Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Kelsey Brannan and welcome to my course, Premiere Elements 15 Fundamentals. I'm a video producer and a video editor in the Washington DC area and the founder of Premiere Gal, a video production YouTube channel. This course is designed for beginners and marketing professionals interested in learning how to edit videos for the first time. If this is you, welcome. Some of the major topics that we will cover include, how to add and organize your media to start your video project, video and audio editing basics, such as transitions, adding text, and recording your own narration, as well as some special effects, including working with green screen video and motion tracking. And lastly, how to export and share your final videos online. By the end of this course, you will have the skills and resources to begin editing your own videos for both professional and personal use. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn video editing with Premiere Elements 15 Fundamentals course at Pluralsight.

Exporting & Sharing
All right, so you've finished your movie, and now it's time to export. Exporting your video will make it its own independent video file that you can play and share outside of Premiere Elements 15. In this module, I will review all the export options Premiere Elements 15 provides. In this clip, I will review Quick Export. Quick Export is the easiest way to export your videos quickly to one format that will play on almost any device and the web. First, go to Export & Share and the default is Quick Export. You will see on the right that there's an output preview with a slider. This will let you scrub through your video to see a thumbnail of what your video will look like. Then below that are the Quick Export settings, which has a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. It'll also show you what the output file size will be, the duration, and the file format, which is a. mp4. What it will not show is that for HD projects, the Quick Export option defaults to H. 264 codec and 30 frames per second frame rate. You cannot change the file type or resolution in Quick Export mode. If you want to be able to change the file or the resolution, you'll learn that in the clips to follow, but if you are okay with these settings, simply go to the bottom of the window, change the output name, and you can browse to select a new destination on your computer, and hit Save. This will render and export your video. Now let's say you want to customize the output file type. In the next clip, I'm going to show you how to export your videos for particular types of devices.
