Hi guys, is there a way to render the frame.io extension preview without using Media Encoder? I would like to render only using Premiere without opening another adobe program.
Um ... MediaEncoder is the primary encoding/exporting "engine" of Premiere Pro. Sending something "to" MediaEncoder simply allows Premiere to keep working while the encoding is going on.
So ... I guess I don't understand your problem here with Me ...
So, I wanted Premiere to export the video itself without needing to open Media Encoder, but I don't think there's a way, because you said Media Encoder is the primary engine, thank you for your time
The underlying working process is Premiere uses Me for all encodes ... period. Whether you see it via sending to it or encode "through" Premiere. It only opens a UI for it when you 'send to ... ' Me. That's the only difference.
So no matter how you export/encode, it's done by Me.
In my test, AME did not open. I thought the render and the upload were VERY slow, however.
Were you rendering entirely through commands in the Frame.io window? I only played with this a little bit, so I may be missing something.
yes, only through the Frame.io window, I click on upload and then "active sequence", it asks for the preset and it starts rendering in AME
Currently, there is no way to use the "Upload Active Sequence" option in the Frame.io panel without calling Adobe Media Encoder. If you already have it open, it saves a decent amount of time. In After Effects, the Frame.io panel uses aerender instead, so it won't open Media Encoder.
What is it about the use of Media Encoder that you dislike? Is it the visual of having another app open, performance, waiting on another app, something else?
Rendering that file through Premiere would mean that Premiere would completely stop as soon as you clicked to execute the render. That is what it always does, any time you 'render' or export straight from Premiere. Premiere has to shut down all other functions during a render.
So they assumed users would want to keep working while doing the renders for Frame.io, hence using MediaEncoder.
I don't know what your concerns are with using Me. Having been through this with the engineers, Premiere has enough Me code embedded within it to do a single 'render' option. The code is "borrowed" directly from Me, it essentially is Me within Premiere. The engineers who work on all their exporting aren't assigned to Pr "or" Me ... they're the same people. It's the same code.
So I have no clue what your concern would be.
Nice to meet you, Patrick! Just spent a number of hours with many of your colleagues here at NAB. And glad you're popping in.
And I just remembered, we never got over to the Frame.io booth, though we spent hours at the Adobe and other booths. Oops ...
Not to worry. I spent the majority of my time at the Adobe booth. Maybe we ran into each other and just didn't know it!
Hi Patrick, so, my annoyances are basically the ones you mentioned (Is it the visual of having another app open, waiting on another app), but I believe it's a matter of habit, it's a new tool in my daily life, I'll adapt, thanks for the time 🙂
Let me know if you find adapting to be annoying or difficult. Thank you for your patience.
