DuME v0.1.5 |
Released Tools


DuME – a fast, versatile and easy-yo-use Free and Open Source Media Encoder.

DuME uses FFmpeg for transcoding, which makes it very fast and versatile, and it even adds other features not available in FFmpeg (like DWA support for EXR files).
DuME is also able to render and transcode Adobe After Effects projects.

Read the documentation for installation instructions, especially for use with After Effects, and Linux AppImage.

Just watch how fast it is!

This show the actual launch time of DuME, no cheat!
This shows how long it takes to transcode a 4s mp4, in high quality.

The goal of DuME is to be as easy to use as possible even for beginners, without any compromise on functionality for advanced users.

To achieve this goal, the development of the application follows these guidelines:

  • The User Interface has to be both intuitive and nice-looking, as well as fast.
  • Transcoding to standard formats (mp4, PNG…) is straightforward, thanks to carefully hand-crafted presets.
  • The most common parameters (resolution, frames per second, codec, quality…) can easily be set through the user interface
  • Advanced users can add any other parameter available in FFmpeg thanks to the “custom parameters”, or even input their own commands through the included command line.
  • Common parameters and Custom parameters can be saved as easy-to-use User Presets.

Already Available Features

  • Transcode any audio or video file, from any format supported by FFmpeg to any other format supported by FFmpeg.
  • Easy presets for: mp4, wav, PNG, EXR, Quicktime HAP, GIF… – evolving list.
  • Transcode to and from Image Sequences (PNG, EXR…).
  • Mix Media files (e.g. add sound to an image sequence).
  • Easily render After Effects projects and transcode to any format supported by FFmpeg.
  • Render/Transcode queue, work in progress, possible with command/batch files thanks to the command line interface.
