Hello, need some help in exporting and encoding some large files from Premiere CS6.
We have 4 Sequences, each totalling 45minutes in length and in 1080p (ProRes422).
We need to export and encode for Windows Media Player as quickly as possible.
Looks like each export is going to take over an hour from Premiere as "Match Sequence Settings"
-keep in mind there is NO AUDIO.
Once it's out of Premiere as an MPEG, I can transcode to any format. Ultimately WMV would be optimal,
but we need to transcode the MPEG into a MOV file before 'Episode' will accept it, just to make the WMV files.
Target files: (4) 1080p Windows Media Player compatible files
Does anyone have a better workflow workaround? Midnight hour and need help!
Thanks in advance,
Does anyone have a better workflow
My God, yes. Just do the job once and export WMVs the first time.
(By the way, do you actually need the files in WMV format, or just something that Windows Media Player can handle?)
Thanks Jim, I can't export to WMV out of Premiere or Media Encoder. I use Episode to make my WMV files, and since Episode doesn't take MPEG in from Premiere (sigh)
I have to first make them in Quicktimes..
But yes! Anything Windows Media Player can handle... should I just go with the 5GB MPG files? No way for me to test, I'm on a Mac and these are playing on a PC
thanks for your help
Ok so I just read the Macs CANNOT export to WMV files thru Premiere or Encoder, even with the Flip4Mac plugin.
I need to test the playback compatibility more, but wondering if anything straight out of Encoder (Mac) will play in Windows Media Player.
