  1. 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.

  2. Adding an option to export animated GIF's in 60 fps.

    Having to export things in 50 fps via the Animated GIF option gets close to perfect, but 60 fps is the dream option. GIF Sequence at 60 fps doesn't work for any of my project, as it works its way on 6 fps and puts the total time of the GIF to about 10x longer.

  3. Edit Default Length of Stitched Images (AME CC 2019)

    Currently, there is no effective way to edit the length of imported images that you wish to stitch together. The default length is 5 seconds and the only way to 'modify' that is by using Export Settings > Effects > Time Tuner and altering the Target Duration or Duration Change (%). That's great and all... as long as you don't have to change the duration by more than 10%, which is the max.

  4. BUG - XML sidecar files not created AME 2019

    My goal is to create an XMP with the markers from the source sequences (generated from Premiere) for additional processing. But I can't get AME to generate the XMP sidecar files when I render files out.

    If I select my preset, then select Metadata to bring up the Metadata Export dialog, I have the Export Options: Create Sidecar File selected, but I never get an XMP file created. Preservation Rules = Preserve All, Export Master Speech Track & Sequence Markers is checked, and Export Template = All Metadata. Verified in the app settings it's supposed to be doing this as…

  5. When creating a sidecar caption file... time code is wrong

    I have a program that is recorded on an XDCAM disc that has 608 captions embedded. When I go to create a sidecar file in AME to send to a local TV station, the time code is always off between 30 and 45 seconds.
    I have verified the time code on the embedded caption file is correct. Both files are 29.97 drop frame

  10. Allow me to adjust volume of chime when queue finishes

    Just a simple thing, allow me to raise/lower volume of the chime that indicates the queue is finished.

    I use headphones, and while the queue is going I'll jump back into working on a timeline, the clips usually are quiet because I haven't done an audio mix, so up the volume goes...and then the queue finishes and my ears get shot by the chime.

  11. SECURE FTP!!!!

    For the love of... please update media encoder FTP transfer to allow transfer over Secure FTP (SFTP)

    You all have not updated FTP transfer software since 2010! Its time to get with the program and allow for better security. Without this feature the automated system in Adobe does not work and files have to be transferred manually or you have to run no encryption at all which is not a wise idea for anyone and puts the network at risk.

    Adobe please address this. This is a very common issue for broadcasters and other media companies.

  13. When exporting to an image sequence from an AE comp, allow 1) custom start frame numbers and 2) getting frame numbers from the composition

    Example: If I exported an image sequence 1000 frames long, but decided I wanted to replace frames 50-100. I could select those frames as my in In Point & Out Point and click a box that says "take frame numbers from composition" or something, then the exported image files would be called XXX0050 - XXX0100 automatically.

  14. Monitor audio during encoding

    It would be helpful to be able to monitor audio (either through speakers or a visible meter) during encoding. I find it very useful to catch editing issues in the Output Preview monitor, however I do sometimes still get caught out with audio problems. If there could be an option to preview the audio as well, that would be very useful.

  15. Add Fade In/Out. Would help with Image Overlays.

    Currently, Bug stays on while video fades up. I want both to fade in/out. Compressor has this feature. Why doesn't Encoder?

  16. Let AME skip .mxf filenames in metadata

    When converting .mxf videomixdowns, AME takes the filenames from the metadata inside the .mxf. For my vfx workflow,I would like the converted video to have the actual filename of the .mxf.
    Would be nice if this was an option.

  18. CBR is not really CBR

    CBR is not real CBR.

    With every CBR settings in media encoder, final export always has the lower data rate rather than the chosen data rate.

  19. 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.

  20. 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!
