  1. YouTube publishing settings add to Playlist error

    Since updating to the most recent version of Adobe Media Encoder, I have been getting an error after encoding when using the YouTube plbilshing settings. The error I receive is "YouTube(WARNING) - Video couldn't be added to Playlist. Error: Video not found."

    The odd thing is, the video uploaded to YouTube successfully, and it was also added to the proper playlist. So I'm not sure why this error is getting triggered. In the logs it's shows that this is triggered after the queue has ended, but before the YouTube link is added in the log.

  4. Parallel transcoding when using watch folders

    When multiple users start transcoding processes the second user who started his transcoding has to wait till the first one is finished. It would be great if multiple transcoding tasks could be worked on simultaneously.

  5. Basic Audio Remuxing Capability

    It would be awesome to be able to add/remove/replace audio streams without having to use other apps.

  6. Drastic Difference in Color Rendering from Premiere

    There is a drastic color difference when exporting via AME, compared with exporting directly from Premiere. See attached photos. I literally changed nothing on the timeline, but it's handled completely differently. This has happened to me twice in the last month, both from h.264 clips and ProRes 422 clips with Lumetri effects.

  7. BUG! Media Encoder Freezes my entire screen, and forces me to shut my computer!

    This has happened many times since I've updated to the latest version of Media Encoder 14.3 (Build 39). I'd place a video in the Queue and hit Play and it will start the first frame and then freeze my entire machine only letting me move the mouse, but can't click anything or use my keyboard to try to force quit or anything, and the only way to get out of it is to force shut off my iMac and restart the machine.

    I've had this issue happen to me over 10 times already!

  8. Warn if proxy preset being used (Audio Bitrate mismatch) will be a mismatch

    Not once have it encoded a proxy from a preset just to have the audio not match the footage audio bitrate. You could make a verifier that looks at the videos to be converted to proxy (when right clicking > create proxy) in premiere to check that the preferred proxy to be used will comply with the project bitrate.

    in another words, make sure the user picks a proxy preset that matches the current project audio in premiere.

  9. Mogrts processed as media offline in Premiere sequence when using Watch folder

    I am trying to export a Premiere Pro sequence with mogrts using the Watch folder in Media Encoder. I've tried several solutions to get this to work, and the only way I have found it to work is if I place the mogrts in the root watch folder. This is a problem because the Media Encoder will recognize the mogrt files and process them in the queue, thus having them moved to the source folder once they have been exported.

    Moving a project folder (e.g. PROJECT1) containing a Premiere project, raw material inside a subfolder (RAW) and the Motion Graphics…

  10. ExtendScript: Get a callback or something similar from Adobe Media Encoder when rendering in done

    app.project.renderQueue.queueInAME(true); transfers the project from After Effects to Media Encoder to encode.
    The render time may vary depending upon the complexity of the render. The function queueInAME( ) returns nothing back.
    There is no way of Extend Script to know when the render task is done.

  11. BUG: stereo audio mixdown stripping channels

    If I provide AME with file that contains 4 channels of audio, when it exports it to H.264 with a stereo audio channel, it strips out channels 3 and 4 instead of mixing them down into channels 1 and 2 as expected. The help file for Media Encoder says "If you choose fewer channels than are in the master track of a sequence or project, Adobe Media Encoder downmixes the audio"

  12. Interpret footage while exporting in Media Encoder

    Some people prefere to change framerates without interpolation, so that no frames get duplicated or deleted. It would be nice if Media Encoder could offer this feature like premiere does on import

  13. Add closed caption embedding support to AME watch folders

    Add closed caption embedding support to AME watch folders.

    File based workflows are more and more common in broadcast, where producers submit finished video and then later get a caption file back. Currently, someone must reopen the Premiere project and put the .mcc captions on the timeline on top of the video as an additional layer. Then export, and use a preset that has captions set to embed in video in AME.

    For those of us with high volume of turnaround, it would be great if we could just put mxf video and mcc sidecar caption file into an AME…

  17. Having the ability to add a fade up and down to/from black in a file.

    It would save the time it would take running a file through my editing program just to add a fade in and out when no other edits are needed.

  18. A simple rotate function would be great! Often we convert phone footage, ant it needs to be rotated 90 degrees.

    Pretty simple. Adding some rotate function to the crop function would be really helpful....and easy I imagine

  19. Fix the LUT selection, PLEASE. Or make some sort of batch process for it.

    Impossible to select a LUT in the dropdown menu of AME.
    Nor to install additional ones for that matter.
    (A quick look to the LUT folder it seems their own *.cube LUT don't show). Even if I convert my LUT to *.itx : it won't work.

    I can't batch process a project lut --or any technical lut, within AME.
    So please, at least give us a workaround because it's making AME and watch-folders completely useless for my use.

    I also see this problem has been raised several times over the years, and no fix in the horizon...

  20. Start frame number when exporting image sequence in AME

    Start Frame number:
    When rendering an image sequence in AME, I need the option to control start frame number - as I have in AE. So that I can correct certain frames, and render them directly into my existing sequence.
