Media Encoder 15.4.1 is now available for download from the Creative Cloud desktop application. This release is recommended for all users.
This update fixes an issue where the XMP metadata is not written on Apple M1 when exporting AAC Audio.
To update the app open the Creative Cloud desktop application and click the Updates tab on the top-left. Find Media Encoder in the list and click Update.
Still unreliable with MOGRT.
I'll try more and different test drive when I dont have delivrables.
To confirm, it freezes without any sign or warning, you wait hours thinking it's doing what it should to find out hours later that it was stuck!
still very UNRELIABLE 😞
i wish i never updated it, the 3d previous version was working very well for me!
since this update the encoder is extremely slow, 50 times slower than exporting from premire, what is happening?
This version is not stable. Work at first then stop working.
I ad to go back to an older version to be able to export Video/media from Animate.
The latest versions of Media Encoder are unusable! I have multiple 3, 6, 15 second clips I'm rendering in h.264 from After Effects. It takes close to 10 minutes to read the XMP, connect to the project etc for each video. Sometimes I have 30 videos I'm rendering, it takes a whole day to just render. It used to spit them out in under a minute. I'm on a brand new Mac Pro 16 core 96 gb ram, there is no way it should be taking this long. Not only does it take 30 times too long - it renders everything out at 20 times what the size should be. A 1920x1080 6 second video, should not be over 300MB's. Fix your software!
i am running the latest versions of both media encoder and premier pro.
When i open media encoder im told there is an unexcpected error and it wont open.
Does Adobe ignore these forums?
It looks like they do. Yes.
and it is still NOT working
so, what's going wrong at ADOBE?
It's an iMAC 2019 with Radeon Pro 580X 8 GB
and the same on an older MacBookPro
The latest version does not work on my MacBook 2018 Radeon Pro 555X 4GB.
The projects either don't load into the queue, or it starts rendering and crashes instantly.
Reinstalling did not help, a fix is desperately needed!
I cannot render a project fom After effects won't connect in Media Encoder after the update was released. Why does this happen all the time?
It's not working, no export from AE to ME. Sometimes it works but then the rendering hangs forever.
Media Encoder no longer works, since I updated to Version 22 (Build 107) it just freezes when trying to connect to the After Effects project or dynamic link. It's happened on multiple compositions on multiple projects. Is my machine too old for the latest version? I'm on a 2017 Macbook Pro 2,8 GHz Quad-Core i7.
The only workaround is to export via Render Queue then import those exported files into Media Encoder to export the compressed versions.
I am having this identical issue. My workaround is to export an .avi (which takes much longer) and use an old version of Media Encoder to change it into an .mp4. Such a frustrating workaround for something that was working before this version. As this happens regularly with AME updates, the procedure is just use workarounds until they fix it. Maybe even downgrade your programs until then, but as for your projects that are already converted to v22.0, you'll have to use this workaround.
The latest version is not stable. I can"t render at all. When you all fix the software?
With every update this program stops working.
And since After effects can't render to mp4 any more, it's really getting in the way of work.
Please, Adobe, I'm asking you as a 10+ year user, do better.
Why is the qualiy slider gone for rendering GIF animations????? i cannot reduce the GIF size anymore... this is very frustating!! Every time adobe updates one of their softwares they just screw things up.
