blueguerilla Posted January 18 Report Share Posted January 18 So, due to a computer failure, I am now set up on a new Mac for content creation. I build / animate content as well as program watchout, so I am looking for encoding solutions on the new machine. Previously I was encoding everything within adobe media encoder, which is certainly a convenient workflow. I already own AfterCodecs, (https://www.autokroma.com/AfterCodecs/) although I has stopped using it after Adobe allowed HAP back into ME natively, as I found AfterCodecs quite slow. I had been using the presets from Disguise, (https://github.com/disguise-one/hap-encoder-adobe-cc/) but on my last show I was having some difficulty with HAP files from ME, especially anything with Alpha. I ended up using the AVF batch exporter instead, which worked great but I also found to be a little slow (https://github.com/Vidvox/hap-in-avfoundation/releases) compared to ME. There is also the HAP quicktime component, (https://github.com/Vidvox/hap-qt-codec/releases) but that hasn't been updated since 2016, and I think the disguise presets basically replaced that? I am also interested in the Jokyo encoder, either the ME version or the standalone, (https://jokyohapencoder.com/jokyo-hap-meencoder-hap-encoder-plugin-for-adobe-media-encoder-and-premiere-pro/) as it is recommended by Dataton now, and none of the other above methods except After Codecs are listed on the official Dataton site. I know many people use FFmpeg, but I am looking for something with a bit more of a UI, doing tasks with code isn't my forte. I have a big show coming up in a couple months, and I am looking to set up the best workflow. Ideally it would be within Media Encoder if possible, as I like that I can set up a watch folder, but I am really looking for the best solution as far as quality assurance for files playing properly in WO, and of course encoding speed. Would love to know what people are using on here these days, as some of these methods seem a bit outdated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
