New online training workshop helps Adobe Creative Cloud producers efficiently encode top-quality video for streaming, mobile and optical media
The Streaming Learning Center announces the immediate availability of an 80-minute training course entitled Mastering the Adobe Media Encoder CC. The course costs $25.00 and is available now at Udemy. Check below for a special offer for new students.
The training has three sections. Section I, with eight lectures, details how the Adobe Media Encoder integrates with suitemates like Premiere Pro and After Effects, and program operation, including setting preferences, scaling and cropping, deinterlacing and watch folder operation.
In seven lectures, Section II provides specific encoding recipes for encoding for streaming, encoding for uploading to YouTube and other user generated content and online video platform sites, and encoding for mobile playback, DVD and Blu-ray, and adaptive streaming. Within each of these topics, the training reviews codec and target-specific details that explain how different configuration options impact quality, compatibility and playability.
Section 3 is a 75-page downloadable eBook covering compression fundamentals in five major areas; codecs and compression, choosing file parameters like resolution and data rate, bitrate controls like constant and variable bitrate encoding, frame types like keyframes, and I-, B-, and P-frames, and streaming delivery concepts like single file and adaptive streaming.
“Students will learn how to use the Adobe Media Encoder efficiently and effectively,” author Jan Ozer commented. “And also the fundamentals of codecs and compression, and the specific requirements for all relevant target platforms. After completing the training, students will be able to produce top-quality video files with the Adobe Media Encoder, whatever the target.”
