  1. BUG - Media Encoder file size export is inconsistent with multiple versions of the same file.

    I have 1 video file and 27 different languages to export for that file. Queue in ME and export, almost every file is a different size. When exporting from Premiere, all 27 files are the same exact size. Interestingly, the last file exported by ME is the size of each file exported by Premiere.

    I wouldn't know if the issue is caused by the XML created by Premiere for ME to read or if this is an issue with ME. My files need to be within a 1 frame duration to pass. As of now, the best way to achieve…

  2. Add Custom Output File template

    Allow the user to create different Output templates (like in AE), using fields/properties like :

    Custom text

    Time Hour/Minutes/Seconds
    Project Name
    File Name
    Relative path
    File extension
    Width
    Height

  3. Problems when exporting/transcoding DV AVI files - Render/transcode stalls

    I opened several old project containing DV AVI PAL footage. I noticed that all project with DV AVI PAL has problems when exporting from AME 14/15/22 and Premiere Pro.

    The export (or transcode) stalls, continues, stalls, continues, etc, etc until it´s done. This does not happen with another source codec such as Blackmagic Design Motion-JPEG or Prores.

    An easy way to reproduce:
    1. Open Premiere Pro and create a DV PAL 4:3 timeline.
    2. Create and add Bars and Tone and place it on the timeline
    3. Make the Bars and Tone 1 hour long
    4. Export to AVI >…

  5. moving sources and encoded outputs

    Hi, I would like to see an option in AMEs preferences to turn off that moving of sourcefiles. This makes it almost impossible to set up a workflow that relies on creating versions and using Proxies in After effects, since they are moved away. Just laeve everything where it is and create a textfile to check if a clip has been rendered already or not. Maxon does it very well with Teamrender. Please!

  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…

    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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Allow users to encode videos WITHOUT administrator permission

    I have been facing this issue ever since I was hired by my company. For some odd reason I cannot batch encode my videos without the lamb noise coming up and saying "Encoding Failed." This is pretty aggravating considering I have to encode multiple videos at a time and without Media Encoder I would have to manually encode each video through Premiere. The error log states that I don't have permission to create or delete the output file which is total BS. I will have the log attached.

  14. Have the Creative Cloud desktop app have a look at Media Encoders' watch folded

    It might be an idea to have the Creative Cloud desktop app have a look at Media Encoders' watch folded and start running Media Encoder as soon as a file is added to the Watch Folder.

  16. BUG!!! Media Encoder preset with timecode defaults to show frame count rather than TC

    This seems to have been introduces with the latest update. I have a preset to render an H264 file with file name and timecode visually burned in. Before updating it worked fine. Now it shows a number(I assume framecount) rather than TC. If I switch to generate rather than source, then it shows TC. But if I save the preset on "generate," it saves the starting time as well, so the TC is not accurate. If I create a new preset, the first application works as expected, but once I apply from the saved preset it fails in the same…

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
