  1. PLEASE allow custom destination paths for each preset respectively

    We constantly have to encode one commercial sport to multiple markets (20+) across the US. Each market has it's own video specs. It would REALLY be a time saver to have each preset go to a predetermined destination, instead of all going into one folder then having to sort them out. Please?

  2. Improve Handling of Watch Folders, Image Sequences, and "Source" Folder

    Many times animations are rendered out in image sequences, and while the watch folder implementation is helpful to transcode to other video formats, the system has one critical flaw:

    Currently, if you import an image sequence into a watch folder, and there are multiple output presets associated with that watch folder, only the first process completes successfully. Any other processes after that fail to transcode - since the source images have been moved to the source folder and are no longer available in the watch folder.

    It would be awesome to improve/implement the following:


    1. Allow the user more control and…

  3. Add Distrubuted Processing, Export with multiple computers

    Similar to Compressor on macOS — add the ability for users to queue and export a Premiere Pro timeline on another workstation(s). Editors can be liberated to work on the next project as the last finishes in a queue on another computer.

  4. Overall queue estimated remaining time

    It would be great to have an estimated time remaining for a whole batch of videos. Currently the remaining time is only displayed per output node in the Encoding Panel.

  5. Change Name of "Source" Folder when using Watch Folders

    When using a Watch Folder, ME moves the original file to a folder called Source and places it under a sub-folder named with the date and time.

    This means that locating the original file requires knowledge of when it was processed. Not a big deal when managing only a few files, but a huge pain for a large number of files, particularly when multiple editors need to locate those files.

    At a bare minimum, I would like the be able to set the sub-folder name to the same as the original file. Appending a "_#" tot he folder name in…

  7. Watch folder/image sequence/waiting user controlled image count

    Watch a folder where image sequences are rendered but wait a user define image count before processing.
    ex : watch a folder or sub folders >if watch folder or subfolder have x files then start batch processing this folder

  11. Media Encoder using up all RAM and crashing my computer on batch exports

    Media encoder always worked fine for me up until the first 2018 CC update. Since then AME has been pretty close to useless. AME will use up all of my machine's RAM, (64gb) no matter how much I limit or increase the RAM usage within preferences. I've set all of my cache and memory folders to an external drive and I've exhausted every option to try and address this issue both on my own and with the assistance of adobe customer support and nothing works. The latest update of AME did not fix the issue either. It is killing the…

  12. Automatic selecting of outputs

    Selecting similar outputs based on their position in the Q:
    FOR EXAMPLE: In the Q there are 3 files, every file has 3 outputs:
    1. User select 2 Files.
    2. User click on a button or keyboard shortcut to enable: Select Similar Outputs by Index"
    3.User Click on First output
    4. AME select all first outputs of selected files.

    the same, if user clicks on the "Similar" button but selects second output of selected files.

  13. Automatic reading of files

    When reading sequences of files AME Should do it automatically from folders. Choosing one folder and AME will load all sequences it recognize in that folder tree. Like AE but little bit better.

    Maybe even give us a list of formats it recognizes for us to choose from:

    "AME Found files in this folder and its folder tree. please select which files you want to load to the Q and how:"

    name.jpg (read as a seq) choose to: load as seq load as files
    name.mov
    nameB.jpg (read as a seq) choose to: load as seq load as files
    name.png (read…

  14. Full ExtendScript support (with documentation) including Vimeo/YouTube metadata

    After Effects can't export an H264 larger than 2000x2000. When I'm exporting 100 files to AME for 4K YouTube/Vimeo upload, it would be extremely helpful to be able to set the metadata (and other settings) via script. Doing this manually is a beast!

  15. Change Source Range of Selected Queued Items

    I have clips that have in and out set in Premiere Pro CC. I queue in them in AME. I want to encode the Range In/Out not Entire Clip. Currently there is no way to change all of the clips in the queue and I have to open the dialog for each of the clips one by one. Thanks.

  17. [BUG] Importing multiple After Effects compositions requires unnecessary additional steps

    When I open an After Effects project in the Media Browser and drag multiple Comps into the Queue, I get prompted to navigate to the Comp for each Comp that I have added to the Queue. It seems to be a bug.

  18. Footage from my iPhone is being flipped 90 degrees while compressing. Why?!

    I go to look at the footage placed in my timeline and it looks a normal 16:9 look. Yet, while compressing my footage Media Encoder flips my videos upsidedown? Why?

  19. Rendering a sequence from a Premiere Pro project file

    I'd like to be able to set up watch folder for Media Encoder, and to accept sequences from Premiere Pro files (so i send my sequence from my computer, then render on a 2nd machine / server), without having to transfer source files to the 2nd computer.

    Currently only already made videos can be moved to watch folders.
    And sequences within premiere project files have to manually be added to Media Encoder
