  1. Audio passthrough when making mp4 files

    Allow audio passthrough when making mp4 files. I'm using mp4 export to create very small proxies for multiple editors who are working from home and I can't use Media Encoder because some source footage has 4 channel audio and Media Encoder won't allow mp4 exports with 4 channel audio. I've been using Apple's Compressor when I come across this problem. Apple's Compressor allows audio passthrough for mp4 files. It's also a problem when drone footage has no audio, I would have to apply a custom preset with no audio while doing batches and this would be cumbersome so I'm using…

  2. mpeg 2 (VOB) 16:9 files that are stretched to fill a 4:3 frame are cropped by Media Encoder and PP when imported. Bug?

    Footage contained on DVDs and encoded with a VOB extension isn't displayed correctly in Media Encoder or PP (The stretched image is cropped on import). Therefore I cannot convert the VOB files to a more regular codec like mp4 for use in my editing projects. I use third party app VLC instead.

  4. Allow User to change to Constant FR

    There is a big issue with iphone footage coming in with Variable FR resulting in skewed audio/video throughout the adobe suite. Right now the only fix for it is to upload the footage into third party software and encode the footage to have a Constant FR, which is pretty ridiculous given that we have a media encoder for Adobe and if I wanted to be using open source software, I wouldn't be paying for the adobe suite. I think Media Encoder is the obvious software solution for this but it affects so many of the adobe suite programs that it…

  5. Allow Download of Legacy codec and Features

    I'm editing a feature documentary, and many of the archives are made of old DV footage. Unfortunately I can't import any of the material either directly into premiere or into ME to convert into a supported format. Adobe should have kept the codec at least for media encoder. I can't imagine the amount of editors around the world who've had similar frustration and with the monthly subscription service as it is, a creative cloud user, shouldn't have to turn to or pay for additional 3rd party support for a feature that was a part of the older editions. It's absurd…

  6. Adding Remuxing/Multiplexing option to export with copy codec

    Hello Everybody,

    I would like to ask if there could be an option added maybe to premiere or especially to Adobe Media Encoder to be able to Remux files to different containers.

    Option also without transcoding just copy the CODECS from input file and change only the container.

    Example there is one really important remuxing that is needed and there are just so limited the options for someting so simple.

    In Broadcasting Centers there are still a lot of equipment that only support Transport Stream (TS), as there is only option from Adobe for MPEG2 and not for H264 which…

  7. Improve quality of the AVCIntra Ecoder

    We just had an issue during QC: there was an obvious low quality shot in our AVCIntra100 file export.

    We came from a ProRes4444 HD master file and used Premiere 15.1.0 and AME to encode the braodcast deliveries. But the result is a low detail image with artifacts and loss of details.

    We use the "ARD-ZDF HDF02a-1.1" Profile and just changed the Scan Order (to Progressive) and enabled the "Render on Maximum Depth" and "Use Maximum Render Quality" checkbox. We are on MacOS 10.15 and tested it on 10.14 and Premiere CC 2020 too. Same result.

    We did the same…

  8. Allow the creation of 100p Proxies

    I shoot 4K, 100p, 4.2.2 10-Bit footage with my Sony A7SIII and would like to be able to use Proxies, but this appears to be impossible as the max supported is 60p. This seems a crazy limitation to me, can 100p and 120p be supported for proxies please, please, please!

  10. Bug: Timecode for .scc caption file is offset by 35 to 45 seconds

    When generating an .scc sidecar caption file, the timecode is always off by 30 to 45 seconds. We used AME to send a student newscast to air on a local TV station and the timecode has been consistently off. This year, they could accept embedded caption streams. There was no offset for the embedded stream.

    I've attached a file showing the timecode offset from an original file with captions embedded and an AME processed .scc file.

  11. Improve proxy setting - H.264 with PCm audio channel type, not just AAC only.

    Improve proxy setting - H.264 with PCm audio channel type, not just AAC only. Proxy failture attach, cause audio channel type.

  12. No Scenarist Closed Captions in AME 14.8

    Windows 10 - 32GB RAM - GTX 1080

    AME 14.8 is missing the option to embed or create sidecar Scenarist Closed Caption files.

    I have used this feature on a regular basis. Tried with my normal export preset in premiere for captions. Even recreated it. Upon queuing to AME, it changes the captioning format from SCC to MCC.

  13. AME altering closed captions format in 14.8 MXF exports - Renders Unusable for Broadcast

    Windows 10 - 32GB RAM - GTX1080
    When I export a show with embedded closed captioning as an OP1a MXF from Premiere Pro 14.8 to Media Encoder 14.8, the captions are being changed from .scc to .mcc. I am exporting an HDCAMHD 50 MXF that has 608 and 708 captions that were imported from Scenarist files (.scc). When I go to the captions tab in PPro, I am selecting "Embed in Output File." Below that, the greyed out boxes confirm that it is a .scc file. I can even check "Create Sidecar File" and .scc is still one of the…

  14. Aspect ratio SAR and DAR missing in exported MP4 file container data

    When encoding MP4 files from Media Encoder or Premiere Pro the exported file is missing the SAR and DAR values.

    This can be easily check with ffprobe and this command:
    ffprobe -v error -showformat -showstreams file.mp4
    [STREAM]
    index=0
    codecname=h264
    codec
    longname=H.264 / AVC / MPEG-4 AVC / MPEG-4 part 10

    codedheight=1088
    closed
    captions=0
    hasbframes=2

    As you can see above the encoded file shows N/A values instead of the expected SAR value 1:1…
