Exporting Sections of a Sequence

Recently on the Creative Cow forum, editor Frank Bokoski Jr. ran into a little trouble exporting from Premiere Pro. Specifically, Frank wanted to export segments of his sequence the way he did in other applications. When exporting, Frank set In and Out points on the timeline and then attempted to export only this section. Frank found that the In and Out points were being ignored. So the question remains: how does one export only a segment of a sequence?

Fortunately, Premiere Pro experts Ann Bens and Jeff Pulera stepped in to help. Jeff offered up the workflow, while Ann provided specific details (like keyboard shortcuts and step order) for that workflow. Here are the steps for exporting segments of your sequence:

  1. Place the playhead at the in point and type ALT+[
  2. Place the playhead at the out point and type ALT+]
  3. Choose File>Export>Media
  4. Set the Source Range menu to Work Area (bottom left)
  5. Adjust any the rest of the output settings, if desired
  6. Click the Queue button
  7. Adobe Media Encoder opens
  8. Click the Start Queue button
  9. The encoding process begins
  10. Repeat this process for all the segments you wish to export
You can also export your entire sequence from Premiere Pro by choosing File>Export>Media. Once in Media Encoder, you can drag the orange in and out points (just above the Source Range menu) to include a segment prior to exporting. However, most people find the previous method of exporting the Work Area to be more quick and precise.

Excerpts from Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Classroom in a Book

Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Classroom in a Book is probably one of the best resources for learning the application. It uses a step-by-step approach that guides beginners through typical editing workflows. If you are new to Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 either as a beginner or as someone switching from another editing application, I can highly recommend this book.

If you have not checked out the book yet, you can preview the content by reading the excerpts that were recently released. The excerpts include valuable information not only for Adobe Premiere Pro, but how to use Photoshop, After Effects and Adobe Encore with the application.

Here are the links to the excerpts by subject (in bold text), as well as links to corresponding content here at adobe.com:
