I am still on version 4 of premiere elements and I just learned by searching through some old posts that you can export a video as .mp4 by selecting the mobile phone option. I never knew this and for years have been exporting as mpeg2 and using handbrake and other software to convert to mp4 so i can tag it. I was very excited to learn this and assumed I had to upgrade to get it. But I checked and the option exists in version 4! All this time and I have been double rendering for no reason.
Anyway, now that I have been looking at upgrading I am curious if anyone knows if the software has improved its exporting abilities since version 4 (meaning, will I get improved output quality if I upgrade or is it the same?) Definitely willing to upgrade to get improved quality, there are no other new features that I must have (though some look interesting).
Thanks in advance for any help, figure if I am going to do it might as well do it now while I can buy it for $50.
The rendering system is essentially unchanged, Peter.
Thanks for the reply, appreciate it. Will take a closer look at the other features to see if I can find an excuse to upgrade
