“I’m using the latest version of Media Encoder CC 2018 on Windows 10. It doesn’t contain HEVC codec. I have HEVC in Premiere but not AME. I’ve followed recommended steps in threads on with no luck. Is there anything I can do to go through this?”

Although Adobe claims to have full support for H.265 HEVC files, users still have HEVC H.265 codec missing issues one or another. For those who are unable to export HEVC media in Adobe Media Encoder, transcoding to HEVC codec would solve the issue.
