Set up the profile in the following configuration window:

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:


Having chosen the required one, you will need to specify its parameters below.

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.

    Refer to the Tracks Configuration paragraph for detailed description of audio and video tracks configuring.
  • Filename – define the output file name.

    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_icon icon next to the "Outputs" field:


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


    "Empty path" means that the output is not configured yet; press Profile_Editor_browse_icon and 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.

    It is possible to add multiple output locations.
Cinegy Convert supports automatic execution of PowerShell scripts and Dolby® Digital / Dolby® E audio encoding and decoding technologies. Please refer to the Scripting and Dolby Audio articles for details on their configuration.

Tracks Configuration

Press the Profile_Editor_Edit_icon icon next to the "Tracks" field and use the respective command to add an audio, video, or data track:


This operation can be repeated to add one video, one data, and multiple audio tracks, if required. The corresponding track(s) will be added to the "Tracks" list:


The default parameters of all tracks can be individually adjusted, if needed. Press the Add_new_task button to expand the tracks block:


Each parameter of any track can be configured individually.

Format Configuration

Press the Profile_Editor_Edit_icon icon next to the "Format" field of the required audio or video track and choose the desired format from the list of supported ones.

Profile Configuration

By default, the PCM encoder is used in audio profile, and MPEG2 Generic Long GOP encoder in video profile. To change the encoder and/or redefine its parameters, press the Profile_Editor_Edit_icon icon next to the required track field and choose "Edit":


The following window appears allowing you to choose the required encoder from the list of supported codecs:


The list differs depending on the track type (audio or video) being configured.

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

Transcoding Mode

Video track allows choosing transcoding mode to be used for the tasks. To do this, expand the added video track and choose the required option from the "Transcoding Mode" drop-down list:

  • Direct – the file will be transcoded without re-encoding.

  • Encode – the file will be re-encoded.

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