I've exported finished videos, but I can't figure out where Premier is putting them on my computer.  It would be nice to be able to control that.  But in the export settings I see no way to do that.  I have to find the exported file by using the spotlight search on my Mac.  Can't I create a folder and put all my exported videos into it?   How do I do that?

Clicking on the Link opens a standard save dialogue where you can name the file and save it to any location (folder/drive) of your choice,

Also...Tip : Rename your edit sequence as soon as you create it... to something other that  the clip name (clip number).

This video will show you how to find videos that you might have misplaced, and it shows you how to choose an export location for each video so you'll never lose a video again!

When you go into the Export dialog/process, the name of the video is highlighted in blue. Click that, and it will open the Finder/Explorer window and show where it is planning on putting the clip.

 

If you want to change, simply change that location.
