Hi,

Transcoding an HD 1080 10-bit YUV 30" spot to DV PAL is taking 15 minutes. This is completely irrational on a high specs computer. In comparison, transcoding the same clip on earlier version took under 1 minute.

Anyone else noticed the problem?

Thanks,

Hazem

Same for me. Rendering same sequence in After Effects is 10-30x quicker than in Media Encoder. Latest versions of all programs.

CUDA or no CUDA doesn't matter, same speed. iMac Late 2013, 3,5 GHz Intel Core i7, 32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4096 MB.

Please fix as sending a sequence to Media Encoder and letting it do its thing in the background and me working in AE is important in many of my projects.

Same here. New build using i7-6800K 6 core (12 thread) with 32 GB DDR4 Ram and GTX 1060 with 6GB GDDR5 and a 12 second video at 1080P has been rendering for over a half hour. Miserably slow. Cuda is enabled for rendering.

clearing the media cache did not help me at all.. i have an intel i7 6950x 10 core processor yet rendering a minute and a half 4k footage with unsharp filter and some color grading takes 7 hours.. I happen to have 2 Samsung Pro SSD drives and 1 Samsung NVME m.2 drive 64gb ram and still adobe encoder load on the processor is only between 12 to 15 percent. i tried every single solution on the internet. i did put my media files in a diferent ssd drive than whenre the footage is but nothing worked. i am rendering to h.264 and h.265 while h.265 takes about 7 hours h.264 could take up to 12 hours. That is crazy and adobe should fix this turtle speed issue.

Same issue, Adobe is using approximately 4GB of the 16GB it's allocated and at the most 20% of the CPU. Trying to export from AE into ME is painfully slow (5-10min just to see it in ME and in that time AE is unusable)

I have tried emptying the cache folder and every other trick that I could find online but since 2017 it has at the most only used 25% of the system.

Please can someone help as I can't in good conscience charge the customer for 2hours render what I used to charge 10min

I'm having similar issues trying to send Premiere sequences over to AME. With CUDA on, the render is very slow but I do have a lot of Magic Bullet effects in the sequence which tends to slow things down. This, however is much slower than it ever has been. Even more of a problem is almost every time I send a render to AME it fails... sometimes at 5%, sometimes at 50 or 60% (which is AWESOME, since by that time 2 hours have passed). I'm currently rendering straight out of Premiere at a snail's pace. ADOBE, THIS IS A PROBLEM, PLEASE FIX THIS CRAP ASAP. I've literally been up all night just trying to get a few renders out for client review.

I did get a render to work with AME by shutting off CUDA, but of course it took about 3-4X as long as it should have. This is not only an h.264 problem either. I tried rendering out a DNX sequence with AME and it also failed.

Same here.  There's some serious resource mismanagement in the 2017 versions of Premiere Pro and AME.

So angry right now. 12 hours to encode a PPro sequence that used to take 2 hours to render. How do I roll back?

I'm trying this: Render Media Encoder for the short sequences and simultaneously run PPro to render direct the longer pieces. It is the only way I can get 100% CPU utilization. But, it's still slow as sh*t.
