Excellent tool, even for beginners

What do you like best?

Media Encoder makes it easy to convert files from nearly any format to nearly any format. It's interface is clear and straightforward and even better- it works with nearly all of the Adobe authoring tools like Premiere and After Effects.

Media encoder can be a lifesaver when it comes to converting lots of files or archiving footage. I use it on a daily basis. It also makes converting files for the web (facebook, Youtube) easy for anyone, not jus the tech savvy.

The best part of Media encoder is the ability to continue rendering while still working in Premiere or other programs. So basically I can render a show, and then go on working on my next show. Saves on downtime.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was an easy tool for timecode burn in or extremely lightweight profiles for proxies. I have to still sometimes use Episode because it doesn't have as many options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Add more options for effects (timecode burn-in/timecode conversion) and other metadata tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use media encoder for converting files for the web, sending to clients and exporting from AfterEffects. It also allows us to be rendering while still working on something else in premiere.

Great Encoder Software for Creative Cloud

What do you like best?

It's fast and lightweight, offering a wide variety of formats and codecs. You can send a project or file directly from After Effects and Premiere, giving it an edge over other encoders like Compressor and Handbrake. It's very stable and provides many common presets. Creating new presets is a painless process and the app gives you fine grain control over the output settings.

What do you dislike?

The lack of a few codecs has frustrated me in the past, but there's always an alternative. Sometimes it takes a while for a project sent from After Effects of Premiere to show up in the render queue. I've waited almost 5 minutes for a larger project to appear.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great encoder that plays nicely with Premiere and After Effects. It's fast and easy to use!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fast encoding with ease, multiple formats and export options. I can continue working while a render is in progress, saving me lots of time while working.

Great for rendering and conversion

What do you like best?

Allows me to render videos while continuing to work in After Effects (which is impossible if one uses AE's rendering feature). Also great for converting/compressing video files using virtually every codec/format under the sun.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes can take a long time to get going, renders will sometimes fail unexpectedly

Recommendations to others considering the product

In my experience, rendering using GPU acceleration works much faster than Software Only, but your mileage may vary depending on your graphics card. Try both methods and see which works better for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a motion graphics designer, I need Media Encoder to deliver files to clients who have very specific requirements when it comes to file format, bitrate, codec and audio compression. After Effects' rendering feature does not have nearly as much customization as Media Encoder does.

Saves my life all the time!

What do you like best?

The best feature in Encoder is the mass amounts of videos that it can crank out. You are able to load up as many videos as you want and set each one to encode differently. The encoding process doesn't have to stop when loading in more videos. It's great to have any project from any Adobe product easily open Encoder when directed. I love that you can even remove items from the queue when you catch a mistake in your project.

What do you dislike?

There are times when it get's buggy but that's nothing too terrible. It can be slow to open at times when you bump it through other programs like Premiere or After Effects. I do wish there was a simple "delete" button to get things out of your queue instead of the minus symbol.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great solution to those who would like to continue working without having the export slow you down. Encoder is a workhorse, all you exports will load up the queue and you can edit the codec even while its exporting previous items.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Encoder has solved the entire exporting process. I can continue to work in Premiere and After Effects smoothly all the while my videos that are ready, are exporting away in Encoder. It doesn't slow down the other programs in the least bit. You can even move your videos within the queue if you need a certain thing to export first.

Small, fast, powerful

What do you like best?

Adobe Media Encoder is essential if you work with After Effects or edit in Premiere, but even if you don't, it's still a powerful little media manager. I love having the ability to set watch folders for projects that require a lot of ripping from the internet. And the ability to export from Premiere or After Effects while still being able to work in them is a real time saver.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice to be able to designate a place for the processed watch clips to go, and it would be great to have a watch folder look at subfolders as well. At my job we increment our assets folders by day, which means setting up a new watch folder each day.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Media Encoder is a must have if you work in Adobe's Creative Cloud.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Media Encoder to export postings for clients, as well as to transcode clips from the internet if we're working on a project sourced from multiple different locations.

Dedicated tool for exporting media files.

What do you like best?

The queue is handy, and integrates with both Premiere and After Effects. It becomes especially useful if you also use the rest of the Adobe Suite for video editing, as the integrations are good and only keep getting better.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything I dislike. Perhaps my use of the tool is narrow, but it seems so straight forward, as it is intended to do just one thing well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a straightforward tool for the job. It does exactly what it says. It encodes media. If you are serious about video editing, and plan to use the Adobe Suite, then Media Encoder is just a must. I am not sure if you can purchase Media Encoder as a standalone application, but it could still be useful as a media converter.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've used media encoder to export After Effects projects as well as from Premiere. In some cases it is for larger comps, and in other cases batching many files when trimming down source media. Though, I don't think we'll have much of a choice as it seems Adobe is moving the export functions of Premiere and After Effects on to Media Encoder.
