I’ve written this tutorial for anyone who uses adobe premiere pro and wants to find out the best way to compress a video using “Windows Media Video”.

I cover things like what bitrates to use with what resolution and frame rate as well as what a few of the different settings do and mean. Find out for yourself and take a read at adobe premiere tutorial text animation Free…(not you will need to copy and paste image url’s in to your browser)

Getting to Adobe Media Encoder

  1. Render all untendered footage if you haven’t done so already in premiere pro
  2. Now go, File >> Export >> Adobe Media Encoder
  3. Select “Windows Media” from the format drop down list

Then, from the preset drop down list, select something like “WMV9 720 25p” (doesn’t really matter what you choose)

Video Settings

  1. Select “Video” on the left hand side of the Adobe Media Encoder
  2. Under Video, make sure…

Select “Windows Media Video 9” as the codec

Leave “Allow Interlaced Processing” Unticked

Under Bitrate Settings, Select “Two” encoding passes and make sure the mode is “Variable Constrained”. This offers way better results compared to a single encoding pass

Audio Settings

  1. Select “Audio” on the left hand side of the Adobe Media Encoder
  2. Under Audio, make sure…

Select “Windows Media Audio 9.1” as the audio codec

Under Bitrate Settings, Select “Two” encoding passes and make sure the mode is “Constant”. This will make sure the audio quality stays the same the whole way through the video
