  2. Media encoder - coloured render list

    I think it would be great if you could add a colour label to your renders in media encoder, just like what automatically happens in After Effects when you have given your comps a specific colour.

    This would help the user differentiate different sources/output when queuing up batches of videos.

    It would be even better, if media encoder inherited the colour when rendering comps sent from After Effects.

    Attached is a quick mockup. It would also be nice if this was taken a step further and the source name text was coloured too, or at least have an option in…

  3. Wrong words in Swedish version

    I noticed that you use the wrong words in the Swedish version of Media Encoder. Files that are waiting to be transcoded are marked with "Färdig", and files that have been transcoded are marked with "Klar". Well, in Swedish - those two words mean the same thing: "Finished" or "Done". You can use "Färdig" as a word to describe that something is "ready", but in this case the usage is unfortunate as it can be interpreted wrongly. It would be better to use "Väntar" (Waiting), as they signify that the files are waiting to be encoded.

  4. Add "duplicate" source menu item when stitching

    Nowadays, when I'm rendering small animation loops, I use Media Encoder to generate a bigger loop (10-15s from 2s clips), to be used in social media.

    I'd find it VERY practical to have a simple cmd/ctrl-D to duplicate an existing asset, and not having to drag and drop on the stitch button or in the stitch source panel.

    I could even create a stitching preset with intro/outro and drag and drop items…

  5. the rendering in media encoder was stuck at the middle then not currently encoding

    I've been experiencing a render error which is whenever I export my composition/file from after effects the rendering at first was good until it gets at the middle one and then it was already finished even the render is not yet finished then when I go to my files the exported video was not there. I KNOW THAT I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO'S EXPERIENCING THIS KIND OF PROBLEM SO PLEASE FIX IT BECAUSE I HAVE A LOT OF EDITS THAT IS IN THE QUEUE.

  6. Closing the window quits the software

    Whenever I close Adobe Media Encoder CC 2021 by clicking the red "X" on Mac, it quits the software, instead of just closing the window and letting the software run in the background. None of my other softwares (including Adobe's) do this, and it's pretty annoying as I'd like to always have Media Encoder running (or idle) in the background, but I most often don't need its window to be showing. Thoughts?

  7. Adobe questionnaire pop up window.

    So I filmed about 80 4K videos, added them into Premiere and selected 'make proxy', selected the destination and hit ok and walked out of the room expecting all these vids would be done by morning. I wake up and it didn't even start the process because Adobe pops up a window about the 1-10 question, stopping the process. Now I'm several hours. behind. Here's my idea...ask the ********* question in an email or text.

  8. Add simple keyboard shortcuts for the queue

    Specifically for reordering files in the queue; to my knowledge, the only way to reorder queued files is to manually drag them into place. It would be nice if there were basic shortcuts for shifting a file (or multiple files) up or down in the queue without having to drag them around. Or even a shortcut for placing a file at the top/bottom of the queue.

  9. La sauvegarde de la file d'attente ne peut pas être ouverte dans l'onglet fichier. perdu aussi a la fermeture de ME

    ajouter a l'onglet "fichier" :
    "ouvrir une file d'attente"

    Pourquoi ne pas "associer" une file d'attente dans le(s) projet(s) projet PR, AE, ... ?

  10. Make it possible to rename aliases in a logical way

    It's hard to find out how to rename an alias - if it is possible at all.

  11. Make changing presets and destinations logical.

    AME is very contra intuitive regarding to choosing a preset for multiple queue items. There is an incomplete popup-menu, and we can not drag a preset to all selected items at once.

    -Add User Presets and Aliases to the Popup Menu

    -When multiple items are selecting, set a preset for all of thos by double clicking it in the Preset Browser, or dragging it to one of the selected queued items.

  12. Companion app

    How about a companion app for the phone that syncs to your encoder so i can keep an eye on the progress of files & their encoding? It would help me not stay at the office waiting when i could be outside while renders are chigging along.

  13. Media Browser: See within Folder Hierarchy

    Add an option to see footage from the top of a folder hierarchy. This would be a great addition to the AME media browser for adding footage from multiple locations, quickly.

  14. Please provide correct estimated rendering time when audio normalization is enabled

    Estimated rendering time goes way off when you select some audio processing - like EBU128 normalization. It can show you hours, when in reality it might take 20 minutes. And then, when rendering video after audio is done it can show you that 4 minutes left, when in reality it will take 35 minutes. Everything ok is when you don't use audio normalization, estimation is around accurate.

    Thanks

  15. Don't connect to dynamic link server before opening settings for a dynamic link render queue item

    The "connecting to dynamic link" box often takes a long time. Instead, let the settings page load instantly like it does for a non dynamic link item. Settings can be available right away, and the video preview can display a "connecting to dynamic link" message until it establishes the connection. Most of the time, a user does not need the video preview.

  16. Droppable menu bar icon MacOS

    Hi, I find myself dropping movies that need to be converted on the menu bar icon at least a few times a day. But that doesn't work, although it seems so intuitive. Any chance that could be implemented?

  18. I want to make presentation usb drives.

    I want to make presentation usb drives. You pop a DVD into a computer and a menu comes up with the videos etc that are on the DVD and the user selects. I can not find the same option for usb drives, which is amazing to me.
    I have ten grandchildren and I would love to be able to send them individualized usb drives that they can put into a computer and they would be presented with a menu from which they could choose which media they wanted .

    Thanks,
    Rick Adams

  19. Add Date Modified column and Sorting to Media Browser tab

    This seems like it would be a no-brainer. Having the newest files at the top of the list reduces headaches and crawling through long lists of media, particularly if you aren't the one controlling the file structure.
