Adobe Media Encoder how to get mov container?

(1/1)

stoker2014:
The source file is shot in *.mov, but when I render in H.264, the output is *.mp4. How to get *.mov?

I want to render to H.264 codec. And if you select QuickTime, it will no longer be H.264.
In general, this probably canít be done on Windows. Or mp4 and H.264 or QuickTime and prores.

Quicktime is only a container, giving you the .mov extension. Inside it, you can have various codecs, h.264 inclusive.
Having said that, you are right about Adobe Encoder. For some strange reason (licensing?), I can't find this option in Adobe Encoder.
I didn't realize it until now, because when I want the h.264 codec in a .mov container, I don't need Adobe Encoder: I can export it directly from Davinci Resolve (on Windows).
See attached.
