.WEBM video format allows anyone to easily create high-detail animations for stickers and emoji 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.
Programs like Handbrake or ffmpeg natively support .WEBM encoding with VP9.
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 videos 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.
