,
I have to admit I'm not very familiar with that type of frame size either.
I'll try to find a solution in the Advanced button on the Share/Comptuer/AVI page as you suggested.
Maybe the Pro version would be more adapted for that matter?
But that problem aside, my needs are very basic, so I think it would be a pity to use such a powerful tool for so basic actions.

What kind of camcorder is that video coming from?
And is it really necessary to export it at the same frame size? Where do you plan to display it?
DVDs use smaller video frames and BluRay players use bigger.
Thanks for your feedbacks, Steve,
I don't know the details of the camera the videos are from.
My final need is to transform these .mov files in flv files for an online use.
The tool i use for FLV transformation needs .avi as a source (it could also handle .mov I suppose, but it has to process many types of videos, and the avi format is the common format, otherwise i'll have to split my process according to the type of videos, I hope I won't have to do so).
I'd like to keep the higher frame size possible in order to have an avi source that would be as good as possible, so I'll only have to change my flv settings if, let's say in 2 years time, online standards should require higher quality videos. I hope you understood what I have in mind.
I'm sorry, FG. I don't have enough information to be able to help you.
