  1. Read JSON files

    It would be nice Media Encoder could read JSON files as ni es as After Effect. If you send a compo to render queue, it would be render text layers as “Io”. Hope you fix it

  2. Add ability to convert HEIC files (standard on iOS) to anything.

    Pretty unbelievable it doesn't work even after installing windows HEIC. Media encoder is a paid subscription and works well with after effects most the time. Media encoder however is subpar compared to free cloud converters when it comes to HEIC and GIF. What exactly happens to our subscription cost if a free software is able to create better results than a billion dollar corporation?

  3. Bug: Renders with missing media even though it is not missing

    In Premiere, I can export a sequence with motion graphic templates and it renders correctly. If I send the same sequence to Media Encoder the media asset in the mogrt goes missing and does not prompt me it is missing it renders it with the media as color bars. I only noticed it in the render preview window in Media Encoder.

  4. moving sources and encoded outputs

    Hi, I would like to see an option in AMEs preferences to turn off that moving of sourcefiles. This makes it almost impossible to set up a workflow that relies on creating versions and using Proxies in After effects, since they are moved away. Just laeve everything where it is and create a textfile to check if a clip has been rendered already or not. Maxon does it very well with Teamrender. Please!

  5. High Frame Rate transcoding does not go higher than 60fps

    Plain and simple: bring back high frame rate encoding. It was in AME 2019 and at some point it was removed. Could this have anything to do with conforming to 'broadcast standards' related to timecode? As time code doesn't exist in formats faster than 60fps. Find a way around it because this is an essential editing feature request. ProRes is not solely for broadcast delivery, in fact it is the backbone of most editing pipelines who choose to not edit native.

  6. Fix mercury engine!

    Like premier pro media encoder destroys my projects. Made a slideshow with a few effects like an outline and a shadow.
    Result in media encoder is half all placements are off, effects only show up occasionally.
    Was pretty happy with photoshop and lightroom whihc is why i decided to use adobe products for video as well. The experience is plain bad, loses my time and costs quite a lot, even when not factoring in loss of time.
    Very much disappointed,
    Writing this while downloading da vinci resolve.

  7. Please allow ME to support SWF / FLA files directly.

    Hi team, current support for Adobe Animate is not good at all. The workflow feels more like an improvised workaround: Animate is forced to convert SWFs to MOVs before sending them to Media Encoder which is really a problem because every video is effectively rendered twice, once in Animate and twice in ME; this on top of the fact that video rendering in Animate is painstakingly slow. This is what ME is supposed to do, offload the rendering process for Adobe's motion and video apps. SWF is the main output generated by Animate to this day, please support it properly.

  8. 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…

  10. auto delete finished file

    I want the source file to be deleted automatically when the encoding (translation) process is finished. I translate a lot of videos. I'm running out of disk space. Therefore, when the encoding (translation) is finished, the source file (input file) should be deleted. just drop the output file. Such a setting is required in the AME program.

    GPU: Nvidia 1080 TI
    Driver: 466.11

    Usage: MP4 Footage 4K + Lumetri + some small AE Overlays

  12. Make changing presets and destinations logical.

    AME is very contra intuitive regarding to choosing a preset for multiple queue items. There is an incomplete popup-menu, and we can not drag a preset to all selected items at once.

    -Add User Presets and Aliases to the Popup Menu

    -When multiple items are selecting, set a preset for all of thos by double clicking it in the Preset Browser, or dragging it to one of the selected queued items.

  13. Please fix the hide shortcut function for Encoder

    Media encoder 15.0-15.2 no longer supports the hide and minimize features via hotkey, nor is it in the hotkeys options. The older versions supported such basic functionality. I have to click on the minimize button to push it to the dock but command+M and command+H do nothing. Very frustrating. Please fix this.

  16. Hardware acceleration repair

    Pre-settings (bitrate) do not match in final export when hardware acceleration on. Everything is ok when software option is activated.

  17. Option to set alignment in NAME overlay preset

    Sure i can make a preset to put the overlay in a specific place, but they are always center justified. So for longer names, it has to be adjusted each time - which is like not having a preset at all.

  20. Overwrite image sequences is actually impossible

    I would like to be able to overwrite a sequence of images. Actually, it is not possible: AME creates a new sequence each time with a ~$ prefix in its name.

    Thank you !
