Question about Adobe Premiere Elements 4

1 Answer

How do I convert AVI files to MP4 files using Premiere Elements 4

I have Adobe Premiere Elements 4 on my laptop, and the help function isn't very helpful, nor is the manual. I have .avi video files from my digital camera that I want to put on my iPod Touch, but they must first be converted to .mp4 (MPEG-4) files. Premiere Elements 4 should be able to do it, but the stupid program wants to turn every job into a 'project' first instead of just converting formats. I don't want to turn my video clips into 'projects' or add opening titles, etc. -- all I want to do is convert a few video clips to .mp4 format. Help!! Anyone know how to do this? Thanks in advance.

ps -- I figure Premiere Elements should be able to convert to .flv files, too; if you also know how to do that, please include in your post. Thanks!

    Yeah, I've tried other free or trial software, and that stuff didn't
    work; I suppose I'll try the ones you mentioned -- BUT THAT DOESN'T
    ANSWER MY QUESTION: I want to know how to convert files with Premiere
    Elements 4! What's the point of having Premiere Elements if I can't
    use it??

Using .MOD Files In Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 solutions are flawed.


http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html

use their free converter, i've been using it ever since i needed to convert files for my picky nokia 770. personally i convert the .mod files into .avi, and .mp3 (since premiere doesn't recognize the audio as an .avi) its pretty straightforward on how to set it, it even comes with its own codecs
