    I have premire and was wondering what the best way to output and compress a video would be?? I tried the thing with tmpgenc but it didn't work out for me, maybe ill try it again. But are there any other good ways??

    I have the divx codec, but i don't know what level i should adjust everything to. Is there anything in comparison to divx, or is divx the bestest?

    In my opinion, you should output in mpeg1. You can do this directly from premiere, I believe. I'd shoot for a bitrate around 1100-1200kilobits/sec for the video and encode the video at 128-224kbit/sec. That would give you a filesize of around 10mb per minute, pretty much standard trials video size. DiVX is fine and everything, but I wouldn't bother with it since mpeg1 gives a nice video size with perfectly acceptable video quality and everyone can play it.

    Don't even bother with DiVX.

    Alex P, ive done that tutorial thing and the genc program gives me an error when i try to select imput video file.

    Bill, what exactly would the codec be called in premire? There is no MPEG1 codec, its a huge list with divx, cinepak, intel video blah blah....

    I have no idea, I haven't used premiere in about 2 years now, but I could have sworn there was an option to output vid in mpeg1

    I export as an uncompressed AVI file (max EVERYTHING out). Comes out pretty huge (up to a couple of gig).

    Then run that through another programme - namely TmpegEnc or VirtualDub. Ive found the Adobe Mpeg Encoder to give poor results.]

    Info here:

    Hope thats of some help...

    Edit: Use alex's guide for Mpeg :Sonic:

    thanks but ive already tried vitual dub too. Gives me an error also. Please just tell me specific settings in the export setting window within premiere.. In general section do i choose avi dv or just avi, then what do i choose in the video section?

    This stuff is aggrivating and time consuming why can't it just work right! glahhhhhhg

    I have found Quicktime mp4 format is a good balance between file size and quality for web-posting, and you can play it on almost any platform......not bad for $30 from Apple
