All Content must be HD: 1920 x 1080 (HDTV 1080i).

Check which version of Adobe Creative Cloud you are using, then download the preset, and import it into Media Encoder to use the correct DOM File Ingest Settings for your Export.


Quick Facts for Exporting:

  • H.264 - MP4

  • 29.97 Frame Rate

  • 48k Audio ACC

  • 1920x1080 - HD

  • Limit to 8-10 Mbit/s Data Rate

  • NAMING YOUR FILE - VERY IMPORTANT: DO NOT use numbers at the beginning of your filename and DO NOT use any spaces or symbols (except for dot and underscore).

HELPFUL TIP: Adobe Media Encoder is found to have a more detailed export process. It shows you more information regarding the status of your video and also allows you to go back to Premiere and continue to work on another project while Media Encoder exports your file.


Exporting Directly with Adobe Premiere

  • Open your Adobe Premiere Pro project

  • When you are ready to export, select the Sequence panel so that it has a blue outline

  • Select File > Export > Media (⌘M)

  • Click on the icon of a folder with the arrow, then locate the downloaded file and select it. Then click Open.

  • You should see DOM Preset 2017 V3 HD, in the Preset Browser Window under User Presets & Groups​ and you should have all the correct settings for ingesting!

  • Click on the Output File to change the name and location of the file. Do not start your filename with a number or use spaces or special characters in your file name.

  • When you are ready to export, Click on the Export Button. Then you will see a small window pop up with the export status.

  • After the Export is finished, your file will be ready to use (and ingest) from the SAVE location that you designated on the Output File.



  • Once your Video is fully Exported to the Ingest Drive - Take a break.

    • The system will take 10-15 minutes to check your video. If your video has been exported with the correct settings, it will show up in the Dropdown list in Submit a Show page on the Denver Open Media website.

  • Troubleshooting Problems

    • If your video doesn’t disappear from Ingest

      • Let staff know immediately.

      • If your video never appears in the Dropdown list, it likely has the wrong settings, or your video may not have a unique file name or is not the right file extension. Most typically, the frame rate or frame size is incompatible with our system. Check your settings and try again - we are happy to help!
