I use the Adobe Premiere Elements 12 and I cannot figure out how to save my video projects as MP3's, MPEG4, MP4, AVI, etc. Every time I save a project it saves as a ".prel" and I cannot upload that format to YouTube, which is what I want. I know you can directly upload to YouTube from Adobe, but my projects often exceed the time allotted. Can anyone tell me how to save my projects as one of the formats that YouTube allows? Thank you!
I have tried that, but it told me that my video exceeds 15 minutes (which it did) and because of that I could not directly upload to YouTube. Because of this, I was hoping to learn how to save my projects in the beginning to an appropriate format.
As Bill recommended, if you go to Export & Share/Devices/Computer, you can select the option to output a 1920x1080 MP4. Once you have this file output, you can use YouTube.com to upload the file to the site.
Although YouTube does have a maximum length for videos. Unless you have an upgraded account with YouTube, you may not be able to upload a video over a certain length.
