Adobe Media Encoder CS6

What is Media Encoder?

Adobe® Media Encoder CS6 software automates the process of creating multiple encoded versions of source files, Adobe Premiere® Pro sequences, and Adobe After Effects® compositions. An intuitive interface, background encoding, and convenient presets help you quickly output for virtually any screen. Adobe Media Encoder is included in Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Adobe Prelude™ software.

Preset Browser

Access commonly used settings immediately using the Preset Browser. Organize presets by category, set favorites, and customize your most frequently used encoding presets.

Fast, sure output to virtually any screen

Quickly and easily output your work for virtually any video or device format. Customize, set, and organize your favorite presets in the Preset Browser for fast export and batch encoding in the background.

Performance and stability

Use Watch Folders to quickly encode video from a single source to multiple output formats.

ARRIRAW, RED EPIC, and RED Scarlet-X support

Import your ARRIRAW, 5K RED EPIC®, and RED Scarlet-X footage directly into Adobe Media Encoder CS6 for transcoding to HD and SD formats.

Presets for devices and formats

Quickly and easily encode video by using presets that help ensure your video looks great on popular devices, platforms, and formats, including Android™ and iOS, YouTube, Vimeo, HDTV, and more.

Background batch encoding

Work more efficiently when transcoding. Adobe Media Encoder transcodes files in the background, freeing your system for other tasks. This is particularly important with 4K and 5K workflows that normally tax your system.

Source settings applied to encoding

Streamline your encoding workflow by automatically matching encoding settings to those of the original Adobe Premiere® Pro source sequence or Adobe After Effects® composition.

Drag-and-drop encoding

Drag and drop sequences from Adobe Premiere Pro and compositions from After Effects directly into Adobe Media Encoder, which can then encode them immediately.

Convenient watch folder workflow

Set Adobe Media Encoder to watch a folder. Automatically encode files arriving in the folder to a format you specify. Each watch folder can be set to encode to multiple formats.

Metadata output templates

Preserve metadata in encoded outputs to make production more efficient and enhance usability, or clear metadata before distribution to protect confidential production data.

Interpret Footage options

Override automatic interpretation of the frame rate, pixel aspect ratio, field order, or alpha channel settings of items you import into Adobe Media Encoder.

Crop and trim control

Easily crop the frame size and trim the in and out points of a clip or sequence.

Support for still image sequences

Automatically encode a numbered sequence of still images as a single video clip or convert any source file into a still image sequence.

Adobe Flash Professional cue points from metadata

Create FLV and F4V clips from Adobe Flash® Professional software with XMP cue points, which can be automatically read from the source, imported from an XML file, or manually entered in the Export Settings dialog box.

FTP export

Upload files to an FTP server that has storage space allocated for file sharing. This feature is especially useful for transferring large files over the Internet.

MPEG export options

Control how MPEG video and audio data are merged into a single stream or conversely, split into separate streams.
