Create and save a custom preset

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.

Note:

Adobe Technical Support supports only Adobe Media Encoder presets that are included with Adobe applications.

  1. In the Format menu, select a format.

  2. In the Preset menu, select the preset that most closely matches the settings you want. If the preset has been edited, you will see Custom next to the preset.

  3. Click the format or preset name to open the Export Settings dialog box and edit the settings.

  4. Click the Save Preset button.

  5. Type a name for the preset, choose whether to save specific categories of parameters as prompted, and click OK.

Note:

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.

Import a preset

  1. Click the Import Preset button.

  2. Navigate to the location of the preset, select it, and then click Open.

  3. Type a name for the imported preset, specify other options, and then click OK.

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.

Export a preset

  1. In the Export Settings dialog box, choose the preset you want to export.

  2. Alt-click (Windows) or Option-click (Mac OS) the Save Preset button.

  3. Choose the location to save the preset, name it, and then click Save.

    The preset is saved as a file with the filename extension .epr.

Delete custom presets

  1. In the Export Settings dialog box, choose the custom preset you want to delete.

  2. Do either of the following:
    • To delete a single preset, click the Delete Preset button.
    • To delete all custom presets, Ctrl+Alt‑click (Windows) or Command+Option-click (Mac OS) the Delete Preset button.
