  1. Enable hardware encoding / decoding for h264 and h265 - it's 2018

    I have i9 7900x with Nvidia 1080ti and 64gb ram Win 10. Was excited to hear about hardware encoding for h264 and h265 (finally!!!). Was stunned to find out it's only for intel integrated graphics - it's an April Fools 2018 joke, right? I guess I'm still transcoding in other (free) software until Adobe catches up...

  2. Make renders GPU Intensive

    When rendering a queue, I check in Task Manager, CPU is on 100%, GPU around 0%!
    Many people have good VGA cards, while most of them own 7700, 8700 or 9700 at most, even having a few more CPU cores is not an advantage if compared to GPU based rendering.
    So why both Media Encoder & Premiere just use CPU to render/export rather than GPU?!
    In Media Encoder last version > Renderer: Mercury Playback Engine GPU... is selected by default, but no effect, am I doing anything wrong?

  3. Improve Media Encoder Performance vs Premiere Pro

    Please improve Media Encoder performance. Rendering via Premiere Pro takes on a specific project 1 Hour. Exporting via Media Encoder takes 3 - 5 Hours. Please fix this. I have searched the internet and there are many people experiencing bad performance in AME compared to Premiere Pro.

  4. Don't preload plugins on launch, only when needed.

    Please, please can we improve launch time by not preloading all of our AE/PPro plugins (I have hundreds) unless they are actually needed. It takes an age. I can actually boot my whole Mac faster than I can open MediaEncoder from the same M2SSD. Ridiculous. It make ME almost impractical to use due simply to the launch time.

  5. Publish video straight to We Transfer

    The ability to send a video over WeTransfer once an export has finished. Much like the way you can publish to YouTube or an FTP server etc.

  6. Automatic naming of outputs

    Naming rules for files and folders.
    As we have presets for encoding preferences, such should be for naming convention of files and the automation of creating new folders.

    for example:
    For the "save to" folder I selected: D:\Projects\MyMovie\
    Enecoded file, JPG SEQ named: Scn1_####.jpg
    and third place output in the outputs list
    with a QT preset named "QTpreview":

    A naming rule such: \%FileName\%index_%FileName.ext

    will save as: D:\Projects\MyMovie\Scn1\3_Scn1.mov
    *Underscore and numbers should not be included unless
    a different rule is used.

    A naming rule such \%index\%preset.ext

    will save as D:\Projects\MyMovie\3\QTpreview.mov

    More rules can be used such as date, Time code extra. …

  7. PROPER color profile and bith depth handling!

    You can't work professionally with AME unless you implement proper color profile rendering and comprehensive (!!!) bith depth handling!

    Especially coming from AE, how would you export to a digital intermediate, if you can't export something MORE than 8 bit, and Rec.709? It's just embarassing for Adobe.

    — I just come from having a nightmare experience on my last job... Had to use FFmpeg to get a reasonable 10 bit broadcast format, that still contained all the color information. That is a FREE app that got the job done, compared to the PAID Media Encoder...

  8. There should be a "Based on Source" option for the audio as well as video.

    Many issues with the Premiere Pro Project Manager, Proxy Creation, and Ingest can be avoided if you could simply have presets that work with all audio configurations. In many instances you would want the transcoded media to have an identical audio layout to the original. Its essential, in fact, when creating proxies and archiving sequences using Project Manager....yet, there is no option to do this.

  12. Append custom file name on export

    I would like to append a custom name to the end or beginning of a file name on export. Yes, I know you can select an option saying "Append preset name to filename on export", but I don't need this all the time. It would be much simpler if this was an option that is chosen within the preset itself. This would create much more flexibility when exporting.

  13. App for Media Encoder to send progress status/updates to your phone

    App for Media Encoder to send progress status/updates to your phone so you know when it's finished processing footage. This way, you can leave your computer to do the work and be notified when the job's done or is nearing completion.

  14. Adobe Media Encoder CC 2019 - Taking 180 Hours to Render (was 6 Hours before the upgrade)

    AME CC 2019 is taking 180 hours to render, while the normal would be 6 hours. HOWEVER there is a CATCH: This slowness came while the computer was NOT being used - overnight, in screen saver/standby mode. When I came in the morning and started using it, the 'Remaining' info in AME started to drop dramatically. Now it is about 78 hours to finish, and dropping. Doing some calculations here, it might finish in the 6-7 hour estimate, as long as I don't let the computer alone, I'm assuming. IMPORTANT to note: I did the same thing yesterday, same video,…

  15. Overall queue estimated remaining time

    It would be great to have an estimated time remaining for a whole batch of videos. Currently the remaining time is only displayed per output node in the Encoding Panel.

  16. Change Name of "Source" Folder when using Watch Folders

    When using a Watch Folder, ME moves the original file to a folder called Source and places it under a sub-folder named with the date and time.

    This means that locating the original file requires knowledge of when it was processed. Not a big deal when managing only a few files, but a huge pain for a large number of files, particularly when multiple editors need to locate those files.

    At a bare minimum, I would like the be able to set the sub-folder name to the same as the original file. Appending a "_#" tot he folder name in…

  18. Exporting Captions: "embed in output file" only exports 608 captions.

    In EXPORT SETTINGS in Premiere:
    - when I have both 608 and 708 caption file on my project, I hit "Queue", it will only export the 608 text. However, in Premiere if I don't hit "Queue" and hit "export" it will export both.

    So, exporting in Media Encoder does not for some reason export the 708 caption stream. Only the 608 one.

  20. NVENC and VCE

    Could you add support for GPU Hardware transcoding technology? Nvidia's NVENC and AMD's VCE technology, either of these would literally allow export times of 4k video at 200Mbps to take as long as the video's length is, rather than succumbing us to literal HOURS of export times for videos that are less than 10 minutes.

    I have combed over the user forums and some of Adobe staff claim that it isn't doable. Yet here is the SDK site for NVENC:
    https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-video-codec-sdk

    This technology has been around since the Kepler era of Nvidia GPUs. Which was 7 years ago since the…
