The Video Sticker format allows anyone to easily create high-detail animations that users can send and share instantly in Telegram.
You can design your animation in your preferred app – but depending on the app’s export settings, you may need an encoding program to create the final file.
Adobe’s Media Encoder requires a plug-in to support .WEBM encoding. Here is a modified version of a plug-in by fnord software that you can install to render your video stickers with Media Encoder.
Windows WEBM plug-in
Windows Installation Path
macOS WEBM plug-in (M1 and Intel)
macOS Installation Path:
After the plug-in is installed, .WEBM will appear in the list of formats in the Queue tab.
On macOS, you may need to go to Settings > Security & Privacy to approve installation.
If it’s your first time working with encoding software, here are some tips that might help:
After Effects projects integrate directly with Media Encoder via File > Export > Add to Media Encoder Queue.
The @Stickers bot lets you quickly publish and manage your sticker packs. Start a chat with it on Telegram and it will walk you through the process. For step-by-step instructions and more information, see this guide.
