Preset Mismatch error message

"The preset you have selected is an encoding preset which is not supported for ingest operations. Please try adding an ingest preset."

 

I just created the proxy preset (using Adobe Media Encoder) that I need to use with my footage, but when I select the footage -> proxy -> create proxies I am unable to select the proxy that is saved on my desktop. When I do so, the above error message flashes on my screen. 

Could anyone help with what I am missing here please, I'm very new to this and still learning everything so would appreciate the help greatly.

It's a three-step process in MediaEncoder.

 

First, you make an encoding preset. Then you make a proxy preset 'based on' that encoding preset. Then you export that proxy preset to the folder that PrPro looks in for such things.

 

And yea, it's more complicated than it should be.

Hello Neil thanks for the reply,

 

I apologise as I'm a complete beginner (watching step-by-step Udemy course videos to learn PrPro) and have little experience doing anything this technical on a computer.

 

I have made the encoding preset already. Can you please further explain the next steps you mentioned: 

"Then you make a proxy preset 'based on' that encoding preset. Then you export that proxy preset to the folder that PrPro looks in for such things."

 

Thanks again, Daniel

In MediaEncoder, in the typical layout, the presets are in the lower left quadrant. There's some icons at the top of the panel.

 

One allows you to make a new thing ... as I recall, same icon to make the original encoding preset, but this time take the option to create a proxy preset. For which encoding preset it will be based on, choose the encoding preset you made.

 

Then Export the proxy preset. You kinda hafta dig to find where the proxy presets are stored in PrPro. It should know where they are and just put them there, but you do have to navigate to the right folder.

 

This all is explained in MediaEncoder's Help files, you can get there from the Me Help menu.
