  2. 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. Allow the user to set options for after the encoding queue is complete (restart, shutdown, sleep, close Media Encoder, etc.)

    Considering how long rendering/encoding/conversions can sometimes take, it'd be fantastic to allow the user to set an option for what happens after the queue is complete.
    There should be no need to have your computer running all night when Media Encoder finishes the queue two hours after you call it a night.

  4. 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.

  5. Vimeo: Cannot connect

    Cannot connect to Vimeo in the Publish tab of the export settings window (Premiere Pro and Media Encoder). Posting in Media Encoder uservoice, since Vimeo shows that as the connection.

    I was connected and published okay after update to PR 14.1.0. In response to the forum thread below, I Signed Out in PR, and was unable to connect. See my post there.

  8. Add QuickTime Reference file support again!

    This was an absolutely superfast workflow for exporting from Avid.
    Really easy and time saving. Avid even still offers QuickTime reference export in version 2019.9.

  11. Email when Encoding Item Completes

    Add the option to send an email once a specific task has finished. For example, if a task is set to publish to youtube, and email containing the URL to the youtube page would be awesome.

  13. Ability to notify about render status/render queue through mobile adobe app

    Would it not be nice to be able to leave the workstation while it renders and get notified of completed renders/check status on the mobile app?

  14. Switch off computer after encoding is finished

    I often put a list of files to render in the render queue so the computer will work in the night.
    I want media encoder to shut down the computer when the encoding is finished, so I will save energy and I don't hear the computer noise in the night

  17. 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.

  19. Media Encoder v13.0.1 Exporting gifs change all colours slightly. #FFFFFF changes to #FBFBFB

    When I export my After Efects composition as a gif with Media Encoder, it alters all of the colours in my file. White (#FFFFFF) changes to an off white (#FBFBFB) this is not a colour calibration issue as when opened in other programs the colours can be eyedropped and are completely different. Exporting as a video keeps all of the original colours, only gifs cahnge.

  20. 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.
