Removing MKV Format support has a negative impact on the workflow of people that work with broadcasting software like OBS. Restore MKV support. Having native support for MKVs, even if they don't edit well without generating proxies, saves me a ton of time that I'd otherwise have to spend remuxing/transcoding files.

Hi all,

MKV support is actively being worked on. I don't have a release date to share currently but when that changes, I will update this message.

Regards,

Fergus

In Archives around the world, the Matroska wrapper and ffv1 codec is a widely accepted open format for digital preservation. The lack of the ability for the Adobe Encoder to handle this wrapper, which is used extensively within archives as a preferred format for born digital use is a real problem. Please add the MKV format to the already great product and make a lot of people happier.

The MKV ffv1 format is starting to be very common in the cinema archival world. It would be great be able to export them directly from premiere pro.

Thanks!

Software development is outside my area of expertise, which is my only excuse for not creating the solution myself.

The participation of the Audiovisual Archives in the world supporting the best audiovisual postproduction programs that in turn support the use of the MKV container should be sufficient reason to invest in its development

With support for for MKV container format should come support for the FFv1 video format and FLAC audio format. This combination is undergoing standardization by the IETF CELLAR working group for use in digital audiovisual preservation. Unlike ProRes and DNxHD, FFv1 is a truly lossless and open format. Due to its flexibility and technically superiority it is used in-house at my production firm as a lossless intermediate and archival format.

Due to the limitations for Premiere/AME, for now users can losslessly re-mux MKV into the ancient AVI or MOV formats using the free, open-source ffmpeg tool:

ffmpeg -i input.mkv -map 0 -c copy output.mov

Results may vary depending on the input formats and Premiere's support for such formats.

LPCM audio is a must have for archival users. H.264, H.265, and AAC would be useful for general use. The list could go on but that would be a good start.
