    How to get h.265 on After Effects CS5


      I am trying to render out a video at the resolution of 4k 3840 x 2160 (60p) then have it play through a 4K Brightsign. I am getting a mismatched settings error. I assume I need H.265 settings but it is not in my list of presets, is this unavailable for AE CS5?

          AE CS5 didn't do a very good job of encoding into H.264 anyway.

          I'd suggest rendering to an intermediate codec (QuickTime with the Photo-JPEG codec, for example) and then bring that into the Adobe Media Encoder. The AME has a lot more options for encoding anyway (such as multipass).


          For a clue as to how bad AE was at encoding H.264, the Adobe team removed the ability to do it at all from the current versions.
