Encoded in Media Encoder, still says "un transcoded" in Encore Why?

Apr 29, 2013 7:12 PM



I noticed that in Encore, the timeline that I encoded as an H.264 Blu-Ray file and imported into Encore as a timeline, needs Transcoding. It says "Untranscoded."


Why is this?


I thought that once I encoded it in Media Encoder from Premiere Pro CS 5.5, and imported it into Encore, it should not need transcoding.


When I did encode it, all I did was make it an H.264 Blu-Ray, PCM Audio. The only thing I changed was the Target and Max bit rate.


Did I do something wrong?


Thanks in advance

    I don't do BluRay, but you MAY have exported out of PPro into a file that is not "legal" for a BluRay


    The below saved links may help explain...

    Hi Edwurd,


    In the Encore Project panel, where you see "Untranscoded", expand that window further to the right until you see "Blu-Ray Transcode Status" at the top. For your .m4v file, it should say "Don't Transcode". So you see, when it says "Untranscoded", that is simply stating a fact - that Encore has not transcoded the file. This is NOT saying that it WILL transcode the file. Make sense? At some point, you might have transcoded some of the files in Encore already that needed it, and that would then show the updated status.
