    Yep...this is a real problem. We have 5 HP High end workstations working 7 days a week on broadcast news, and Media Encoder has become the weakest link in our workflow chain.

    It really needs to be a priority for your development team. You have chosen to make Media Encoder the default output option, especially for After Effects, by not providing all render options in the onboard renderer. Therefore, you owe it to your customers to ensure this is Rock Solid.

    Currently, it is not good enough.

    Hi all.

    I found this issue upon upgrade...and fixed it.

    Firstly I updated to the latest Video Card drivers. No change.

    I then explored plugin issues. Again, no change.

    As I had just updated using creative cloud, and it pulled my settings across from previous version, I figured maybe this was the issue. Something old holding things back.

    So in Preferences, Media & Disk Cache I hit CLEAR DATABASE & CACHE in the CONFORMED MEDIA section.

    It crashed AE. :|

    I re-opened it and did it again. After an eternity, it finished...and bam! No more lag.

    I can't guarantee this is the problem for all, but it fixed things for me.

    Cheers

    How would this work?

    There are a few things. Anonymous commented in 2018 about the issue where if the record button is hit on a mobile, it locks the orientation to the phone at the time. Often the phone is then turned around to shoot wide, or vertical, and it displays sideways. Probably locked into the file header.

    So yes, a simple 90 flip would be great. Keep the tools we have in terms of cropping, scaling etc, and it would be really handy and easy.

    The other feature would be what YouTube, Facebook and a bunch of other social video tools do...ADD BACKGROUND.

    My wish: If you use SCALE TO FIT...the remaining space is filled with a SCALED TO FILL version of the same thing, just a little darker, and blurred.

    Yes, it's something we can do easily in Premiere or After Effects....but it still takes time, and in a daily NEWS cycle, we are processing many many phone videos of all sizes and aspects....and a simple one size fits all MEDIA ENCODER solution would be ideal.

    So lets face it. Stability is a big issue with After Effects. I have sent more than fifty fault reports to you over the last week (AE 2020). I have used the software daily since version 01.

    Every time there is stability issues, the obvious request is remove you plugins, and test stability. Then re-install them 1 by 1 until you can rectify the fault. This works sometimes, not every time, and takes forever to do if you have a lot of plugins installed. It's just lost time on a grand scale.

    So make it easy for us. Give us a plugin panel in the preferences, that lists the the installed plugins, and allows us to de-activate them, them re-activate them, as required.

    Doesn't sound too much to ask.
