Media Encoder CS6 doesn't export any of the common formats like .MOV, .AVI, .AIFF .WAV, etc.

When I queue exports from Premiere CS6,  Media Encoder totally ignores any custom export settings, and chooses some completely different system defined default settings, which I did not choose in Premiere. In previous versions Premiere would always pass the encoding settings to the Media Encoder.

Update: When I tried to import the custom settings into Adobe Media Encoder, I got an error message: "Preset could not be imported. No exporter found for this preset." Then I've realized, that AEM doesn't even have a QuickTime export format!!! Actually it offers only 4 export formats: H.264 (MP4), FLV, F4V, and MP3. Then, when I queue an export with Premiere with one of those 4 formats, then AEM would accept it. Anything else - it just wouldn't work!!! So wait - am I missing something, or I literally cannot queue any other common format exports with AEM??? I need to work with MOV, AVI, AIFF, WAV etc. files, which all aren't accepted by the Media Encoder... Or am I missing something???

This is ridiculous. I am becoming quite fed up with Premiere CS6 bundle - in 20 minutes I have found already 4 diferent features, that worked in previous versions, and work no more in CS6

I don't know how it worked in CS5.5 - anybody?

It looks like you have the encoding option available with Flash.  You may need to reinstall PP to get the additional presets. (And make sure it's activated.)

1. Open this file:

On MAC: /Applications/Adobe Media Encoder CS6/Adobe Media Encoder CS6.app/Contents/Resources/txt/AddExporterList.txt

On PC: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder CS6\txt\AddExporterList.txt

2. Back it up to some other location.

3. Then delete everything from it and paste this:

# MediaCore Plugins

# AME Plugins

AudioWriter

WinMediaWriter

# AME Plugin Formats

MPEG4

H.264 Blu-ray

4. Save it, and relaunch Media Encoder - voila! It worked for me and many others.

Warning - this works only partially - after using this solution I have lost all the Flash encoding capabilities (can't encode FLV), so for this I am using AME CS5.5...

Thanks man. Worked for me too. CS6.

Couldn't figure out why specifying Mpeg2 and MOV gave me f4v files.

And 1.5 years later this problem still exists! Nice work Adobe.

Same problem.  On premiere I set it to export to .MOV.  But when it is queued on media encoder, it changes the output file format to .F4V.

If I export directly from premiere, then the file format remain at .MOV.  But I have 50 videos to export, so can't do it one by one.

I already tried the 'correct answer' but it did nothing for me.

Any other suggestions?
