How to Batch Export Clips in Premiere Pro
Need to export a lot of sequences or clips at the same time? No problem! Here’s how to batch export in Premiere Pro.
There’s an easy way and a hard way to go about batch exporting in Premiere Pro. The hard way is to export each sequence individually. The easy way is to use the technique outlined in the steps below. Essentially this technique is a quick way to add a lot of clips into the render queue of Adobe Media Encoder.
Step 1: Select Your Clips
Select all of the clips or sequences you wish to export in the project panel. Don’t worry if you select something that can’t be exported like folders.
Step 2: Select Export Media
With your footage selected, right click and select “Export Media.” You can also hit Command+M or navigate to File>Export>Media.
Step 3: Adjust Settings
You’ll notice that the export menu looks a little different when you’re exporting more than one piece of footage. Namely, you won’t see a preview box. The process here is really quite similar to when you export clips individually. Simply adjust your export settings as needed. If you want each clip to have different export options, you can change that once the clips are in Media Encoder (step 4).
Step 4: Queue
Once your export settings are set, simply select ‘Queue‘. You should now see Adobe Media Encoder open and your clips will be loaded into the queue. Once you’re in Media Encoder, you can adjust the export settings of individual clips, change the output location, or simply start the export.
Step 5: Export
Once you’re ready to export, simply hit the small green play arrow at the top of the window. Your clips will now be exported to your specified location.
