  1. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Allow to change multiple files in queue to specific out put location

    Why, oh why doesn't media encoder allow me to select multiple file sin a queue and set a specific output location? I would think this would be a given especially after how long this program has been around.

    Simply put again: I would/need to have the option to select multiple files in queue and set a specific output location/folder for each file - so allowing multiple output locations for whatever the file requires. I am constantly doing large jobs and multiple revisions on multiple versions of videos. To have to adjust each file separately is tedious and time consuming.

  6. Please add CUDA support back into Media Encoder 2020 for macOS

    Please add CUDA support back into Media Encoder 2020 for macOS. I use a Mac Pro Mid 2012 tower with an NVIDIA GTX 970 and 64GB of RAM. Only being allowed to use Metal as a renderer increases my export time to more than than 4x for the same sequences from ME 2019. I've tried using Premiere with Windows and Boot Camp, but can't properly edit multicam sequences in Windows on this thing because of constant audio drop outs and delays, so right now my best option is to edit in macOS, then boot into Windows for exporting with CUDA…

  7. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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:

  13. [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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. Sort queue options

    Please give me the option to sort the render queue by name, date added, or even video length. Right now, to reorder the queue, I can only do it by dragging processes up and down.

  18. A 'smart fail' option of sorts?

    Can AME offer some kind of 'output monitoring'? For example, often I will have a batch of proxies or sequences queued up to export. Sometimes AME won't fail exporting (give the yellow ! error), it will just hang and stop encoding. This is extremely annoying in its own right, but when it stops early on in an overnight batch encode only to see 4 or 5 out of 20 actually encoded in the morning, it is beyond frustrating that I let my computer run 8 hours doing nothing.

    Can AME offer some kind of monitoring that if it is not…

  19. half input

    Instead of choosing between "same as source" or a custom resolution.

    Id would be great with a simple "half of input resolution" option when choosing resolution

  20. 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.
