Adobe Media Encoder CC 2017 Release | November 2016

The Adobe Media Encoder CC 2017 Release (November 2016) comes with a host of new features to help streamline the full production workflow - from initial ingest through to final output.

Destination Publishing Support for Behance

New in this release of Adobe Media Encoder CC 

Behance has been added to Adobe Media Encoder’s extensive destination publishing workflow, joining other social media publishing options such as YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, and Twitter. Now users can render and share videos directly to Behance from Adobe Media Encoder.

For more information, see Behance settings.

Render Alpha Channel Only

New in this release of Adobe Media Encoder CC 

This option can be used for sources that contain an alpha channel. When this option is enabled, only the alpha channel gets rendered in the output video. A grayscale preview of the alpha channel is shown in the Output tab. This setting is useful when exporting to formats like MXF that don't support transparency information. You can use the alpha channel-only output to define transparent areas of your video in third-party applications.

Panasonic AVC-LongG export support

Direct Export to XDCAM HD Disc

With this release, Adobe Media Encoder supports an option to directly export to an XDCAMHD Disc. 

QT XDCAM HD to MXF XDCAM HD Smart Rendering

You can smart render your QuickTime XDCAM HD sources in to an MXF wrapper.  It’s as simple as selecting the Enable Smart Rendering check box of a matching MXF OP1a preset. 

Note:

Adobe Media Encoder does not support smart rendering MXF XDCAM sources to QuickTime XDCAM.

HEVC Support for 10-bit output

Adobe Media Encoder supports HEVC 10-bit output. You can choose your preferred bit depth by selecting either Main or Main10 (for 8 or 10-bit respectively) under the Profiles setting of the HEVC Video tab.

New check box added to remove XAVC-Intra spec limitation on duration

A new check box, Sony device compatibility has been added to XAVC export settings. By default, this setting is deselected and generates output that always matches the full duration of your source. When checked, the output adheres to Sony specifications that may truncate the end of your file. 

Match Source option for still image formats

Match Source is now offered for all still image formats supported by AME, matching the source frame height, width, rate, field order, and aspect ratio. Older presets have been removed and replaced with the new Match Source versions.
