Converting video files to Flash Video
Converting your video files is easy, and the length of time it takes depends on how large your original video file is, and your computer’s processing speed.
- In the first column under Format, select the F4V format.
- Under the Preset options, choose Web – 320x240, 4x3, Project Framerate, 500 kbps.
- Click the Output File.
- Click the Start queue button (triangular icon) in the upper-right corner.
F4V is the latest video format which encodes video using high-quality, low-bitrate h.264 format for Flash. FLV is a lower quality, but still valid format.
You can choose one of many standard preset options from the menu. The options determine the dimensions of the video and the quality of the video. The Web – 320 x 240 option converts your original video to a relatively small sized video so that you can incorporate it into your zoo kiosk project in Flash.
The Save As dialog box appears. You can choose to save the converted file in a different location on your computer and choose a different filename. Your original video will not be deleted or altered in any way.
Adobe Media Encoder begins the encoding process. Media Encoder displays the settings for the encoded video and shows the progress and a preview of the video in the Encoding panel.
When the encoding process finishes, a “Done” label and a green check appear in the Status column of the Queue panel. A sound indicates that the file has been converted successfully.
You now have the Penguins.f4v file in your Lesson07/07Start folder along with the original Penguins.mov file.
