Premiere Pro CS4 Exports

A few folks have been confused by the look of Adobe's Media Encoder CS4 and the way that you now export files from Premiere Pro CS4. So, here's the short course.

File>Export>Media brings up a familiar dialog box. After choosing your settings and file destination, click OK. The dialog box will go away quickly and then it seems like nothing is happening. ... Relax and count to 10. Adobe Media Encoder CS4 is launching. Give it a few seconds to a few minutes depending on your machine.

Once Media Encoder is up and running, you'll see that your file's status is Waiting. What's it waiting for. Media Encoder is being polite, allowing you time to add more files to the queue. If you're ready to go, click on Start Queue.

After a few more seconds, the queue starts up and your file(s) begin to encode. Sit back and enjoy the show.

Once the encoding is finished, your status will change to a green check mark if all went well (why shouldn't it). Your files are now ready for distribution.
