  1. 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.

  4. HTML 5 video export

    it would be great if a user could choose a preset in the media encoder that would batch generate all of the resources required to embed a nicely configured HTML 5 video into a web page. the way Dreamweaver is set up it seems to beg this workflow and productivity / interoperability feature.

    i imagine it would also export a block of html that would already have the variables assigned and ready to drag right into our waiting project(s).

  5. QuickTime Pro Res Renders Failing

    I am having the an issue when I try to render a Quicktime ProRes 422 master. I can encode it without problems within Premiere, but when I send it to AME I get the Export Error message, with error code 2147287036 listed. I am on a brand new 27 iMac Retina 5K, 4.2 Ghz processor, 64GM RAM, and a Radeon Pro 580 with 6 GB VRAM. This is a fresh install of Creative Cloud. There are no previous versions running on this system, as I installed Creative Cloud apps for the first time on Thursday. I am running 12.1.2 on…

  6. better default settings

    I'm super lost and upset about the removal of the h.264 quicktime codec from after effects. Also, super unhappy that I can't render quicktime prores on windows. Since the work flow has been explaned to me by your adobe care twitter specialist that we must use Adobe media encoder for h.264 and the default settings are garbage maybe make the default more like these settings https://bit.ly/1ShdNKR better yet throw out the legacy codecs and give us something as good as ProRes!! Thank you!

  9. Externally Updatable Direct Publishing Dashboard Panel

    I would really like to see more work be done on the Direct Publishing features that make it more automated when posting to social media, My suggestion would be to have the ability to have either a file or panel (some sort of dashboard) that has default content and an area to add a description that then gets updated into each preset in any given designated watch folder settings, essentially automatically propagating to all platforms with related Tags updated in the dashboard and only having to render out one file and thus posting to all platforms (using predetermined Presets nested…

  14. Grain effect to prevent banding of colors (OnionRings)

    AE Grain effect is one of the powerful grain Ive seen.
    I mainly use it to cancel banding (OnionRings) when encoding to MP4s.
    It should be used as effect inside of encoder+be much faster because it is a very heavy effect.

    Adding grain to a file makes it easy to get rid of banding, AE Grain effect knows:
    1. To put grain in places based on highlights and shadows(where the risk of banding is usually high)
    2. To put different amount of noise on different color channels. (Usually its enough for the encoder to have more detail in the blue…

  15. Automatic selecting of outputs

    Selecting similar outputs based on their position in the Q:
    FOR EXAMPLE: In the Q there are 3 files, every file has 3 outputs:
    1. User select 2 Files.
    2. User click on a button or keyboard shortcut to enable: Select Similar Outputs by Index"
    3.User Click on First output
    4. AME select all first outputs of selected files.

    the same, if user clicks on the "Similar" button but selects second output of selected files.

  16. Automatic reading of files

    When reading sequences of files AME Should do it automatically from folders. Choosing one folder and AME will load all sequences it recognize in that folder tree. Like AE but little bit better.

    Maybe even give us a list of formats it recognizes for us to choose from:

    "AME Found files in this folder and its folder tree. please select which files you want to load to the Q and how:"

    name.jpg (read as a seq) choose to: load as seq load as files
    name.mov
    nameB.jpg (read as a seq) choose to: load as seq load as files
    name.png (read…

  17. .DNG actually working with proxies

    .dng files, when turned into proxies, are automatically renamed so it's impossible, even with the 'rename files if there's an identical file' thing unchecked, to make proxies with the same name as their original Raw DNG files without doing it manually, one by one, in file explorer. Which would be insanity.

    Fortunately, offline raw files reconnect to proxies easily when searching for media start time instead of file name. BUT THEY DON'T GO BACK. God in heaven, I *** wish they did. You can't out the proxies offline and reconnect them to their raws again. You can go forward, but

  18. BUG: Losing the export settings set in After Effects. (+ don't overwrite on update)

    When I export my lower thirds from AE (easily 400+ per project) I select the self created preset "GoPro-NoSound" in AE. But when I queue it in Media Encoder, the settings are lost. It is not even a Quicktime file, it is a default MP4. I first need to select all files in the queue and re-set it once again in Media Encoder to the settings I already set in AE.

    This is a long standing bug. And it annoyed me even more today, as due to me updating all CC programs, the saved preset of the previous version are…

  19. Upload one video at a time

    I have received loading errors when loading every clip at the same time, maybe because the loading speed of each video slows down when dividing the speed for the different videos.

  20. P2 File names kept on import

    (Note I posted this in the Premiere forum as well, but am posting here since AME is part of the process and may be responsible for the issue)

    This has been a bug since 2016 I think. The P2 camera I use has custom names for each clip. Nothing outlandish, just the camera operator's name and successive numbers. When importing via the "import" checkbox in Media Browser (the operation that launches AME and copies the contents of my card to the drive I want to use) the filenames get changed back to the Panasonic random clip name.MXF. Would be fantastic…
