  4. No Scenarist Closed Captions in AME 14.8

    Windows 10 - 32GB RAM - GTX 1080

    AME 14.8 is missing the option to embed or create sidecar Scenarist Closed Caption files.

    I have used this feature on a regular basis. Tried with my normal export preset in premiere for captions. Even recreated it. Upon queuing to AME, it changes the captioning format from SCC to MCC.

  5. AME altering closed captions format in 14.8 MXF exports - Renders Unusable for Broadcast

    Windows 10 - 32GB RAM - GTX1080
    When I export a show with embedded closed captioning as an OP1a MXF from Premiere Pro 14.8 to Media Encoder 14.8, the captions are being changed from .scc to .mcc. I am exporting an HDCAMHD 50 MXF that has 608 and 708 captions that were imported from Scenarist files (.scc). When I go to the captions tab in PPro, I am selecting "Embed in Output File." Below that, the greyed out boxes confirm that it is a .scc file. I can even check "Create Sidecar File" and .scc is still one of the…

  7. Don't connect to dynamic link server before opening settings for a dynamic link render queue item

    The "connecting to dynamic link" box often takes a long time. Instead, let the settings page load instantly like it does for a non dynamic link item. Settings can be available right away, and the video preview can display a "connecting to dynamic link" message until it establishes the connection. Most of the time, a user does not need the video preview.

  8. Aspect ratio SAR and DAR missing in exported MP4 file container data

    When encoding MP4 files from Media Encoder or Premiere Pro the exported file is missing the SAR and DAR values.

    This can be easily check with ffprobe and this command:
    ffprobe -v error -showformat -showstreams file.mp4
    [STREAM]
    index=0
    codecname=h264
    codec
    longname=H.264 / AVC / MPEG-4 AVC / MPEG-4 part 10
    profile=Main
    codec
    type=video
    codectimebase=1/50
    codectagstring=avc1
    codectag=0x31637661
    width=1920
    height=1080
    coded
    width=1920
    codedheight=1088
    closed
    captions=0
    hasbframes=2
    sampleaspectratio=N/A
    displayaspectratio=N/A

    As you can see above the encoded file shows N/A values instead of the expected SAR value 1:1…

  13. Hardware encoding for VBR 2 pass.

    Please allow hardware encoding as an option for VBR 2 pass. VBR 2 pass only has the option for software encode. I understand it is by design but why?

  14. Droppable menu bar icon MacOS

    Hi, I find myself dropping movies that need to be converted on the menu bar icon at least a few times a day. But that doesn't work, although it seems so intuitive. Any chance that could be implemented?

  16. I want to make presentation usb drives.

    I want to make presentation usb drives. You pop a DVD into a computer and a menu comes up with the videos etc that are on the DVD and the user selects. I can not find the same option for usb drives, which is amazing to me.
    I have ten grandchildren and I would love to be able to send them individualized usb drives that they can put into a computer and they would be presented with a menu from which they could choose which media they wanted .

    Thanks,
    Rick Adams

  17. BUG - Multiple Outputs from Single Source File Fails / Is Inconsistent

    Trying to export two versions / sizes to H264 MP4 from a source 1080p ProRes file. I'm using CUDA accelerated Mercury Playback Engine. AME behavior is inconsistent. First attempt resulted in one of the two desired outputs being completed successfully, with the second output failing without an error.

    Tried switching to CPU Mercury Playback Engine, re-added file to the queue, set desired outputs, but this time both output files failed to render. No error, just failed.

    I switched back to CUDA accelerated, re-added file/outputs, and this time both files output successfully.

    I'm on Windows 10 Pro, with an AMD Threadripper…

  19. Transform Effect in Premiere results on bugged render in Encoder

    When rendering a video for my YT channel, I used the transform effect in Premiere and everything was normal, after rendering without checking, I saw the end result, and it every file that I've used the transform effect in premiere was off from where I placed them. Then I checked the preview on render queue at Encoder, and even when previewing it was wrong. Then I double checked in premiere to see if the problem was the file. Turns out that in premiere everything was in the right place, and rendered as expected. Hope I have discoverd an error/bug to…
