Safest, we just want to keep this bit here. Now want we want to do is render the video. So, we make our own video file out with this. So we got the file, render as--now you will notice that if you click down here we got a lot offer choices. You can import this as an mp3, so obviously if you do not want the video, you just can right click this and delete the tracks, you just have the audio in and you can convert it into an mp3. You got quick time, you have got mpeg, you have got AVI; you have got WMA. You have got all kinds of different formats. Now a lot of people have problems with this because if you do not use the right format you can get unexpected results. Sometimes you will find that the file output is absolutely huge, you know, you probably find it goes up into the gigabyte range just a few seconds of clip. Now, last if you choose the wrong setting, I usually find that with AVI, that is the case. AVI has a higher quality, but the problem with high quality is you get a lot bigger file size.
What I tend to use is quick time or mpeg1. If you want to use Adobe Encore to your DVD’s with unfortunately Encore thus not support mpeg1, it only support mpeg2 so if you exporting your videos to use in conjunction with Adobe Encore make sure you set it mpeg2. However, just for the sake of this tutorial, I am going to select mpeg1. Now, down here we have our template settings, you can change it to NTSC or PAL. Now. NTSC is for the US basically frames per second, the format layers and PAL is for Europe and UK. PAL is 25 frames per second and NTSC is about 29.9 frames per second, right. I forgot to custom—we have got all our settings here, rendering it now for quality, good, however if you want good quality go to best, however if you are just testing your video to see what it looks like go to draft to preview. This is low quality video and it is basically not used for presentations or anything like that.
Down here you got some options, if you go to video and you can change your settings, you can change width and height, you can change video quality to high or low, same with your audio. As long you know what you are doing, you can control this, okay. So, you can count on that. If you want to use Quick Time, okay, right, for the highest quality it is free MBPS. Any of these have one, so slightly lower in quality. However the uncompressed one is very, very high quality but also very big in full size, so if you got a video clip, that is any longer than 20 seconds I would not recommend using this because your hard drive will just disappear. So, yes, if you want good quality but not high file size I would go to free MBPS.
The same thing, go to custom and change it to best, good preview, draft or whatever are your setting is. Obviously here as well, you can change the quality. You can change the size, you got all the settings here and you got NTSC, square pixel, NTSC-TV, NTSC Standard, high definition, high definition again with different resolutions. So you get quite a lot to mess around with.
So obviously I would recommend that if you rendering something get a piece of apprentice, it is not so big and render it under the different settings. Try all of this and see which one works best for you. So, yes, and once you have rendered it you should get in your folder that you choose. So if I just have a look at that
