It is also Standalone and can be opened separately as an application.
I initially looked for the stand alone version in my CS5 folder with nothing.
I already tried all the obvious export options and render Q and nothing there either.
Render Queue is in After Effects .
Adobe Media Encoder must be in your Programs (Applications) as standalone if you installed the Suite correctly.
PPRO: Menu Bar> File>Export
(must be in your Premiere. There is no way to not have it)
Cant help you anymore sorry.
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder CS5\Adobe Media Encoder.exe
Does a normal installation of CS4 and CS5 add an icon to AME on the Desktop, or must a user create the shortcut to it?
Just curious here.
PS - actually, I cannot recall what earlier versions did with similar, as I usually go into my program folders and find apps., like Bridge, and add the shortcut, immediately after installation. Same for the old Image Ready from PS up to CS2 - I like having the shortcuts handy, even if one has access to them from within the "master" program.
In Win 7 ...CS5 applications are installed to "ALL Programs" Menu as a Folder with all the applications.
I have always created a Desktop short cut to those I want from there.
I dont think any versions have auto installed the icons to the desktop.
Its still curious why the OP cant access AME from within PPRO.
(Maybe Harm was correct and the OP was wanting to find it on the HDD)
I suspect noob error !.
Thanks. Like I mentioned, I will create any shortcuts, that might not come up automatically, so cannot even remember which shortcuts were created on installation, and which ones I just added.
No, no shortcut is created automatically on the desktop.
