How to download and test AfterCodecs Version 2

Download and extract the .zip and launch the installer just like any other Autokroma plugin and official AfterCodecs.


You should only use one version of AfterCodecs at the same time, do not try to use both Version 1 and 2 as there could be conflicts
In Premiere Pro / Media Encoder your previous presets will not be transferred over AfterCodecs Version 2, you will need to recreate them yourself


Upcoming version (BETA) :
    * New internal improvements on containers and extensions :
        - New "AfterCodecs" choice in After Effects format dropdown that has the .ext extension but will change at export time, according to what choice of container you choose in the Encoding popup
        - Container choice and Alpha channel choice in Premiere Pro / Media Encoder has been moved inside the Encoding popup
        - Support for .MKV container
        - Support for .GIF without the previous hack where you had to choose .MOV
        - Support for Audio only exports, very useful for PrPro MultiRender feature with audio clips
    * Now saving all recent rendering logs in a cached folder, so you can send us .log files or inspect them even if you don't use the log writing feature
    * You can now make your exports in a temporary folder, that you can customize in the Settings, before the file is finally being written at your desired original location. Useful if you want to change easily which disk you are writing to while Adobe reads another disk during rendering
    * New option to keep temporary files used when rendering, in case you want to save separated streams created by AfterCodecs when exporting
    * Warning : you should only use one version of AfterCodecs at the same time, do not try to use both Version 1 and 2 as there could be conflicts
    * Warning : in Premiere Pro / Media Encoder your previous presets will not be transferred over AfterCodecs Version 2, you will need to recreate them yourself
