How to Encode Large Size MP4’s With Media Encoder

TipTuts shows How to Get Around MP4’s Frame Size Limit by Using Its Successor in Media Encoder

MP4 and H.264 are great for getting video file sizes down while still keeping some of the quality. Working with larger frame sizes in today’s world leaves H.264 out of the picture. The codec and only encode up to 4k. What if you wanted to encode a larger frame size with Adobe Media Encoder?

This quick tip tutorial from TipTuts shows how this is possible. Well, not with H.264, but using the newer H.265, or HEVC (High-Efficiency Video Coding). Adobe Media Encoder can easily translate the video into H.265 using some common HEVC formats.

Known as the successor to H.264 or MPEG-4, HEVC offers about double the data compression at the same level of quality. Pretty astounding.

  1. HI! I encountered a weird issue with H265 and premiere pro 2017. i edited a 8 minutes job in 5912×1080 made by motion graphics chunks i did in AE and encoded in HEVC. All was flawless, and just amazed by the low size of the files and the smooth editing.Then when i rendered the whole job out of PrPro,i found out that the file was a black frame with audio but only ONCE i imported back into PrPro!! Outside of it it’s ok on VLC both on PC and Mac. BUT if i export a shorter chunk, it’s ok. I tried several settings, CBR vs VBR, no way to work this out. Any clue?Thanks! Love your stuff!
