    Hi everyone,

    I’m the product manager for Adobe Media Encoder and I’m excited to tell you that – finally! – we’ve added an Auto Computer Shutdown feature. It is in the bottom left corner of the Queue windows, in the beta of Media Encoder, which you can download using Creative Cloud Desktop (see the Beta section on the left side). Beta versions of our products are completely separate from the shipping versions, so there’s no risk in having both versions installed.

    There are a few bugs still in Auto Shutdown. For example, if your Media Encoder job includes an upload to YouTube, we’ll try to shutdown the computer before the upload has completed. The job will continue uploading but then the auto shutdown won’t happen.

    However, we’re definitely ready for you to try out this feature and let us know what you think. More information is available here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-media-encoder-beta-discussions/discuss-automatically-shut-down-the-computer-when-the-ame-render-queue-is-complete/td-p/12386805

    Regards,…

  2. Webm support

    Has webm is becoming an important video format for the web.
    It would be nice Media Encoder support it (from and to).

  3. A simple rotate function would be great! Often we convert phone footage, ant it needs to be rotated 90 degrees.

    Pretty simple. Adding some rotate function to the crop function would be really helpful....and easy I imagine

  4. Merge audio & video into new video.

    Sometimes you just need to shove some audio under a video. And booting up Premiere or After Effects is too much of a hassle. Let us merge audio and video and render that out to a new video.

  6. Start frame number when exporting image sequence in AME

    Start Frame number:
    When rendering an image sequence in AME, I need the option to control start frame number - as I have in AE. So that I can correct certain frames, and render them directly into my existing sequence.

  7. Get a text when an encode/export job is done.

    I would love to get a text or phone notification when a job finishes encoding so I can leave the studio and come back when its done.

  8. Distributed Rendering

    The Creative Cloud suite needs the ability to use other resources connected to the same network for distributed rendering.

    Installing a small program on other connected machines would allow the primary machine to use the available CPU/GPU and memory of connected machines to speed up render/export duties.

  9. Critical bug / Media Encoder 22

    Encoder 22 just doesn't import any projects. When project is sent to queue from After Effects or Premiere nothing happens. Tested on three different computers I have on hand (OS is Windows 10 and Windows 11). I had to roll-back to previous version of CC, because I just wasn't able to get any results from ME 22.

  10. Fix hardware rendering

    In media encoder 2018 since applying latest updates to After Effects, on Windows 10, with preferences in AME CC 2018 set to
    renderer: Mercury Playback Engine (GPU Acceleration)
    when actually rendering it says "SOFTWARE only"

    It takes ages and doesn't seem to be using GPU acceleration even though it's in the preferences for AME CC 2018.

  11. We want better optimization for Multicore processores and cuda on Mac OS.

    Rendering times on multicore xeon machines is slow.
    Media Encoder is using only 20% of machine processing capacity.

    Also, cuda is not using the graphics card at all while rendering.
    And it's slower than using software only renderer.

    Can you please optimize your rendering engine to utilize our new fast mac machines more.

  12. Watch folders with subfolders

    Watch folders should be able to also watch and encode from subfolders. Having all footage in one folder or having to create multiple watch folders is very inefficient and impractical when dealing with a lot of footage.

    I would also like to be able to use Media Encoder to automatically render small HEVC backup files of all new footage to be sent to offsite backup. Setting my whole video project directory as a watch folder with subfolders would allow this; the output folder would be easy to back up.

  13. Fix errors in H264 Blu Ray encoded files - AME 2018

    This is an observation of problems with AME 2018 exports after many hours of paintstaking work late at night to try to produce a H264 Based Blu Ray disc through Encore 6, but I suspect other authoring SW would have same issue.

    I know Encore 6 is a legacy product and out of support - but AME version 2017 encoded H264 blu ray files which always worked fine.

    There is also a thread on Encore Community Forums about this issue where other people have found same problem as well.

    Today I see no way to produce a Blu Ray H264…

  14. Media Encoder does not work properly.

    With new update, Media Encoder does not work properly with complex layer types. I can't connect to my After Effects file to export video. It just try to load the window but nothing happens...

  15. Media Encoder crazy slow since CC2019

    This is a general observation rather than a specific request, but ever since the CC2019, ME is really sluggish. Things that are now taking ages and/or just plain crashing:

    • Opening the app
    • Dragging a mov in to the queue
    • Selecting the preset
    • Selecting the size
    • Unchecking the linked ratio box
    • Changing 1 pass to 2 pass
    • Selecting output location.

    So yeah basically everything takes three times longer than it used to. What happened!?

    (Windows 10, 32gig ram, Geforce 680M, no problems before update)

  17. AV1 Encoder Support

    Implement next generation (royalty free) encoder from AV1 within Adobe Media Encoder. Several implementations are out, however it would be great if CC 2020 would make it more user-friendly in their AME GUI. Moreover, an adoption of the AVIF format for digital picture media across their other solutions would be welcomed as well.

  19. Broken Dynamic Link Connection (v16)

    Ever since updating to the 2019 version of Creative Cloud, the Dynamic Link Server in Media Encoder is unable to connect when attempting to export AE compositions. In After Effects, the compositions don't transfer through the render queue or "Add to Media Encoder Queue" options. The only way to export is to select the comp through Media Encoder's media browser. Even through that, the compositions are not updated to recent changes even though the AE file has been saved.

    Working on a 64GB iMac with macOS High Sierra with newly updated CC software.

  20. Save queue function for Encoder. So we can save on one machine and open up on more powerful rendering machine :-)
