  1. Batch Destination/Naming Settings

    Very frustrating that it isn't possible to change the export folder/filenames in bulk.

    Compressor has done this well for years, with the ability to create presets for common destinations and file naming structures.

    Something like that would be super useful.

  2. Media Encoder not uploading, hangs (FTP)

    Bug Report
    Media Encoder CC2019 13.1 build 173 on Mac OS X 10.13.6

    1. Queue a sequence from PP CC2019 to Media Encoder.
    2. Use a preset that has Publish enabled (FTP in my case - account has been tested, and the same preset worked successfully on an earlier render.)
    3. The encoding completed successfully with a good file, but the FTP publish step is stuck indefinitely on "Waiting for encoding" (see picture). I have waited 20 minutes.

    Log attached in reply message.

    Update: After writing this I open the setting and tested the FTP connection.
    AME hanged (beachballed). Let it sit for…

  3. slate

    It would be great to have a slate feature, where I upload a bumper, or slate, or any other custom intro/outro file and have the ability to stitch it uniformly at the beginning and/or end over another clip, or for a Premiere export. Then to bake this into a preset.

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

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

  5. Preferences: determine default transcode/export preset from MediaEncoder for any source's incoming file

    Predetermine the output of MediaEncoder (ME) via "Preferences": ME is not only useful in the Adobe's App ballpark but also very welcome on already delivered files that need to be transcoded. Well, there is a "default destination" one can determine in the settings but there is no "default transcode" to set before one brings in files from an external source (let's say EVS ProRes(HQ) off a multi-cam recording or even an H.264 off any drone) and pre-determine the output setting.
    This should be available in the settings of ME!

  6. 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…

  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. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Allow more than the default 5 seconds when encoding a still image to an movie

    Currently AME defaults to 5 seconds when encoding a jpg to an movie in a batch mode. Any way we could develop over the 5 seconds.

  11. 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!

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    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.

  20. 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…
