Editing a clip without using in a project

I am using Premiere Elements 15. I simply want to edit video clips to upload to Adobe Stock, such as mute the audio and do some cutting. Elements always creates a project with an extension of "prel". I don't want a project. I just want my edited video to be in the file folder that it was in originally, just like they are when I correct photos with Photoshop. I can't seem to figure out how to do this.

You must have a project, since the project file contains the commands to edit your video file

 

When you are done editing, you use the share function to create a new video file

Video editing works more like Lightroom's non distructive workflow.  The original is never changed.  From it you make creative edits and export a new version.   Like photographers, video editors want editing tools to make improvements.

 

There is an exception.  Google for "smart rendering video editing software".  A few things will come up for reading.  I've never tried it, but "TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer" is often mentioned in other forums for what you say you want to do.
