  1. 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?

  3. Watch folder/image sequence/waiting user controlled image count

    Watch a folder where image sequences are rendered but wait a user define image count before processing.
    ex : watch a folder or sub folders >if watch folder or subfolder have x files then start batch processing this folder

  4. Auto Versioning up when adding the same comp/project again or duplicating in the encoder

    right now it makes this
    whatevernamev0011
    whatever
    namev0012 etc
    and would be much nicer if it could recognize the ending _v001, v002 etc

  5. Media Encoder Bug

    In the last two weeks, it has been impossible for me to convert a 3-minute .mov video to H.264 with AME. I have output a .mov file with video encoding, 100% quality from Premiere. The file is around 3.8 GB. When I try to convert this to H.264, I either get a direct failure with the file not even starting to encode or it gets stuck on a frame after about 90 seconds of footage, rendering the rest of the video as a still frame. I have tried this repeatedly with both CC2017 and CC2018 with two different videos. CC…

  6. BUG: Audio Effects not rendering

    When I render through Media Encoder 12.1.1 to h.264 some Audio Effects such as compressors are totally ignored. Rendering directly through Premiere works though. This CC 2018 is still a total mess...

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. BUG: Media Encoder Sequence Renders Super-imposed Elements as Upper Field Only

    If I have a super-imposed element (with transparency) in a sequence that is sent to Media Encoder...e.g. a lower third, the result is that the lower third graphic only shows up on the upper field. If I choose to render directly from within Premiere, the output is correct (on both fields). It only occurs when sending the job over to Media Encoder.

    Specifically I found this to be present in lower thirds generated from After Effects and imported as Graphics Essentials. I also found it when a black mask was drawn over top of a jpg.

  13. % based quality control for h265 and h264 encoding

    We should be able to set a % of the original quality in the encoding setting so the user can more easily get the bitrate they need compared to the original file.
    this will be great for re-encoding h264 to h265 for example to get the files smaller without checking the bitrate on every different file.
    The unofficial webm plugin supports this, so why not the official ones?!

  16. droplet

    I would be awesome to have the ability to create Droplets like FCP Compressor used to do.
    Just a icon where you drop a file and automate the process to do the encoding process that you choose when you create the droplet!

  17. Improve "Remaining time" estimate when rendering Character Animator scenes

    When rendering a Character Animator scene, the "Elapsed" time counter starts immediately but it does not have an estimate for the "Remaining" time until it has done some thinking. (This can take minutes for some scenes.) As soon as it starts generating frames, the "Remaining" counter is updated. This is all fine.

    The problem is the Remaining estimate is based on the initial "think" time plus the rate at which it has been generating frames. So the Remaining time initial estimate is higher than it needs to be and drops rapidly.

    The correct way to compute the remaining time is…

  18. Render with preview files fails with third-party audio plug-ins

    When encoding a Premiere sequence that uses VST or AU audio plugins and the 'Use Previews' setting enabled Media Encoder freezes on the first frame with audio, proceeding to fail with the error:

    "Error compiling movie. Exporter returned bad result."

    Exporting direct from Premiere with the exact same settings works as intended.

  19. Keyframes in audio effects ignored (BUG)

    When exporting to h.264 from Premiere Pro CC 2018, the Media Encoder ignores the first set of keyframes in audio effects. This results in a weird jumps in the audio effects at the beginning of the video. To replicate:

    1) Apply the Mastering audio effect to a clip
    2) Create some keyframes with initial values for a few parameters
    3) Create a second set of keyframes later in the clip that modify those same parameters
    4) Create a third set of keyframes modifying those parameters
    5) Export the video to h.264 mp4 using Media Encoder

    Expected behavior:

    Video should contain…

  20. Sometimes, some audio tracks don't export

    Render are inconsistent since the last update.
    Using version 12.1, Build 171.
    I am always forced to check the whole rendered files because sometimes, some audio tracks don't get rendered. When opening the project in Premiere to confirm everything was ok, the track that wasn't rendered now doesn't play, although it should, and I have to mute and unmute the track, save the project, render again.
