  1. 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.

  3. Shutdown computer after encoding queue is done

    Media Encoder needs a button which asks for: "Shutdown computer after encoding is done". This option I found in all other encoders and video editing programmes I used so far.
    I can not beieve that this natural function is not in the big Adobe Media Encoder.
    I guess this has a politcal reason. Fix this!

    This is the main idea of setting up a render queue in an external program. When you leave for the evening you press "start rendering" and then "shutdown computer when done".
    So the processor is used, when I do not need it at all.

  7. Option to add prefix and suffix

    Add option in preset or export options to add a prefix or suffix. Like in Illustrator's "Export for screens". This will save from renaming every file individually.

  10. Auto Versioning up when adding the same comp/project again or duplicating in the encoder

    right now it makes this
    whatevernamev0011
    whatever
    namev0012 etc
    and would be much nicer if it could recognize the ending _v001, v002 etc

  11. Need to be able to pause encoding queue, reboot computer, and resume queue.

    Continual forced Windows updates destroying workflow. I am converting hundreds of videos in an archive. My queues can take days of processing. If a forced-boot update is pushed to the computer, the queue is lost.

  12. AME from AE frame numbering?

    Frame numbering needs to be consistent when sending a render sequence out to AME. In AE you can overwrite specific parts of a sequence, retaining proper frame numbers. In AME the frame numbering ALWAYS starts at 0000 without any control, which makes rendering sequences to AME useless. Professionals use frame sequences for efficiency with motion graphics or FX. Limiting us to only rendering in AE or using 3rd party tools like Render Garden or BG Renderer shows a continued apathy towards your professional base. No, we don't need Premiere to work on a flipping Ipad, unless that's who your base…

  14. 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.

  15. MAKE IT WORK!

    Sending sequences from Premiere to ME is a **** CRAPSHOOT. I simply cannot rely on getting an accurate export. Today, I sent my final sequence out from Premiere to ME, compressing it using the YouTube 1080p preset. It made a nice, 2.7 gig file...and within that file were instances where audio was duplicated and repeated, as if our host were repeating herself.

    If I can't get an identical output to what I input, then the program's pretty useless.

  16. Saving the rendered part of a stopped render

    I would appreciate if there would be a way to save the rendered part of a stopped render. I have been rendering for 12 hours now and the render suddenly frizzed, if it fails of stops (like it did before SEVERAL TIMES) I will lose all the rendered parts as well as many working hours!

  18. Reload source project or composition

    Add the ability to reload source Pr project or Ae comp in queue, for example, after submitting a job to AME you may need to change something in the original file, so instead of deleting and sending the job again, it would be very helpful to save the the Ae file then right click on the corresponding queue item and choose reload, et voila :)

  19. When sending the que from AE to Encoder, I'd like the render settings selected in AE to transfer into Encoder.

    When sending the que from AE to Encoder, I'd like the render settings selected in AE to transfer into Encoder. Currently when we send from AE into Encoder, I have to again reselect my export options in Encoder. Encoder seems to always keep the last render setting used and apply it to the new batch.

  20. 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…
