Exporting Video for Youtube/Vimeo with Adobe Premiere

This quick tutorial will show you how to export a video out of Adobe Premiere for Youtube or Vimeo.

While you can export any video out of Premiere and upload to Youtube or Vimeo, there are certain presets that you can select in order to optimize the file and make it the best quality for these specific platforms.

When you’re ready to export your content, go to the toolbar and select file -> export -> media.

Once you’ve done that, all you need to do is go to the preset dropdown under “Export Settings” and scroll until you find the preset with the quality setting you’re looking for. At the very bottom of the menu there’s a series of different quality options for Youtube or Vimeo. The higher quality the better, but keep in mind that higher quality videos will take up more space in your device and take longer to upload, so consider leaving ample time if it’s a large file and/or using an external hard drive.

Once you’ve selected your desired preset, just select export and you’re good to go!
