  1. Allow the user to set options for after the encoding queue is complete (restart, shutdown, sleep, close Media Encoder, etc.)

    Considering how long rendering/encoding/conversions can sometimes take, it'd be fantastic to allow the user to set an option for what happens after the queue is complete.
    There should be no need to have your computer running all night when Media Encoder finishes the queue two hours after you call it a night.

  2. honor the background of composition

    honor the background of composition. cause media encoder changes the bg to black from the bg color we set in after effects. for we have to use a solid layer which is sometime inconvenient. we can do that but it would be better if you consider this.

  4. I want you to add a function to specify the behavior such as sleeping or shutdown after rendering is completed.

  5. Add Rec.2100HLG as an export option to H.265

    I think if Adobe could somehow add Rec.2100HLG as a Mastering Display Color Volume (Color Primaries) Export option for HEVC/H.265; like how it's an option with QuickTime, it would make everyone's lives better! I have a threadripper 3970X so I don't care if it's software or hardware. Please Adobe, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Add Rec.2100HLG as an export option to H.265 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
    Rec2020 just isn’t the same and doesn’t show up as HDR on YouTube.

  6. UI変更。スクロールによる自動パネル最小化。

    UI変更。スクロールによる自動パネル最小化。
    Media Encoderをワークスペース変更で使いやすく、シンプルに変更しました。更に書き出しプリセットの設定を改善したいです。現状は、書き出し設定の形式は一度選択するとパネルが開いたまま邪魔になり、煩わしいです。パネルが閉じた状態が使いやすく設定が捗りますが、常時閉じていては変換の際の事故に繋がります。

    なので流し見をした後、そのままスクロールにより下へ移動した際に書き出し設定のパネルが自動で閉じるような機能があっても良いと思いました。是非ご検討よろしくお願いします。

  7. Can you make a feature in media encoder shut down when finished exporting?

    I some times leave some exporters overnight and I always wanted this feature since my first overnight render.
    Please (if you are going to release this feature) reply and give me a release date?
    Thanks.
    Sincerely, Liam.

  9. De-Interlacing as setting in export dialogue

    When you get an interlaced graphics file for tv and have to do an online version in progressive you need to transcode it with the best de-interlacing possible

  10. Start queue automatically becomes un-ticked in Preferences

    As per title. I've had this bug for a long time, including after a completely clean Windows and Premiere/Me install.

    Regularly the "Start queue automatically" preference becomes un-ticked.

  11. Errors when attempting to upload to YouTube

    I recently updated Media Encoder (14.0.4) from a previous version of Adobe Media Encoder 2020. I was using the YouTube Publish option in the Export Settings which was working fine in the previous version. After updating, I can no longer upload. I am logged in, and the channel is showing, but now there are no playlists showing anymore. The Playlists dropdown just shows "none". After encoding, the upload fails. When looking at the logs I see that there is a quotaExceeded error. However, I do know that my personal quota has not been exceeded. I have tried to sign out,…

  12. ACES

    Yes, very soon I hope to see some development about integrating ACES 2065-1 in Adobe Creative Cloud. PPpro, AE, Photoshop, AME, etc. It is a must for color management. Thank you

  13. Adding color Metadata tags to Rec 709 files

    AME is not able to export Rec709 Color Metadata like the Color Primaries and Color matrix to exported files. These information are crucial for interpreting the footage correctly in a color managed workflow. Up till now, i am using Resolve (free!!) to burn that information into my files. Could you pleas add this functionality? that'd be great for professional workflows.

  14. Launching Lightroom resets shared media cache location for Pr, Ae, Au and Me

    Hi,
    By simply launching the latest Lightroom Classic (9.3), it will set the shared media caches locations for Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition and Media Encoder to the default Lightroom video cache location.

    /Users/{USERNAME}/Library/Caches/Adobe/Lightroom/Video

    Even though Lightroom's own media cache location might be custom set to something else.

    Running the latest app versions available on MacOS Catalina 10.15.5

    Does this also mean that the rather small cache size limitations usually set in lightroom now apply to the video editing apps shared cache too? Will Lightroom also delete cache files from Pr, Ae, Au, Me ?

    This bug has been reported…

  15. /documents prefs + iCloud sync now causes hard system crash

    because Adobe stores your prefs in ~user/documents I noticed on multiple occasions my computer consistently crashes when encoding. After moving the prefs and symlinking the folder out of the iCloud sync location it has fixed the problem.

    Import of image sequence .exr to clip is not using fps set in preferences, always import at 12.5 fps and shows the wrong colors especially in 2019 version.

  18. BUG: 2020 does not read 23.978 timecode

    2020 cannot create TC Burn properly for 23.98 footage.

    AME 2019 can. Same file. I have to use AME 2019 to make proxies and TC burn videos. Sad face.

  19. Allow custom fps for H264 videos

    for some reason H264 in AME is not able to spit out 16fps...Is there any good reason that it's not possible to have this limitation. We do online games and play out simulations and animation to preview as H264 videos, but have to render them with 15fps which is inaccurate and can cause problems.

    Let's set the fps setting free to accept any custom fps!

  20. Media Encoder reduces CBR on software mode

    When encoding in software mode at 40 Mbit/s CBR, the encoder roughly halves that number (20,3 Mbit/s) even though it should be set to 40 Mbit/s.
    When doing the same thing using the hardware encoder, the bitrate is a solid 40 Mbit/s.
    This seems like a significant bug, particularly when encoding 4K video, since the hardware encoder can't handle bitrates above 60 Mbits/s.
