What’s Coming Next to Adobe Media Encoder
NAB is just around the corner and it’s time to show you what we’ve been working on in Media Encoder, our powerhouse encoding and rendering application.
Our marquee feature for the next release is Time Tuner, which lets you adjust the duration of content without painstaking micro-editing, something that has become more and more important in the age of multiple broadcast deliverables. We sometimes use the term “Adobe magic” to describe those features that really make you go wow – and Time Tuner is definitely one of them.
Set the target duration and Time Tuner gets right to to work, automatically adding or removing frames at scene changes, in sections with still images or low visual activity, or during quiet audio passages. You can change the duration by up to 5% with predictable results, but even up to 10% in some cases.
Dolby Digital output
Create content with Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus multichannel audio for the big screen, home theaters, and the web. Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus are high quality, widely-supported formats which have the internal smarts to reconfigure automatically for other channel configurations (e.g. stereo). Not only that, but YouTube and Vimeo now support Dolby Digital streams.
JPEG 2000 MXF support
Deliver MXF-wrapped JPEG 2000 content for broadcast and other workflows requiring the format. JPEG 2000 is a visually lossless codec that is quickly emerging as an industry standard, and is a specified video essence format for IMF packages.
User Interface refinements
Customize the highlight brightness in the user interface and find user settings fast in a familiar Preferences panel layout.
And much more …
New QuickTime channelization lets you save time and streamline your rendering by exporting multiple audio output configurations in the same QuickTime file, including stereo and 5.1 channelization. Media Encoder also gets new ProRes Libraries for improved ProRes performance including faster 64-bit decoding (Mac only). Improved Creative Cloud publishing makes it easier to render content to your Creative Cloud folder, including non-default folders.
