1. Open the from Applications » Utilities
2. Use the following command, adjusted to your needs and ZIP-file location(s):

zip -s 0 ~/Downloads/ --out ~/Desktop/

How to convert (remux) video files from mkv to mp4

  1. Lauch OBS
  2. Open “File” –> Select “Remux Recordings”
  3. In the left panel, select the .mkv file you want to convert to .mp4 and in the right one set the destination
  4. Click on “Remux”

Otherwise, if you haven’t created the video files yet you can select the automatic remux option in OBS:

Now you can use your footage in Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder.
