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. You can now combine multiple assets into a single clip in AME and let users edit the order of assets in the stitched clip after import.

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.
The familiar media browser is now included in Media Encoder and this feature helps you easily find and preview your media.
For more information, see Working with the new media browser.
