How to export HAP codecs from After Effects, Media Encoder and Premiere Pro ?
AfterCodecs are new native plugins for the whole Adobe CC Video suite, working on both Mac OSX and Windows. It brings fast and efficient codecs to After Effects's render queue and a new "format" choice in Premiere Pro and Media Encoder's "Export" Window. It supports HAP codecs, with Snappy lossless compression and CPU chunks for multi threaded decompression, without any resolution restriction and it even provides new algorithms for better HAP quality.
Here are two tutorials with screenshot to guide you through exporting HAP with AfterCodecs :
An update also brought numerous improvements over the default options offered by the original work of Vidvox the creators of HAP :
AfterCodecs' Hap and Hap Alpha supports three different algorithms where you can choose your own tradeoff between quality and encoding speed : the two first algorithms are from ffmpeg and original Vidvox work. The latest one, the slower but with the best quality is a new one we developed so that you get the best quality in HAP out of your Adobe Projects !
AfterCodecs now supports any resolution without previous limitations (before the resolution had to be a multiple of 4 which is not very convenient in some situations)
AfterCodecs offers more feature than other exporters : for example you can export all your audio channels from Premiere Pro and they'll reimport the same way in your PPro projects, keeping all the audio information you have to store. Another example, you can tag the output video with VR360 and VR180 metadata !
