When exporting videos from Photoshop, it would be great being able to export it to the Adobe Media Encoder instead of directly in Photoshop. Hopefully this could speed up the process a bit!

I even think that AME should be packed with photoshop app.

The idea of using an outside app like AME and converting several export presets at the same time using an "Watch Folder" would set photoshop free to perform next edition items while AME is processing and exporting sevral kind of files to several places.

This is a very powerfull tool that video apps using but photoshop should be already using too.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop should use the full Adobe Media Encoder.

Since you're able to edit and export videos with Photoshop, the full Adobe Media Encoder should be part of it and not just a stripped down version.

I do not agree at all, but it depends on the amount of saves or export one must deal with during a day. On my experience, when I have a whole team saving 500 images per day on each single computer, this ability to send to another app the saving long process like a queue (leaving photoshop free to continue editing other new images!!) makes a lot of difference on big amount of images data processing.

So, it depends on the team and the quantity of images one have to deal with day-by-day.

The broadcast industry and film industry know and experiment this for years, and that's why they had to invent AME to queue/process that.


My question was, why not to add this to my team? 
6000 images per day justifies that. If it existed, I could have less "waiting for photoshop to be idle to deal with the next image".
