This will open the Media Encoder, click the “output file” link in the queue to edit the settings.
Then you need to adjust the bitrate settings. Pressing the down arrow will open the box.
Before doing the bitrate settings, let’s understand “What is Bitrate?”
Bitrate means the amount of data size that can be encoded for a video at a specific time. In Premiere pro, this bitrate unit is Mbps or megabytes per second. Before changing the Bitrate settings, change the preset.
Change the bitrate encoding to “VBR, 2 pass”. Set the target and maximum bitrates to 2 and 5. VBR stands for “variable bit rate” and setting it to “VBR 2 Pass” will help you to keep the video quality as the actual file even after reducing the file size.
