Just a quick note to let you know that I’ve added 16 lectures of Adobe Media Encoder training to my existing course on Udemy, Video Compression for Web, Disc and PC/TV/Console Playback. You can see the modules added below.
I’ve also launched a separate course entitled Mastering the Adobe Media Encoder, which contains only these modules. The new course will cost $25, compared to $59 for the existing compression course.
Basically, if you’re a relative novice and need some training on compression in general, get the existing course. If you know compression reasonably well, and just need to learn how to use the Adobe Media Encoder, get the new course.
Both courses will include an e-Book you can freely download here; this is the Table of Contents.
Basically, I wanted a fast way for those taking the course to get up to speed on fundamentals like codecs and compression, terms like resolution and aspect ratio, and the various other topics covered. While specific to the Adobe Media Encoder in some ways, most of the terms are generally applicable and the document should prove useful even if you’re using a different encoding tool.
Here’s the list of lectures in the Adobe Media Encoder training added to the course.
Lecture 1: Overview of the Adobe Media Encoder Workflow.
Lecture 2: Setting Preferences in the Adobe Media Encoder
Lecture 3: Working with Presets with the Adobe Media Encoder
Lecture 4: Working Efficiently in the Adobe Media Encoder Queue Window
