Sending Multiple Sequences to Media Encoder and Long Time "preparing data for export"?

Errol LazareSending Multiple Sequences to Media Encoder and Long Time "preparing data for export"?

In FCP we were able to select multiple sequences and send them to Compressor and they would be added within 2 seconds.

In Premiere, I am trying to send 6x2hr sequences to media encoder and I can only add one at the time. What makes things worse is that it takes 10-minutes to send each sequence while I wait for the "preparing data for export" message. So that is a total of 1hr to send all sequences before I can hit Render and walk-away.

To me this seems very inefficient. Is this normal? And is it possible to send multiple sequences at once?

I guess the thing I am most disappointed about here is the time it takes for premiere and encoder to communicate with each other. Even something like changing the bitrate on a clip that is sitting in media encoder takes 2-3 minutes just for dynamic link to connect back to the clip export settings tab.

Any ideas to streamline this or make things a bit more efficient? Or is this something that I need to live with using adobe software.

My machine is a 8-Core mac pro 2.4 with 32 gigs of ram and I am running a 4 disk Raid 5 using Esata to connect to my mac.

Please clarify what you mean by "sending" them to Media Encoder. From Premiere? Are all the sequences in the same project?

First thing I would do is build preset(s) you plan to use inside Media Encoder. Then I'd use File/Add Premiere Pro Sequence from inside Media Encoder. Navigate to your project and you'll be presented with all the sequences from that project. Select however many you want and then drag your preset onto each instance. Set the destination and away you go.

Hello Paul,

Thanks for your input. By sending, I mean exporting to media encoder from Premiere pro. I will try your idea for adding multiple sequences by importing the project file into AME.

Thanks,
Errol

I'm having similar issues. I however drag a series of sequences from Premiere directly into the Encoder interface. In CS6 the sequences would load like wildfire. Now each sequences can take up to a minute or more to load over.

I've also been seeing a "Connecting to Dynamic Link Server" message pop up now and I've never seen that before.
