After creating and finishing a time-lapse sequence in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, is there a way to save it as a separate and finished video clip so that it can later be added back into the timeline at a future date?
I wish to do this after each finished time-lapse sequence, so that they can be saved and assembled later with other sequences, and there must be NO loss of quality.
I would great appreciate any help in achieving this, because I have no idea of how to go about it, if it is even possible.
Export using an uncompressed format; both Microsoft AVI and QuickTime provide "None" options that will give you a perfect rendition of your sequence. Note that the files will be ginormous and probably difficult to play in realtime.
Other visually lossless codecs like Lagarith or UT video codec might be good options if you're on a PC; they're free (Google 'em) and appear as codec options under the Microsoft AVI format.
