Preset and Conversion Profiles Configurations EnterMediad 9.x

Within EnterMedia 9.x you can define the conversion profiles you want to have in your DAM for every asset type. You need to create a new Transcoding Conversion to fit your needs, it is always recommendable to create your custom transcodings and NOT changing built-in transcoding which Emshare is shipped with (Learn Why?).

To create a New Transcoding Conversion we recommend starting by creating a new Preset Configuration which you will be using in your Transcoding. Go to Settings | Preferences  and click on Add New Configuration.

Preset Configuration

Let´s say you want to create a Preset Conversion for an 800x600px Image sized:

Transcoding Conversion

Once you have your Preset Configuration Ready, you can create the Transcoding Conversion. Go to Settings | Preferences and click on Add New Conversion.

 

You can create a Transcoding Conversion as follows:

  • Define a Conversion Name.
  • Media type 
  • Transcoder. Use ImageMagick for images, FFMPEG for videos and audio  or Libre Office for documents.
  • Download Format. Use a unique file download format for each Transcoder, you can use the suggest variables for the field.
  • On Import. Turn on this option if you want to generate this Conversion when file is imported to the Dam.
  • Display on Convert-Crop page. Will show the Conversion in the asset page.
  • Crop to Aspect Ratio.

 

Now you can visually verify if the Transcoder is correctly setup in the Transcoding view:

Every time you change a parameter value you need to save the Transcoding Conversion in order to make it read the new preset data.
