How to render a WebM
- Make sure Adobe Media Encoder, After Effects, and Premiere are closed.
- Head over to here to download the WebM plugin.
- Once downloaded and installed, open the source file for the pack you are wanting to edit
- Make the color changes to the pack thru "MASTER CONTROLS" or "ESSENTIAL GRAPHICS"
- Once all changes are made, you will select the items you wish to export in the "Project" window. (TIP: Hold CTRL + LEFT CLICK you will be able to select each item you want to export)
- Click "File" -> "Export" -> "Add to Adobe Media Encoder queue"
- Once Media Encoder opens, you will see the projects you exported in the right side window
- In the "Format" category you will see "H.264". To the left of it you see a drop down menu where you will select "WebM". Once selected, click "WebM" and you will be presented with the "Export Setting" for that element. Scroll down until you see "Include Alpha Channel" and press OK. You will need to do this for each on that contains transparent elements. If a project does not contain any (IE: Backgrounds and some Social Bars) you can leave them at "H.264"
- Now that you have configured your Project(s) to the output you desire. Press the green arrow (start queue) in the upper right hand corner to start encoding.
We've found that some users who's software is set to something other than English have trouble opening the After Effects files without "expression" errors. If your software is automatically set to a language other than English, then it's possible the the issue could be solved easily by forcing AE to open in English instead of another language. This can be done by just creating an empty text file named "ae_force_english.txt" and save it in your Documents folder.
