  1. 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

  2. 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,…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Multiselect Sony MXF clips source settings only change the clip which you right click.

    When you select multiple Sony MXF clips and change the source setting to S-log from rec 709 only the clip which you right click will change its source settings, all the other will stay at rec 709, seems like a bug to me.

  6. Adding an option to export animated GIF's in 60 fps.

    Having to export things in 50 fps via the Animated GIF option gets close to perfect, but 60 fps is the dream option. GIF Sequence at 60 fps doesn't work for any of my project, as it works its way on 6 fps and puts the total time of the GIF to about 10x longer.

  7. Allow me to adjust volume of chime when queue finishes

    Just a simple thing, allow me to raise/lower volume of the chime that indicates the queue is finished.

    I use headphones, and while the queue is going I'll jump back into working on a timeline, the clips usually are quiet because I haven't done an audio mix, so up the volume goes...and then the queue finishes and my ears get shot by the chime.

  9. Let AME skip .mxf filenames in metadata

    When converting .mxf videomixdowns, AME takes the filenames from the metadata inside the .mxf. For my vfx workflow,I would like the converted video to have the actual filename of the .mxf.
    Would be nice if this was an option.

  11. CBR is not really CBR

    CBR is not real CBR.

    With every CBR settings in media encoder, final export always has the lower data rate rather than the chosen data rate.

  12. Bug: loudness normalization does not work with multiple outputs

    Hi,
    I noticed, that the effect "loudness normalization" does not work properly when rendering one source to multiple outputs at the same time. I have 2 outputs (both h.264 and aac audio) and added the "loudness normalization" to both outputs, but with slightly different settings. The results are brutally different from the renderings with only one output at a time, but with identical settings. This really got me ******* my head, for I couldn't figure out my mistake and had a tight schedule. It would be nice to render to more than one output with stable results!
    Best, Normann.

  13. better default settings

    I'm super lost and upset about the removal of the h.264 quicktime codec from after effects. Also, super unhappy that I can't render quicktime prores on windows. Since the work flow has been explaned to me by your adobe care twitter specialist that we must use Adobe media encoder for h.264 and the default settings are garbage maybe make the default more like these settings https://bit.ly/1ShdNKR better yet throw out the legacy codecs and give us something as good as ProRes!! Thank you!

  14. Upload one video at a time

    I have received loading errors when loading every clip at the same time, maybe because the loading speed of each video slows down when dividing the speed for the different videos.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. /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.

  19. Import of image sequence .exr to clip is not using fps set in preferences, always import at 12.5 fps

    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.

  20. Fix render stalls!

    Please make Media Encoder not jam up when the computer goes to sleep. I leave renders over night, and its very problematic when I come in in the morning to find that my renders stalled when my machine went to sleep. Please fix this!
