Frequently asked questions about the encoding process.
What video formats does AME support?
AME can convert video files of all types. Most widely used formats are available, such as H.264, HEVC (H.265), MOV, WMV, ASF, MPEG-4, and MP4, as well as AVI and MKV on Windows devices. It also supports less common formats such as FLV. Explore all supported containers and extensions or learn more about different video formats. Adobe also releases support for new cameras and file types within days of their launch.
Can I export to multiple file types at once?
Yes. If a video clip is queued in AME, you can drag and drop other presets or file types onto the clip, and AME will render each format to your specifications. AME also supports parallel encoding, which enables you to render multiple files in the queue simultaneously. Most online video converters or free video converters only work on one clip at a time.
Can I convert audio files in AME?
Yes. AME can act as an audio converter and supports many audio formats. From WAV to AAC, choose the right format for your audio.
Can I convert still images in AME?
Yes. You can convert to JPG, PNG, GIF, and more within AME.
