There is also a function called “Advanced Audio Coding” (AAC) that is widely used in any type of video content. Moreover, it is more preferable to MP3.


To elevate the level of the audio quality, set the bitrate to 512 kbps. Everything depends on the bitrate. The higher the bitrate - the better the export quality.

After complying with all the given guidelines, press “Export” and our congratulations, the work is done! So since this time, you are a master in video exporting through Adobe Premiere Pro.
