    Is it possible to render more than one timeline or do you have to do each one individually?
    I’d also like to know how to add multiple timelines to the Media Encoder instead or individually.

    Thanks in advance

    Hey Lou… someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but I think you only need to render TL’s in order to get full-res previews. There’s a check-box somewhere to actually use TL render files as output to an encode. (I’m guessing you’re coming from FCP like me)

    As to adding TLs to ME, in Encoder, just add a file, select your PPro project, and a dialog opens showing all your TLs, clips, etc to choose from. Pretty cool.

    Exactly right.

    PPro doesn’t have a “render all timelines” feature because…we don’t have to render any if we don’t want to. You go straight to the Media Encoder…

    Or, to do what Bob stated through Media Encoder, launch Media Encoder itself, and you’ll find you can load a Premiere Pro project…sequence by sequence as you like…as well as AE compositions.

    Leave for the night and take care of all your sequence exports as well as your AE renders.

    This is really cool unless you actually want to WATCH your timeline in real time.
    If there are AE clips and interviews with multiple effects etc., then EVERY computer is going to have some amount of dropped frames. Batch processing in Media Encoder is great for the end of the day but there will always be a need to see a timeline play down in real time with all effects rendered.

    So I’m guessing the answer is NO. I have to manually open then render each timline right?

    Is there a way from within Premiere to add multiple timelines to the Media Encoder?

    [Lou Borella] “This is really cool unless you actually want to WATCH your timeline in real time.

    Well, at some point, all computers will. I think the users on newer machines are finding that serious CPU core and RAM count with a CUDA card does handle far more of that than many would suspect.

    But you are correct, there is no way to render multiple sequences inside PPro…and the only way to load multiple sequences into the AME queue simultaneously is from AME. (You can only send them to queue one at a time). I think the idea there is that multiple sequences are easier to load…not to mention multiple sequences that are from multiple projects (as opposed to having to open each edit project in PPro to export it separately).

    Apparently you can link to Premiere Pro sequences by opening them in Media Encoder, but isn’t that process for rendering and EXPORT. What if you want to simply render your TIMELINE!

    Here’s an IDEA:

    Cut and past all your timelines into one big sequence and render that. When you go back to your original sequence, viola, the renders carry over.

    (You can even keep the big sequence around in a junk bin, so that if you ever need to do it again you don’t have to rebuild. You would render that sequence and then spend a couple minutes rendering any changes or new pieces in the individual sequences.)

    I just tried out this idea and it did not work. It would have worked in Avid. Strange, because with Premiere I have rendered clips in one time and found that they were now rendered everywhere.

    Sequence setting were the same, literally copied and pasted.. Wonder what I did wrong.

    Here we are ~10 years later and I found your question whilst looking for the same answer. I just found that if one selects the sequences in the project window the command “Render In to Out” does work on that multiple timeline selection, and they’re all rendered.

    My current setup is Adobe Premiere Pro 2022 on Windows 10. Do let me know if you find this works for you as well please?
