  1. Let us set a maximum file size for best render compression

    It'd be great to just set the desired output file size, and have AME do the best compression it can for that specific size. Thanks.

  2. Bug: Lumetri LUTs not available for creating Presets

    When creating an Encoding preset, not all the installed LUTs, that show in PP, appear in the Lumetri Look / LUT dropdown. Further, I have been unable to import 3rd party Panasonic LUTS using the "Select" option in the dropdown. Apparently, the only compatible LUTs are in a legacy .ITX format? As a result, I am unable to apply a simple V-Log-to-Rec709 LUT to dailies footage that I want to transcode for client use, nor am I able to add such LUTs when creating proxy files. None of the supplied LUTs appear to have been designed as technical LUTs to…

  3. Let us batch change render settings, please!

    Adobe media encoder sorely need the ability to batch change render setting presets on all videos selected.
    Example: Let's say I want to render 100 video from After Effects and send them to AME, then it chooses the last used render setting by default when loaded into AME. If I want to change I have to manually (!) add new render settings/preset to Every single of the 100 videos and then manually (!) delete the previous setting so I don't render each video two times. Also it automatically makes new names for the new video setting I added so I…

  5. JPEG 2000 MXF OP1a preset needs support for interlaced media

    The JPEG 2000 MXF OP1a preset currently supports only Progressive output in the Basic Video Settings but we desperately need support for both interlaced sources and properly interlaced output to meet the JPEG 2000 archival requirements of the Library of Congress and other archival organizations.

    We have a growing backlog of interlaced 1080i 59.94 program files that need to be converted to lossless, interlaced JPEG 2000 files for archival delivery, compliant with ISO/IEC 15444-2 specifications. I would point out that such files have become a core deliverable for many broadcasters, distributors and funding and production tax credits agencies, both in…

  6. Cut 'X' Frames from start and end of clip / Add hold

    As I process broadcast files, most of them have ten seconds of idents at the start and 5 seconds of hold on the end.

    It would be great it there was a setting under 'effects' to tell media encoder to automatically remove x amount of frames from the start and end of the clip. You can adjust this to suite so you are left with only the actual content.

    An additional feature would be to ask media encoder to add a hold onto the end of a clip. For instance broadcast files have 5 seconds hold, but other content delivery…

  7. Please, is there a way to insert a "match source" button for audio?

    It takes so much time to check every single file to convert with the correct audio channel/ tracks. It would be great for people who work with a massive amount of files.

  10. Bug: Media Encoder fails to encode HEVC h.265 properly, Can only export in Premiere

    I am attempting to export vertical Iphone HEVC video. When I do it in Premiere, the export goes perfect. But when I try to do it in AME, my vertical video is rotated 90 degrees, as if the codec forced it to rotate, even though the sequence settings and video settings match at 1080 wide by 1920 tall.

    Basically, AME's HEVC encoding doesn't seem to work even though Premiere's does.

    Most up to date version of AME and PP CC.

  11. % based quality control for h265 and h264 encoding

    We should be able to set a % of the original quality in the encoding setting so the user can more easily get the bitrate they need compared to the original file.
    this will be great for re-encoding h264 to h265 for example to get the files smaller without checking the bitrate on every different file.
    The unofficial webm plugin supports this, so why not the official ones?!

  12. BUG: Media Encoder will not generate drop frame timecode.


    1. If creating a preset from scratch, it is possible to "Set Start Timecode" to a DF (e.g. 01;00;0;00)...HOWEVER the output file will be NON drop frame starting at 00;59;56;11

    2. A preset with DF "Set Start Timecode" of 01:00;00;00 will immediately be changed to NDF timecode starting at 00:59:56:12 when applied to source clip in queue, and can not be changed to DF 01;00;00;00 once applied.

    3. In Preferences>Media, "Indeterminate Media Timebase" is always set to 29.97 Drop-Frame

    I have tried several versions of Media Encoder:
    12.1.2 in Mac OSX 10.11.6
    13.0.1 in Mac OSX 10.13.6

  13. Timecode reset

    I have a problem importing media to Premiere using Media Encoder.
    Sometimes, when I finish importing, the camera's original timecode is reseted to 0:00. The strange thing is that it doesn't always reset, and I can't find the factor that determines this. I always use the same preset (MXF XDCAM)

  14. SFTP upload from export settings

    It's long past time SFTP was supported through the publish preset settings. More and more servers are turning off unencrypted FTP access.

  17. Burn in metadata (eg FPS, codec, frame size)

    In effects tab I can burn in timecode & clip name. Be useful to be able to burn in other metadata too.

    Could be added to clip name prefix/suffix in a similar way that Resolve works (eg %fps will insert the FPS for a clip

  18. BUG: Media Encoder crop feature is broken

  19. 4k UHD export presets please

    Why are there still no 4k / UHD export presets included?

    Export settings similar to system camera 4k/UHD (Panasonic etc.) would be very helpful, as in my case I can't seem to find a setting with a filesize-quality ratio similar to what my GH5 camera produces (and I'm done wasting time on that). And quicktime jpeg is removed, that doesn't help either.

    Even phones film in 4k these days..

  20. Multi-audio on MP4 export

    Please add the multi-audio export for H264.mp4 setup ... (like it's possible for MXF)

    AAC 5.1 are not enought ... (because channel 4 are compressed and lowerred because it is SubBass track).
    I want to use the H264 export setup option with a multi-audio mono (or stéréo) tracks like it existe for MXF file...
