Hi,

 

I am trying to use a watch folder to export out hundreds of proxies during a shoot day.

 

The workflow is like this:

 

Action filmed -> Copied off camera card to Hard drive -> *Hard drive folder will be a designated "Watch folder"* -> AME will be auto encoder this raw footage to a proxy preset that will live locally on the comp for quick edits during the shoot.

This all works amazingly well, however when i copy over multiple clips into the Watch folder, AME encodes them, then places each "source" clip, into its our folder. Please see screenshot below

Is there any way to change it so that they all dont appear in their own subfolder?

 

Many thanks!

I would also like a fix to this incredibly frustrating quirk of AME.

Yes I have the same issue, there should be an option to move files to individual folders or group folder

Getting the same issue as soon as you copy a second clip to the watch folder it moves the files into sub folders and then wneh you look at the queue the encoder fails rendering the the whole batch automation useless. Very annoying.

Adobe why on earth did you do this.  

 

Why would your transcoding software change the structure of my source?  Do you not realize that we, in our small or medium sized media businesses, may have spent time and effort creating workflows that might be designed function a particular way -- that we devise systems / structures that work for us, that we get used to and we train our employees and collaborators on?  This is just silicon valley brain at its worst: thinking you're doing something that YOU think is a good idea, when all it does is "disrupt" what your users have grown accustomed to in a way that creates nothing but problems.  

 

Why would a *transcoding tool* change a source structure?  What version of information design for user experience says this makes sense?  

 

Please revert this, for the love of all that matters.

Plus 1! Please remove this behavior or at least have a switch to turn movement of source files off...
