  1. JPEG export is ridiculously slow

    I'm exporting a 4K .MOV to a 5 fps JPEG sequence (I need the frames for a photo scan) and Media Encoder is taking about 1 second per frame to write JPG files to an SSD??? I would expect the whole process to go a lot faster than real time. Seems lame.

  2. AI optimized versioning

    I am thinking that it might be possible to use AI to scan a previously rendered version of a file, and as it's rendering a new version/revision, if any of the frames from the new render are identical to a previous version, the AI would pull those identical frames from a previous version so only the new frames would have to be rendered when producing a new version. This would make it easier and faster to make revisions theoretically.

  3. Afterburner

    Please add support for the Apple Afterburner Card if it’s not already implemented automatically when handling prores media.
    Ideally, Media encoder would be able to use the transcoding skills of the AB card when transcoding from h264 mxf media TO prores on the encoding side of things. Let the GPU and CPU handle the decoding of h264 but accelerate the encoding of prores through the AB card. This could be a massive time saver!

  6. Export / encoding issue only solved by switching to 2 pass VBR. Never an issue before

    Issue with exporting a vid file only resolved by switching to 2 pass VBR option. Never a problem before this week?

  7. Encoding Audio Problem

    I opened a short m2ts Bluray video to convert to h265 (HEVC) and see how it works!
    First problem was that the audio level was reduced so much!
    A video encoder must not change the audio in anyway if not explicitly set!
    Also I hope you use Fraunhofer for audio<MP3> encodings...

  8. Make renders GPU Intensive

    When rendering a queue, I check in Task Manager, CPU is on 100%, GPU around 0%!
    Many people have good VGA cards, while most of them own 7700, 8700 or 9700 at most, even having a few more CPU cores is not an advantage if compared to GPU based rendering.
    So why both Media Encoder & Premiere just use CPU to render/export rather than GPU?!
    In Media Encoder last version > Renderer: Mercury Playback Engine GPU... is selected by default, but no effect, am I doing anything wrong?

  9. Media Encoder hanging because of 100% CPU

    Various threads on here about poor performance in Media Encoder. System Manager in Win10 1907 shows constantly 100% CPU with 88%>>95% consumed by AME.

    See attached file. Some Devs in Adobe don't know how to code ...

  10. NVENC and VCE

    Could you add support for GPU Hardware transcoding technology? Nvidia's NVENC and AMD's VCE technology, either of these would literally allow export times of 4k video at 200Mbps to take as long as the video's length is, rather than succumbing us to literal HOURS of export times for videos that are less than 10 minutes.

    I have combed over the user forums and some of Adobe staff claim that it isn't doable. Yet here is the SDK site for NVENC:
    https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-video-codec-sdk

    This technology has been around since the Kepler era of Nvidia GPUs. Which was 7 years ago since the…

  11. Media encoder takes twice as long to encode a premier pro sequence than exporting it from premier pro directly

    Adobe media encoder does not utilize my systems performance when encoding a premier pro sequence, thus taking a lot longer than it should.

    When i export a sequence straight out of the premier pro software, the software utilizes all my recourses and takes about 45 mins to endode whereas AME takes 9 hours to encode that same sequence using about 20% CPU with spikes!

  12. Improve Media Encoder Performance vs Premiere Pro

    Please improve Media Encoder performance. Rendering via Premiere Pro takes on a specific project 1 Hour. Exporting via Media Encoder takes 3 - 5 Hours. Please fix this. I have searched the internet and there are many people experiencing bad performance in AME compared to Premiere Pro.

  13. Bug in GPU utilization?

    Don´t know if this is the right place for this feedback but when rendering from Adobe Media Encoder the GPU is showing 0% utilization. Did all the usual fixes/tricks but no change. Others experiencing the same issue - https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2625909

    Worked when exporting directly from Premiere (20 seconds) but when using Media Encoder and CUDA 30 minutes. Usually other way around.

    Using a Razer Blade Advanced 2019 with a 2060.

  14. Video limiter not working?!

    Hi, we are a TV production firm using CC apps including Premiere, AE and ME in the most current versions on MacPros and an iMac Pro.
    In our most recent project we exported clips with a Broadcast safe limiter applied via export options in Premiere (rendering via Media Encoder, 103IRE, 3% before clipping), however QC rejected the files. Upon checking we found out that the limiter did not affect the output of the file at all.We tried all the available options, but neither of them did the job. What is going wrong here?!

  16. Make Media Encoder faster!!!

    Just make it faster. 22 h for a 6 min video is so so so so frustrating.

  17. Your latest Premiere Pro update has "rendered" Media Encoder useless.

    Renders that once took an hour now take (huh?) 66 hours. After your latest update of Premiere Pro (May 2019), media encoder takes forever to render.

  20. When encoding with H.264, the sound shifts about 12 ms.

    Regardless of resolution or frame rate, the sound will be shifted by about 12 ms.
    Even if you export from After Effects or convert mp4 directly, about 12 ms of sound will be misaligned.
