  1. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. Externally Updatable Direct Publishing Dashboard Panel

    I would really like to see more work be done on the Direct Publishing features that make it more automated when posting to social media, My suggestion would be to have the ability to have either a file or panel (some sort of dashboard) that has default content and an area to add a description that then gets updated into each preset in any given designated watch folder settings, essentially automatically propagating to all platforms with related Tags updated in the dashboard and only having to render out one file and thus posting to all platforms (using predetermined Presets nested…

  8. Encoding bitr rate is below the setting

    BUG: Bitrates of exported files are significantly lower than the bitrate settings. Setting a Constant Bit Rate of 20Mbps yields a bitrate of 4.3Mbps on the finished file. The quality of the image is irrelevant as many media outlets have minimum bitrate requirements for deliverables.

  10. Fix whatever causes effects to render differently than they do in After Effects

    In Media Encoder 2018 I've noticed some effects, like Particular are rendering different than they do in an After Effects render, like there are way more particles.

  14. Apply in&out points to multiple clips

    Add a "trim" option to presets, with 2 horizontal radio buttons for "Trim by" and "Exact timecode", followed by in and out fields.

    One is relative, the other is absolute.
    If the trims are impossible, render will flag a warning (or fail) with the appropriate message (e.g. "Trim values exceed the clip's duration.")

    (PS While we're at it, add scaling options to presets, too.)

  16. CBR exporting at a set rate does not result in the correct bitrate on the final output file. This appears to be a known bug.

    When choosing CBR and selecting a desired bitrate for H264 output, the reesulting file video settings do not match the output, i.e., a 25Mbs CBR setting results in a 10.5Mbs VBR file when inspected with Quicktime Player info, or MediaInfo.

  17. Media Encoder using up all RAM and crashing my computer on batch exports

    Media encoder always worked fine for me up until the first 2018 CC update. Since then AME has been pretty close to useless. AME will use up all of my machine's RAM, (64gb) no matter how much I limit or increase the RAM usage within preferences. I've set all of my cache and memory folders to an external drive and I've exhausted every option to try and address this issue both on my own and with the assistance of adobe customer support and nothing works. The latest update of AME did not fix the issue either. It is killing the…

  18. Grain effect to prevent banding of colors (OnionRings)

    AE Grain effect is one of the powerful grain Ive seen.
    I mainly use it to cancel banding (OnionRings) when encoding to MP4s.
    It should be used as effect inside of encoder+be much faster because it is a very heavy effect.

    Adding grain to a file makes it easy to get rid of banding, AE Grain effect knows:
    1. To put grain in places based on highlights and shadows(where the risk of banding is usually high)
    2. To put different amount of noise on different color channels. (Usually its enough for the encoder to have more detail in the blue…

  19. Automatic selecting of outputs

    Selecting similar outputs based on their position in the Q:
    FOR EXAMPLE: In the Q there are 3 files, every file has 3 outputs:
    1. User select 2 Files.
    2. User click on a button or keyboard shortcut to enable: Select Similar Outputs by Index"
    3.User Click on First output
    4. AME select all first outputs of selected files.

    the same, if user clicks on the "Similar" button but selects second output of selected files.

  20. Automatic reading of files

    When reading sequences of files AME Should do it automatically from folders. Choosing one folder and AME will load all sequences it recognize in that folder tree. Like AE but little bit better.

    Maybe even give us a list of formats it recognizes for us to choose from:

    "AME Found files in this folder and its folder tree. please select which files you want to load to the Q and how:"

    name.jpg (read as a seq) choose to: load as seq load as files
    name.mov
    nameB.jpg (read as a seq) choose to: load as seq load as files
    name.png (read…
