i have just installed Premiere Pro CS4 on a fresh Windows Vista Home Premium. (Sp1 and 100% just Updated with Windows Update)
After first fails on my target, i installed also the latest update for the Media Encoder (4.0.1??)
I'm able to open Adobe Media Encoder and to import files to work on(i tried a lot of file and also of extensions).
My settings are:
Windows Media Video (tried about all availables output settings and codecs)
Windows Media Audio 5.1 Channels (Both WMA 9 LossLess and 10 pro); Various Bitrates and Frequencies.
When i come back to the mai windows (exiting from the export settings), i naturally start the Queue, and, surprise the Audio settings are changed, sometimes to 100 kbs 2 Channels, sometimes to 4 kbs 2 channel, anyway ever 2 channels and not right Kbps settings.
I maked about 100 tests.
Now i will try to:
- Re-install Ms Windows Media Encoder 9 series.
- try to encode a file with the Ms Windows Media Encode series to see if the codec is working.
Meanwhile, please, if someone have a tip for me, i will be very happy for this.
My target is to get Movies (with 5.1 audo channels) to share with my xbox360. (by WMP11 and over network)
i found a possible cause(it's not 'possible', is the cause...)
I tried to encode some files using Windows Media Encoder....
Naturally when i set Multichannel Audio (5.1) with a 2 Channels Input file i get an error and i cannot proceed...
Then i used my file ( it is VOB file muxed in an Mpeg 2 Transport Stream container ) and i got the same error. I don't know why, because the Source Input is now AC-3 Multichannel).
Then, i think, Adobe Media Encoder when start to encode should not set the WMA settings to multichannel and then come back automatically to a compatible format.
It's ok, i solved my question myself, but now i have another question, because your Adobe Media Encoder appears to be the most simple, immediate and powerful tools on market:
Wich is the way to encode a DVD to WMV with Multichannel?
According to your offline tips, i used memcoder to get a single great vob file with Audio and Video streams.
After that i used Avidemux to transport the vob file to an Mpeg2 Trasport Stream compatible with Adobe...
