I need help with Adobe Media Encoder. I'm making proxies for my 4k footage that I imported into Premiere Pro and so it opened up Media Encoder to make the proxies. However it kept crashing so I re-imported the footage two times to restart the encoding proxies process (this was not a good idea as I'll explain later).
So now I'm in media encoder and it is taking its sweet time making these proxies, but there is 3 of every clip and they appear to be in random order. I have gone through multiple times and deleted the duplicates from the queue, but every time media encoder opens back up the duplicates are there. I just want to set it so it won't make duplicate proxies. Right now it's making 2 or three by putting "Proxy_1" or "Proxy_2" at the end of the file name. The only setting I found to change was how the duplicate proxies are named, I can't find how to prevent media encoder from making duplicate proxies in the first place. Please help this is driving me crazy, as I think I am making progress only to check and see the same 30 clips getting duplicated over and over.
Each time you import, those proxies are generated again. Stop doing that. Let the first one's finish. If AME crashes, restart it to continue, don't start over.
