  1. PAL Specification is wrong

    Why does the same mistake with the PAL format specification repeat for several generations of your product? Why PAL you have a different pixel aspect ratio than it actually is? This constantly creates problems in the work! We make videos in Full HD format, and then create a master for the air, including in the PAL format. Full HD 16x9 Square Pixels = 1920x1080. PAL Widescreen 16x9 square pixels = 1024x768. PAL Widescreen non-square = 720x576. 1024/720 = 1.4222, not 1.4587, as indicated in your programs, and therefore you always have to artificially edit these values with your hands and…

  2. HEVC Codec error

    I currently manage over 400 Macs with Adobe Media Encoder installed and I am seeing the following error when trying to import files that use the HEVC codec on around 60% of these machines.

    All machines are configured exactly the same and have the following setup
    MacOS 10.12.6
    AME 12.1.1 (Build 12)

    The exact error message I get is attached

  3. Convert variable frame rate to constant

    smart phones are variable frame rate- if you want to be able to edit with this footage it has to be constant frame rate- hand brake does this for free but you have to choose one file at a time and its slow-

  4. extend media to encode Matroska FFV1

    In Archives around the world, the Matroska wrapper and ffv1 codec is a widely accepted open format for digital preservation. The lack of the ability for the Adobe Encoder to handle this wrapper, which is used extensively within archives as a preferred format for born digital use is a real problem. Please add the MKV format to the already great product and make a lot of people happier.

  5. Transcoding to Avid MXF Atom Media

    Being able to transcode media to Avid MXF Atom media would be handy. We currently run Premiere and Avid suites so being able to link them up this way would be great.

  6. Have a default Preset

    Being able to right-click a preset and setting "Make Default" would be fantastic. I know AME is supposed to apply whatever preset you last used, but that only works when AME has not crashed. I'd find it incredibly useful to be able to set AME to, by default, always apply the default Preset unless I changed it.

  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. Render Fails When Rendering H.265 Directly from Premiere

    Hello! I've been having trouble for the last few months when rendering Premiere projects as h.265 files. My premiere/media encoder is currently up to date, but this same thing happened in the last versions as well.

    Basically, when I export premiere projects using the h.265 codec it often fails before the render finishes. Here is what gets written to the error file:


    • Encoding Time: 13:59:45
      07/26/2018 12:09:58 PM : Encoding Failed


    Export Error
    Error compiling movie.

    Render Error

    Render returned error.

    Writing with exporter: HEVC (H.265)
    Writing to file: \?\E:\AVE0 Temp\FurryComputer\redner1.mp4
    Writing file type: HEVC
    Around timecode: 00:09:10:36 - 00:09:10:44 …

  9. OGG OGV

    Seriously ... Adobe needs to add these output formats... how long have users been asking for it? How many replies have I seen suggesting using another media encoding software? Wake up Adobe!

  11. AVI support

    Please add support for avi formats. Some of my devices save the recordings in avi formats and I lose quality when converting :(

  12. Add ProRes RAW support so that we can at least transcode to 422.

    We shot a film in ProRes RAW at the University I teach at and ended up having to do this janky workflow with FCPX to edit the files in Premiere. It would have been nice to, at the very least, throw the footage into Encoder to transcode RAW to ProRes 422. (like I have to do with the new Panasonic 422 10bit files). Thanks!

  13. Constant Quality/Quantizer

    Adobe software needs to implement both Constant Quality and Constant Quantizer options for H.264/5, with an adjustable Max bitrate setting that can also be applied when needed.

  14. Frame padding

    Having custom/fixed frame padding while exporting image sequences is a good idea. VFX software like Nuke doesn't allow multiple frame paddings.

    Ex: If we render image sequence which ranges from 1 to 1000 frames then it would be

    Images.01.png
    Images.02.png
    ....
    ....
    Images.99.png
    images.100.png (Here the padding > 2)
    ....
    ....
    Images.999.png
    Images.1000.png (Here the padding > 3)

    In the above case, Nuke will interpret Multiple reads nodes for each padding increment.

  18. PP & AME 12.1.2 broke support for YI 4K+ 60fps

    AME 12.1.2 is ignoring 4K 60fps files from the YI 4K+ Still works in 12.1.1

    And Premiere Pro 12.1.2 says "The importer reported a generic error" on one system, and another records a series of events:

    A low-level exception occurred in ImporterMPEG (Importer:39)
    A low-level exception occurred in ImporterQuickTime (Importer:57)
    A low-level exception occurred in ImporterQuickTime (Importer:39)

    (Oh and thanks in advance for adding that copy button to that Events windows for the next version..............Adobe......)

  19. Adobe Encore (stopped development in Adobe CS6) does Blu-ray audio/video multiplexing and Blu-ray authoring. What current software does it?

    Now dormant Adobe Encore does Blu-ray audio-video multiplexing and Blu-ray authoring. What CURRENT software does this? Apparently it's not Adobe.
