The latest version of Adobe Media Encoder includes the Sync Settings feature similar to the feature available in Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and several other Creative Cloud applications.

Sync Settings enable to keep your settings such as keyboard shortcuts, preferences, and user presets synchronized across multiple machines. All settings can be uploaded to your Creative Cloud account and then downloaded and applied on other machines.

Sync settings

To start synchronizing your settings, click File > Sync Settings > Sync Settings Now.

Enter your Adobe ID and password to authenticate your account to the Creative Cloud.

To manage the settings that are synchronized, choose Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Media Encoder > Preferences (Mac OS) and click Sync Settings.

Select the preferences to synchronize and the frequency when Adobe Media Encoder should synchronize them:  

  • Current:
    • Preferences/Settings
    • Workspace Layouts
    • Keyboard Shortcuts
    • Presets
  • Last Sync:
  • When Syncing:
    • Ask My Preference
    • Always upload settings
    • Always download settings
  • Automatically clear settings on application quit - Clear settings restores AME to pre-sync state. Enable this option to clear the user profile when you quit the Adobe Media Encoder application. When the application starts up the next time, the original preferences that were set (before you logged in with your Adobe ID) will be restored.

Note:

Preferences that specify absolute paths or are dependent on system hardware will not be synchronized.

Note:

To delete sync settings, click here and select clear settings.
