Not only can you create custom proxy presets for when you create proxy files in Adobe Media Encoder, you can also create custom ingest presets. How do you create custom ingest presets? In this video, author Jeff Greenberg demonstrates how to create an ingest preset in Media Encoder that best fits your workflow.
- With our encoding preset built to be very aggressive H264 at 360 designed for hi def and new HD material, with that burn in we're now going to make an ingest preset to tell Premier where to put these files, where to put our full quality and our proxys and then we need to hand it off to Premier. In Media Encoder I go up to my little plus and I say instead of new encoding, new ingest preset. You can see we get this long list of items here.
I'm going to start with which actual transcode preset I want. My transcode preset, transcode files to destination, I'd like it to be the H264 category and I'd like to pick my super proxy so it's going to do the right transcode. Now we gotta tell it where to put it. I'd like it to put my full quality material in my online folder so I'm going to browse for location, I'm going to tell it to go to my online hard drive, I'm going to choose that folder and say choose.
That would be this hard drive right here and now let's go ahead and target where we'd like our proxys to go. Here in Media Encoder I'm going to say transfer them to my proxy drive. Browse for location, my offline drive. I'm going to create a folder called Offline and say choose there. So that's where the proxys will end up and just remember I can override that in the ingest preferences, when I actually go and say ingest I can choose where I'd like it to go but these are the one for this setting.
Just a quick double check, I'm doing MD5 comparison, it's going to verify it gets there, the last thing I need to do here is change the preset name and comments. So this happens to be my super proxy 360p width burn in for HD and UHD and I'd just like to select all copy, click down here, select all. That's a Ctrl+a on a PC Command+A on mac, Ctrl+v paste.
I like them to match this what's going to show up everywhere else when we see those dialog boxes so we know what they're meant for. At this point I can say okay. If I were to go ahead and drag this on to my preset this would actually go ahead because it's an ingest preset. It would copy that one file to the right locations, locations plural and it would add the underscore proxy. But the next movie shows you how to add it to Premier so it becomes a choice we can pick there about where our ingest should go to.
