  1. Allow queue to continue processing during publish to media sites

    In the modern world of multithreaded computers I can't for the life of me understand why Media Encoder has to wait for a file to publish before continuing with the queue. Please can we have uploading happen at the same time as processing. Sorenson Media Encoder used to do this 8 years ago. It can't be that hard.

    The problem is uploads of large files can take time so it end's up being quicker to let ME continue rendering and manually uploading the files - which has little to no effect on render times. For this reason I never use…

  2. Temporary .AAC or .M4V files don't delete after .MP4 is done exporting.

    I have been having this problem lately that when exporting After Effects files through Media Encoder with multiple projects that the .AAC or .M4V temporary files don't vanish after the .MP4 is ready with exporting.
    Attached is my .EPR file that I use.

  3. Please revert the icon colours to contrasting colours

    It's a minor irritation EVERY time I go to open an application of project file in a multi-project folder.

  4. ACES

    Yes, very soon I hope to see some development about integrating ACES 2065-1 in Adobe Creative Cloud. PPpro, AE, Photoshop, AME, etc. It is a must for color management. Thank you

  5. Adobe Video Player?

    Lot's of workflows need VLC as a player (even on Mac OS, since Avid and Apple can't find a way to play DNxHD in Catalina). Wouldn't it be great if Adobe featured its own player. That just plays all formats that AE and AME can export?

  7. Adding color Metadata tags to Rec 709 files

    AME is not able to export Rec709 Color Metadata like the Color Primaries and Color matrix to exported files. These information are crucial for interpreting the footage correctly in a color managed workflow. Up till now, i am using Resolve (free!!) to burn that information into my files. Could you pleas add this functionality? that'd be great for professional workflows.

  8. FFMPEG w/ a Command Line Option

    I'd love to have integration with FFMPEG to able to send command line presets into AME/Premiere/AE. I do stereo 360 video and need very specific versions rendered out and right now the best way I have is to render out to ProRes422 HQ and then send that through FFMPEG. Would love to save a step here and just render straight from the timeline to my ffmpeg settings.

  9. Allow to change multiple files in queue to specific out put location

    Why, oh why doesn't media encoder allow me to select multiple file sin a queue and set a specific output location? I would think this would be a given especially after how long this program has been around.

    Simply put again: I would/need to have the option to select multiple files in queue and set a specific output location/folder for each file - so allowing multiple output locations for whatever the file requires. I am constantly doing large jobs and multiple revisions on multiple versions of videos. To have to adjust each file separately is tedious and time consuming.

  14. Launching encode puts Mac to sleep

    The last two times I have hit go on an encode, my computer has immediately gone to sleep- which disconnects my NAS. It is a 2014 iMac and my current files are 4K but it shouldn't be taking a Nanna-nap every time I do an encode. Meanwhile there is a 5 sec delay on these key strokes while typing so I am a little worried about ME working the computer too hard.

  16. Media Encoder randomly exports glitched/bad frames

    When queueing a 4K30 timeline from Premiere into Media Encoder and exporting to H.265, random frames will display this pink/orange/purple vertical striped pattern in the exported file. This is not visible when editing nor is it in the source footage (ProRes Proxy 4K60 footage in multicam sequences).

    This did not seem to occur when exporting 4K60 H.265, only when using 4K60 source footage in a completely 4K30 timeline. This glitching occurred when Media Encoder actually successfully exported the file because many times, AME would display "Accelerated Renderer Error" until media from that sequence was copied into a new one and…

  17. H.265 4K60 exports randomly fail imported from Premiere; copying media to a new sequence temporarily fixes

    When a 4K60 (or even 4K30) sequence is queued in H.265 from Premiere, Media Encoder often fails with the error "Error compiling movie" and "Accelerated Renderer Error." Software rendering has no effect. Sequence is composed of multicam sequences with ProRes Proxy source footage at 4K60.

    Memory usage skyrockets and CPU/GPU usage drops shortly before failing and does so at random timecodes. Often times, copying the media from one sequence to a new sequence and queueing that sequence instead with no changes made to it since copying will allow Media Encoder to export that sequence only once before having to copy…

  18. Publish directly on Facebook Business

    At the moment, publish video to Facebook, goes straight to live, although business' prepare their posts in advance and using Facebook Business for both organic and paid posts. Publish here is best for this sense. Thank you, Sérgio.

  19. ANOTHER BUG- Encoder insists on .MXF wrapper and not .MOV

    I don't need MXF presets in ME- I don't need MXF output. I use a ProRes workflow throughout.

    Please show me how to tame the unwanted choices without a degree from MIT?

  20. BUG in 14.2-Hardware encode grayed out

    If I'm in Premiere Pro, 14.2 I can export out a h264 file with hardware encode turned on. If I take the same sequence and try to export out of media encoder, the hardware encoder is grayed out and only software encode is available.
