  1. BUG: Media Encoder will not generate drop frame timecode.

    1. If creating a preset from scratch, it is possible to "Set Start Timecode" to a DF (e.g. 01;00;0;00)...HOWEVER the output file will be NON drop frame starting at 00;59;56;11
    2. A preset with DF "Set Start Timecode" of 01:00;00;00 will immediately be changed to NDF timecode starting at 00:59:56:12 when applied to source clip in queue, and can not be changed to DF 01;00;00;00 once applied.
    3. In Preferences>Media, "Indeterminate Media Timebase" is always set to 29.97 Drop-Frame

    I have tried several versions of Media Encoder:
    12.1.2 in Mac OSX 10.11.6
    13.0.1 in Mac OSX 10.13.6

  2. Let us batch change render settings, please!

    Adobe media encoder sorely need the ability to batch change render setting presets on all videos selected.
    Example: Let's say I want to render 100 video from After Effects and send them to AME, then it chooses the last used render setting by default when loaded into AME. If I want to change I have to manually (!) add new render settings/preset to Every single of the 100 videos and then manually (!) delete the previous setting so I don't render each video two times. Also it automatically makes new names for the new video setting I added so I…

  3. Timecode reset

    I have a problem importing media to Premiere using Media Encoder.
    Sometimes, when I finish importing, the camera's original timecode is reseted to 0:00. The strange thing is that it doesn't always reset, and I can't find the factor that determines this. I always use the same preset (MXF XDCAM)

  4. ability to encode video from variable to constant fps!

    Handbreak can do this, so why can't the best video encoder on the market do it yet?

  5. Bug: Lumetri LUTs not available for creating Presets

    When creating an Encoding preset, not all the installed LUTs, that show in PP, appear in the Lumetri Look / LUT dropdown. Further, I have been unable to import 3rd party Panasonic LUTS using the "Select" option in the dropdown. Apparently, the only compatible LUTs are in a legacy .ITX format? As a result, I am unable to apply a simple V-Log-to-Rec709 LUT to dailies footage that I want to transcode for client use, nor am I able to add such LUTs when creating proxy files. None of the supplied LUTs appear to have been designed as technical LUTs to…

  6. BUG REPORT: Timecode Overlay is Incorrect

    Media Encoder v13.1
    Mac OS 10.12.6
    MacPro6,1

    Source file wrapper: Quicktime
    Source file codec: Avid DNxHD 115
    FPS: 24 (not 23.98)
    Start TC: 05:05:24:03

    Exporting to mp4/h264 using the Timecode Overlay pointing at the Media File for TC Source, and it's generating an huge offset.

  7. Add Copy to folder in the Publish Tab

    Please consider adding a "Copy to Folder/Network Folder" option under the Publish Tab in a preset. This will enable processing and maintaining a the encoded file locally while placing a copy of it into another folder elsewhere, specifically on a network for delivery to another department.

  8. Let us set a maximum file size for best render compression

    It'd be great to just set the desired output file size, and have AME do the best compression it can for that specific size. Thanks.

  9. Please, is there a way to insert a "match source" button for audio?

    It takes so much time to check every single file to convert with the correct audio channel/ tracks. It would be great for people who work with a massive amount of files.

  10. Add more up-to-date presets for Premiere and Premiere Elements

    Premiere Elements is a nice and working simple solution for getting your media "out the door", so why is it that even the most recent version of Premiere Elements does not have more updated presets? It's 2019 and there are still no presets for, for example, GoPro standard settings like 100 and 200 FPS, Linear, Wide, and Superview, 2.7K and 4K, and so on? It seems very odd to me.

  12. Rewrap .MTS files from AVCHD into .MOV

    Rewrap .MTS files from AVCHD into .MOV
    AVCHD files contain h.264 codec. The Panasonic I record with uses a .MTS extension for the file within the AVCHD container. I would like to be able to re-wrap the .MTS files into something like a Quicktime container without transcoding them. It must be possible, EditReady can re-wrap them but Media Encoder tells me the same file, "The source file's video stream is not compatible with this preset."

  14. Burn in metadata (eg FPS, codec, frame size)

    In effects tab I can burn in timecode & clip name. Be useful to be able to burn in other metadata too.

    Could be added to clip name prefix/suffix in a similar way that Resolve works (eg %fps will insert the FPS for a clip

  15. Bug with Name Overlay: Source File Name (Without Extension)

    As of March 4, 2019.

    Bug with Name Overlay when "Source File Name (Without Extension)" is selected.

    Export works fine in Pr, but once queued to Media Encoder, it exports with the entire source file name even when "Source File Name (Without Extension)" is selected as the format.

  18. Carry over all Custom LUTs from Premiere to Media Encoder

    Have Media Encoder see when custom LUTs are being used in a project and either A) Automatically import them into ME from Premiere or B) Provide a warning that an unavailable Custom LUT is being used and then provide instructions to fix - i.e. copy custom LUTs from PP folder to ME LUT folder.

  20. SFTP upload from export settings

    It's long past time SFTP was supported through the publish preset settings. More and more servers are turning off unencrypted FTP access.
