    Adobe Media Encoder and Matrox Mini Max

    I recently bought the Matrox MX02 Mini Max.   The "Max" version was only $150 more, so I bought it to take advantage of the H.264 acceleration.  I understand the Mini Max's H.264 feature does not work with MC or Sorenson, but I'm hoping future versions of MC and/or Sorenson will support this.

    According to Matrox's site, I can use the Mini Max's H.264 encoding with Adobe Media Encoder.  

    (1) What's the cheapest way to obtain Adobe Media Encoder?   I can't find anyway to purchase this separately.   I've read on some sites that it comes with Photoshop, while Adobe's site does not verify this.  

    (2) Can Mini Max/Adobe Media Player encode from QT reference exported from MC, or do I need to export from MC as same-as-source?

    There is only one way that I know of and that is to buy one of the suites, you might also like - want to use - need applications like After Effects , Photoshop and Audition

    Is it included in Photoshop?    I currently use Photoshop Elements for simple tasks like creating alpha channels.   I'd get the full version if Media Encoder is included?

    on there website it says you can use the "max" export direct from MC, just not sorrenson. So it should work w/o needing Adobe's Encodr.

    There's a catch.   Direct-from-MC export using the "Max" is only available when using MC on a Mac, not on a PC.  Sad

    I don't understand why?

    It likely has to do with how the quicktime engine utilizes 3rd party codecs.

    From what I understand, the cheapest way to get Adobe Media Encoder, would be to buy Premiere which comes with AME

    ...it believe it also comes with After Effects, which is something I'd use more than Premier.

    AE is my first tool, this together with Avid of course , and should be in every editors toolbox IMO
