Rendering out two files simultaneously?
on Jun 26, 2020 at 2:22:58 pm

So I have a program that's an hour long and my deliverables are a prores422 file and an mp4. Currently I've been rendering them out one at a time in PPro but how can I batch render these simultaneously, once I have a master on my timeline ready to go. I want to create a preset for this since I have to do it weekly.

Thanks!

Set one to ProRes then export via Premiere/AME then press Queue.
Rinse and repeat but with different export settings.

Could I get it a little more detailed and step-by step, please? Assume zero experience.

You won't be able to set a preset for rendering off two files, but it's not a long process. There are two ways to do it, both of them pretty easy.

Hit Command-M to open the export dialog. Set up all the settings that you would set for your ProRes version, including the name and export location. When it's all set, instead of pressing "Export," press "Queue" and Premiere will send the project over to Adobe Media Encoder.

At this point you have two options to duplicate the sequence as an MP4 export.

Option 1: go back to your timeline, hit Command-M again, and set up the MP4 export. Hit Queue, and Premiere will also send THAT to Adobe Media Encoder.

Option 2: in AME, duplicate the project (click on it, then hit Command-D) sitting in the Queue section, and click on the Preset settings (the second column). Set up your MP4 settings. You also have the option to save a Preset in AME with your preferred export settings, which will show up in the Preset Browser on the lower left of the AME window. If you do this, you can duplicate the export, and drag your preset to the second one from the Preset Browser, and your second one will be automatically configured to the export settings in the preset you created.

Then hit the Play button in the upper right hand corner. AME will crunch out both copies (or as many things as you've added to the Queue), from top to bottom.

As a bonus, it does this export in the background so you can keep working on other things in Premiere. You can even keep working on the project if you're just bouncing out a rough cut for review--AME gets a copy of the project in its current state, so whatever changes you make in Premiere after Queueing a timeline don't get transferred to the export.

Simple enough that even I should be able to follow it, thanks Blaise. :-)

[Blaise Douros] " There are two ways to do it, both of them pretty easy."

There is a third way that is even easier to execute once you've set it up.

Step 1 is exactly as you've stated :

[Blaise Douros] "Hit Command-M to open the export dialog. Set up all the settings that you would set for your ProRes version, including the name and export location. When it's all set, instead of pressing "Export," press "Queue" and Premiere will send the project over to Adobe Media Encoder."

However, make sure the Export Location folder is specifically made for this function, because it will be used as a Watch Folder in Media Encoder. Lets call this folder "Source Files", (obviously you can name the folder anything you want, and it can be on any permanent drive you have.)

In Media Encoder you set up your Watch Folder to export your h.264 file from the ProRes master you just made. This will happen automatically as long as Media Encoder is open, which it will be because you just opened it to make the ProRes file.

Once this is setup, you only have to select your timeline in Ppro, use the Export Media command and Que the file to Media Encoder and specify the "Source Files" location. Media Encoder will make the ProRes, see it in the watch folder and then automatically make the h.264 copy, then place both files in sub folders and clear the watch folder. All this can happen in the background as you continue working in Ppro. The only negative is the generation loss of making your .h264 from the ProRes instead of from the timeline - this loss is close to undetectable.

Here's a link that demonstrates how to set up a watch folder in Media Encoder.

I would open AME
In Preferences check parallel encoding
File/Add Premiere Pro Sequence
Right click on the file in Queue and duplicate.
Set format and preset for both .
Enter

In Media Encoder (after you've sent the sequence there), don't duplicate the Queue item - instead, select the encoder setting (in this case the H.264 setting) without opening it and press CTRL/CMD-D. Now you have two settings which will run simultaneously. Change the second one to the format and preset you want and press Go.

Hey, I learned something new this week! I wasn't aware that duplicating the project increased the render time so much for multiple outputs.
