Need rendering ProRes on Windows?
Do you want to directly process a small file size, high quality H264 directly from the processing queue After Effects?
AfterCodecs can do so without requiring any intermediate file!
ProRes LT / Proxy / Normal / HQ and even 444 that supports Alpha Channel.
x264: the best implementation of H264 / AVC, surpassing both Adobe Media Encoder as QuickTime H264.
X265: files are 30% lighter than x264 and also supports a resolution of 8K.
RGB x264: x264 like but avoid the YUV color space, the better to store channels in a separate video (UV map, Alfas …) only for advanced users.
