  1. Allow media encoder to add custom prefix/suffix to output file

    Specifically allow media encoder to add either custom text or source file name as a prefix/suffix to the output file. In my work my After Effects project are given job numbers and the output file also must be named with the same job number to keep track of files.

    We have also created templates to ease with production, currently our output comps simply start with "XXXXX" and we do a batch rename after rendering is complete. But with custom prefixes/suffixes we wouldn't have a need for that step.

    This could be added as an option to encoding presets or to…

  2. Force encoder to finish it's job

    It just stops encoding for no reason, the previous encoder would have been fine, this has happened on 2 occasions since the recent update.
    Please fix as this could seriously harm my work in future.

  3. email batch notification

    It would be nice if the app could send an email to a specified address once processing finishes

  4. Select source audio tracks

    When I get rushes that have 4 tracks of audio I want to be able to choose the tracks that I want to process and mute in AME to create dailies. Much like Modify Clip > Audio Channels in Premiere Pro.

  5. Add option to copy video to additional location after encode is completed

    This software is called media ENCODER so technically this doesn't really fall under it's rubric but, since one can queue multiple encodes to different locations it would also be helpful to have post encoding options such as the ability to copy a finished job to multiple locations, this allows one to automatically output to all needed locations, but also avoid unnecessary re-encoding. It's just a convenience thing.

    I am often encoding to an external drive to be used as a delivery medium, but that is not the location that will be used for archiving of the project. A given encode…

  6. Improve quality for batch exports out of premier through media encoder.

    I am losing a lot more quality doing batch exports out of premier and into media encoder. I am losing a lot of my font weight. So words that were visible are not visible anymore. This happens in the chain from premier to media encoder. I know this because I will export out of premier and then compress with media encoder, and I don't have the issue any more. But for now I have to export individually out of premier and not use media encoders batch process, for sake of quality. All exports were made with the same bitrate and…

  7. Allocate media exports across different computers over network

    While Media encoder is super helpful , it is a bit limited with network options. I have 3 machines available to me and they all run Adobe Media encoder and premier pro. Our media library is on the local storage so you can open project files from any machine.

    At the moment , if I want to utilise all of my machines(for decreasing export times) , I have to open the same Premiere Pro file and then prepare different sequences for export on each machine individually or access the sequence through each computer's Media encoder.

    It would be great if…

  11. Project Consolidation

    Please add Premiere's 'Project Manager' feature to Media Encoder. Would be great to be able to upload Premiere Projects and select sequences to be consolidated and transcoded through Media Encoder which would free up Premiere for Editing.

  12. When a premier project file is placed in the watch folder in Media Encoder, the sequence is automatically loaded and rendered. How to exclud

    When a premier project file is placed in the watch folder in Media Encoder, the sequence is automatically loaded and rendered. How to exclude the render of only a specific sequence?
    For example, how to exclude nested sequences from render

  13. Remove black bars automatically

    Many videos I get are with black bars on the top or bottom.
    "With the power of Adobe Sensei", detect black bars, crop the video, save in the same format and quality.
    It can be a preset, it can be a checkbox in a preset or it can be a script.
    optional: add a XX pixels inset from the crop for sharper edges.
    It must be "drag, run, see folder". If so, it can be a killer feature.

  14. Allow Multi Instance Encoding

    AME does not use all cores, because of unknown reason (OpenSource encoder can do this). I have an 32 Core CPU (Threadripper) and only 5 Cores used.

    Either AME should scale encoding processes (without GPU) to more cores, or AME should allow to start multiple instances (without GPU) to use the other cores in parallel.

    In my case encoding into DNX 4K takes only 5 cores with only 200Mb/s and waste the other cores with doing nothing. Encoding takes two times than the length (approx. 30fps). I could render 6 streams in parallel without any problems, but i can't and…

  15. Import multiple sequences non natively

    When you press "Edit" > "Preferences..." and un-check the box where it says "Import sequences natively", you can only import one sequence at a time which is quite time consuming if you are exporting stock footage.

  16. Old AME files remover

    It would be great to have an integrated tool or menu option that allows you to access a list of all the .AME files stored in your computer so that you can remove them easily when you don't need them instead of having to manually look for each file.

  17. scripting

    I run AME from the command line and specify path to the script that contains the code for render of the PremierPro project. AME opens, the specified project loads into the render queue, and the rendering doing.

    But there is no way to assign framerange/timerange in scripting.

    I studied the manual AME Scripting Guide (Release 1.0, Jul 30, 2020). And I found it impossible to programmatically set the frameRange or timeRange for render queue object (Batch Item Object).

    Including such a function in scripting will allow one video to be calculated on several computers of the render farm. Very Important!

  18. watch folders

    I just tried to use a watch folder to convert 139 4K videos downsampled to 720P, and it put all my 4k source files in separate folders! Now I have to pick each one out and put them back in my media folder to edit with. what kind of a stupid idea is that? please fix!

  19. Publish directly on Facebook Business

    At the moment, publish video to Facebook, goes straight to live, although business' prepare their posts in advance and using Facebook Business for both organic and paid posts. Publish here is best for this sense. Thank you, Sérgio.

  20. Edit multiple files with the same start time

    Often I will have over 50 clips that need to start at the same timecode. The ability to be able to highlight all clips and set one start time instead of having to go through and set 50 individual in points.
