Set up the profile in the following configuration window:

Profile_Editor_File_Storage_dialog
Note
In case of errors detection, e.g. blank mandatory fields, a red indicator appears specifying their number. Hovering the mouse pointer over the indicator displays a tooltip describing the problem(s).

From the "Container" drop-down list, choose the desired multiplexer to be used for converting among the available ones:

Profile_Editor_Container_list

Having chosen the required one, you will need to specify its parameters below. Multiplexers of different types have different configuration groups with various parameters to be specified.

Generic Configuration

The "Generic" configuration group is similar for all multiplexers. The following parameters should be defined here:

  • Name – define the multiplexer name.

  • Description – enter the description of the multiplexer, if needed.

  • Tracks – specify audio and/or video tracks to be used in multiplexer.

    Important
    Refer to the Audio and Video Tracks Configuration paragraph below for detailed description of audio and video tracks setting.
  • Filename – define the output file name.

    Important
    To automate naming, the filename macro is supported. Refer to the Macros article for details about macro templates.
  • Outputs – add the output location(s) for the converted file by pressing the Profile_Editor_Edit_iconicon next to the "Outputs" field:

    Profile_Editor_Outputs_menu

Use the "Add output" command to add the output location; press Profile_Editor_plus_iconto display the added output:

Profile_Editor_Output_nonconfigured

"Empty path" means that the output is not configured yet; press Profile_Editor_browse_iconand browse for the output location. It can be marked as "critical" meaning that the failure of this output should cause the transcoding session to abort. Set the "Is critical" option to mark the required location as critical output.

Note
It is possible to add multiple output locations.

Audio and Video Tracks Configuration

Parameters of video track and multiple audio tracks used by any multiplexer can be individually configured by pressing the Profile_Editor_Edit_iconicon next to the "Tracks" field:

Profile_Editor_adding_tracks_menu

Use the "Add audio track" command to add an audio track or "Add video track" to add a video track; the corresponding track will be added to the "Tracks" list. This operation can be repeated to add one video and multiple audio tracks, if required:

Profile_Editor_Multiplexer_Tracks

Add_new_task

Press this button to expand the tracks block and change the default tracks configurations, if needed:

Profile_Editor_Multiplexer_Tracks_expended

Each parameter of any track can be configured individually.

Format Configuration

Press the Profile_Editor_Edit_iconicon next to the "Format" field of the required audio or video track and choose the desired format from the list of supported ones which are shown in the table below:

Encoder Configuration

By default, the PCM encoder is used in audio profile, and H.264 encoder in video profile. To change the encoder and/or redefine its parameters, press the Profile_Editor_Edit_iconicon next to the required track field and choose "Edit":

Profile_Editor_Multiplexer_Tracks_Edit_command

The list of supported codecs differs depending on the track type (audio or video) being configured. The following encoder types are currently supported:

Audio Encoders Video Encoders

AAC

Apple Pro-Res

MPEG audio

AVC-Intra

PCM

Avid DNxHD

DV

H.264

H.264 NVidia GPU

HEVC NVidia GPU

IMX

MPEG Generic Long GOP

MPEG XDCAM EX

MPEG XDCAM HD

MPEG XDCAM HD422

Note
Some multiplexers have the additional configuration groups with extra parameters to be specified. The list of fields depends on multiplexer type.

Having defined all the profile parameters, press "OK"; the configured profile will be added to the list.
