Anyone know if there's a better way to report errors like these to Adobe
besides posting on the forum and crossing your fingers?
(Though it's already an acknowledged bug, so other than giving them a piece of your mind, probably won't accelerate the process anyway, unfortunately. But it might make you feel better )
thanks! Ha, maybe it would...
Sorry if the last post was a bit gloomy; I was just venting a little. I've
been keeping tabs on this post for a while now, waiting for this bug to be
addressed, and I guess I'm getting impatient. I guess I just figured it
would be be fixed by now (it sounded like Adobe engineers were working on it
more than half a year ago).
Oh well, I'll just keep waiting with my fingers crossed.
Thanks for your link. I assumed, Adobe is monitoring this forum. I just sent a bug report with this issue.
Our project depends on F4V 2 pass encoding. If this problem stays unsolved we will run into problems.
I have ended up having to go back to using the AME CS 4 version to get the 2 pass vbr to .f4v option working again. Not sure if I'm sacrificing too much in quality doing this...It definately runs a lot slower than the CS5 option...but it works.
Hope Adobe get moving on fixing this. Does anyone know if there is an alternative viable solution for creating a 2 pass vbr .f4v file?
To me this constitutes a broken product. 2 pass encoding is crucial to any serious editor and the fact that Adobe has been aware of this issue for quite some time and has yet to release a fix is disappointing to say the least...better late than never Adobe!
I don't know if this issue is resolved in CS5.5. Our turn around in the moment: Clean fresh installation of CS5 without any offered updates. This work's!
CS 5.5 is not a theme; we are thinking about a change to another product in future.

I'm having the same problem. Has this issue been resolved in AME CS5.5? If so, is that going to be a free download, as version 5 apparently was/is?
Unfortunately, No. On AME 5.0 you are only offered updates to version 5.0.1, which does NOT work for 2-pass F4V encoding. This has been very irksome since the fix seems to have been worked out for almost a year now, but they decided to roll it into the next release and force a paid update to get it. We've been forced to remain on version 5.0.0 of AME in order to do our encodes.
I've been frustrated by this bug ever since getting CS5. Am I missing something, or is Adobe really allowed to not fix a known bug - which they know how to fix - but instead require the poor user to pay yet more money for CS5.5? Could they not be prosecuted by trading standards (in the UK) - is there an equivalent in the US?
I use Windows 7, and there was never a fix, unless you bought CS5.5 - which I'm told did fix the issue. I bought CS5 in order to fix a multicam issue that was a known bug in CS4. So if I buy CS5.5 in order to fix the 2-pass bug, I wonder what new bugs there will be that will require users to buy CS6 when it appears...
Oh, that would be the massive amount of stuff that went MIA from Audition version 3 to CS5.5 (version 4). The official solution was to wait until cs6 for something as simple as putting the tone genereator back in. At least they didn't drop the ability to select a color from photoshop in cs5.1
