Preset Improvements

New in this release of Adobe Media Encoder CC 

The list of Match Source presets has been enhanced and changed with Adobe Media Encoder.

Collaborating using Team Projects

New in this release of Adobe Media Encoder CC 

This release introduces Team Projects. Team Projects is a hosted service that lets editors and motion graphics artists work collaboratively in projects within Adobe Media Encoder, Prelude CC, Premiere Pro CC, and After Effects CC. This service adds deep collaboration features such as version history and smart conflict resolution. Post-production professionals can share their edits and get the latest changes from collaborators, allowing concurrent changes to happen on a single project. The feature is powerful for workflows where you can ingest clips in Prelude at the same time when visual effects and motion graphics are being done in After Effects and the edit is being refined in Premiere Pro.

Limitations:

  • You cannot modify or share a production in AME; you can only encode Team Project assets within AME.
  • To view your Team Project file in AME, ensure that you are logged in with an Enterprise or Team Project ID. You can be logged in to Creative Cloud, Premiere Pro, or other Adobe applications.
  • When AME is installed as a stand-alone application on a clean system, you are prompted to log in. If you have Premiere Pro, After Effects, or other Adobe apps on the same system, AME uses those credentials.

Embedding color profiles in JPEG files from After Effects compositions

New in this release of Adobe Media Encoder CC

Note:

Relink assets in sequence

New in this release of Adobe Media Encoder CC 

You can now automatically relink assets in a Premiere Pro project while moving them to another machine. Previously, when Media Encoder scouted for media files located relative to a project file path, those assets showed as Media Offline.

With the new enhancement, you can move your Premiere Pro projects and media files into a new location on a different computer. Relink can be done only if your assets retain the same relative path to the project. Once you move the project and media files, import the project file into Adobe Media Encoder and all media are automatically relinked.

Publish to Stock

New in this release of Adobe Media Encoder CC 

This release introduces the ability to automatically upload exported videos to the Adobe Stock Contributor portal. Adobe Stock gives you millions of images, graphics, and videos built right into Photoshop, Illustrator, and all your favorite apps. For a seamless login from Adobe Media Encoder, ensure that you accept the terms at Adobe Stock.

Prevent Premiere Pro from sending pause command to Adobe Media Encoder queue

New in this release of Adobe Media Encoder CC 

This release introduces the ability to encode in Adobe Media Encoder and simultaneously playback or scrub in Premiere Pro. Earlier there was no option to prevent Adobe Media Encoder from pausing the queue when scrubbing or playing back media in Premiere Pro.

Note:

This feature works only if you queue to Adobe Media Encoder from the Export settings dialog box in Premiere Pro.

Note:

To prevent playback issues, ensure that your computer meets the system requirements, since Adobe Media Encoder is simultaneously encoding and writing to disk.

Adobe Media Encoder now has clearer color depth and alpha channel information in bits-per-channel.

This feature also:

  • Eases understanding of the bit depth settings.
  • Indicates when an alpha channel is rendered.

Note:

This feature is applicable to QuickTime exporter only.

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.

Adobe Media Encoder now allows you to ingest media files from a camera onto a local drive so that you can quickly start editing in Premiere Pro.
