  2. Premiere Pro + AME broken dynamic link in 12.1.2

    Dynamic link from After Effects to Encoder works fine. Dynamic Link from Premiere Pro to After Effects/Audition works fine. Premiere Pro to Encoder DOES NOT. After clicking queue in PPro, it opens up Encoder like it's sent something, but nothing pops up in the Queue. The Create Proxies dialog box that pops up when sending proxies to Encoder disappears much too quick instead of actually processing like usual all the videos.

    This is only been a problem since I updated to the latest Premiere (12.1.2) and Encoder (12.1.2). I'm trying to create a lot of proxies from Premiere Pro. Going…

  3. estimate file size for GIF

    I would like there to be more options for optimizing a GIF output, something to top the photoshop "SAVE FOR WEB (LEGACY) > GIF" output option. Media Encoder is so good at smashing down ginormous files to great looking shareable files, i imagine your team could do wonders for making the (admittedly archaic) GIF format sparkle.

  4. Export 'Entire Sequence' should be the default, not 'Sequence In/Out'

    About 90% of the time, I want to export the entire sequence.

    This is especially irritating with large batches of exports as there is no way (that I've found) to change all exports to 'Entire Sequence' in one go. I have to chance them all one at a time.

  5. Option to automatically restart failed tasks

    Add an option in the Media Encoder settings to automatically restart jobs in the queue that were aborted for some reason by placing it at the end of the queue. This will help redo a task automatically when the hard drive was disconnected for a little second due to hardware issues.

  9. SECURE FTP!!!!

    For the love of... please update media encoder FTP transfer to allow transfer over Secure FTP (SFTP)

    You all have not updated FTP transfer software since 2010! Its time to get with the program and allow for better security. Without this feature the automated system in Adobe does not work and files have to be transferred manually or you have to run no encryption at all which is not a wise idea for anyone and puts the network at risk.

    Adobe please address this. This is a very common issue for broadcasters and other media companies.

  10. Make it reliable for rendering AE compositions

    AME is not reliable when it comes to rendering for AE.
    Time Remapping fails, some fx do not work, straight alpha is not available.

    It would be great (and usefull) when AME renders exactly the same as AE.

    Otherwise it is useless as a standalone renderer (as promised).

  12. Appending _1 to output

    Can AME check for overwrites whenever a format is changed instead of leaving _1 appended to the file name?

    I often export a preview mp4 and a ProRes file for my clients. Those have different extensions, so they're not going to collide. But if you duplicate an output to change it, it appends 1 to the file name to avoid a collision of names, but then when you change it to another format and extension AME should double check whether or not it needs to add that 1. It'd save me a step to not have to change the output…

  13. Publish video straight to We Transfer

    The ability to send a video over WeTransfer once an export has finished. Much like the way you can publish to YouTube or an FTP server etc.

  14. 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.

  15. Export to Cineform UHD i slooow especially in win10

    Exporting to Cineform 4K/UHD in win10 (with appropriate encoder installed) gives sub 1fps encoding times with almost no CPU being used :-( and basically one week to encode one movie.
    Especially a joke when on the same install can fire up Davinci Resolve 15 and get 25fps+ on the same task actually using the resources of the computer.

    Also encoding from MXF to cineform no matter what resolution is also a sub 1fps ordeal even for SD for some reason??

    fix Cineform and make it available as default with you own working implementation of the code, its open source and…

  16. Media encoder distorting audio timing bug

  17. Publish to AWS S3 bucket

    It would be helpful for our workflow to be able to publish an encoded output to an AWS S3 bucket. (From there, it is ingested into our CMS.)

  19. Warn the user when a video is being encoded with a banner over a clip

    Sometimes a clip needs to be analyzed (warp stabilizer) and shows a blue banner (or warning label) over the clip, or maybe a clip has some sort of other banner (eg. red banner over a clip when you try to stabilize a clip that is a different resolution (must be nested). The problem is, when the video is exported these banners are exported too and there's no warning or prompting that this overlay exists. AME should warn the user prior to encoding (or immediately following encoding) that this blue or red banner exists AND give the user the timecode where…
