Work with Bridge and Adobe Media Encoder

You can easily select your video assets in Bridge and open them in Adobe Media Encoder to transcode or stitch the selected videos together.

Follow these quick steps to create your queue or stitched video in Media Encoder directly from Bridge:

  1. Select your videos in Bridge in the order you want. To rearrange your videos in a particular order, choose Sort Manually from the path bar above the Content panel. 

  2. With your videos selected, go to Tools >  Media Encoder > Add to Encoder Queue / Stitch Clips Together

    • Add to Encoder Queue: Add video clips to the encoder queue from Bridge and select the required encoding option for each file separately in Adobe Media Encoder. In Media Encoder, these assets are queued for encoding.
    • Stitch Clips Together: Stitch your video clips from Bridge together into one file. You can further rearrange video clips in Media Encoder before you start processing the queue. In Media Encoder, these assets are queued for encoding to be outputted as a single stitched clip.

    Drag and drop the content as desired and then select the set of clips to invoke the Media Encoder workflows.

    Encode in Adobe Media Encoder

To add clips to a new project in Media Encoder, you can also select the videos in Bridge and cmd-click/right-click to open contextual options. Choose Place > In Adobe Media Encoder. The new videos will appear in your Media Encoder workspace from where you can easily drag and place in your existing sequence.

Place in Media Encoder

If you have Media Encoder installed on your machine, your video selections will directly open in Media Encoder from where you can resume further editing. If you don't have Media Encoder installed, you will be prompted to install it on your machine.
