MPG is a compression format that uses what we call a 'lossy form of compression.' It means that a bit of data is removed during the compression process, which reduces quality. However, the typical user will find the quality indistinguishable from the original file. The bonus from converting an MKV file to an MPG is its compatibility with mobile devices and video streaming platforms. So why should you convert an MKV to MPG? While MKV has excellent video quality and plenty of advanced features, the drawback is the lack of compatibility with portable devices, some media players, and of course, the large file size. MPG is more user-friendly and much smaller than MKV; it performs with excellent quality for everyday use, such as watching movies, shows, or short clips. The reduced file size also makes it easier to share online through email or video streaming platforms.

Simply drag and drop the video from the Pinnacle Studio library or your computer file explorer on to the timeline. Should you wish to crop video, trim video, or make any other edits, now is the time to do so.
When you’re happy with the video on the timeline, go to the Export tab in Pinnacle Studio. The default tab on the export tab is to export to file. Here you can select which file type you wish to export your video as.
Under properties, you can select the video profile to render too. To the right, under the preview pane, you can see the projected file size. Ex. If you select a 4K video format, the file size will be larger than if you export to an HD profile. Once your file type and profile are selected, you can proceed to export.
To begin export, press the Start Export button. This will render your video to the file format of your choice. This is a quick and easy way to export and convert video from one file format to another.
