QuickTime H.264 Mov files with exports
As we have done for years, bring back the QuickTime H.264 Mov. (not Mpeg 4) for exporting
Antoine Autokroma.com (Independent Developer of AfterCodecs, BRAW Studio, PlumePack, Influx) commented
You can export H264 in MOV with AfterCodecs Exporter for Adobe CC
there is a free 500 frames trial, and H264 is free when resolution is <= 720p

PIX requires h264 in .mov wrapper. Please could this be addressed. PIX is used very widely.
Colin Brooker commented
Why is this being ignored? In addition to all listed below, I can't have multiple tracks of uncompressed audio on .mp4
This needs to be addressed!

Agreed. PIX (used by the entire film and tv industry) is very specific about what it can handle and it will only take an H264 wrapped in a quicktime. This needs to be resolved OR adobe will lose clients to AVID which supports that export.
Yes, software should be there to serve users' needs, not dictate them!
Like others here, I am trying to deliver something to a major US broadcaster... not my decision of what to use, theirs.
David Routt commented
This is another area where Adobe is ignoring what professional users need, without explanation or sensible workarounds. We are starting the edit process on a 13-week half-hour episodic and we cannot meet their Quicktime h.264 export needs without having to jump through unnecessary hoops unless we ditch Adobe for AVID or go back to FCP. Ridiculous.
Sterling Robertson commented
Agreed. This is huge. PIX works with H264 .mov.
I'm working on a show for Hulu and I cannot use AME anymore. Adobe, you've made your software unusable for basically all features.

what should i do than i need h.264 mov for exporting right now. is there anyone have a clue.
if there are someone why do we need this. the industry neeeeeeds it. .. not me.
Colin Brooker commented
Quicktime is dead, that's a fact. But .mov is not, it's just a wrapper. Apple still supports h.264 in a .mov wrapper, so why can't Premiere and Adobe apps export it? We use PIX to share cuts and they have a very specific spec for upload that requires .mov.
I rather not use CC 2017, because I've already run into issues on High Sierra getting exports done in this required spec. I've had Encoder just hang up.
If Apple Compressor and FCP can export h.264 .mov files, Premiere should also be able to.

Lots of clients require Quicktime with H.264, is not a question of using mp4 instead of QT, it's required by our clients, we NEED this option!
Josh Snyder commented
Agreed, sound mixers have only ever asked me for Quicktime H264.

I am working for a TV station using Quicktime h.264 for the entire system, which is now adobe makes it difficult to use.
Adobe is catering too much to Apple users. I run a video company that uses a Windows PC and Sony A7sii workflow, which when RAW, are H.264 files. Just because Apple doesn't like H.264 doesn't mean you should abandon a fulyy functioning and useful codec. Remember that people use custom PC's running Windows too, without access to AppleProRes422.
I have to use the 2017 Media Encoder as well for my TV station Deliveries. Hopefully we wither get back Quicktime h.264 or the stations change. The latter probably won't happen for another 10 years...
This is extremely important for the industry I am working in (advertising). The TV stations (all across the nation) we are sending our spots to won't accept anything else other than Quicktime H.264 Mov files. There should at least be a legacy option for it, because right now we are having to export ProRes files, and then encode those files with the 2017 version of Media Encoder in order to get the H.264 version.
We need this because many TV stations don't accept .MP4

But why would anyone need this? Same thing, different file extension.

QuickTime needs to die, already. Adobe made the right move here.
bring back the main codecs of the player, PNG, JPEG....e.t.c
