Premiere Pro Guru: Outputs and Media Encoder

via LinkedIn Learning


Discover how to output video from Premiere Pro with Adobe Media Encoder.

Outputting video is one of the most important yet misunderstood parts of the creative process. If you work with Premiere Pro, you need to understand Adobe Media Encoder—the encoding engine that outputs your media for playback on mobile devices, Blu-Ray and DVD, broadcast networks, and the web. In this course, Jason Osder explains everything you need to know to use Media Encoder to ingest, process, and output video in any format. He also shows you how to access Media Encoder from inside Premiere Pro or as a stand-alone program; create an efficient export workflow; and output formats for broadcast, DVD or Blu-ray, websites like YouTube, and iOS and Android devices. Plus, learn how to apply color correction and effects during processing and leverage the custom settings and automation features to speed up your workflow.
