Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 offers a full array of export options—methods of recording your projects to tape, converting them to files, or burning them to DVDs.
Recording to tape is straightforward, while file creation has many more options. For example, you can record only the audio portion of your project; convert a video segment or entire project into one of many standard file formats; or export still frames, sequences of still frames, or animation files.
Of greater relevance are the higher-level video encoding formats available in Adobe Media Encoder. You’ll use that powerful tool to create projects for posting on a web site, for burning to multimedia CDs, or for exporting to mobile devices using the new Adobe Device Central CS5 software. If you need to create Flash Video for web sites, you can export Flash Video with web markers. Adobe Media Encoder is a stand-alone application that handles exports in batches, so you can export in several formats simultaneously and process in the background while you work on other applications, including Adobe Premiere Pro.
