Combine Audio and Video Adobe After Effects
on Feb 26, 2011 at 7:17:00 am

Hi I'd like to export a video in H.264 with sound already in the video. I don't want two separate fies.

I know if I save the ram preview I get sound and video but I want the video in H.264 not AVI

May someone please help me?

It is best not to use AE to generate the H264 file. Instead, render (from the render queue, not export) to a lossless or high-quality file (perhaps PNG or Animation) and use compression software to generate the H264. If you don't have compression software like Sorenson Squeeze, there are some decent free or very cheap ones out there.

I agree with Dave. While you can add your composition to the render queue and render an H.264 video out of AE, it's not a good procedure. Render lossless out of AE and use an encoder to make the H.264.

Adobe Media Encoder's not a terrible choice to encode your H.264 file. :)
