  1. Creative Cloud timer to short

    I have a bunch of videos being converted to smaller files. I run them when I'm not in the office. Well, the thing is every little while the Adobe window pops up asking if it is still me and I have to click "continue" to stay signed in and every time the window pops up the Adobe programs stop what they are doing so only a couple videos get done. The sign in window is messing up our work flow. It is going to be a real pain if all semester you have to stay with the computer or come…

  2. Save queue function for Encoder. So we can save on one machine and open up on more powerful rendering machine :-)

  3. When sequencing two Gear 360 dual-fisheye videos AME injects VR Metadata even though "Video is VR" checkbox is not selected.

    See This wasted a whole day of rendering because even though I visually verified that the "Video is VR" checkbox was unselected, it still rendered with VR metadata.
    Steps used to recreate:


    1. Take two Gear 360 (2016) videos and drop into AME. See droptostitch.png

    2. Verify that Export Settings->Video->"Video is VR" is unselected without making any changes.

    3. Observe that the video is set to render as "Match source - high bitrate". At this point if left to render it will render with the "Video is VR" metadata injected. See result.png

    4. To fix this issue you currently have to go in and…

  4. Make it stop randomly pausing making proxies of HEVC 4k

    Ingesting and making proxies of iPhone 4K/30 video is unusable.

  6. Append custom file name on export

    I would like to append a custom name to the end or beginning of a file name on export. Yes, I know you can select an option saying "Append preset name to filename on export", but I don't need this all the time. It would be much simpler if this was an option that is chosen within the preset itself. This would create much more flexibility when exporting.

  7. Media Encoder 2019 freezes everytime I change by quality for a After effects render

    For the new Adobe Media encoder 2019 13.02 It always freezes up and crashes if I change the quality of my after effects render. Could the adobe team plz patch that up so it could run smoother and not do that by any means.

  8. App for Media Encoder to send progress status/updates to your phone

    App for Media Encoder to send progress status/updates to your phone so you know when it's finished processing footage. This way, you can leave your computer to do the work and be notified when the job's done or is nearing completion.

  9. Show estimated Time for FTP Upload

    It would be great if i could see how long the upload to FTP Servers will take, because sometimes the files will be directly downloaded and i need to tell how long it will take.

  10. when media encoder finishes a file allow the user to say where the ORIGINAL should go (currently its a long-date-stamped folder)

    Media Encoder puts all original media in ugly folders, it would be nice for example if the file could be put in a new folder as the same name of the file or even a user specified folder.

  11. Distributed Rendering

    The Creative Cloud suite needs the ability to use other resources connected to the same network for distributed rendering.

    Installing a small program on other connected machines would allow the primary machine to use the available CPU/GPU and memory of connected machines to speed up render/export duties.

  13. Watch folders with subfolders

    Watch folders should be able to also watch and encode from subfolders. Having all footage in one folder or having to create multiple watch folders is very inefficient and impractical when dealing with a lot of footage.

    I would also like to be able to use Media Encoder to automatically render small HEVC backup files of all new footage to be sent to offsite backup. Setting my whole video project directory as a watch folder with subfolders would allow this; the output folder would be easy to back up.

  14. image overlay blending mode

    Blending mode selection under the image overlay settings when exporting in Media Encoder would be great! Opacity percentage alone just doesn't cut it :) Thanks!

  17. Apply Preset names to file

    Once I finish an edit in Premiere I need to encode 27 files from the sequence. I've created 27 presets in MEdia Encoder. My question is, can I add a "name" to each preset that would be show in the files name as well?

    Example

    original file name: RaceCarV3.mov
    new file name based on WebM preset: RaceCarV3-WebM.webm

    Anyway to do this? pleeeeeessseee!!!!!! make this happen

  18. Get Media Encoder to respect all fonts from Premiere Pro.

    Media Encoder CC 2019 doesn't respect my client's proprietary font which works fine in Premiere Pro, but instead replaces it with a generic font. Highly annoying and time consuming to discover this in the middle of a long batch export. Had to do them all from Premiere.

  19. Automatic naming of outputs

    Naming rules for files and folders.
    As we have presets for encoding preferences, such should be for naming convention of files and the automation of creating new folders.

    for example:
    For the "save to" folder I selected: D:\Projects\MyMovie\
    Enecoded file, JPG SEQ named: Scn1_####.jpg
    and third place output in the outputs list
    with a QT preset named "QTpreview":

    A naming rule such: \%FileName\%index_%FileName.ext

    will save as: D:\Projects\MyMovie\Scn1\3_Scn1.mov
    *Underscore and numbers should not be included unless
    a different rule is used.

    A naming rule such \%index\%preset.ext

    will save as D:\Projects\MyMovie\3\QTpreview.mov

    More rules can be used such as date, Time code extra. …

  20. Unable to produce frame

    Since upgrading from 2017 to 2018 we can not use the Media Encoder batch processing feature any more. After 1 or 2 processed videos Media Encoder fails and we get the following error message:

    Export Error
    Error compiling movie.

    Accelerated Renderer Error

    Unable to produce frame.

    Writing with exporter: QuickTime
    Writing to file: R:\5760-Cineform\Incoming\ATM00442-Australia-Kangaroos-on-Beach-5760x2880-29-97fps-Cineform-2-Min-Col-Stereo-Sound.mov
