Often I use Premiere to transcode or export media where the final size isn't the main problem.

I'm used to the ultrafast preset from ffmpeg, what I wonder is.. it is possible to pick the same options that I generally use: QuickTime as container and H.264 but set also the ultrafast option ?

My pc is very slow and this would be a lifesaver for encoding times.

  • That's 3/64 and 2 of those are heuristic matches, not positive IDs. Test using your local A/V but I doubt it's a problem.
