  1. Bug: Rendering of AE project fails part way through in latest version (15.0, 2021)

    I can't complete any renderings from After Effects using the latest (15.0) version of Media Encoder. It fails partway through with an error. This is a 1080p project rendering to h.264 using the Vimeo preset.

    Related post here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-media-encoder/encoding-failed-component-h-264-of-type-exporter-selector-9-error-code-3/m-p/11899051#M12005

    I downgraded Media Encoder and After Effects to the previous (2020) versions of both, and successfully rendered using those versions.

    I've also successfully avoided the error by rendering directly out of AE into an Uncompressed file, and re-encoding with Media Encoder into h.264.

  2. Media Encoder with closed caption option

    It would be wonderful feature if Media encoder would have to option to embaded closed captions in the transcoding, available as well with the watchfolder option. For exemple, if a closed caption format like STL or SCC has the same file name as the video, Media Encoder associate them.

    Thank you and hopefully will find this comment useful

  3. Add simple keyboard shortcuts for the queue

    Specifically for reordering files in the queue; to my knowledge, the only way to reorder queued files is to manually drag them into place. It would be nice if there were basic shortcuts for shifting a file (or multiple files) up or down in the queue without having to drag them around. Or even a shortcut for placing a file at the top/bottom of the queue.

  4. La sauvegarde de la file d'attente ne peut pas être ouverte dans l'onglet fichier. perdu aussi a la fermeture de ME

    ajouter a l'onglet "fichier" :
    "ouvrir une file d'attente"

    Pourquoi ne pas "associer" une file d'attente dans le(s) projet(s) projet PR, AE, ... ?

  5. PREVENT ADOBE PRODUCTS FROM STEALING FOCUS

    It's simple: please stop allowing your programs to steal focus from one another (or anything at all for that matter). How many times a day when working in Premiere do I click "ctrl-m" to export a clip or video, then continue my work on the timeline in Premiere only to have Adobe Media Player STEAL FOCUS when I don't care AT ALL that it is importing something into its queue. I know it's importing. I requested that. DO IT IN THE BACKGROUND. There is NO REASON WHATSOEVER to interrupt my continued work just to make me WATCH THE IMPORT PROGRESS.…

  6. See live rendering on smartphone

    Hello everyone,

    As I was waiting for my videos on Media Encoder to be done, I was thinking of a feature that can let me check the status of the queue and a preview of the encoding video directly on my smartphone, thanks to an app or a page on my cloud I could check on a web browser. That would be a really good feature when you are away from your computer but still want to see if everything is going okay. I know we all hate when we watch the renders and realise something went wrong!

    Have a…

  7. Audio Error when Ingesting Varicam LT footage from Premiere

    I ran into an issue in Premiere 15.1 where my Varicam LT 4k footage had all of it's 4 channel audio turned into white noise. This was not an issue in 15.0. I reverted back, but when I created Proxies for that footage, Media Encoder 15.1 turned the audio into white noise again.

  11. Low priority option and CPU cores quantity

    Add an option to lower the encoding priority, to leave the computer usable. It will then be possible to continue editing or other tasks without having a slow PC to use, even if the encoding takes longer of course.

  12. Add option to copy video to additional location after encode is completed

    This software is called media ENCODER so technically this doesn't really fall under it's rubric but, since one can queue multiple encodes to different locations it would also be helpful to have post encoding options such as the ability to copy a finished job to multiple locations, this allows one to automatically output to all needed locations, but also avoid unnecessary re-encoding. It's just a convenience thing.

    I am often encoding to an external drive to be used as a delivery medium, but that is not the location that will be used for archiving of the project. A given encode…

  15. Permission inheritance for temp files and folders

    When rendering AE-comps via AME, the created _AME folder and the tmp.aep files lack the correct permissions, resulting in failed renders with the log underneath.

    When manually changing the permissions in MacOS (select the parent folder and Apply to Enclosing Items), AME can render it.

    My request: make sure that all created folders and files inherit permissions form their parents.

    Log:


    • Source File: /[path]aep_AME/tmpAEtoAMEProjec[this was my filename].aep

    • Output File: [this was my output path]

    • Preset Used: DNX HQX 1080p 25

    • Video:

    • Audio:

    • Bitrate:

    • Encoding Time: 00:00:00
      04/28/2021 10:54:54 AM : Encoding Failed


    Could not read from the source. Please check…

  16. Media Encoder 15.1 does not render all tracks to stereo AAC

    Found a bug in Media Encoder 15.1.

    User action:
    Try to transcode clip with 12 tracks of audio into stereo AAC in Media Encoder

    Expected behavior: All 12 audio tracks get mixed down to two stereo tracks in exported clip

    Actual behavior: Only first 6 tracks get mixed down to two stereo tracks, and tracks 7-12 are silenced

    For what it's worth, trying the same thing out of Premiere 15.0.0 directly does actually work: all 12 tracks do correctly get mixed down into two stereo AAC tracks.

    This is on Windows 10 19042.928.

    Attached is an image of the track…

  19. Avoid window to steal focus of premiere

    I would like an option to force the window of media encoder to be minimized, so every time I send something to the queue doesn't still the focus of premiere and I can continue working. When I have smalls edits in a lot of videos is annoying to waste time in minimizing the screen 1000 times.

  20. Adding Remuxing/Multiplexing option to export with copy codec

    Hello Everybody,

    I would like to ask if there could be an option added maybe to premiere or especially to Adobe Media Encoder to be able to Remux files to different containers.

    Option also without transcoding just copy the CODECS from input file and change only the container.

    Example there is one really important remuxing that is needed and there are just so limited the options for someting so simple.

    In Broadcasting Centers there are still a lot of equipment that only support Transport Stream (TS), as there is only option from Adobe for MPEG2 and not for H264 which…
