Some of the most common export settings that will get you going with your editing workflow.

Adobe Premiere Pro Export Settings

NB: this guideline is just a starting point; there are tons of situations where specific settings will be used - do your research & testing before setting for the one that suits you best! The following has worked for me but every editor has his/her own way.

 Where possible, tick "Render at Maximum Depth" & "Use Maximum Render Quality"

Where "Bitrate Settings" can be set: Set "Target Bitrate" to the desired setting (higher bitrate = bigger file size), then set "Maximum Bitrate" to about 5-10mbps more. Eg., Target Bitrate: 12mbps / Maximum Bitrate 17mbps
