How Do I Save a High Quality Video in Premiere Pro?

Are you tired of exporting low-quality videos from Adobe Premiere Pro? In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps of saving a high-quality video in Premiere Pro.

Step 1: Choose the right sequence settings

Before you start editing your video, you need to make sure that your sequence settings are correct. The sequence settings determine the resolution and frame rate of your final export. To select the right sequence settings, follow these steps:

  • Open Premiere Pro and create a new project.
  • Click on “File” in the top menu bar, then select “New” and “Sequence”.
  • In the “Sequence Settings” window, choose a resolution and frame rate that matches your footage. We recommend using a resolution of at least 1080p and a frame rate of 24 or 30 fps for high-quality videos.

Step 2: Edit your video

Now that you have set up your sequence settings, it’s time to edit your video. Make sure to cut out any unnecessary footage and add transitions, effects, and audio as needed.

Step 3: Export your video

Once you have finished editing your video, it’s time to export it in high quality. Follow these steps to do so:

  • Click on “File” in the top menu bar, then select “Export” and “Media”.
  • In the “Export Settings” window, choose a format for your video. We recommend using H.264 as it provides high-quality compression with small file sizes.
  • Under the “Preset” dropdown menu, choose “Match Source – High bitrate” option to ensure maximum quality output.
  • Select the “Maximum Render Quality” checkbox to enable Premiere’s high-quality scaling option for better scaling of your footage during the export process.
  • Choose a destination folder and click “Export” to start the export process.

Step 4: Check your export settings

After the export process is complete, it’s important to check the quality of your video. To do this, open your exported video in a media player and check for any issues such as pixelation or color distortion. If you are not satisfied with the quality, try adjusting your sequence settings or exporting again with different settings.


By following these steps, you can save a high-quality video in Adobe Premiere Pro. Remember to choose the right sequence settings, edit your video well, and use the correct export settings to ensure maximum quality output. With these tips, you can create stunning videos that will impress your audience.
