I want to give adobe money in exchange for Media Encoder. I do not require other Adobe applications. After extensive searching, I have not found a way to do this.
What are my options.
There is no such thing. AME shares technology with Premiere Pro and several other apps and thus is dependent on at least one of those apsp being installed for things to work correctly. Or in other words: If you want AME, you have to sign up for Premiere, After Effects, Audition, Photoshop and so on - at least one of those.
Adobe Media Encoder CC does not depend on any other Adobe apps since it can be installed separately as a trial version. A trial version does not exclude any of the libraries or features from the full version. The reason for the absence of the option of purchasing Adobe Media Encoder CC separately is purely economic one.
Adobe Media Encoder is not sold separately ,you need to buy a Premiere Pro or After Effects subscription .
Adobe doesn't want my money -- got it.
That is NOT what was said... Adobe will gladly take your money, but you can't get what you want by itself
You might as well walk into an automobile dealership and say you only want the steering wheel, not the car
My apologies, a post caffeinated effort...
So a standalone Premiere cloud lease would include media encoder, rather than that being two applications?
Though your analogy is broken. A standalone media encoder would do exactly one thing: Encode media. A steering wheel accomplishes no function on its own. There are standalone media encoders on the market, so it's not an absurd request.
Sure I totally get it: I regularly visit my car dealer and test a steerig wheel. And if I like it, then I purchas the car, though I only want the wheel.
What is really problematic is that you offer links to Buy ME everywehre which lead to a page that offers everything except a hint about how to get ME. Well done!
I already have a Photoshop CC and LightRoom CC subscription...so Adobe is going to force me to buy another product to use Media Encoder --- purchase another product I do NOT need. However, I DO NEED Media Encoder. This sucks.
YA! Media Encoder is great. Love it. I gave Premiere a shot for my home use, but decided to just continue using Avid (life's too short, ya know?). I just feel kinda dumb paying $20 a month for Premiere at this point just because I like ME. I would happily pay about $10/month for ME.
