Hello, I am trying to export clips (>export >devices >share work area bar only), but the clips render by default and the exported clips take a long time to export and result in HUGE files.  The file size is my biggest concern as I will quickly use up my disk space, and it seems so unnecessay as I haven't added text or special effects.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank-you..

File size has to do with codecs, compression and data rate. You have to make sure you're compariing apples to apples. The effects, titles, etc., you add to your movie has no effect on the size of your output video.

 

It's rare that your output file will be exactly the same size as your input file.

 

Beyond that it's hard to say without knowing all of the detailed specs of your source video or even what device recorded your original video. Premiere Elements can reduce the data rate of your files and quality if you really want smaller files. But in most cases the files it produces are the right balance of quality and file size.

 

Where did your original files come from? What if, as an experiment, you take a five minute clip of your video and output a five minute movie from it? How large is your original file and how large is your finised movie?

Thank-you. I took a 10 minute clip from a 1 hour and 10 minute video.  The clip took 1 hour to render.  The original file is 3,447,917 kb.  The rendered clip (no option not to render) is 1,196,572 kb.  The rendered clip is 34.7% of the original size; it should be 14.3% of the original file size.  Does this help?

PS I couldn't get back in with my Adobe account and continuing with Google seems to have created a new account?

No, that is a incorrect assumption.

Elements does not use the same codec (compression, bitrate) as the original file. Hence the difference in filesize

Filesize = bitrate x duration.

Post screenshot export settings.

If your disk is filling up quickly, it means you need a bigger one.
