The Preset Browser provides you with options that help streamline your workflow in Adobe Media Encoder.
System presets in the browser are organized as categories based on their use (such as Broadcast, Web Video) and device destination (such as DVD, Blu-ray, Camera, Tablet). You can modify these presets to create custom presets, also called User Presets.
In the Preset Browser, you can quickly find a preset using search, or using the enhanced navigation provided by the collapsible folder structure.
To create a custom User preset, do one of the following:
To create a new Preset Group, do one of the following:
Preset Groups can contain user presets, aliases to presets, or other preset groups.
To create an alias to a system or user preset, do one of the following:
To manage presets, use the Preset menu or the options in The Preset Browser (Window>Preset Browser). You can also right-click a preset in the Preset Browser to view the context menu for the available options.
A. Custom preset B. Preset group C. Create new preset D. Delete preset E. Create new preset group F. Preset settings G. Import presets H. Export presets I. Search for presets
Only custom presets can be edited. Changes to system presets can be saved as new user presets by clicking the Save A Copy button in the Preset Settings dialog.
Right-click the preset in the Preset Browser and select Reveal Preset File.
As you type in the search field, the Preset Browser filters the preset list to match your search string. All columns are scanned for matching results.
Presets can be imported and exported as EPR files. EPR files are saved in the XML format.
You can also drag-and-drop EPR files to the User Presets and Groups section.
To apply presets to sources in the Queue, do one of the following:
To apply presets to watch folders in the Watch Folders panel, do one of the following:
To apply presets to Adobe Premiere Pro sequences, do one of the following:
This procedure is the only way to add multiple presets to Adobe Premiere Pro sequences in a single step. The Export Settings dialog in Adobe Premiere Pro allows you to apply single presets when exporting sequences to Adobe Media Encoder.
Adobe Media Encoder now allows you to ingest media files from a camera onto a local drive so that you can quickly start editing in Premiere Pro. You can now launch AME, select the clips you want to ingest using the Media Browser and set In/Out points if necessary.
Ingest the clips by dragging them to an Ingest preset in the Preset Browser, or by dragging them directly to the Queue and applying an Ingest preset to the new sources there. The Ingest Preset Settings dialog lets you choose a destination on your local machine to copy the camera files to, choose a Transcode format, and set up Metadata or rename your assets if necessary. When the queue is done processing, you can import the files to your Premiere Pro project to begin editing.
To copy files from a camera or networked volume, turn on 'Copy files to destination' and specify a location for the ingested files by clicking 'Browse For Location' and selecting a destination folder. To ensure that the copied files match the original, select Verify and choose one of the following options:
To transcode files during ingest, turn on 'Transcode files to destination' and specify a location for the ingested files by clicking 'Browse For Location' and selecting a destination folder. Next, choose a transcoding Format and Preset from any of the installed system presets or choose a custom Encoding preset that you previously created or imported to the Preset Browser.
You can add metadata during ingest by creating a custom form (or schema) to be applied to each ingested file as XMP metadata. To add metadata, turn on 'Add File Metadata' in the File Metadata section. To create a preset, do the following:
The metadata name and the metadata value together are called the metadata pair or key-value pair. You can choose to provide a default value to the name or add the value dynamically during ingest.
To edit a preset, do the following:
Metadata presets can be shared with other users by sending them the preset file. This can be helpful by establishing consistent sets of metadata that your teams can leverage when organizing assets and content. To locate the presets on your computer, click the downward icon next to the Preset menu, and select Show in Explorer or Show in Finder. To import a preset, click the downward arrow next to the Preset menu and select Import Preset. Select the presets that you want to import and click Open. File Metadata presets are saved as .PLMP files in the following location:
You can rename files during ingest by creating renaming presets that add specific strings to the output file name.
Files that are a part of a complex folder structure (like P2) are not renamed.
To rename files on ingest, turn on 'Rename files' in the File Rename section. To create a preset for naming files, do the following:
To add additional elements, click the "+" button again. Click Save to save the preset, enter a name for the preset, and ensure that the name doesn't contain spaces.
To edit file renaming presets, follow these steps:
Consistent naming conventions can be useful in collaborative workflows. You can share renaming presets with other users by sending them the preset file. To locate the presets on your computer, click the downward icon next to the Preset menu and select Show in Explorer or Show in Finder. To import a preset, click the downward arrow next to the Preset menu and select Import Preset. Select the presets that you want to import and click Open. File Rename presets are saved as .PLRP files in the following location:
Ingest outputs in the queue behave in a way similar to Encoding outputs but with some important differences. The format of ingest outputs is always shown as 'Ingest'. If transcoding is enabled, the ingest output's tool tip will show the format and preset of the encoding preset it is associated with. For example: 'H.264 (Match Source - High bitrate)'
You can change an ingest output to an encoding output by choosing a different format from the Format popup menu. Conversely, you can change an encoding output to an ingest output by changing it's format to 'Ingest'. To edit an ingest output, do one of the following:
This opens the Ingest Settings dialog where you can make any necessary changes. In order to save your settings click the OK button. This changes the ingest output’s Preset Name to 'Custom' in the Queue.
Ingest destinations are shown in the Output File column. If both Copy and Transcode option are enabled you can toggle between the two paths by using the popup arrow to the left of the destination path. Click the destination's hot-text link to open the destination folder.
