Adobe Media Encoder

Adobe Media Encoder is a standalone encoding application that is employed by programs such as Premiere Pro, After Effects, Soundbooth, and Encore. When you specify export settings in the Export Settings dialog box and click OK, Premiere Pro sends the export request to the Adobe Media Encoder. When you select File > Export > Media, the Export Settings dialog box opens in front of the Premiere Pro user interface.

You can also manually import one or more Premiere Pro sequences into the standalone Adobe Media Encoder queue to encode them into one or more formats, or to take advantage of other features.

When the standalone Adobe Media Encoder is rendering and exporting a composition in the background, you can continue to work in Premiere Pro. After a sequence has been added to the Adobe Media Encoder queue, the most recently saved version of that sequence is the version that is rendered by the Adobe Media Encoder. For more information about using Adobe Media Encoder, see Adobe Media Encoder Help.
