Using Adobe Media Encoder for Multi-Format Export Videos from Premiere Pro

On this video, media creation expert Colin Smith from VideoRevealed talks using Adobe’s media encoder software and how you can use it to export different format videos (such as different resolution for example) from Premiere Pro in a simple and easy way.

Let’s say that you need to create several copies of a video project that can be used on different platforms or services in different resolutions/bitrates etc. You can do this from inside Premiere Pro by exporting each one individually (and changing the export settings for each video). However, this is a slow method.

What Smith is demonstrating in this video is how you can do the same thing using Adobe’s media encoder (if you never used it is a pretty simple yet powerful software that helps you Ingest, transcode, create proxies, and output to almost any format you can imagine and it can do many operations in succession and there are ways you can even automate its operation to a degree).

All you need to do when you are ready to export your video is press file>export>media on Premiere Pro and clicking export choose queue which will open the video file in Media Encoder.

Here we can save a sort of a template if we like so that each time we choose it will export to multiple specific formats (and of course you can make several of these for different services/formats etc.). Now you look at the left at the preset browser (open it if the tab is closed) and choose the formats that you want and when you choose it, press right click and choose “create alias”. You can group this and as many other aliases as you like by clicking on a plus button on the preset browser top left.

You can play with the resolution and bit rate and any other setting that you would change otherwise in Premiere Pro for exporting your file. You can name your preset and when you finish naming it and the specific aliases you can drag and drop the preset group to the queue in Media encoder on the right. Here you get all of the exports that you created and you can choose either a single location to export to or three separate locations.

Now you can start the “play” button and it will start exporting all of your videos (you can continue working in Premiere at the same time by the way if your computer is powerful enough).
