  1. 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.

  2. Distributed Rendering

    The Creative Cloud suite needs the ability to use other resources connected to the same network for distributed rendering.

    Installing a small program on other connected machines would allow the primary machine to use the available CPU/GPU and memory of connected machines to speed up render/export duties.

  3. Fade in/out

  4. when media encoder finishes a file allow the user to say where the ORIGINAL should go (currently its a long-date-stamped folder)

    Media Encoder puts all original media in ugly folders, it would be nice for example if the file could be put in a new folder as the same name of the file or even a user specified folder.

  5. image overlay blending mode

    Blending mode selection under the image overlay settings when exporting in Media Encoder would be great! Opacity percentage alone just doesn't cut it :) Thanks!

  6. Watch folders with subfolders

    Watch folders should be able to also watch and encode from subfolders. Having all footage in one folder or having to create multiple watch folders is very inefficient and impractical when dealing with a lot of footage.

    I would also like to be able to use Media Encoder to automatically render small HEVC backup files of all new footage to be sent to offsite backup. Setting my whole video project directory as a watch folder with subfolders would allow this; the output folder would be easy to back up.

  9. Apply Preset names to file

    Once I finish an edit in Premiere I need to encode 27 files from the sequence. I've created 27 presets in MEdia Encoder. My question is, can I add a "name" to each preset that would be show in the files name as well?

    Example

    original file name: RaceCarV3.mov
    new file name based on WebM preset: RaceCarV3-WebM.webm

    Anyway to do this? pleeeeeessseee!!!!!! make this happen

  10. Get Media Encoder to respect all fonts from Premiere Pro.

    Media Encoder CC 2019 doesn't respect my client's proprietary font which works fine in Premiere Pro, but instead replaces it with a generic font. Highly annoying and time consuming to discover this in the middle of a long batch export. Had to do them all from Premiere.

  11. 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. …

  12. Unable to produce frame

    Since upgrading from 2017 to 2018 we can not use the Media Encoder batch processing feature any more. After 1 or 2 processed videos Media Encoder fails and we get the following error message:

    Export Error
    Error compiling movie.

    Accelerated Renderer Error

    Unable to produce frame.

    Writing with exporter: QuickTime
    Writing to file: R:\5760-Cineform\Incoming\ATM00442-Australia-Kangaroos-on-Beach-5760x2880-29-97fps-Cineform-2-Min-Col-Stereo-Sound.mov
    Around timecode: 00;02;49;19 - 00;02;49;23
    Rendering at offset: 130.998 seconds
    Component: QuickTime of type Exporter
    Selector: 9
    Error code: -1609629695

    We would love to be able to render overnight again, rather than rendering each file from Premiere for 30-40 minutes before being able to work on…

  13. Improve Handling of Watch Folders, Image Sequences, and "Source" Folder

    Many times animations are rendered out in image sequences, and while the watch folder implementation is helpful to transcode to other video formats, the system has one critical flaw:

    Currently, if you import an image sequence into a watch folder, and there are multiple output presets associated with that watch folder, only the first process completes successfully. Any other processes after that fail to transcode - since the source images have been moved to the source folder and are no longer available in the watch folder.

    It would be awesome to improve/implement the following:


    1. Allow the user more control and…

  14. Add Distrubuted Processing, Export with multiple computers

    Similar to Compressor on macOS — add the ability for users to queue and export a Premiere Pro timeline on another workstation(s). Editors can be liberated to work on the next project as the last finishes in a queue on another computer.

  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. Watch folder/image sequence/waiting user controlled image count

    Watch a folder where image sequences are rendered but wait a user define image count before processing.
    ex : watch a folder or sub folders >if watch folder or subfolder have x files then start batch processing this folder

  19. PLEASE allow custom destination paths for each preset respectively

    We constantly have to encode one commercial sport to multiple markets (20+) across the US. Each market has it's own video specs. It would REALLY be a time saver to have each preset go to a predetermined destination, instead of all going into one folder then having to sort them out. Please?
