      Please help. I am new to Adobe Premiere Elements. For the store front I am using I need to make videos smaller then 10mb in order to be able to sell them as a downloadable product. I have aprox a 7 min video that I rendered in flash. But it is still 17MB. The video was shot in HD. I am completely lost. I have read many posts all over the internet. I don’t know if I can edit the frame size and if I do, what should I make the dimensions be. Please help.

      I have tried rendering the files into different formats like flash and windows media player etc.

      But this 7 min video is still 17mb. I then tried to compress the file with winzip to upload and I only saved like 1 mb.

      In elements I don’t know how to change settings to make the file size smaller and still maintain the best quality for internet viewing.

      You should look at using MPEG-4. There are two different types of MPEG-4 video formats: Portable and AVC (Advanced Video Codec). Portable MPEG-4is the very small (and very lossy) format that is mostly used with iPods. AVC MPEG-4 is a very efficent format that generates small files and reasonable picture quality. Many players have problems playing AVC, however, as it is still a relatively new format.

      If you still want to maintain the HD quality, take a look at AVC-HD (if Adobe Premiere Supports it). This format is also AVC-based, so you might run into compatibility issues.
