Choosing a format automatically makes available a list of associated presets designed for particular delivery scenarios. Adobe Media Encoder uses characteristics of the source item to make its best guess about the best preset to select. You can create and save your own presets, export them, or import additional ones.
You can change the presets settings in the Export Settings dialog. Click Preset > Settings or press Ctrl+Alt+E to open the Export Settings dialog.
Adobe Technical Support supports only Adobe Media Encoder presets that are included with Adobe applications.
The encoding presets are located in the same location as the Adobe Media Encoder files. To access presets quickly, right-click a user preset in the Preset Browser and choose Reveal Preset File.
You can only import a preset for a given format when that format is selected in the Format menu. For example, If you try to add an MPEG 2 preset, you will get an error if the format is set to MP3, for example. Set the format to MPEG 2 first before creating a new preset.
You can create custom presets, import and export presets, and delete presets using the Preset Browser. See Using Preset Browser to learn how to manage presets with the Preset Browser.
