What do you like best?
Whereas with adobe premiere pro cc 2017 and after effects there are only so many formats and presets to choose from, media encoder gives many options including older settings. Our company is a PC based production company so encoder allows us to convert .mov files with ease. These files are still in audio sync when rendered.
What do you dislike?
-The default interface can be confusing. It is best to create your own work space suited to your needs especially if it is repetitive.
-The loud goat noise if a render failed. It is very obnoxious.
-Takes a lot of computing power.
Recommendations to others considering the product
-Create your own work space and save it for repetitive tasks.
-Before big renders, do a test render with lower bit rate. If you screw up you won't waste hours of rendering time. Get it right, then do a full HD render.
-Rendering big complex files requires a lot of power. Do not work on major stuff while rendering because your CPU often goes up to 90%+ usage.
-The more ram your computer has the faster things will render. You can also set the amount of ram for adobe products to adjust rendering times.
