Layer Render Controls :-

Apply plugin on adjustment layer

TIP :- The plugin should be used on an adjustment layer and the in and out point of the layer should be used to notify the start and end of the video. The video can only be rendered if the play marker is on the active part of the layer.

Codecs – VP9, H.264, H.265, DNxHD, Cineform, Prores. Common codecs are provided here. Alternatively you can use Codec Options dialog to enter options for other codecs.

Presets – For every codec, there are corresponding presets available. For 8-bit options, lossless 8-bit RGB video is sent from AE. For anything else, 16-bit lossless RGB video is send out. Some presets also encode alpha channel. The plugin detects those presets and send out 8-bit or 16-bit RGBA video as needed.

Render Separate Audio – Selecting this will generate an extra .wav file with the same root name as the output video.

Codec Options – Click on Display to open a dialog box with currently selected preset. You may change this to use other codecs. TIP :- The plugin selects the AE format based on 8-bit RGB/RGBA or 16-bit RGB/RGBA presets respectively. So you need to make sure your starting preset matches the pixel formats being used.

Delay – The FFmpeg executable is run as a separate process, and the delay value swaps out the CPU for that number of milliseconds so it can run. Do not change this unless you know what you are doing.

FFmpeg Binary – Opens a file selection dialog to select the FFmpeg binary being used. By default the plugin just uses ”FFmpeg.exe” and depends on your system to find the binary in the PATH. Using this popup you can use multiple binaries for multiple renders.

Render – This dialog allows you to select the directory and filename for the output file. The output extension notifies the plugin which container you wish to use.

Download the zxp file. The zxp package has been tested with automated install methods like Anastasiy's Extension Manager or ZXP Installer.

After Effects plug-ins will have a plug-in .aex file and a pdf for documentation. The installer will extract .aex file to the mediacore directory – $mediacoreplug-ins\Prosya\ and the pdf to $userhomefolder/Documents/Prosya/

In windows – $mediacoreplug-ins looks like C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore and $userhomefolder/ looks like C:\Users\

After successful install, Prosya plug-ins will appear under the Prosya folder inside the ‘Effects' menu or under the ‘Effect & Presets' tab in After Effects. If automated install does not work, try the manual installation. Manual installation also works if the plug-in is distributed as a .zip file.

Install 7-zip or any similar unzip utility. Right Click on the .zxp or .zip and click 7-zip->Open Archive.

Double-click on Win/ directory to view the .aex file. Extract .aex file to the mediacore directory – for example, C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore

Double-click on Docs/ directory to view the .pdf file. Extract .pdf file to the Documents directory – for example, C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\
