I believe it's a companion app installed automatically when you install Premiere Pro.
David this inquiry is coming up quite often suddenly. Is there something in specific which is prompting you to look for the Adobe Media Encoder?
Not sure I understand your question. I am prompted to look for it because I want to use it to encode media. I don't have other video editing software installed because I don't need any.
Ok thank you David. I was curious because we had several separate posts all recently with the same question.
I am also looking for it and the reason I am looking for it because I currently have CS4 Creative Suite and am moving to Creative Cloud. I dont see it mentioned anywhere on the Creative Cloud (CC) downloads page.... this might be why you are gettign a lot of questions about it. Media Encoder is essential for folks who are creating videos with Premier so it may be bundled with Premier Pro CC, but I cant see anything which specifies this as being correct.
Brian have you installed Premiere Pro CC?
I have not downloaded any CC yet as I want to be sure. Before I do
Can i also get it if i bought After Effects?
No. It was only bundled with Premiere Pro.
