Portfolio 2016
Release Notes

Final version: Windows - 2.5.3; Mac - 2.5.3

Installing Portfolio

All editions of Portfolio share the same installer. To start the installation process, double-click the installer icon and allow the installer to guide you.

Installing Media Engines

By default, Portfolio includes a built-in media engine. With additional Portfolio Media Engines, you can offload and distribute media processing.

To install the Portfolio Media Engine, double-click the installer and follow the prompts.

Since your Portfolio installation uses the built-in media engine, the Portfolio Media Engine installer does not allow installation on the same computer as Portfolio.
