  • Batch Encoding?

    Is it possible to do a batch encode?
    I have 50 seperate 2 minute cut clips on a timeline, can I encode them off the timeline to .wmv files or similar as individual clips in one go?
    Or do I have to encode them individually.

    Thanks

    Hi Mark - don't I recall you from Liquid days? The answer is "Within limits".

    Provided you don't change the setup of the timeline you seem to be able to batch encode from any sequence on any given timeline. What you can't do ie what doesn't get set within the batch encoding setup, are any changes of track selection on the timeline.

    For example, we typically lay separate soundtracks to the same video depending on whether the result is for the client's licenced use or for posting on the Internet ie broadcast. We've found it's not possible to encode the two versions (which involves switching which sound tracks are active) in the same batch.

    I assume you're familiar with the batch encoding process itself - if not please come back.

      If you add a sequence to the batch list it will encode as the sequence is set when you do the batch encode, not as it was when you added it.
      The way round it would be to duplicate the sequence in the bin, then change the second version and add that to the batch list as well as one based on the first timeline.

        Thanks guys
        Yes Philip, I do remember you from the Liquid days.
        I will do seperate runs for the different encodes that I need.

        But I do not know how to set up a batch encode process?

        Any tips?

        Thanks

          Very simple. Just click on add to Batch export, complete the parameter selection as normal and save - the file goes directly into the batch export list.

          When you've completed all your selections, click on Batch Export. That opens the complete list and enables you to start the process. There's an indicator showing how much of each clips has been completed.

          The only thing that threw me when I first used it was that the batch export list contains not only the selections you've made as above, but any completed ones from previous jobs as well. A quick glance will show you that the "new" items are checked, the completed ones not, but I find it easier and clearer to delete the completed clips from this list so that only the current jobs are shown.

          Hope that helps.

          Best regards
