4k presets for Adobe Media Encoder
I was asked the other day when Adobe will offer a 4k output from the H.264 encoder. The answer is simple – it’s there today!
Currently, the Media Encoder (and, by association, Premiere Pro) doesn’t ship with presets for 4k H.264 output, simply because it’s not a common enough format. But it’s reasonably simple to make your own.
I won’t go into all the details of H.264 encoding here, but the key thing to know is that the encoder settings include something called Profile and Level. These settings set limits for what type of file you can create.
I’ve created some sample presets for you to play with – these use a really small bit rate, so you may want to tinker with the quality some and make your own presets accordingly, but these will get you started.
