  1. Wrong words in Swedish version

    I noticed that you use the wrong words in the Swedish version of Media Encoder. Files that are waiting to be transcoded are marked with "Färdig", and files that have been transcoded are marked with "Klar". Well, in Swedish - those two words mean the same thing: "Finished" or "Done". You can use "Färdig" as a word to describe that something is "ready", but in this case the usage is unfortunate as it can be interpreted wrongly. It would be better to use "Väntar" (Waiting), as they signify that the files are waiting to be encoded.

  2. Audio passthrough when making mp4 files

    Allow audio passthrough when making mp4 files. I'm using mp4 export to create very small proxies for multiple editors who are working from home and I can't use Media Encoder because some source footage has 4 channel audio and Media Encoder won't allow mp4 exports with 4 channel audio. I've been using Apple's Compressor when I come across this problem. Apple's Compressor allows audio passthrough for mp4 files. It's also a problem when drone footage has no audio, I would have to apply a custom preset with no audio while doing batches and this would be cumbersome so I'm using…

  3. I want you to add a function to specify the behavior such as sleeping or shutdown after rendering is completed.

  4. Add "duplicate" source menu item when stitching

    Nowadays, when I'm rendering small animation loops, I use Media Encoder to generate a bigger loop (10-15s from 2s clips), to be used in social media.

    I'd find it VERY practical to have a simple cmd/ctrl-D to duplicate an existing asset, and not having to drag and drop on the stitch button or in the stitch source panel.

    I could even create a stitching preset with intro/outro and drag and drop items…

  5. mpeg 2 (VOB) 16:9 files that are stretched to fill a 4:3 frame are cropped by Media Encoder and PP when imported. Bug?

    Footage contained on DVDs and encoded with a VOB extension isn't displayed correctly in Media Encoder or PP (The stretched image is cropped on import). Therefore I cannot convert the VOB files to a more regular codec like mp4 for use in my editing projects. I use third party app VLC instead.

  6. IDEA for VST: one central place to tell all adobe programs where to look for Third Party VST Plugins.

    It would be great to have ONE PLACE where I can fill in directories to look for VST Plugins for all adobe programs that use them.
    Now I have to do this separate in Premiere / After Effects / Audition...
    And Media Encoder does not see my third party vst plugins. :-(

    The bug is that Media Encoder is NOT RENDERING MY VST plugins.

  7. BUG: Third party VST plugins are not rendered in Media Encoder

    BUG: Third party VST plugins are not rendered in Media Encoder
    In premiere pro this works normal.

  8. Bug: Media Encoder queue won't process audio effects but Premiere export will

    This appeared to be a bug and a rather frustrating one to work out.

    Exporting a sequence from Premiere 14.9 would result in audio effects (applied in audio track mixer) being rendered out properly, but when the sequence was sent to a queue in Media Encoder 14.1, the audio effects weren't applied.

    I couldn't figure this out initially and had to re-render my hours worth of material via manually exporting from the export window.

    After speaking to someone on the Australian AVPUG on facebook, they explained that it can happen if there's a mismatch between versions, and indeed there was.…

  9. Switch off computer after encoding is finished

    I often put a list of files to render in the render queue so the computer will work in the night.
    I want media encoder to shut down the computer when the encoding is finished, so I will save energy and I don't hear the computer noise in the night

  10. the rendering in media encoder was stuck at the middle then not currently encoding

    I've been experiencing a render error which is whenever I export my composition/file from after effects the rendering at first was good until it gets at the middle one and then it was already finished even the render is not yet finished then when I go to my files the exported video was not there. I KNOW THAT I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO'S EXPERIENCING THIS KIND OF PROBLEM SO PLEASE FIX IT BECAUSE I HAVE A LOT OF EDITS THAT IS IN THE QUEUE.

  11. Render Checkpoint System

    Hi there! I'm an intermediate editor/VFX artist and coming from some other rendering pipelines like Houdini and Maya, I thought a useful feature if it was possible in AME would be some form of render checkpointing.

    I recently worked on a project with many different video/audio layers in Premiere and some dynamically linked comps from After Effects with the final quality render estimated to take 12-16 hours in AME. That's understandable, it was 4K with Lumetri coloring and a very high target bitrate and effects on many shots, but I started to run into problems with exporting from Premiere or…

  12. After finished job: show the render time.

    While Rendering I can see how much time went by. After the job is finshed, I can't see anymore how long it took.

  13. Multiple GPU renderer

    It's so difficult to adobe enable a Media Encoder (with Premiere and After effecs) to use Multiple GPU??? Why is it so hard? DaVinci uses it, and I actually think seriously to change my workflow for Resolve Studio. I am not happy or satisfied with the performance of the Adobe CC package, for some years I have suffered from lack of performance.

  15. Mogrt's completely broken

    15.0 AME will hang when it starts rendering a Mogrt that appears as online in Premiere, but I guess it doesn't like it in Encoder? no error message, just stop rendering and hangs, doesn't move.

  16. Add Rec.2100HLG as an export option to H.265

    I think if Adobe could somehow add Rec.2100HLG as a Mastering Display Color Volume (Color Primaries) Export option for HEVC/H.265; like how it's an option with QuickTime, it would make everyone's lives better! I have a threadripper 3970X so I don't care if it's software or hardware. Please Adobe, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Add Rec.2100HLG as an export option to H.265 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
    Rec2020 just isn’t the same and doesn’t show up as HDR on YouTube.

  18. Adobe questionnaire pop up window.

    So I filmed about 80 4K videos, added them into Premiere and selected 'make proxy', selected the destination and hit ok and walked out of the room expecting all these vids would be done by morning. I wake up and it didn't even start the process because Adobe pops up a window about the 1-10 question, stopping the process. Now I'm several hours. behind. Here's my idea...ask the ********* question in an email or text.

  19. 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.…

    AME Web Service is not starting since the release of 2021. It is the same for 15.0, 15.1 and 15.2. Version 2020 (14.9) is working fine on the same computer.
