  1. AME from AE frame numbering?

    Frame numbering needs to be consistent when sending a render sequence out to AME. In AE you can overwrite specific parts of a sequence, retaining proper frame numbers. In AME the frame numbering ALWAYS starts at 0000 without any control, which makes rendering sequences to AME useless. Professionals use frame sequences for efficiency with motion graphics or FX. Limiting us to only rendering in AE or using 3rd party tools like Render Garden or BG Renderer shows a continued apathy towards your professional base. No, we don't need Premiere to work on a flipping Ipad, unless that's who your base…

  2. BUG: 2019 Crashes and leaves no info in Log file

    In the middle of a batch render Media Encoder 2019 crashes and leaves no trace that the operation ever failed.
    Steps:
    1) Select multiple files 20+ in Windows Explorer Drag and drop into Encoder.
    2) Hit render. Operation performs for a few minutes and then crashes.
    3) Nothing is recorded in the log file for the file it crashed on. In the export directory there are 2 file fragments A) The file attempted and B)ThatFile.mp4.xmp
    Please fix. It makes creating proxies impossible and works perfectly on the same machine in 2018

    Ae to AME 2019 is broken dynamic link issue? the Dynamic Link Server in Media Encoder is unable to connect when attempting to export AE compositions. In After Effects, the compositions don't transfer through the render queue or "Add to Media Encoder Queue" options.

  4. Esc key stops the render.

    I had 1hr long render sequence which got ‘stopped’ when I hit esc key. It should have atleast given a warning before stopping the render. I didnt even realise that media encoder window was active before hitting the esc key which was meant for something else.

  5. avi frame bug

    I work with raw AVI files that my timeline handles correct. The files are strange in everyway because it is often 18 or 16fps and also resolution is strange (1536x1144 pixels).

    In my timeline everything matches (same FPS, correct format) when exporting back to AVI it only handles 15FPS, even with match source button (wich is 18) it will come out as 15FPS. Also since last update the resolution does not go any higher then 1080 (but I need 1144). It just simply doesn't work.

  6. Export/Render from server

    Would be nice to be able to render/export the project from another machine like a server.

    We have the functionality store and access the footage from a server but when it comes to rendering the final version it ends up being done by the local PC. Would help those with lower end devices edit on their low end devices then set their powerful server to render/export their footage as they see fit and continue working from their device as normal while the server does the heavy workload.

    If this is already a thing then point me in right direction since…

  12. Reload source project or composition

    Add the ability to reload source Pr project or Ae comp in queue, for example, after submitting a job to AME you may need to change something in the original file, so instead of deleting and sending the job again, it would be very helpful to save the the Ae file then right click on the corresponding queue item and choose reload, et voila :)

  13. Option to add prefix and suffix

    Add option in preset or export options to add a prefix or suffix. Like in Illustrator's "Export for screens". This will save from renaming every file individually.

  14. BUG: media encoder doesn't update changes made to video

    I've found that this has happened a number of times now.
    After i've made edits to a video and then save, and then add to render queue. I scrub through the footage in media encoder to check it and find that the changes haven't been made, and obviously exporting it won't have changes made. I need to add the video 2-3 times again into the render queue before it updates. This is a massive waste of time as I sometimes need to do a whole bunch of videos quickly for clients.

  17. Always getting stuck in the middle of rendering

    It always ended up being stuck in the middle of rendering. It gets stuck at random timestamps. This is delaying my projects as I have to start all over the rendering again.

  18. Option to automatically restart failed tasks

    Add an option in the Media Encoder settings to automatically restart jobs in the queue that were aborted for some reason by placing it at the end of the queue. This will help redo a task automatically when the hard drive was disconnected for a little second due to hardware issues.

  19. Exporting certain resolution, renders 1 pixel short

    Bug Report - Whenever I render a file in certain resolution (let's say 2000x1125) in AME, the output I get is always 1 pixel short (2000x1124).
    Don't know the problem, but even adding a rendered footage for compression/conversion same thing happens.
    Tried changing the output settings, but it automatically slides down to 1124 (maintaining proportions doesn't matter).
    Please suggest workaround or fix.
