Hi all, I'm exploring the Encoder object in the Premiere CEP API (app.encoder). According to the documentation, the Encoder.encodeFile() method wants a path to a .epr preset file.

 

As far as I understand, .epr files are created only when the user exports a preset manually from the Media Encoder app. In other words, it's not possible to use "system" presets (those shipped with Media Encoder) because there's no .epr file for them: they are kind of hardcoded into the Media Encoder itself. 

 

So is the Encoder object usable only with custom presets?

Most panel developers include a select set of .epr files, for approved output formats/settings.
