Adobe Media Encoder CC 2015.1

Overview of What’s New in Adobe Media Encoder CC 2015.1

If you have a Creative Cloud membership, you always have access to the latest version of Adobe Media Encoder. Go to the Creative Cloud site to download applications or to sign up for Creative Cloud.

For more information about Creative Cloud, see this overview video and the Creative Cloud FAQ list.

Expanded UHD Support

Media Encoder will offer Expanded UHD capabilities with the addition of support for XAVC Long GOP, DNxHR, and the new HEVC (H.265) codec, which, at 60% the size of comparable H.264 files, is ideal for delivering pristine 4K content online.

Publish to Facebook

Render and publish content to Facebook in one fell swoop. Easily showcase work, promote projects, or support social media campaigns on a platform where something in the order of 3 billion videos are viewed each day. Along with Facebook support, Destination Publishing also allows you to render and send video to Creative Cloud, Vimeo, and YouTube, giving you a super-fast delivery system for public or password protected video content.

Improved Image Sequence Support

After Effects artists rejoice! You will soon be able to automate rendering for image sequences from After Effects (and other 3D apps) with new Watch Folder support for OpenEXR. Streamline your workflow for frame-based content and offload rendering so that you can continue working in After Effects.

Automatic Loudness Correction

Loudness standards are now critical for the delivery of digital content. All you need to do is check the box in the next release of Media Encoder to apply automatic Loudness correction and deliver content with confidence, knowing that your deliverables meet broadcast standards.

MXF Channelization

Ensure that you meet changing broadcast content requirements with flexible MXF channelization. Export audio within single or multiple audio tracks.

IRT compliance

The IRT compliance in Media Encoder CC ensures that your content conforms to German broadcast standards. IRT (Institut für Rundfunktechnik) publishes the technical guidelines and specifications of Germany’s public broadcasters. There are six MXF Profiles for HD program material as specified by ARD, ZDF, ORF and ARTE. There are presets in Adobe Media Encoder that correspond to each of these profiles.

New effects

Under the Effects tab you will now find SDR Conform and Video Limiter effects to give you even more control over the look of your final output’s color.

And there’s more

The next Media Encoder release also included IMX audio options to create PCM encoded audio (instead of AES3) and 16 channel export, new Time Interpolation settings for improved frame-rate conversion, and the app icon in the dock/taskbar will now show the progress of your encodes.

Notable bug fixes

  • XAVC Intra preset names have been updated.
  • Various improvements to DNxHD
  • Improved speed when smart rendering sequences with many cuts
  • Official support for OS X El Capitan
  • Improvements to MXF OP1a – Match Source (Rewrap) functionality
  • Many workflow and stability improvements

    Thanks a lot for this update. I just wanted to ask is there any way to control output file naming in AME when it automatically imports an AEP from a watch folder and process a top comp from a project panel. In AME 2014 an output file was named after respective AEP name, but in AME 2015 it was changed to take a comp name and pass it to an output file. So is there any option for user to control this rule?
    Thanks a lot in advance for your answer.

    is the bug fixed where the lumetri color effects weren’t making the transition over to the application? i queued about 6 different edits with media encoder and found none of my lumetri color effects were applied after they finished. i had to go back and export each sequence individually within premiere wasting precious editing time.

      This shouldn’t be happening so please let us know if it is in 2015.1.

      thanks
